The Fulltone Secret Frequency (“Secret Freq.”) isn't just another touch-sensitive, dynamic, natural sounding overdrive/distortion—it does way more than your average transparent OD/Distortion.
- Dynamic asymmetrical clipping gives the Secret Freq. a sweet, musical, clean boost, juicy overdrive, and rich, touch-responsive high gain sounds.
- Turn the Freq. control clockwise to add as much as 20db of active narrow band juicy midrange right where it does the most good.
- It‘s like installing a wah-wah right where the distortion is being generated. But unlike turning on your wah-wah along with a distortion pedal, bass and treble frequencies don't disappear with the Secret Freq.
- 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.
Why We Like Fulltone
Fulltone pedals probably show up on more studio players’ rigs than any other brand. They’re made by hand, using what Michael Fuller feels are the best-sounding components available. He’s a studio musician and tone junkie who won’t sell anything he won’t play. Consequently, his pro-level pedals are all first-rate.
NOTE: Because tone is so subjective, we limit our printed descriptions of pedals. Descriptions here are largely edited from manufacturers’ sites. Your ears and your budget are the best guide. We recommend everything we carry and encourage you to come take ‘em for a spin.
