I've owned this pedal for a couple years now, fantastic sound.\nIt sounds best with the scoop and gate activated. Playing my 8 string tuned down a full step through this pedal sounds awesome. If you want a real gnarly metal tone.....this is it\nBest played through a half stack or extension cab, my Fender M80 isn't very loud, I NEED a 2x12 or even 4×12 cab. But overall a really good pedal

I first got the Dark Matter pedal, didn't like it, traded it in for this pedal. Very happy.
If you want to go from clean, acoustic sound to beafy, crunchy metal sound..... get this. Adjust the eq's, find the high a bit too HIGH so I keep it dialed back a bit, I have the low turned up all the way and the mid at mid. Just the sound I was looking for! ??

I'm fairly a novice with effects and pedals, so I might be doing lots of things wrong when it comes to dialing in the effects, but this pedal makes the sound very artificial-sounding. Almost like if you were playing a synth rather than a guitar, with most of nuances of picking completely lost.

This is by far the best high gain distortion I've ever used and I've used alot. I've seen some bad reviews on other sites and I don't understand why there is any? I mean if your not looking for a metal pedal don't by a pedal with the name fullbore metal. The eq on this pedal is amazing and for a high gain pedal all your notes come out crystal clear. Sounds amazing for lead guitar also. This pedal turns my 30 watt Marshall amp into a beast! If your looking for a heavy metal pedal this is the best!

This pedal was a great buy for the price. Pretty light, but solid construction. Really helped me get some nice meaty metal tones with a bedroom practice amp. Had it for over a year now and it's really easy to get similar tones to many different artists with this.

This is one great distortion pedal. Just picked one up and played it through my Fender Ultra Chorus and I was blown away by the sound. Great bottom end for heavy riffs and great tones for solo`s. Then by mistake I activated the overdrive on my Ibanez Jemini Distortion-Overdrive pedal and I have the greatest sound that I ever heard. Added great colour to the tone. Warm, clean, clear and crisp. Just awesome!!!!!! I think one of the best distortion pedals out there. The noise gate is a great added touch to the pedal.

I've used many, and by far the tone shaping and control this pedal offers it's awesome.
For $139 you get...
3 Band EQ, mids frequency adjustment, a built in adjustable noise gate and this wonderful "scooping" option. So you can go from a Ozzy ozzbourn kinda sound to Metallica Black album at the click of a button.

this pedal is amazing, you can dial in any kind of distortion you want, and it even has a built in gate that works awesome. this pedals dials have a huuuge amount of range and it is build like a tank. my only complaint would be that the battery access is under a plate that you need a Philips screwdriver to get at ( also where the adjustment for the gate is, though it is factory set pretty perfect imo and can be turned on off easy with a top mounted button ) and the A/c jack is on the side, which could potentially chew up some room on a pedalboard. Buy this pedal... its strengths are many and its weaknesses few.

Extremely versatile pedal with tons of options. Took me about an hour to dial in exactly what I wanted -- a nice beefy Dual Rectifier type sound at reasonable volume. The scoop button and frequency dial are awesome features that really expand the range of tones you can achieve. I also have the Metal Muff, which is great, but the Fullbore is better.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
