Finally, the sound of the late 90s to early 2000s Fulldrive without the boost channel is back! Simple as it comes... with Volume, Tone, Drive, and toggle bringing back the Flat-Mids (FM), Vintage, and the infamous (for assaulting the front end of tube amps) Comp-Cut (CC) modes. Simple True-Bypass switching, 9-18 volt operation. No need to find and pay $400-$600 for a 90's FD2 anymore.
Soundwise? You get the exact (full midrange) Comp-Cut that was in the earliest FD2s, not the Flatter mids CC in later models. So even though the FD-1 will have the Flat-Mids mode, the Comp-Cut is the fuller-mids version identical to the "pre FM / pre-MOSFET" versions of the FD2. This tiny pedal is the size of a Mas-Malo, with top-mounted (also called rear mounted) jacks & power port, and a JRC4558 chip for your go-to overdrive sound.
- ON/OFF Triple-Pole-Double-Throw (3PDT) footswitch: using the best parts available anywhere, including the best switch in the world, the Fulltone-designed & manufactured 3PDT. This pedal has True-Bypass switching so that your sound is not degraded whether the pedal is turned on or off!
- VOLUME Knob: determines the level of the pedal when it’s turned ON only.
- TONE knob: This is an active treble Boost or Cut circuit. You’ll find that the 12 to 1 o’clock position to be pretty neutral, turn it CCW (counterclockwise) to 10 o’clock or so for smoother high gain lead sounds (with Drive knob higher than 12 o’clock) or turn it clockwise for more cut, and a less compressed feel.
- OVERDRIVE knob: Turn this Clockwise (CW) for more distortion, keep below 10 0‘clock (with higher Volume knob settings) for cleaner sounds and for boosting your amp’s input without adding much distortion.
- CLIPPING switch:
CC = Comp-Cut mode:
V = Vintage mode: Normal diode clipping with strong midrange presentation.
FM = Flat-Mids mode: uses a proprietary feedback circuit that returns signal to the clipping section canceling out some of the midrange content, creating a very open, natural sounding overdrive.
- Dimensions: 4.8" x 2.9" x 2.35"
- Input Impedance = @ 370K ohms
- Output Impedance = 10k ohms
- Current draw= approximately 8 mA
- POWER: You may run this pedal on the 9-volt battery (included) or on any voltage between 9 and 18 Volts DC as long as the adapter is (standard) 2.1mm x 5.5mm barrel plug with “Negative to Center Pin” configuration.
- Unplug guitar cable from INPUT when not using pedal to prolong battery life.
- If you have an adapter plugged into the DC outlet there is no need to unplug the guitar cable from the INPUT because our DC outlet is true-bypass and disconnects the battery supply line, keeping the battery fresh.
- You'll be amazed at the sonic differences using 18VDC, it’s cleaner, louder, with more dynamic. For standard 9 volt operation, the Fulltone IPS-9 is a great 9VDC regulated wall wart adapter (for all countries) For 18VDC, make sure that you buy a regulated adapter like the Fulltone IPS-18. (for use in all countries)
- BATTERY REPLACEMENT: remove the 2 thumbscrews from the sides of the pedal and pull the housing apart. Pull up on the end of the battery and then pull battery away from the cradle.
