  • simple pedal

    As reviewed by Jeremy on 8/1/2008

    I have the Fulltone Full-Drive 2 MOSFET overdrive pedal, which has a lead boost feature. I bought this pedal for when I want a clean boost or a lead boost with none of the added overdrive gain of the FD-2. A simple pedal with only one application, but it does what it does well - and it has a cool blue LED that's visible on the darkest stage.

    When I write a review I try to provide a range of perspective for potential buyers by comparing pedals in hopes of relieving anxiety when making a decision. Something I wish I saw more of. For example, my main question about this pedal was.. "what exactly is the difference between the MC-401 and the MXR micro amp?"... so I had to buy them both to figure it out for myself. It's a simple pedal so this should be easy. The Micro amp is great, I love it... but this one is simply better. It's louder, brighter and has a much more clarity. It definitely met my expectations. So if you're a sound geek like me and want to know whether the extra $$ is worth it or not.. the answer is yes. Buy it.

    The first thing I noticed when I picked this out of the box was the build quality. The build quality is tremendous. I could probabally drop this down the stairs and wouldn't be effected. Custom Audio Electronics--Bradshaw is trusted by the pros. You'll see these pedals in many pro rigs. This is what peaked my interest. I run mostly analog pedals for drive and distortion and use a Line 6 M9 for effects and modulation through a tube amp. Not only did it make the M9 shine it brought my analog pedals to tone heaven and yes it does improve headroom. This pedal sits at the end of the chain and stays on 24/7. If you want to take your rig to tone heaven buy this pedal!!!
