The very first effects pedals date back to the 1960s and '70s, and it didn't take long for them to become must-have accessories for every guitarist. Now, 50 years later, effects are better than ever thanks to plenty of help along the way from manufacturers like Fulltone. Making their debut in the early 1990s, Fulltone effects pedals instantly raised the bar on pedal quality with game-changers like the OCD Obsessive Compulsive Drive, OF-2 Octafuzz and SB-2 Soul-Bender. And that's just the beginning of what Fulltone has to offer in this section.
Great guitarists tend to know great effects pedals the moment they try them, which is probably why the Fulltone MDV Mini DéjaVibe/Chorus Pedal is one of Joe Satriani's favorites. It's designed to give you the exact vintage experience of a 1960s Univibe, delivering the kind of phase-chorused tone that made Jimi Hendrix's "Machine Gun" so amazing. What's more, this miniaturized version of the classic vibe is small enough to fit on any pedalboard, so you won't have any trouble getting it set up when you break it out at every gig.
You don't have to take our word for the quality of these pedals, or even Satriani's for that matter - just check out some of the best-rated and top-selling units and see what other musicians have to say about them. The Fulltone Fulldrive3 Overdrive, ST-1 Supa-Trem Tremolo and PlimSoul Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal are all great examples of stompboxes that have guitarists of all kinds singing their praises. Want something truly out of the ordinary? Check out the TTE Delay Effect Tube Tape Echo to see Fulltone's vintage-style effects at their best.
Of course, we could make a good argument that any of these Fulltone guitar effects pedals is "Fulltone at its best," because their track record shows that their best is what Fulltone gives every time. That's why Fulltone pedals are the go-to units for musicians like Eric Johnson, Tom Petty and Peter Frampton, and it's what makes them incredible additions to your own collection as well. Try a Fulltone for yourself and it won't take long for you to see how they earned their stellar reputation.
