Fulltone Standard Line 2B | Boost

Miniature Clean Boost w/Germanium Limiter

The Fulltone 2B is an amazing boost pedal, born from the Boost channel in Fulltone's FD3 pedal. Soon after the FD3 came out. Michael Fuller started getting a steady flow of emails asking if he could 'please make that into a single channel Boost pedal!' So he 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...

Description

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 eight 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 it 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.

A problem with some other boosters is once they're OFF, they cease to offer a high quality unity-gain buffer to drive the long cables, so you end up having to buy TWO boosters, one set to 'unity gain' and the other set to do your Volume changes! A better solution is the 2B, 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! This is what differentiates the 2B from the FD3's Boost Channel - the FD3 is true-bypass whereas the 2B has the added benefit of being buffered-bypass.

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 mini-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 okay amp feel responsive and juicy, and will keep you from distorting the amp's input, a problem plaguing some other booster pedals.
