Michael Fuller started Fulltone around 1991 while working as a Session Guitarist, a Composer, Performer, and Electronic Tinkerer. People started calling him asking for his effects pedals after he was featured in Guitar Player Magazine as one of the winners of their "Ultimate Guitarist Competition" competition. Fulltone effects use True Bypass switching or their exclusive "Enhanced Bypass TM" (OCD V2, WahFull) with L.E.D. status indicator in all their pedals. Fuller also provided these bypass switches to other pedal makers. All Fulltone pedals were designed, hand-built & tested at their shop in Southern California.

Fulltone closed their California factory in 2022 when Fuller admitted it had become unprofitable. He planned to move to a large ranch near Nashville with a recording studio and make use of his large collection of vintage guitars.
