    Saw this one, looks interesting, especially for those who have no use for the Boost function of a normal FD2. Like the FD2, it has Vintage and Flat Mids modes, plus, the Comp Cut mode is supposedly with fuller mids, like the earliest FD2 pedals. Plus, the smaller size frees up room on your pedalboard.

    This is pretty cool! I never liked the oversize shape of the FD2.

    No need to find and pay $400-$600 for a 90's FD2 anymore ???? You can see most of them on Ebay for $50-$100 bucks. I may even sell you MY early FD2 for the price (TBD) of this FD1.

    Will be interesting to see the pricing on this. I have a feeling it will be more than the current new FD2 price of about $130.00, for less features and materials.

    I'm not sure about this. I like the Full drives because of the variety offered by the two foot-switch design. The FD3 is my favorite, but I love the older FD2 as well. Regardless of how great this one sounds, I would feel like it was missing something, but the company would probably say that the player could buy the little Fulltone boost pedal and set it right next to this one to have the same functionality as the larger pedals.

    I've liked every version of the Fulldrive i've tried, but i don't use the boost. This new version will be very tempting.

    I saw that these are finally available. Anyone tried one? Big selling point seems to be the "full mids" comp cut mode, like the old ones.

    The FD3 is not a lot bigger and has the option to use the boost separately, I'd be more inclined to go that route if I wanted a modded TS type pedal. There are a LOT of small TS type overdrives that have multiple options.

    I use the boost more than the drive side of the FD3, it's the only boost pedal I need.

    MF now has the FD1 in stock. I saw them listed on Ebay for $119.20.
