Class Ger t but no substitute for the predecessor FD2

KaiS, 17.07.2014
Mike Fuller's great idea to place the Boost switchable in front of or behind the Overdrive. So you have two devices in one. The FD3 is by no means a substitute for the FD2, because it sounds quite different despite the similar concept.

The distortion is overall in both modes somewhat harder and somehow more fuzziger. The 90smode is from my point of view clearly different from the FD2 in the 90s has sounded. The boost is great. What I am very sorry about is that the boost before the Od at the FD3 produces a significant volume boost and little extra distortion. This means that you do not have such a nice solo sound as with the FD2. Volume and Drive are mutually interdependent. So when you increase overdrive you have to reduce the volume control.

With the Dynamics knob you can slow down the Volume Boost, but it also loses a lot of dynamics. Works a bit like a compressor.

Compared to the FD2 annoy me a little the present basses. This way, the clear in the middle is lost that makes the FD2 so beautifully soft but present in the mix. It somehow looks a bit thicker, darker and harder.

Conclusion: A nice device for low to medium Overdrive and a great boost. Everything in the best quality. The creamy smoothe of the FD2 one does not get here however. I keep my Fulldrive 2 in any case.

Very good

Mister_SdV, 29.11.2014
As always at Fulltone, the case is sturdy, heavy and well finished. A hair darker than the Ibanez TS808DX it remains a sacred competitor. I compared the two. Very difficult to decide. The Fulltone came out "second" only because it is a bit darker than the Ibanez and less pretty.
