    I never bonded with the Fulldrive 2 on my previous rigs and it was put away for a while. in a downsizing effort, I purchased a Quilter SuperBlock US. I was trying different pedals with the new rig and decided to give the Fulldrive another go……. Absolutely magic with the Quilter. My old Bad Monkey is not too bad either.

    …..you just never know. The Fulldrive will stay along with a Archer Icon.

    The FD2 is a classic. Ive owned mine for 22 years. It's still not for sale.

    I am in a similar situation. Have had the FD2 in the past and missed it after selling it. Got another one a couple of years ago and it has not left my board. It sits right between a Rat and a Euphoria and gets used the most. It does the tube screamer thing great, but can also get a lot of other usable sounds.

    I never liked the EQ on previous rigs, but with my present rig it is perfect. I set it up for pretty low gain and use the boost for mo’ hair…….. can’t ask for any more.

    I really like my FD2 and Nux Horseman with my Q201, as well.

    In which order do you run these and if you don't mind, what settings do you use?

    Interesting. I'm finding the Bad Monkey works pretty well with my Quilter Tone Block, too. It's still a bit dirtier than I want but it's a nice growl.
