The MXR FET Driver features an FET (Field Effect Transistor) gain stage, the holy grail of solid state overdrive tones with rich valve-amp-like touch response and transparency. For best effect use it in conjunction with a valve amp but unlike many other high end over drive pedals the FET can also be used to beef up and give solid state amps a more valve-link response.
Here's what MXR say about the FET Driver
Featuring a unique circuit design, the MXR FET Driver captures the rich, creamy sound of an overdriven tube amplifier by cascading an op-amp gain stage into a FET stage. The FET Driver thickens up lead tones with musical, amp-like distortion and sustain without the fragility and inconsistency associated with tubes.
The FET Driver features a simple but responsive set of controls. Set your volume level with the Output control, and then use the Drive control to dial in the grit, from subtle soft-clipping to early stage distortion. Fine tune the FET Driver’s sound by tweaking Hi and Lo boost/cut controls, and push the Hi Cut switch to roll off high end frequencies when playing in high volume situations where excess noise is apparent.
The FET Driver features true bypass switching and comes in a heavy duty metal housing that’s ready for the road.
