Full Drive 3
Product Code: Full Drive 3
Fulltone Fulldrive 3.
The Fulldrive-2 has been a huge success over the yearswith 150,000 sold over the last 20 years. It's still on many Pro's pedalboards, now $149 MSRP / $120 street, and its not going ANYWHERE! But over the years people have asked: "Please offer a footswitchable independent Clean-Boost channel" as opposed to the FD2s footswitchable Distortion Boost function. So the Custom Shop "20th anniversary FD3" was born..5000 pcs. built and SOLD OUT in 8 months.
N.O.S. JRC4558D chip.
Fulltone-exclusive Order switch which places the Boost channel either before or after the Overdrive section of the circuit: After takes whatever sound you have set and increases the Volume so you pop out of the mix. Before pounds the input of the Overdrive channel and increases the distortion, there's not a substantial increase in volume...which is more like the FD2.
Three switchable Clipping Modes
"90's" original 90's warm FD2-like voicing. Transparent? NOT! Think Mids, rich Mids, Color, beautiful colour. You want transparent? You got the wrong mode.
"Wide Asym"...that's Wide Asymmetrical, for a beautiful, chimey, more open sound, even more asymmetrical than the FD2.
Comp-Cut mode: This mode removes all diode clipping from the JRC4558 opamp, giving it a somewhat clean-boost feature or an aggressive opamp clipping sound on higher Overdrive settings. Identical to the FD2.
Completely independent, discrete JFET Clean Boost channel that can be used by itself! This channel has its own Volume control and a unique mini-knob controlling Germanium Diode "Limiter" function that has to be felt to be really appreciated! Clockwise on this knob takes out the strident, irritating spikes that occur with other clean boosts when you hit the strings hard....absolutely gorgeous feature destined to be a classic. This Boost circuit does not invert the signal like most clean-boosts and can be used with or without the overdrive section of the pedal.
