Overview

This is the Fulltone "Secret Frequency. "Secret Freq." for short. Although it does the gig-friendly clean boost and OD thing as good as any, it goes well past that when asked to, right into Rock territory while retaining a natural sound.

Dynamic asymmetrical clipping gives the Secret Freq. a sweet, musical clean boost, juicy overdrive, and rich, touch responsive high gain sounds. Not like the PlimSoul, nothing like the OCD, and not like any other pedal, but worth the price of admission were you to use it simply as is for your "bread and butter" OD/Distortion pedal.

But the ˜Freq has WAY more tricks in its bag than your average transparent OD/Distortion... it just may knock a handful of OD/Distortions right off your 'board and straight on to Ebay thanks to another innocent looking knob labeled "Freq.".

Turn it Clockwise and the proprietary circuit adds as much as 20dB of active narrow band juicy MIDRANGE right where it does the most good. It˜s like installing a wah-wah right where the distortion is being generated. But unlike turning on your wah-wah along with a distortion pedal, with the ˜Freq. the bass and treble frequencies don't disappear. It's very unique, and not to be confused with a simple active or passive midrange control tacked on to the end of the circuit, as is the case with all other pedals you've tried with a "Mid" control. Adding the ˜Freq's midrange imparts WAY more sustain and lets you easily place the guitar in the mix where you want it, irrespective of volume... the soundman's not going to bury you anymore.

Along with a slew of basic great OD/Distortion pedal sounds, it allows you to replicate a very, very wide range of your favorite guitar & amp sounds. Remember that when the ˜Freq. knob is fully-counter-clockwise the Midrange enhancement effect is OUT of the picture and the pedal is a truly versatile and natural sounding pretty transparent OD/Distortion! At low to mid overdrive settings, turning the ˜Freq knob up a little gets hammer-of-the-Gods' penetrating PUNCH!

Turning the Freq setting to a more extreme (clockwise) setting will bring a smile to your face and evoke the coolest Jimmy Page, Brian May, Michael Schenker, Robin Trower, Tom Scholz tones that you just couldn't previously get without a bunch of studio EQ, just the right setting on a great wah-wah, or a slew of British amps. The prediction: the Secret Freq. is going to become an indispensable part of many guitarist's arsenals very soon.

Features
  • True Bypass On/Off switch
  • Distortion, Volume, Freq and Highs Knob
Specifications

    Output Impedance= as low as 10K (nice and low to so as not to load down your guitar cables or cause interference with other pedals.
    Max Voltage Gain= 60-80dBV (depending on settings, including the Freq knob)
    Current draw= 6 ma. (milliamps) which means a battery should last months, and 50ma,100ma, 200ma, 500ma, adapters are fine.

The Secret Freq? More like the Secret Weapon!

About Me Experienced

Comments about Fulltone Secret Frequency Overdrive/Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

I bought this pedal because it covers a wide range of crunch from mild overdrive to hard rock distortion. If tweaked the right way, it sounds just like the overdrive/distortion channel of my Fender Supersonic 60! Basically, this pedal rules!
