Fender Full Moon Distortion

Thanks for purchasing the Full Moon Distortion — a high gain distortion pedal with flexible tone shaping capabilities. Engineered to deliver heavy distortion without losing clarity, the Full Moon is equipped with a four-band EQ to help match this pedal to any guitar/amp combination. The Texture and Bite Switches offer additional tools to tweak your sound. The Full Moon also offers a boost that can increase the overall volume.
Between the EQ section, toggles, and boost, this distortion pedal is capable of adding snarl to chugging rhythms or creating soaring single-note leads.



This control adjusts overall volume level.


A useful control for smoothing out high gain. It softens the upper frequencies and works to blend in the right amount of sizzle.


This controls the pedal’s high-frequency response. Dial it in to keep the top end of your notes clear and defined.


This controls the pedal’s midrange response. A versatile control useful in all distortion settings.


This controls the pedal’s low-frequency response. Use this to fatten up thinner-sounding guitars, or roll it back to clear up guitars with too much bottom end.


This control adjusts the amount of volume added when the Boost is engaged.

Boost LED

This LED shows when the Boost is engaged.


This control adjusts the amount of distortion or saturation.

Texture Switch

This toggles between asymmetrical and symmetrical clipping.

Bite Switch

This switch adds extra gain at upper frequencies, reducing potentially boomy low end and lets your instrument cut through the mix.

Jewel Indicator

Bypass Footswitch
This rugged footswitch bypasses the effect.

Boost Footswitch

This switch provides extra output level set by the Boost control.

Input Jack

This is a high-impedance input suitable for electric guitar, bass, keyboards and other instruments.

Output Jack

This is a low-impedance output jack that connects to the amp or to the next effect pedal in the signal chain.

DC Power Connector

This is a standard center-negative 9VDC jack for use with appropriate power supplies.

LED Kill Switch

This switch extinguishes the LEDs that illuminate the control knobs—useful in maximizing battery life when running the pedal from batteries.

Low Battery Indicator

This red LED on the front of the battery door illuminates when battery voltage drops below a set threshold, indicating that the battery should be replaced soon.
