Overview

For many, many years you've basically had 2 choices for your overdrive and distortion pedals. You could either get "Soft-clipped" Bluesy, slightly compressed-type overdrive pedals, or you could get "Hard-Clipped" type distortion pedals.

Now, the Fulltone PlimSoul guitar effects pedal offers both distortion and overdrive for a great price.

The Fulltone PlimSoul guitar pedal has those softer, bluesey, compressed capabilities but also has a second stage that you can roll in with the turn of a little dial to add that firmer, crunchier, British output tube-style Distortion. What's more is you not only hear and feel it-you can see the Fulltone pedal reacting to your every mood via a fiery LED that glows brighter and dimmer depending on how distorted it is and how hard you're hitting it.

It's touch sensitive, cleans up with the guitar's volume control, sounds superb with either humbuckers or single coils. And with a 500kOhm input impedance and ideal super low 10K output impedance, the Fulltone PlimSoul plays nice with other effects pedals. It goes from very clean to very dirty, giving your tone a vast range of tonal control to customize to your liking.

The Fulltone overdrive/distortion pedal can blend both soft clip/hard clip distortion types, or isolate one or the other. The sound possibilities are truly endless.

This Fulltone guitar pedal offers extremely good sustain/feedback qualities, just the right amount of mids and bottom, great touch sensitivity, dynamics, and all those in-between shades available created using your guitar's volume control.

Features
  • Level control
  • Sustain control
  • Hi-cut control

Wanted: a solid state upgrade to my old tube overdrive; a compact choice that was battery powered (and didn't eat them up). I am a fan of Fulltone pedals and found all the solutions I needed with the quality I expect. But even though I also expect great sound from Fulltone products, this really impressed me. I had awesome tone right out of the box with however the knobs were when it was packed. Couldn't get a bad tone out of it. It's function is just as advertised. I use mostly non-master volume amps. With my Fender 2x10 Blackface it can get British stack-like with the 2nd stage to add the high end bite (but no sizzle), and something else in the circuit seems to naturally fatten the low end. With the second stage off, my blackface sounded more 4X10 tweed deluxe-like, lotta rumble & fullness but still with good mid-range based attack. With a 1X12 boutique Fender-type design, it has a well rounded classic rock tone too. Played well with my solid state amp too. Can get squealy if the second stage is pushed too far in some amp settings. You might want that; I know I'll probably use it. And it sounded great with all the classic types of guitars in my collection. Minor adjustments were all that were needed to fine tune Strat vs Gibson use, for example. After getting the PlimSoul in the rig I have felt renewed enthusiasm for just sitting at home with the amp, playing on my own; I found it inspiring. For classic rock and blues applications it has the right range of sound. I like the dark purple color and the battery hatch on the back. It's also quiet: surprisingly little background hum for a distortion pedal, even with a 40 watt tube amp wound up most of the way. I am very pleased

I was impressed by the full chording and the touch sensitivity. The lead response is good but I had to boost the mids through an EQ to stand out when playing live. Also, the low,bottom this pedal has also needed EQ'ing out. By itself, I wouldn't recommend it except for rhythm players. Through a small combo,this might be good because the lack of low end an midrange prence in smaller combos would benifit from this pedal.

    Comments about Fulltone PlimSoul Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I purchased the Plimsoul and feel that it exceeds the OCD by a longshot! Who doesn't want more right? It's really two pedals in one. A mild smooth overdrive until you engage the stage two knob that really covers all the bases! I love mine, and enjoy watching the blinking stage 2 led red light when slightly engaged. It sounds very good at all gain levels. Also the Plimsoul is very easy to dial in your tone with the hi-cut knob etc. I have used it at shows and it sounded great! I'm proud to own one as I am constantly trying to upgrade my gear. Have fun and stay safe!

      Comments about Fulltone PlimSoul Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I use the pedal with my Fender Deluxe Reverb and occasionally w/ my ocd 4 into the plimsoul into the amp. I use a tele with p-90 neck and single coil at the bridge and a Gibson 137 with a classic 57 humbuck in the neck. PlimSoul made all the difference.

      One of the best overdrive distortion pedal

      By Stan

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Fulltone PlimSoul Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

      The Plimsoul is probably the best Overdrive distortion pedal I've ever owned. With the sustain control and Stage 2 distortion you can get a variety of tones in low and high volumes. From smooth-sounding distortion to hard Rock or metal sound. It's very responsive to the smallest adjustment. I just love the sound.

        Comments about Fulltone PlimSoul Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Its a very cool pedal.
        I have a TS808 and a distortion plus and this one goes all the way from gentle to hairy and thick lush distortion.
        In a single coil guitar you can get that semi driven sound (clean with a bit of filth) more easily that with a les paul.
        all in all - A great great pedal

          Comments about Fulltone PlimSoul Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

          This is the first Fulltone pedal that I have ever owned. I must say that I am extremely happy with it. The tones you can get out of this pedal go anywhere from a dirty clean to hard rock crunch. I would recommend this overdrive pedal over any overdrive pedal I have seen on the market or used. It is built sturdy and has great tonal qualities. I am currently playing it through an AC 15 with a Paul Reed Smith Custom 24 SE.

              This is the best overdrive I have ever used. I use it to push my Vox AC4C1. It's high quality and you can tell from the sounds that come out of it. IT makes my amp come alive like its cranked.

                This is a good solid versatile OD/Distortion .I like this pedal but was not as blown away as I thought I may be with a pedal in this price range . I have 5 other Fulltone Pedals and love them all I just expected a little more magic for the money on this one .That being said this pedal has some good tones , for me it excels with the humbuckers on my les paul and is best for lead tones not as good for rythms.Single coils are just ok with this pedal and again lead tones excel not so much for the rytym stuff , all in all it has its applications , built well and looks cool .

                    I own many many many distortion pedals, but I've now taken them all of my board. The Plimsoul is as close to perfection as i have experienced. It is warm, full, thick, yet has some bite and edge. It is not too much distortion but I can make it squeal anytime I want. Very touch responsive, cleans up with your volume knob, gives nice and nasty. , This with humbuckers and a Marshall stack is as close to the EVH brown sound as I have been so far.

                      This pedal sounds fantastic. I've used it with a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, Twin Reverb, Deluxe Reverb, Vox AC30c2, and it's sounded great with every one.
                      I love the second gain stage. It adds a nice throatiness and sounds like natural tube style distortion. If you play blues, you can roll stage 2 all the way back, and put stage one halfway up for a nice creamy sound. If you want a nice crunchy rock sound, turn up stage two. This is not a one trick pony. It's built like all fulltone pedals, best components, high quality jacks and switches, and true bypass in a heavy duty metal casing. It may be more pricey than the OCD, but it's worth the extra money for the versatility.
