Dual-stage Overdrive with Amazing Sensitivity

Fulltone designed the PlimSoul overdrive pedal so that you can achieve the huge sound of a stack with your combo amplifier, and Sweetwater guitarists can confirm that it indeed sounds huge. Two overdrive sections, one with smoother soft clipping and the other with brighter hard clipping, give you an incredible sonic range to explore. Blend the two overdrive stages so that softer passages sound smooth and liquid, while playing harder adds an amazing bite and presence. You'll be amazed at how responsive it feels, and you'll love the generous volume control that lets you push your amp into the red zone. If you want maximum sensitivity and versatility from your overdrive/distortion pedal, you'll be well-served by the Fulltone PlimSoul.

Fulltone PlimSoul Overdrive/Distortion Pedal Features at a Glance:
  • Soft-clipping and hard-clipping overdrives in one pedal
  • LED glows brighter or dimmer depending on how hard you push it
  • Easy to optimize for single-coils or humbuckers with the Hi-Cut control
  • Lots of gain above unity so you can push your amp until it's raging
  • Both channels can be used independently or blended for ultimate flexibility

Sweet, sweet sustain!

The Plimsoul...What can I say? I absolutely love this pedal. But it has to be used correctly. I have a Les that sounds great straight into my heavily modified Hot Rod DeVille. But the addition of the Plimsoul with the drive on the amp set for slight breakup and I have found an amazingly huge sweet spot. Plus, with a master volume amp, I can dial levels down and still have the tone and sustain I want. It makes me want to play, and that's what it's all about. So if your rig sounds good, but not great, give this a shot. It's TASTY.

Creamy, warm, fat, gooey, responsive, and dynamic. This thing blows every OD pedal out of the water. Adds a special kind of mojo to your signal. Makes notes glue together beautifully. I love how well it responds to volume and tone controls on the guitar. This thing is perfect. 5/5, Fulltone nailed it.

The Cat's Meow

I heard this unit on a video and immediately decided I "needed" it. I played a gig with it a few days later and it made a tremendous difference. It it almost like inspiration in a box with long smoky sustain that can really make your guitar talk. My advice is to get his unit and sell or throw away any modeling nonsense you may own. My only slight criticism is that the stage 2 knob is small and it is kind of hard to see but basically I set it and forget about it so it is not a problem. True bypass makes this a professional quality unit that you will want to keep forever. I don't know why they gave it such a weird name because is really the CAT'S MEOW.

New go-to pedal

I was looking for a great OD pedal with true bypass and lots of flexibility. This thing is even better than I had hoped. Most pedals I take a week to find a sound I love. With this one, I can't find a bad sounding setting. Even with both stages cranked the distortion is high quality and totally usable. Harmonic content is complex and rich, while allowing your guitar to still sound like your guitar. I highly recommend this pedal!

PlimSoul music

Best overdrive and distortion pedal I have ever used. It sounds amazing through a Vox AC15 and a Fender Deluxe Reverb. Sounds great with PRS and Gibson guitars with humbuckers, which is what the pedal is designed for, but still is excellent with strats and teles. No more need for boost pedals. This gives your lead tones anything from mild tp heavy distortion, so you can find your own sweet spots. The separate channels for type of clipping give you more flexibility. This pedal can generate some really great screaming notes for blues and rock.

Sweetwater Advice

Greg Baum

Mike Fuller has done it again: A handwired pedal that features Stage 1 and Stage 2 Overdrive with Sustain. With a turn of the pedal knob, your guitar's volume knob, or a flick of your pick hand, it can go from Santana to Michael Bloomfield to Cream to SoloClapton to While My Guitar Gently Weeps. When that Stage 2 light glows, you get really musical sounding compression of your overdrive. This pedal added to your rig is like turning an ant farm into a condominium!
