  • From the Bay Area’s only Fulltone Custom Shop Dealer… check out the 2B. The Fulltone 2B is an amazing boost pedal born from the “Boost” channel in our FD3 pedal. Fulltone crammed the circuit into the smallest possible enclosure 4.5 x 2.1 x 2.3 with battery tucked tightly inside and even engineered space-saving rear-mounted IN OUT and DC power jacks and added an important feature not offered in the FD3. The 2B with its unity-gain JFET amp buffers your signal when the pedal is turned OFF…and when the 2B is turned ON; the only difference is now the GAIN knob comes into play allowing you to set the desired boost up to 20dB! The 2B offers something completely unique in the world of Boost pedals; a DYNAMICS knob. A subtle Germanium diode Limiter circuit that (as you turn the min-knob clockwise) starts to slightly alter the feel of the notes being played as well as subdue the harsh transient spikes which can overload your amp’s input. Those spikes can be fatiguing to your ears to the amp and to its speakers! Similar to using a limiter on the mix down of a song in the studio the 2B’s DYNAMICS feature helps you keep your place in the live mix.....like a very smart compressor. This feature can make even an “ok” amp feel responsive and juicy and will keep you from distorting the amp’s input a problem plaguing most booster pedals. In stock now at Bananas!

    The Fulltone 2B is an amazing boost pedal born from the “Boost” channel in Fulltone's FD3 pedal. Soon after the FD3 came out Fulltone started getting a steady flow of emails asking if they could “please make that into a single channel Boost pedal!” So Fulltone crammed the circuit into the smallest possible enclosure 4.5 x 2.1 x 2.3 with battery tucked tightly inside and even engineered space-saving rear-mounted IN OUT and DC power jacks and added an important feature not offered in the FD3.

    Why does a guitarist need a “Boost” pedal?

    A boost pedal is not only used to kick up your volume when it’s time for your solo! A good booster can also solve a lot of problems in the modern guitarist’s rig because today’s pedalboards average 8 or more pedals with each of those pedals requiring: a guitar cable--->jack--->more wire--->footswitch--->circuit--->footswitch again--->jack--->more wire--> and on to next pedal. It’s a wonder there’s any signal left after all the stuff we put our signal through. Ever played through a 10’ guitar cable straight into a great tube amplifier? The feel the dynamics the fat tone...makes you want to play! Then you connect to your overpopulated pedalboard and suddenly the sound is tiny thin with diminished lows cardboard mids and scratchy thin highs. This is where a good booster comes in handy because all that wire and all those connections reduce your signal by a measurable amount with each passing effect in your signal chain. Add a good booster and you can recoup a lot of that lost gain tone and reactive interplay between you and your lovely tube amp. Suddenly the “touch” is back.
