Easily swapable cards.
You would be forgiven for thinking electronic cards are fragile accessories.
Quite the opposite in fact: they are really solid, and we built them with robust connections to withstand even the most brutal card changes.
The card change is a very straightforward operation. Once the enclosure has been opened, you don’t need any tools, you just have to pull on the card to remove it. Then you can just connect another card.
For those who are used to plugging everything the wrong way around, we’ve thought about you! We’ve built the cards with keyed connection so they will always be aligned the right way.
the full story collector’s edition
That exclusive limited-edition boxset (250 pieces only) gathers the seven Tone Cards and allows you to choose two different versions in the same pedal. You may set one up for rhythm, the other for solos, or even stack the two in series, and we’ve even added a treble booster.
Like the two spots for fuzz cards, the booster also has an independent footswitch. Therefore, you may also use it without the distortions.
This gets you seven possible combinations with only three footswitches, and we’re not even counting the possibilities when you start changing the cards around.
One thing for sure is that the Full Story will not be made again in that shape and form, at that price with the seven Tone Cards once the 250 pieces have been sold. Don’t hesitate too long!
Unique and collectable packaging.
With that limited edition featuring the seven Tone Cards, we’ve chosen to offer a unique packaging custom-made for the version. That understated and elegant box allows you to keep your seven cards handy.
That packaging will only be available with that limited edition.
Two channels, more possibilities.
We know you will want to switch versions without having to open the pedal, which is why the limited edition has two spots to insert your Tone Cards. This allows you to get two fully independent channels, each with its own settings and footswitch.
The footswitch in the middle activates the card in the Main Fuzz spot, with the three silver knobs and the Anasounds logo, while the left footswitch activates the Secondary Fuzz card, controlled by three smaller back-lit knobs. You may also stack them in series for even more sounds and possibilities!
Vintage treble booster.
The Full Story already has a monster sound when used on its own. But it also stacks really well with boost pedals, which is why we’ve built a germanium boost inside this limited edition. We’ve been inspired by a timeless classic treble booster for our circuit.
It can be switched on independently with the right footswitch. We’ve also added a four-position knob that gives you access to four voicings, from full range boost to classic treble booster that cuts the low-end.
Guitar pickup impedance simulator.
Vintage germanium pedals like boost or fuzz have a tendency not to sound their best when they’re not directly connected to your guitar. For them to work properly, they must match the impedance of the pickups, otherwise you might get problems with piercing highs and ground noise.
To avoid that issue, we’ve built a pickup-simulator inside the pedal, which guarantees you a proper sound wherever you choose to put your Full Story in your signal chain.
Modular boost section.
We’ve taken the Tone Cards concept to its maximum. The treble booster circuit is also on a small removable card, which means we’re gonna be able to develop other boost circuits to replace it.
Many circuits work perfectly when stacked with the big fuzz, so in the future we may develop other boost circuits that can be used with this limited edition…
Fuzz for bass players.
That big fuzz / distortion is often used on bass, and we have not forgotten that for our version. The seven cards have been developed to offer the best possible response in the low-end without changing the original sound and playing feel on the guitar.
The Full Story works just as well with a bass or a guitar.
