  • Boost (On/Off)



Chosen by Guitar Player Magazine as one of the all-time top 50 effects ever! We are the first to offer a switchable "Boost" Channel in an overdrive and manufacture our own Super-Duty 3PDT footswitch allowing True-Bypass plus LED.

  • "Vintage" for those old mid-heavy, thick mid-'90's FD2 tones that the Ebayers pay so much for.
  • "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 has been relocated from the volume Pot to the 3-way mini-toggle switch so you won't accidentally kick it while on stage.

Housed in a beautiful powder coated Blue 16ga.steel enclosure, the first channel is the "Overdrive Mode" capable of Clean Boost or non-compressed overdrive or choose light to medium softer Overdrives all while retaining your guitar's original tone. The Tone knob is a very effective Presence control that can smooth out or add upper harmonics.. There's also a footswitchable second channel "Boost Mode" with its own separate Distortion control for medium to higher gains with a more singing violin-like sustain!

This pedal gets its natural sound through the use of Asymmetrical Clipping and "Feedback Loop" circuit... a way of creating distortion high in even ordered harmonics like a Class A tube amp! True Bypass w/ LED is standard equipment.

Full-Drive devotees include:

  • The Rolling Stones
  • Robin Trower
  • The Black Crowes
  • Robben Ford
  • Ian Moore
  • Steve Stevens
  • Drew Zingg
  • Pete Anderson
  • John Abercrombie
  • ...

The circuit is based on the Ibanez TS-9 Tubescreamer.

Fulltone about 10th Anniversary MOSFET edition

To celebrate 10 years of the Fulldrive2 I've come up with a special MOSFET switchable version in Burnt Orange Metallic with White lettering! Beautiful looking, and the expanded sounds with the MOSFET switch are guaranteed to make this an instant classic!

What does the MOSFET setting offer? Amazingly rich mids and a very Dum***-like lead tone in "Vintage Mode"....in "FM Mode" an extremely chimey, open stinging Texas-Blues sound that cuts through any mix.

2016-05-20Mosfet8/10  A feature loaded overdrive with boost. Lots of hairy crunchy goodness to be found inside. ...
