Two voicings give you control over your sonic universe
With its new old stock JRC4558D chip and the very best of the original circuitry, Fulltone’s Fulldrive 3 nails the sound of the classic 1990s FD2 Fulldrive – and it’s awesome overdrive, take it from us. But technology marches on, so in addition to the original ’90s FD2 voicing, you also get the choice of a second “Wide Asymmetrical” voicing that delivers a sleek, contemporary overdrive sound that’s delightfully transparent and open-sounding. This amazing versatility makes the Fulldrive 3 a valuable component of your guitar rig.
JFET Clean Boost – your secret weapon for stage and studio domination
Fulltone gave the Fulldrive 3 an independent, discrete JFET Clean Boost with its own volume control. Why put a clean boost on an overdrive pedal? Well, at Sweetwater, we think this is a brilliant move. Long a cherished secret weapon of tone-savvy pro guitarists, clean boost lets you always be at the right volume, and it also lets you hit the front end of your tube amp just so. Put that in the same pedal with a killer overdrive circuit, and you’ve the versatility for stage and studio domination.
Germanium-diode “Limiting” function eliminates nasty spikes
You’ll notice a little black knob on the Fulldrive 3 – it’s labelled “Dynamics.” As you spin it clockwise, you’re dialing in a germanium-diode “Limiting” circuit that dials out the irritating, grating spikes many clean boosts produce when you dig into your strings. Believe us – the results sound completely gorgeous. It’s all in keeping with the care and design savvy that goes into every Fulltone pedal. If you’re in the market for a guitar overdrive pedal, we think the Fulltone Fulldrive 3 should be at the top of your list.
