Fulltone Secret Freq - Rich Musical Touch Sensitive Clean Boost Overdrive
Fulltone Secret Freq
WhatÕs this, another touch-sensitive, dynamic, natural sounding overdrive/distortion to confuse the marketplace? Nope, this is the Fulltone ÒSecret Frequency. ÒSecret Freq.Ó for short. Although it does the gig-friendly clean boost and OD thing as good as any, it goes well past that when asked to, right into Rock territory while retaining a natural sound.
Dynamic asymmetrical clipping gives the Secret Freq. a sweet, musical clean boost, juicy overdrive, and rich, touch responsive high gain sounds. Not like the PlimSoul, nothing like the OCD, and not like any other pedal, but worth the price of admission were you to use it simply as is for your Òbread and butterÓ OD/Distortion pedal.
But the ÔFreq has WAY more tricks in its bag than your average transparent OD/Distortion... it just may knock a handful of OD/Distortions right off your Õboard and straight on to Ebay thanks to another innocent looking knob labeled ÒFreq.Ó.
Turn the "Freq" knob clockwise and my proprietary circuit adds as much as 20db of active narrow band juicy MIDRANGE right where it does the most good, itÔs like installing a wah-wah right where the distortion is being generated. But unlike turning on your wah-wah along with a distortion pedal, with the ÔFreq. the bass and treble frequencies don't disappear... Very unique, and not to be confused with a simple active or passive midrange control tacked on to the end of the circuit, as is the case with all other pedals youÕve tried with a ÒMidÓ control. Adding the ÔFreqÕs midrange imparts WAY more sustain and lets you easily place the guitar in the mix where you want it, irrespective of volume... soundman's not going to bury you anymore.
Along with a slew of basic great OD/Distortion pedal sounds, it allows you to replicate a very, very wide range of your favorite guitar & amp sounds. Remember that when the ÔFreq. knob is fully-counter-clockwise the Midrange enhancement effect is OUT of the picture and the pedal is a truly versatile and natural sounding pretty transparent OD/Distortion! At low to mid overdrive settings, turning the ÔFreq knob up a little gets hammer-of-the-Gods penetrating PUNCH!
