The Fulltone Fat Boost 3 is a high quality booster pedal designed for use with electric guitar. While you can probably use it with other electronic instruments, I'd recommend using it only guitar since this is what it is designed for. The pedal has 1/4" connections for input and output and requires power from a nine volt power supply. The Fat Boost 3 has a class-A FET design and true bypass as well. It isn't rack mountable in any way as it is stomp box.


Using the Fulltone Fat Boost 3 is incredibly simple, as there are only a few parameters to work with here. Really when it comes to boost pedals, you don't need much, so it isn't like they are skimping here either. The pedal simply has large knobs for volume and drive, as well as two smaller knobs to control your bass and treble levels. A manual isn't necessary at all with the Fat Boost 3.


I've used the Fulltone Fat Boost 3 for recording and live shows in tandem with a Fender Jazzmaster and a 1976 Fender Twin Reverb, so I definitely got an accurate read on what the pedal truly sounds like, and I'm loving what I hear from it. The pedal isn't as subtle as most booster pedals out there, which is a good thing for me as I like the drive I get out of this bad boy. I definitely wouldn't recommend it in place of an overdrive pedal or anything like that, but it can definitely give you sounds ranging from subtle boosting to full on drive.


While more expensive than your average boosting pedal, if you're going to be using a pedal like this consistently, I'd recommend ponying up for the Fulltone Fat Boost 3, as it is up there with the best boosting pedals that I've used. The clean design and sound are definitely a steal, even at this price. Do not overlook the Fulltone Fat Boost 3 if you're looking to pick up a boosting pedal for your guitar.
