Having some trouble deciding on which unit to get to replace the EHX Soul Food. Both have a version of a mid boost switch which I like. I'm using it for OD tones to boost a slightly sparky AC30 for worship music. Any tips on which one might have the upper hand?

Are you able to try 'em? I've never heard of Chelle, but the FD2 is a very good OD.

just bear in mind some people think a ts-type can be too middy with an ac30. with the mids voicing switch that might not be as much of an issue, though. (I haven't tried either.)

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Are you familiar with the Boss SD1? Not saying its based off it but they sound similar, crispy, crunchy gain, the FD2 is far better though, imo. The mosfet setting on the fd2 is killer! I'd bet you'd dig it.

^Oh right, I'm seeing the Odie is a TS. I didn't know that. Is the Fulldrive based off anything?


yeah i looked into them because of this thread- the odie classic seems to be ts-based for sure (even says on their website). not sure if the odie is as well. the fact it has the mid switch might negate a lot of that midhump... but then again if you know you don't want middy (I don't want to put words into your mouth, maybe you do want middy) there are pedals designed from the ground up not to have the mid hump which might be a better idea.

far as I'm aware the fulldrive is based on a tubescreamer or maybe an sd1 (they're pretty similar, and I forget which... there have been several different versions of the fulldrive too which complicates things).

I like it better than the Fulldrive for Edge OD tone.

if you want a TS clone, CMAT MODS signa drive. its based off a TS but has a 3 way voicing switch to do slightly scooped / flat, pretty much a low gain 95% clean boost, or a full out hot rodded TS all in one. very versatile and pretty awesome. i loved mine, i just felt the need to branch out away from a TS clone so i got an xotic. but for a TS clone, i find it really really hard to ever want anything more. and it was 135 bucks new...

i would say the fulltone is probably more tweakable obviously with all those settings, i found it very vintage sounding. awesome, but personally, i found it a bit much for me. if you want the tweaking of course. i personally wanted teh 3 knobs, small footprint, no hasstle. CIGNA to me was like the best of both worlds get more tweaking in a TS layout.

i think if your into country or classic rock the fulldrive is probably one of the best on the market. i dont think it is voiced for modern rock or metal AT ALL. it sounded very vintage to me when i tested it.

I should have clarified, I do want mids. I actually just remembered Chelle also has out the Ponyboy, a Klone. I'm looking into that one as well. I'll see about the OCD too, I've heard a lot about it and I think I can try that one out.

i hate my OCD. its hard to find a good usage for it in my rigs.

the fulldrive 2 is nice, but i wish you could use the boost function independently of the overdrive. i think they may have done that for the fulldrive 3, but i am not sure. worth looking into though.

i just swear by zendrives now.

Yeah this.
I've got an AC30 and an FD2 with the mosfet and vintage switch.
I've also got 2 TS pedals (TS 808 and TS 9DX) but the FD2 is my preferred OD pedal by a long shot

Full-Drive 3 is neat. I have one, but I prefer using my OCD for gain. The independent boost is a very nice feature.

Its TS based but probably due to all the options, less middy.
Although with the proper settings, you can still get those mids pushing.
Which is why I prefer it to my TS pedals.
I usually use one of my TS pedals to push the other one or use one of them to push my Box Of Rock.

For the record (or maybe due to my "non-golden ears", the FD2 MOSFET with gain cranked NAILS Alex Lifeson's Working Man tone with my AC30.
Actually, I can get pretty damn close to most of his tones up to 2112 (although a lot of that requires the finger gymnastics of an Olympic athlete).
The Alnico Gold and G12K-85 in my 2x12 probably help that too.

^ yeah those ones with more options normally have a setting with fewer mids. not really worth it to me personally because I generally run a ts (or sd1) type alongside a less middy OD anyway, so if I want fewer mids I can just run the other pedal. But I guess having options is handy.
