Fulltone Full Drive 3 Overdrive with Boost Guitar Effects Pedal

 

The Tone.

Nothing quite compares to the sound of a good valve amp being pushed hard. It’s tonal Nirvana and what most drive pedals and digital amps are trying to simulate. Guitarists looking to achieve singing, full distortion with tonnes of body, soul, and humanity are looking for that sound. Harnessing that sound, however, typically comes with some caveats. Firstly, an amp doesn’t get to that heavenly point of tone without an ear bleeding amount of volume. Secondly, valve amps are very expensive and heavy.

Valveless Valves

In swoops Fulltone and their Full Drive 3. This is the latest version of their Full Drive series of pedals which is an attempt to recreate the full and responsive tone of pushed valves, in a pedal form, without actual valves. It is scarily uncanny.

The Full Drive 3 simulates its valve tone by using what are called JFET’s. JFET’s are a type of semiconductor which is unbelievably responsive and amp-like, much more so than pretty much anything else out there. They create the same, slightly unpolished, reactive response you’d expect from a valve amp. They swell and squeeze and punch just like you’d expect a well pushed valve would.

The scariest facet to the design of the Full Drive 3 though is how convincingly it reacts to what it is seeing. It feels alive. The volume control on your guitar will tame the pedal from a screaming beast into a sparkling, sensitive clean tone in a frighteningly realistic manor. It is fluid and dynamic to a degree that could easily convince you to tear it apart with your bare hands in a frenzied, desperate search for the hidden valve amplifier that must be buried within. Alas, all you would find would be Michael Fuller’s genius and a few JFET semiconductors.

Controls

As mentioned above, the Full Drive is incredibly responsive and dynamic. This ethos is reflected in every facet of the pedal and its controls all work together to provide the broadest yet most authentic canvas possible. The volume control is for the master output level of the pedal and the tone control dictates the tonal flavour of the pedal to help it fit seamlessly into your rig.

The overdrive control sets the amount of gain that the pedal is producing. The amount of gain will dictate how pushed the pedal sounds and feels but, as mentioned, the pedal can be controlled so intricately from the guitars volume control or even the amount of pressure from your right hand that the amount of gain the position of the overdrive control is producing isn’t necessarily as cut and dry as it is on other overdrive pedals. You’re setting more of an abstract reference point for the gain, how much power there is to be harnessed should you want to.

 

The Three Styles of Clipping 

Slap bang in the middle of the Full Drive 3’s control knobs is a three-way selector switch which controls the type of clipping the pedal is producing. They are as follows.

  • Up - 90’s: Symmetrical clipping with a full midrange.
  • Middle - Comp-Cut: Pure opamp overdrive with no diode clipping assistance. In layman’s terms, it’s loud, aggressive and articulate. This is the mode best used if you want to slam the front-end of your amplifier.
  • Down - Wide Asymmetrical: The sweetest of the modes. The highs and lows are more soulful and there are a slew of lovely harmonic overtones which add a nice, even, Class-A style chime.

Each of the three styles share an overall character but are audibly distinct enough to be worthwhile exploring. They all offer slightly different emotions. They promote and reward distinct playing styles. They’re lovely additions which make this already bewilderingly responsive pedal that much more versatile.

 

Boost

One of the new features on the Full Drive 3 is its dedicated and independent boost section on the right hand side. This is another overdrive altogether which has also been beautifully crafted and works by itself or in conjunction with the main meat and potatoes on the left. It is a high-headroom, extraordinarily transparent, JFET powered circuit which adds a whole other dimension to the Full Drive 3. You have a dedicated switch on the right to turn it on or off whenever you like irrespective of whether the main section on the left is on or off. Also, you have a two way selector switch that allows you to control how they work when they’re both on together. You can either have the overdrive feed into the boost or the boost into the OD, it’s up to you and what you prefer the sound of.

Extras

The last two things to mention are the buffer and the dynamics control. Firstly, the buffer. The Full Drive 3 now uses a buffered bypass. This is in response to the growing number of players who are running bigger and bigger pedalboards. The need is increasing for buffered pedals to keep the signal alive and full. Fulltone’s buffer is one of the best out there. It has been carefully considered and designed to preserve your tone with the utmost clarity. The buffer has also been designed to limit the Full Drive’s influence on other pedals around it whilst keeping the Full Drive itself isolated from other pedals in one’s chain that may be out to affect its tone.

Lastly, the dynamics control is another new addition. This little knob controls a exclusive Germanium diode limiter circuit designed by Fulltone to control the feel of the notes through the pedal and also protect against massive transient spikes that could damage your amp. You can use it to sweep the feel of your playing to create a much fuller, juicier tone with sweeter highs through any amplifier.

All-In-One

The Full Drive 3 from Fulltone is a really fully-fledged overdrive pedal. Its scary amount of dynamism coupled with its flexible controls and killer tone make it a serious contender for a spot on any board. You can treat it like a valve amplifier in a box which bends and flexes to suit any guitar or playing style. The addition of the independent boost section means that it really is two high-class drives rolled into one. The cherry on top of everything is that the Full Drive 3 is also 20% smaller than its predecessors. This means that not only will it sound great on any board it also stands a good chance of fitting onto any board too!
