Fulltone makes some amazing products. I am huge fan of their work. This review may come off as little biased because I enjoy the quality of their pedals, but I think that most people who know pedals, knows how well the Fulltone line of gear operates.

I love this pedal because it is basically two pedal in one. It has the overdrive side and the boost side for solos or another simple drive channel.

Fulltone Fulldrive2 MOSFET Overdrive/Clean Boost Guitar Effects Pedal Features:

* Offers clean boost and overdrive via two channels
* Durable, 16-gauge steel enclosure
* Volume, Tone, Overdrive, Boost controls
* Selectable Vintage/CompCut and MOSFET/Standard modes
* True bypass


UTILIZATION

Mini-Toggle #1

* "Vintage" for old-style Fd2 mid-heavy tones that cut through the mix
* "FM" stands for "flat-mids" offering a more natural sound but I've enhanced this mode for even more transparency, it sounds great on a strat's Neck Pickup, truly spectacular! .
* "CompCut" feature removes the bounding from the feedback loop allowing for Monster Clean Boost tones and some rougher OD sounds with the OD and Boost knobs turned up

Mini-Toggle #2

* choice between MOSFET and Normal clipping modes
* "normal mode" is even more asymmetrical, sweeter, more open, no "blanket" over the sound.
* moved the LED's, borrowed the OCD's super bright LED's with (Fulltone's exclusive) "no thump/No pop" True Bypass.
* a beautiful sparkle Blue Metallic powder-coat finish for this...the final version of the most popular boutique OD ever made.


SOUND QUALITY

This particular pedal sounds great in pretty much any guitar and any amp. I tend to lean towards Fender Strat's, Charvel's, and Gisbon Les Paul's going into a Marshall style amp or some kind. If you have a good amp that takes pedals well like a Fender Twin or a Vox AC30 then you will love this pedal.

This pedal works great in front of an already overdriven high gain amplifier. It really responds well to you your playing dynamics and touch. The tone is thick and warm. One of the best if not best overdrive pedals that Fulltone makes.

OVERALL OPINION

This is a fantastic pedal that is capable of so many options and versatility. At new these units come in at around $150 which is a steal in my opinion. To basically have two pedal in one for the price of most single overdrives is great. That is probably why this pedal is one of Fulltone's highest sold units.

I would recommend this pedal to anyone who needs to have a couple pedal in one and doesn't want to give up a tone of space on his pedal board. One of the best priced units available anywhere.
