Fulltone Full-Drive2 Mosfet
Housed in a beautiful powder coated Blue 16ga. steel enclosure, the dual-channel Full-Drive 2 Mosfet gives you the best of both worlds. The first channel is the Overdrive Mode, capable of clean boost or non-compressed overdrive or choose light to medium softer overdrives all while retaining your guitar's original tone. The Tone knob is a very effective presence control that can smooth out or add upper harmonics. The second channel is the "Boost Mode" with its own separate distortion control for medium to higher gains with a more singing violin-like sustain!
One mini-toggle lets you choose between a "Vintage" FD2 sound with mid-heavy tones that cut through the mix and "FM (flat-mids)" for a more natural, transparent sound that works awesome with a Strat's neck pickup.
The other mini-toggle lets you choose between Mosfet and Normal clipping modes. Normal mode is even more asymmetrical, sweeter and more open, with no "blanket" over the sound.
And, of course, the FD2-Mosfet features super-bright LEDs and Fulltone's exclusive "no-thump/no-pop" True Bypass switches. We are the first to offer a switchable "Boost" Channel in an overdrive and the first only to manufacture our own Super-Duty 3PDT footswitch allowing True-Bypass plus LED.

I've had my Full Drive 2 Mosfet for about 8 years now. It's been a constant tone in my arsenal for about that long as well. Not only is it durable, but it offers quite a bit for diversity of tones with the switches that are on board - making it the perfect overdrive pedal for a number of different settings/genres.
Full disclosure - I'm looking to sell mine. But not because of dissatisfaction, just ready for some new gear and need the $$ to finance that endeavor. It's been a terrific 8 years with this on my board. Would still recommend it to anyone looking for an overdrive that gives you some great options all in one pedal.
From clean, passing by boost up to overdrive.
Nice and humble pedal, with a lot of features. The sound feels not at all transparent, as it has added a little compression and probably the original signal is added in parallel with the effect to produce this pedal sound, which is really good. If you listen to Kings of Leon, you definitely want this pedal to achieve their sounds.
Using the Blues Driver and the TS Mini in parallel with the Boss LS-2, I can get many sounds from the Fulltone Fulldrive 2 Mosfet.
I bought this one after I tested a friend's FD2 with the Vox AC15C1 and finally getting all those sounds from the 'Because of the Times' album from Kings of Leon in 2007.
Probably I'll get rid of my other drives, but not by the moment. I've used the Blues Driver as clean boost before the Fulldrive 2 obtaining good sounds.
The EP Booster pushes well the Fulldrive 2 pedal, as this has headroom just when is pushed with the internal boost in the pedal.
