I motsetning til Full Drive2 bruker FD3 både JFET input og JFET output amp, som gjør at denne pedalen låter så rør den bare kan uten å inneholde rør. Itillegg til den fantastiske bra lyden har denne pedalen også en høy impedanse på inngangen som gjør at den passer veldig bra sammen med alle typer gitar-pickuper og reagerer dynamisk godt når du skrur volumet opp og ned.
3-way CLIPPING toggle switch:
set to 90’s and you’ll get symmetrical clipping with ample midrange.
Set the switch to WIDE ASYM (wide asymmetrical) and more sweet highs and lows come through, along with chimey, Class-A style even harmonic overtones.
set to COMP-CUT mode, pure opamp-overdrive, with no
diode clipping assistance. Aggressive, cutting, and capable of a huge
volume boost to slam the input of your amp.
Unlike the FD2, the FD3 has completely independent OVERDRIVE and BOOST
channels, and the ORDER toggle switch allows placing the BOOST channel*
before* or after the OVERDRIVE channel. The BOOST channel is also an extremely transparent, high-headroom 100% JFET-powered circuit.
Serial# 2548 and higher FD3 pedals are now Buffered-Bypass
instead of True-Bypass, so the FD3 will always drive long cables, be
isolated from other effects, and always retain the highs and “feel” of
your amplifier whether the pedal is turned ON or OFF. Do not confuse the
hi-quality JFET op-amp buffer in the FD3 with the simple single
transistor buffers on other pedals. The FD3's buffer sounds rich and
fat, not thin.
A Fulltone-exclusive Germanium diode Limiter circuit circuit that alters
the feel of the notes being played as well as subdues transient spikes
which can overload your amp’s input. This feature can make even a stiff
amp feel responsive and juicy, and sweeten the treble frequencies.
The Icing on the cake? The housing is about 20% smaller than the traditional FD2
