This is the best overdrive I make and is the most-used pedal at Fulltone Recording Studio in Nashville.
it’s actually 2 pedals in one! The right side is a 2B transparent clean Booster, the left side a natural sounding overdrive.
Unlike its cousin the FD2, the FD3 uses both a JFET input and a JFET op-amp, giving it the most tube-like sound you can get out of a tubeless pedal. Along with great sound, these JFET’s give the FD3 an ultra-high Input impedance which allows the pedal to mate with any type/gain of pickup and react well to changes in your guitar’s volume control.
With Comp-Cut, Vintage, and Wide Asymmetrical modes, you can drive ANY amp into heavenly gain.
