Presenting the new Free The Tone FM-1V Fire Mist Overdrive Pedal.

In order to achieve their concept of ideal sound, the team at Free the Tone began by restructuring all of the components in an effects unit based on their expertise and extensive experience cultivated and accumulated over the years and their innate sense of tone, ultimately arriving at their Integrated Series, started as FREE THE TONE’s 15th anniversary project. The first release in this series is a pair of overdrive pedals, the String Slinger and Fire Mist.

They sought extended dynamic range, brilliant overtones, long sustain, quick but fat tone, and of course, the most important thing, pure and clean overdrive sound. In order to realize all of these things, they thoroughly investigated various electronic circuits and parts and all of the factors related to sound such as materials and weight of the case and knobs, magnetic fields, etc. After a few years and many prototypes, they finally completed the String Slinger and Fire Mist.

In the quest for ideal overdrive sounds, most usually recall the American Blues sound symbolized by the classic Blackface period and the British Rock sound as represented by the golden “Plexi” panel. The Fire Mist renders edgy, traditional British Rock sound with outstanding response. The instant you play through the Fire Mist, you will understand the true meaning of “Amp-like.”

The Fire Mist Features:

  • New HTS (Holistic Tonal Solution) Circuit: The Integrated Series device implements our renewed HTS (Holistic Tonal Solution) circuit. Unlike conventional buffer circuits, this newly designed circuit brings out individual sound characteristics of your guitar and amplifier to the utmost while providing impedance conversion and establishing both the ideal sound and low noise.
  • FREE THE TONE Custom Knobs: We developed a custom turned brass knob to reduce vibrations in the shaft and wiper of the semi-fixed resistor used for each control and to suppress harmonic components that adversely affect sound. Its diameter and weight were chosen after many repeated listening tests to obtain our ideal sound, “distorted but clean” overdrive.
  • Sound Casing Design: All of the parameters of a case – width, depth, and height, and plate thickness of the case – affect overdrive sound. When deciding the case size for our Integrated Series, we calculated all of the dimensions to provide the ideal sound. Its weight has also been optimized to deliver the best sound.
  • FREE THE TONE’s Unique IC Tone Plate: This metal plate for damping and shielding covers the top of an IC chip to make the most of the characteristics of the IC and to prevent noise contamination to the utmost.
  • Passive Tone Circuit: We adopted a passive tone circuit that minimizes the phase shift in guitar signals.

5 of 5 Incredible Pedal August 27, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Simsbury, CT United States  
This pedal really does the Marshall type thing better than most, if not all, that I've tried.  Amazing feel, top end and mids.  The tone knob has a very useable sweep that can tame the top without getting too dark. Such a great pedal!
