Great Tone! Cheap Switch/Design
on March 19, 2013
I first heard of Fulltone through professional musicians. This pedal is every bit as advertised for tone.
However, the switches and bypass design are not real swift. They pop when engaging the channels, particularly the distortion channel - and it is LOUD! Pedals should not do that. I also tested out a used pedal in the music store; the distortion switch on that one only occasionally engaged. While the used pedal could have had a history of abuse, I speculate the switches are simply cheap and the design is not true bypass. I can hear all sorts if noise when I play with the other settings on the pedal, as well. I moved pedal in my chain order, to no avail.
This was the last thing I expected out of a Fulltone. Right now I'm just trying to turn it on/off while there's lots of noise going on stage.
I like the pedal's tone, but the device is quickly becoming expendable. I'm downgrading my rating to 3 stars. Give it a C.
