    Just got mine, I'd never heard one or played one before, and I have to say that I'm very impressed. I really enjoyed the comp cut mode with my 335 and some reverb into my Victoria, got very close to the BB King: Live at the Regal sound. I also enjoyed the vintage mode with my Les Paul, laying down some serious ZZ Top grooves. Haven't tried it with the strat yet, but I was mightily impressed with the pedal.

    This is now 3 for 3 with Fulltone pedals for me, I've owned multiple '69 pedals, and multiple Fat Boosts in the past and they've always been great. I'm thinking about buying a Mini-Deja Vibe in the future from Mike. I don't know why so many people rag on the guy, everytime I've emailed him, he's been very polite, and willing to help. He just doesn't spend a lot of time with BS, and that's fine with me. Anyway, just wanted to give a cheer out for this fine Fulltone product.:dude

    Got to agree with you the FD-2 is a great sounding pedal, It sounds fat with my Deluxe Reverb RI. Mike is about to release the FD-2 with Mosfet mod I cant wait to hear what that is like!

    I use mine with my Matchless SC30 (EL84's).
    That is a classic combination. Especially humbuckers.

    Yeah! I Emailed a question to him right before I went to bed one night. When I woke up the next morning, his answer was waiting in my inbox. You just can't beat that!

    Tried it with the Jimmie Vaughan strat today, with a little Reverb from my Holy Grail, and with the pedal on Flat Mids mode, or better yet "Comp Cut", I was in T-Birds territory. I really love what this pedal does to my strat the best, what it does with the 335 is nothing short of amazing, but the strat and the FD-2 is just a phenomenal combination.

    Part of me really wishes I had a Blackface type amp too, that way I could have a Tweed and a BF Reverb combo, truly the best of both worlds IMHO.

    Will the Mosfet Edition have the exact same "classic" circuit & sound available as in the regular FDII ?

    i mean if you dont like Mosfet, will you have like a regular FDII under your feet ?

    Yeah the Mosfet version is the same as the std FD-2 but with the option of turning on or off the Mosfet mode! So now its even more versatile!

    I believe it has some changes as well as the MOSFET option.

    I don't know what changes, and I believe that because the man said so. I think every rev of FD2 has been subtly improved upon.
