What's better than overdrive? MORE OVERDRIVE! That's what you get with the Fulltone Fulldrive2 MOSFET overdrive pedal. Two raging channels of drive and more drive make the Fulldrive2 MOSFET what it is. Start with a mellow, bell-like clean, uncompressed gain boost with just the first hint of crunchy breakup — then slam it into high gear and unleash the beast that is Boost Mode. In Boost Mode, the Fulldrive2 MOSFET gives you all the gain and sustain you need to wail out rock leads and metal mayhem. And you get all the controls and mini toggles you need to define your brand of destruction! Plus, this thing is nearly indestructible, built in a though metal housing. Even the pots are mounted extra hard, not held together by the terminals like those weak and pathetic pedals. So you're golden, even if you thrash your effects while you're tearing it up.

Anyway, I decided to visit my local Guitar Center and finally give the Fulldrive2 a try. I was immediately pleased with how quickly I was able to dial in some great sounds. The fun didn't last long, though, as the pedal began to have technical (short circuit) issues when switched to certain modes. I forgot to mention that the pedal I demoed was a "floor model," so the issues must have been due to the abuse inflicted by a thousand or more curious people like me over the last several years. So, I wasn't able to use the different modes. The boost feature, though, did work but it was hit or miss. I knew I'd have to test that function with my own gear and playing application. I ordered the pedal through Amazon and got it a few days later.
I play a Gibson ES-335 into a Fender Supersonic tube amp with many different pedals between. I hooked up the Fulldrive2, and once again played with it and tweaked it until I found *that* sound again: warm, thick, smooth tone driving my amp to pure sonic perfection. Then, reluctantly I hit the boost switch. To my surprise, it wasn't as bad as I remembered from my Guitar Center experience. It added more mid-range boost and seemed to muffle the high-end a little, but I warmed up to it as soon as I realized that it serves as a great boost for soloing (no surprise, eh?) when playing along to backing tracks. It really pops out of the mix just right without sounding nasally.
All in all, this pedal is very good, from the amount of available gain to the unlimited tone possibilities to the unique modes that really help you sculpt the sound you're looking for. Here's my impression of the different modes that this pedal offers:
- Standard/Mosfet: the main difference here is that Mosfet mode has a very noticeable mid-frequency boost. I prefer the Standard mode over the Mosfet because it suits my sound.
- CompCut is essentially a clean boost. I don't use it because I already have another great pedal that I use exclusively for boosting.
- FM/Vintage overdrive modes: The Vintage mode seems to have more of a mid-boost than the FM mode. I prefer the FM.
Before the Fulldrive2, I used the Boss SD-1, which I liked but was never completely satisfied. From what I've read, the circuitry of the Fulldrive2 might be based on that of the SD-1. So, that made the decision to try it/buy it much easier. Do some research on forums, and you'll find out more technical information than you'd probably care to know!
It's not difficult to see how every mode and combination of modes and dial positions might work for a variety of music styles. It's all about whether it works with your favorite guitar, amp, compressor, eq, and other effects pedals --- and of course, the song. For my needs and taste, the Fulldrive2 is perfect.
I mainly play relatively clean through a tube amp and use this pedal to simply cut through on the leads.
I don't use this pedal for searing leads or ultra dirty sounds - just a little dirt - and two levels of it.
It makes a good single channel amp act like a three channel amp and so far it is working great!
Main amps - 1960 Bassman - 2012 Fender Hot Rod Deluxe - 1957 Fender Bandmaster - these amps sound great with this pedal - I don't use all three at the same time but one of these amps is with me when I play out.
This pedal is very versatile and there are lots of good sounds in there so you will probably find something you like in there - but I don't think it will metal very well by itself but it would kick the front end of a good tube amp into another level of distortion pretty good.
Still lovin' this pedal. You gotta run it on 18 volts to really wake it up.
This pedal has a lot of various dirty sounds - and is very versatile.
I would purchase another if I needed it.
Worth every penny.
Pro tip: If you are mounting this on a pedal board, unscrew the back panel to remove the feet. Store the feet inside the casing in case you ever want to use the feet or sell the pedal.
