Having owned Fulldrive II's 2-3 other times and always getting cardboardy steril tones from them, I decided to try one more time. I'm selling alot of my expensive gear and settling on what works best for me so, I bought the new 10th aniversary Fulldrive II and absolutely love it through the clean channel of my GainStar. Getting tones very close to the Landy, the FDII works wonderfully as a clean boost also. Purhaps my other amps just didn't like the FDII but I now "get it". great pedal.
