Did a search and I don't think anyone's done a review as such for it yet, so here goes! I was lucky enough to get this for christmas, my folks had gone to New York (with money & shopping list for some new strings/leads etc.) for a seasonal holiday when the exchange rate was about 2:1. Imagine my surprise when I opened up a "DO NOT DISTRIBUTE OUTSIDE OF USA" pedal. I'm quite surprised they don't sell it over the pond but hey, it's nice to be a fortunate minority First impressions: This thing is hellish substancial, the knobs are well set and potentially large enough to be altered by foot on the fly. The foot switches are well placed at the bottom of the face and the finer switches (put betweet the knobs at the top) are best set before a gig and left. I set everthing flat and plugged in (Warwick corvette $$ and a trace elliot combo) and was astounded at the bass response once you start putting up the gain. The most infuriating thing I have found when using distortion pedals at gigs is that all the rich bass tone you've painstakingly cultivated suddenly disappears in a world of fuzz and treble...leaving the drummer wondering where his rhythm buddy has gone and the guitarist wondering why he's suddenly got a lower-octave double. Definitely not the case for this pedal, and from various reviews of the original, I'm guessing Fulltone should be given a hug for a job well done. There are actually two channels of distortion (notice the two footswitches). The first channel is a straight overdrive, with the left hand (compcut/vintage) 3-way switch allowing you to switch between a none-compressed “CompCut”, a light/medium overdrive or a full vintage tone for a more clipped low-mid/bass sound. The right hand (standard/mosfet) 2-way switch gives you a choice between germanium and silicon diodes (soft or hard clipping distortion respectively) which is oddly dubbed “mosfet” or “standard”. The tone knob gives a sound ranging from low-down growl to piercing high end for those harmonic squeals, whilst the overdrive knob gives a full range of gain from a slight grit to all out distortion. Then there’s the boost function, this is interesting in that as soon as you hit the right hand foot switch you have increased sustain, overdrive and potentially unwanted feedback. This is adjustable via the “boost” dial, and a wee bit of toying with both this and the tone control swiftly eradicated the feedback. The boost function struck me as being quite a nice feature for being able to go between two completely different sounds without having to mess about with settings mid-gig. Personally I opted for having the pedal set at vintage/mosfet as CompCut sound seems to let loose a hoarde of horrible feedback (this may be due to the high-output on my bass, but crikey it was an earful) and the standard added an over-harsh higher end to my sound. There is some serious fun to be had sticking all the gain on full and pulling endless harmonics, but even with a mere touch of distortion this adds a lovely texture to my tone (think Audioslave: Tim Commerford) definitely a keeper, and sounds incredible with a decent wah pedal! I found this to be quite a handful of options from a single overdrive pedal, so tinker to your hearts’ content and there’s bound to be something for you here.
