  • Fulltone Fulldrive at 18v DC!!

    Thought this was all hype till i just treid it. Was using the FD2 at 9 volts. Just happened to have a Dunlop DC 18 volt adapter around that was used with a MXR Dime Distortion. So I figured as long as it is 18 v DC I'd go for it. And also center pin negative which it is. really gives the FD2 more headroom and more clarity. Glad I was messing around. Give it a shot. KJL

      I've had positive results with the OCD and the GT-500 as well. I really think I'm gonna try one of those fulldrives.

      FWIW, I use a gator g bus 8 power supply that has 3 dedicated 18v outputs. It's real convenient as I have a few 9~18v pedals.

              Thanks for adding to my anxiety.

              Was it the block or the adapter?
              How's the brick working?

                do most dirt pedals work at 18v then? do all pedals?

                sounds interesting..

                  I wouldn't try it unless its specified if you dont want to fry a pedal. Fulltone specifies its good to go with certain pedals.

                    so far so good! and im not sure whats wrong with the g-bus cause the 18 volt outs work fine but all the 9 volts dont work at all

                          I have a FD2 and just bought a OCD v4, red led. Can someone do a 9v/18v comparison? Thanks in advance.

                              I run my FD2 at 12V. Makes it just a bit clearer and nicer sounding than on 9v.
