    Question is pretty much self-explanatory - what are some other other pedals that are sonically in the same neighborhood as the Fulldrive2 Mosfet neighborhood? I can do without the Boost function BTW.

    Thanks.

    Yeah. We could say "kind of like a tubescreamer" to a lot of things. :)

    Tim pedal does this, especially the flat mid voicing...the only thing is it does it far better then the Fulldrive. Only downside is it does not do the other voicings.

    The Fulldrive Mosfet sounds like the Eternity at certain settings ( mainly flat mid mode , mosfet on and running at 18 volts ).......

    But the FD cuts bass more than the Eternity. So the FD to me is closer to a tube screamer than the eternity which cuts bass less.

    I had them both on my board for a while, but the eternity won out and sounds better IMHO and the FD is on the shelf for now, and the eternity is on my board ( Although I'll hang on to the Fulldrive because it's a great pedal and will come in handy for some small pickup gigs into a backline amp for instance, when I just us a couple of pedals )

    Banzai Fireball II knocked the Fulldrive off my board. This is the pedal that Robben Ford used before the Zendrive. It has internal trimmers that can shape the sound. Like the FD it can do the TS thing. It does have more gain than a FD or TS if you need it. Can be very smooth like the FD. The boost is similiar to the FD but is way more useable- adds gain without the mush. Doesn't get a lot of press around here but worth a listen.
