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.
