Founded in 1991 by LA based musician Michael Fuller, Fulltone are on a mission to design & build the highest quality guitar FX pedals on the planet. These pedals are all hand made & hand wired - often using components that Michael makes himself because the "off the shelf" ones just aren't good enough for him. We haven't seen or heard a bad review about a Fulltone Pedal - when you read the user reviews on Harmony Central, every pedal gets a rave response - and if you look at the user list on the Fulltone web site you'll find some of the worlds greatest guitar players have been using Fulltone for years.
Another hot topic with pedals is "True Bypass Switching". All Fulltone pedals feature "True By Pass" switching - that means that when the pedal is switched off there is absolutely zero signal loss or interference from the pedal - it's like the pedal isn't even there! Whilst many manufacturers claim to have true by pass switching, this is not always the case. Try your pedals out & see how different your amp sounds when you remove the pedal from the chain. The better your guitar & amp are, the more you'll hear the difference. And to top it all, Fulltone pedals come with a 5 year warranty.
Getting that classic fuzz sound of the Jimi Hendrix era is a challenge in itself. If you thought Fulltone 'cracked it' with the Fulltone 69, check out the '69 MKII. Exhibiting improvements in several little aspects of the Fuzz Tone, Michael Fuller has refined and reshaped the standard fuzz circuit into something that retains vintage charm and adds modern versatility!
This is how you wished your Fuzzface sounded... Fat and Harmonic. And it cleans up like a vintage Fender amp when you turn down your guitar's volume control. The Rolling Stones and the Black Crowes have discovered this trick.
If you love the first 2 Hendrix releases then you'll love this pedal, with 2 Germanium transistors hand-picked and tested for optimum performance. A Contour Knob lets you dial in Midrange, Harmonics and Sustain, also an "Input " knob that takes out the "woofiness" and gives great Overdrive/Distortion sounds when its level is reduced. An internal "Bias" Trimmer allows for adjustment of Clipping Symmetry, Harmonics, and Tracking.
Specifications subject to change at any given moment due to availability and due to whimsy.
True-Bypass w/LED is standard equipment to preserve tone when the pedal is off!
