    Which do you prefer (specifically referring to the older model which had the push/pull compression setting).

    Offer your preferred setting on the whole.

    I like using the comp. (knob pressed in) with the Tone around 1-2 o'clock, Overdrive barely on, like 7-8 o'clock setting, and not really using the boost.

    I am trying to get a ever so slight overdriven crackle. Alone the above setting seems ideal. When playing in the full band setting, at volume this seems to overdriven so I usually pull the Comp-cut and leave the other knobs set the same (this gives no overdrive but a nice tone).
    So how do you set yours?
  2. I have Fulltone that has a tri-mode switch. I prefer FM mode but sometimes I also use compcut. Settings remain the same though: vol: 10 a`clock, tone 2-3 pm and gain 12 or half past.

    So, just to confirm: The Bass Drive with the little toggle switch is the new/current configuration, and the one with the push/pull rotary switch is the previous one, right?

    I've read conflicting stories on this. The image at the Fulltone site is the push/pull version.
