FR 100 is a dual-mode, stacked overdrive. It has a medium gain drive mode and a stacked, high-gain lead mode. Simple layout and controls make FR 100 easy to dial in for the best overdrive and lead tones ever created. LEAD mode is activated by a silent, momentary foot switch on the top of the pedal. The switch is positioned so that knobs don't get hit when LEAD is activated. FR 100 plays well with Fuzz Faces, wah pedals and most other effects.
FR 100 Drive mode bridges the gap between clean (bypass) and high-gain. A chunky rock 'n roll tone that will make any decent amp shine. LEAD mode is a creamy, high gain tone with a slightly over-cooked, saturated bite to it. The pick attack and sustain makes it highly addicting!
Volume: Controls the overall volume of the pedal. Typical setting around 1:00
Drive: Controls the amount of gain in the main drive section. Typical setting around 2:00
Lead: Controls the amount of gain added when the pedal is in Lead mode. Typical setting around 2:00.
Tone: Turn down for bass, up for treble.
Voice switch: Three selections for matching FR 100 to various amps and playing situations.
High: Tightens the low end and adds resonance in the mids. Good for helping a guitar cut through the mix on a crowded stage. Useful with amps that have a lot of low end.
Mid: This is the natural tone of the overdrive without additional tone shaping.
Low: Fattens the low end for a warm tone. Useful with small amps and to avoid harshness with bright amps.
Operating Modes / Lead Foot switch
DRIVE mode: When the pedal is powered up it comes on in Drive mode. The signal is passed through a clear-voiced soft clipping section. This circuit is similar to the VT and CS cards used in the Foxrox ZIM pedal.
LEAD mode: Pressing the LEAD foot switch turns the Red LED on and inserts an additional overdrive stage before the main Drive section. This overdrive adds more gain, sustain and midrange. The two drive stages work together to create a clear, fluid lead tone. Press again to deactivate LEAD mode.
- The LEAD overdrive section is identical to the H9 Overdrive card used in the Foxrox ZIM pedal.
- Both Drive and Lead modes are responsive to your guitar's volume knob and the dynamics in your playing.
- LEAD mode gives you both a gain boost and volume increase. The volume increase can be adjusted internally.
- Tone knob and Voice switch let you match FR 100 to different amplifiers and playing situations.
