    JUST DO IT !!

    What a great pedal, Im blown away by the true sounds this guy makes without taking away from my tube amp, that is a Grand Meister 36, I have a tube screamer, soul food, and others that I won't mention (not worth it) But this one is a great pedal I was going after the Fulltone OCD but they were out so I stumbled on this guy and so glad I did,

    A really great pedal

    I've never done a gear review before, but I like this pedal so much that it prompted me to write one. I have no affiliation with Fulltone or any other music vendor/manufacturer. I've been playing for about 25 years and and gig out as a hobby; I'm a decent player but nobody will confuse me with a guitar hero. It is a really versatile pedal (it is not a one-trick pony by any means), but my favorite use is getting that mid-70s mid-range distorted sound -- it works as advertised there. Zeppelin from '69-'75 is really in its wheelhouse, as is more compressed Brian May and Tom Scholz-type sounds. With the gain pulled back and the "Freq" knob rolled back, it works well as an overdrive pedal -- just a different tone.

    I've tried many times to emulate those tones without much success, but you can do it pretty easily with this pedal. I run it with an analog delay into a Marshall JTM 30 2x10 on the clean channel. I've also tried putting a low-gain overdrive pedal in front of it to cascade the gain, which creates a different tone, but that set-up has a bit of noise to it and I think I prefer the pedal as a stand-alone (still experimenting, though). I'll be keeping this one.

    Freq me out!

    Fat, fat,fat tone. This box lives up to the hype, and does what it claims,and then some. The harmonics are what really blow my mind, even at low volumes. If you play a tele or strat and want to fatten your tone, get the secret freq. and you'll love what you hear. It's the pedal that will rekindle your fire for playing. Fulltone steps it up to produce the finest pedals I have ever worked with, do yourself a favor and get some.

    Sercret Freq goodness!!!

    This pedal is a must have for any pedalboard. This guy is a super transparent, juicy, chunky, rich and smooth pedal. it can do it all The best of thing abot it is that it cuts through the mix like none other but still retaining you guitars tone without killing it. Please do yourselves a favor and check this pedal out!!!

    OD on the Freq!

    I demo'd a bunch of Fulltone OD and Fuzz pedals last week through my 65 Princeton Reverb RI and this one jumped out from the pack. It now lives with me, and I'm loving the process of finding new tones on this thing. I use a TS9 in front of it as a clean boost, and love the way they play together. From a nice growl to fuzzed out sustain, the Secret Freq covers the sounds I need.
