Overview

Featuring a unique circuit design, the MXR FET Driver captures the rich, creamy sound of an overdriven tube amplifier by cascading an op-amp gain stage into a FET stage. The FET Driver thickens up lead tones with musical, amp-like distortion and sustain without the fragility and inconsistency associated with tubes.

The FET Driver features a simple but responsive set of controls. Set your volume level with the Output control, and then use the Drive control to dial in the grit, from subtle soft-clipping to early stage distortion. Fine tune the FET Driver's sound by tweaking Hi and Lo boost/cut controls, and push the Hi Cut switch to roll off high end frequencies when playing in high volume situations where excess noise is apparent.

FEATURES

  • Rich, tube-like overdrive and distortion
  • Active EQ section for fine tonal sculpting
  • 100% analog and true bypass

      Comments about MXR FET Driver Guitar Effects Pedal:

      NEEDS AN ISOLATED POWER SUPPLY.

      I give this product 4 stars because of something that's not in the manual. It sounds fantastic, but when I put it on my pedal board it made a noticeable whistling sound even while bypassed.

      I was about to return the pedal when I found an online forum with a thread dedicated to the exact issue I was having. The problem relates to the fact that these pedals do not work well in a daisy chain type power system (like a Dunlop DC Brick or OneSpot). They need either a battery or a dedicated wall adapter. If they share a power supply with other pedals they whistle. When I hooked up my extra power supply to the Fet Driver it was quiet as a mouse when not engaged. I highly recommend this pedal, but just be aware of this problem because it is not in the pedal's user manual.

        Comments about MXR FET Driver Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This is a great pedal, yea, if not connected with a isolated good power supply it makes an unbearable high pitch soubd, but with a good power supply it is the best driver I have ever heard... I prefer this to the tube driver because it is not as harsh... it is smooth, fat and creamy...
        No other drive soubds like it, it aounds very unique.
        I think mxr will discontinue this since people did not respond well to it, but it will become a clasic with time... it just soubds too good not to.

          Comments about MXR FET Driver Guitar Effects Pedal:

          This is a great pedal that really does sound like the Tube Drivers employed by guys like Eric Johnson. I loved it the moment I plugged it in and tried it out. IT NEEDS AN ISOLATED POWER SUPPLY. I came within a few hours of returning it because of a high pitched whistling noise it put in my signal chain until I found a review page where someone was complaining of the exact same issue. They tracked it down to the power supply - if you put this in a daisy chained power supply (including things like the Dunlop DC Brick) it will whistle. It needs its own dedicated power supply or battery.
