The Fulltone Obsessive Compulsive Drive is an overdrive pedal that responds to picking dynamics and touch sensitivity – not to mention enhancing beautiful harmonics. The Obsessive Compulsive Drive reacts beautifully to big fat chords and fares well with leads and solos, as well. Roll back the guitar’s volume and you’ve got a new palette of sounds to play with. The best thing about the Obsessive Compulsive Drive is your guitar still sounds like your guitar – just a bit better! You obsess over your tone; now you can have Obsessive Compulsive Drive, too!
Fulltone’s custom-made brass-shaft pots are among the strongest and smoothest feeling pots available. These amazing pots are mounted to the interior PCB board via a proprietary “thru-PCB” method rather than having the pot be secured by the pot terminals, drastically reducing pot-related failure. This method keeps Fulltone pedals up and running for the duration of your playing days. Plus, this eliminates the need for a bunch of jumper wires, keeping your tone as pure as humanly possible.
Who uses Fulltone?
The list of Fulltone fans reads like a who’s who of guitar heroes. Both Ron Wood and Keith Richards have Fulltone gear in their touring rigs, as does Nigel Tufnel from the legendary British metal band Spinal Tap, and Boston bad-boys Joe Perry and Tom Hamilton. Punk/rockabilly mainstay Reverend Horton Heat is a Fulltone convert. Other notable Fulltone users include Pearl Jam’s Stone Gossard, Jack Bruce of Cream, perennial alt rocker Lou Reed, and Tom Petty along with Heartbreaker Mike Campbell.

Why buy Fulltone?
Fulltone was founded in 1991 by session guitarist, composer, performer, and electronic tinkerer Michael Fuller. His pedals were born out of love for music and tone, as well as the frustration at the inconsistencies and the often fragile nature of vintage pedals. Fulltone pedals are 100% handmade in Southern California using the finest components, including custom-made 22-gauge copper wire with no tin coating, Fulltone-designed 3PDT switches, and custom-made brass shaft pots, mounted using Fulltone’s proprietary “thru-PCB” method. The end result: Fulltone pedals are built to last and sound amazing.
