    Edition SETTINGS simple but very effective, I am not too dwelt on the settings, I quickly found a sound that suited me

    SOUND QUALITY

    Simply the best overdrive I got up Submitted. I also have a tube factor that happens to trigger at the same time, I find that OCD has a rponse clearer, more transparent. A large gain range, the modes are vintage caracteriseznt prsence a stronger midrange and gain a little fat, it is necessary to compensate for the volume if you want to stay in the mix. the drive is natural, is perfect for me, I set it to 9:00, the tone around 10:00, the volume of a Manir have some plius that its clean. With these settings the rponse directly LIEA the attack, one can easily have an almost clear if the attack just the strings or decrease the volume of the guitar (a Burny LP 78 with microphone type P90) [ in a Twin ]..... Oh I forgot: no breath .. as the Tube Factor. I play 70's rock (Gallagher, Hendrix ....) So a vintage sound ....

    OVERALL OPINION

    3 weeks, tried it at home in a SansAmp then repeated ..
    A simple quality profesional pedal (you can feel the quality, not breathing, transparency)
    I tried: Sansamp Tri AC, DM4, Tube factor (I couple OCD), TS9, Belcat .... I bought this one without trying it ...
    Purchased in the US, pedal very expensive in France, but you can feel the difference in quality.
    I'll probably continue to try the Fulltone products ....

    complement after a concert: I understand it is called Obsessive spourquoi: the more it goes, the more I always triggers ... it is slowly replacing the TF and I'll return the belcat upstream to push a little. the rponse a 2 LP diffrent (like P90 and like PAF) is very respectful of the signal diffrent originial.

    SOUND QUALITY

    - Effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?

    Then it's really the best distortion that I could be under the foot ... it is also very well named, because it is obsessed with the idea of ​​the trigger ... it is a real dependence. It sounds amazingly bland and transforms the most amps in an infernal machine. Of course, it will shine on a good amp ... on my Soldano, it gives me a sound I could not get the head naturally. This pedal is small and can be transported easily in his guitar case ... we're in a jam with an amp means ... hop on the branch and it's brown sound that points the tip of his nose .

    The texture of the proposed distortion is very marshall-like sound like ... a vieu jtm 45 of the 70's we provide.
    Also this pedal offers the opportunity to play with the knobs ... super responsive, it works ... 1 to 10 of the volume on your guitar, a variety is offered to you without difficulty.
    The Switch HP / LP is great. Lp Od is a super nice, and a boost in front Machiavellian if connected to an already overdriven amp. The way HP is moving closer to a distortion in some 800 dynamic point of view and gain better fitting in my opinion to be connected to a Caal rather clean.
    - Which instruments do you use?

    Les paul standart ... one with a Job and the other a custom 5 in both cases ... it's great ... I love to death as fat!
    - Which ones you prefer, you hate?

    When I received the pedal I started by putting all réglasges to 12. And already like that, it sounded great. Then obviously I began to quibble, and I really have to tell you that everything works ... obviously, if you type in some cut ends of the filter, you get stuff ... but not always musical settings of 99% will give you THE sound!

    OVERALL OPINION

    - How long have you use it?

    2 weeks.
    - What is so special that you like most and least?

    Compact, robust, efficient, true bypass, versatile sound!

    - Have you tried many other models before buying it?

    Ah yes ... I had a sd1, a DS1, a wylde od, a mesa v2, a turbo rat, a 808 maxon pedals ... which I was quite happy but not really sounds ... I fully here, for the first time in my life, I have a sound that suits me thoroughly, I would even say that I no longer feel like the least ... compromise is the ultimate distortion, Really!

    - How would you rate the quality / price?

    Prices in Europe are Exess, and that, that all the material on US
    Fulltone is no exception to this rule but it can be cut by ordering directly over there where they have a decent price (barely more expensive than MXR)

    - With experience, you do again this choice? ...

    Clearly, YES!

    UTILIZATION

    T says it all, the setup is fairly simple.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I use it with a Start and a US Hot Rod Deluxe. I was looking for a dlivrer pedals can overdrive a warm, natural and versatile.
    I use it mainly to play the blues, and I think that in this record, it excels. I apprcie particulirement trslgers for overdrive, which, with a good strat and a good Fender amp, works wonders.
    RULES with the gain to a minimum, it can even act as a boost.
    I prfre in "high peak".
    As it is clean and transparent trs, I can not find it on gniale amplifier transistors (its a bit loud) and I find that when you push the gain back, she left a little fuzz (with my stuff, anyway).
    I would like to use it with a humbucker in order to get more sounds mchants.

    Edit from 01/08/09:

    Recently, I possde an Ibanez RG 2620 which allowed me to redcouvrir OCD. Until recently, I came to him prfrer laCrunch Boxpour saturations enough shoots (when using strat Quema), the OCD too respect the grain of the single coils to get good saturation much feeding.
    With humbuckers (Ibanez those of, anyway), I use the prfre OCD for overdrive and many organic mchants well, that the Crunch Box does not allow (the sound is much more smooth, without much nuance).
    So, to résumé, I recommend the OCD with humbuckers, a hard!

    OVERALL OPINION

    This will make an ending for the year that I possde, but I use it only recently in my amp lights.
    I particulirement likes to sound the blues Stevie Ray (unfortunately, I'm not the same leg).
    In comparison, I tried the drunk driver in Boss (nice, but blah) and Blue Boy MI Audio from home (as if I nly, I would have taken too).
    Good qualitprix in the sense that if it was well chosen, we keep living, but it's not even for a given pedals when you have a limited budget.

    Pedal Overdrive / distortion of the analogue type.

    Second strong point is adjustable very effective!
    Namely:
    1) a usable gain over the life of the potentiometer. Moving from a very light saturation, a big distortion
    2) a tone very efficient (very sensitive)
    3) a good amount of volume in reserve

    Weakness: régagles volume and tone to be adjusted from a saturation mode to another ... a shame because some exploitable live ... why I put 8 / 10.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Basic Setup: Fender Stratocaster 60 'Fender Hot Rod Deville +

    The quality of this pedal is felt right away! the two distortion are really very good. Foot pro!

    The highlight is that this pedal is really usable from a little grain to the saturated fat distortion (rock, eh, not metal!). it's really nice. We go from very soft to very hard without any difficulty.

    The distortion sounds like a DS1 but exploitable, low saturation and with an additional reserve saturation limit.
    The overdrive with a large grain, which as to the fuzz. A lot of personality.

    The saturations are very classic but no shortage of personalities. Sometimes a little cold though.

    Another (very) strong: respect undeniable guitar and exceptional momentum for a pedal of this type! even if we keep a dynamic saturation formidable!

    Weakness: the effect is accompanied by a low-cut filter. This is inconvenient because it becomes difficult to have good bass, and this means strong enough when the effect triggers. It can also be seen as an advantage: It may be interesting in the studio. Live, it helps make the band's sound less draft. So a small switch would have been welcome to enable or disable the low-cut ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long have you use it?
    6 months

    - What is so special that you like most and least?

    Most:
    -Versatility
    -Respect of the instrument and high dynamic
    Saturation-quality

    The -:
    -Cut down a little embarrassing, because loss bass.
    Tone-and volume settings to adjust when switching from one mode to another saturation.
    Otherwise the pedal would be perfect!

    - Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    Yes, not bad. I also have a Boss DS1. I wanted to move towards the big overdrive. It is sure to make a good choice with this pedal. After, it depends on the sound that is sought.

    - How would you rate the quality / price?
    The price to be quite varied. A € 150, the price / quality ratio is very good. At € 175 it is good, I bought it at 200 €, it's worth it.

    - With experience, you do again this choice? ...
    Did not find better for me. A classic to have in his pedal-board! effect of quality!

    If you possdes the first six albums of Zeppelin you s'ras not either!
    Anyway in conclusion, is to the ball but I will even buy a "Plexitone" by Carl Martin, Because you got the same sound but much more! Go to the test Plexitone! A big thank you to Davy PDAL Aviss Paris for his advice, no mind sucker.
    Matos: 76 Start, LP Custom, Rivera KnuckelHead55, axis fuzz, voodoo vibe RM, tube screamer, whammy, cry baby

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been three days that I have the two pedals (OCD and Plexitone), my ears bleeding and I must say that even when I had trouble choosing between the two.
    The grain of OCD in blues is a bit better but really a bit for the rest of Plexi has a crunch channel, a 20 db boost and a high gain channel. In addition, passing a little time on rglages there is no sound of OCD that I could not reproduce the Plexi and the reverse is not true. The quality of his pedals of both is really the same.
    on the other hand I m'demande What goes well I can use my Ibanez Tube Screamer? A tilt the amp, right?

    On 26/03/2009
    It's been a while since I now use the plexitone and I am always happy but given the current price in the States of OCD (145 USD) I have also cracked the pedals. Why? Because, with the Les Paul range of the crunch is limited to the first quarter of the knob "Crunch" the plexitone whereas with OCD can qualify more easily, and as I said, blues dj OCD is better then for 108 euros more I have both and that's good!
    Otherwise it is version 4 of OCD and ds as well I hack in every sense j'f'rai pter p'tit test as a blase Arkos Tina!

Must also be in mfier dpart, Because the bass and treble are expected rgler the knob on the "Tone" and this is the case but also be assayed with the drive. But the combinations with the three knobs are always hyper INTERESTED.
    I test with parallle Plexitone, rsultat the Plexitone is more aggressive with less bass and a bit more screaming while the OCD is near the trs JTM45 sounds of Jimmy Page 12 APRS to drive. You send the Whole Lotta Love and rock n 'roll is serious and the (test with a Les Paul and a 335 P90). Playing on the knob of the drive before 12pm and level, the sound is clear when approaching the grain and ACDC with P90 in the first quarter of the drive knob and with a lot of levels (close to rglages tube screamer) we obtain good grain bluesy, grains that are more difficult to obtain on the Plexitone. The tone knob is always the most effective and allows an infinite colors.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For résumé j'tais dj convinced of the quality of Bouzin but in version 4 and in view of the price it should not hsiter of the ball. The best version of this low reinforcing the drive! Try on a 4 x 12 (12 x 2 test Rivera) I think it's a killing.
    To conclude the comparison with the Plexitone the Plexi will be adapting well to aggressive rock with a lot of treble when the OCD is best of vintage rock. But beware, once you can do anything with the two From the time we have fingers, toes even as when 80 percent of its earned.
    For those looking for good or are spcialiss bluesy Led Zep is not the picture is OCD. For those who want an aggressive sound with good crunch pchu big sound standard with an additional boost is the plexi.

    good boost, great for classic rock

    Fulltone OCD V1.1Published on 07/19/11 at 12:10
    The fulltone ocd is an analog overdrive pedal with a pretty wide variety of sounds. It has the standard 1/4" inputs and outputs, a dc jack that can take 9-18 volts, controls for volume, gain, and tone, plus a high pass/low pass switch. It has a single true bypass stomp switch.

    UTILIZATION

    This is a no-frills overdrive pedal that is a breeze to set up and get going. The controls are very simple and sound surprisingly good at noon which I love in pedals. It does take a bit of time to get the volume leveled out and figure a good balance with the tone knob and high pass/low pass switch. The manual is fine and not really needed after the first use.

It does take a bit of time to get the volume leveled out and figure a good balance with the tone knob and high pass/low pass switch. The manual is fine and not really needed after the first use.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I used this pedal in a couple different ways. When playing in my main band, which is mostly metal, I mostly used it to boost the lead channel on my framus tube amp. It's a pretty common trick where you keep the gain all the way down, tone just over noon, and crank the volume. This makes the guitar hit the first gain stage a bit harder and compress more. Combining this with the slight bass cut on high pass gives you a tighter distortion sound that is pretty much the standard for modern metal. On our lighter songs I used the pedal with more gain and less volume on my clean channel as a mid-way point between clean and crunch.

    As a standalone overdrive it was sometimes great and other times I felt it was a bit grating on the ears. It was tough finding a good balance between too much high end and not enough where it became muddy. It can get a great classic rock sound but seemed to really need a loud amp. At lower volumes it was just too fizzy sounding. I preferred using the low pass when used as a standalone overdrive on clean.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall it's a good pedal to have around and once you get it dialed in it's right there with the rest of the overdrive world. There are many different flavors available these days and this is one of the better ones for me. It is somewhat similar to a tube screamer when used as a boost but a bit clearer. The one thing I do not like is how many different versions there are out there.I have played a version 2 and 3 as well and did not really find a lot of sounds you could not get out of version 1.

    Where do I begin with this pedal. This is quite simply one of the best pedal you can buy on the market.
    Ill start by giving the difference that this 1st version has sound wise. This is the sound that started it all.

    Version 1-
    Serial numbers:
    #000 - #4563

    Sound-
    -Lots of bass

    Where do I begin with this pedal. This is quite simply one of the best pedal you can buy on the market.

    Serial numbers:
    #000 - #4563

    Sound-
    -Lots of bass
    -lots of high end

    Version i is very similar to versions 2. When we hit version 3 and 4 that is where some more dramatic changes occurred.

    The OCD stands for Obsessive Compulsive Drive. This pedal is made to high standards and is quite an inexpensive boutique pedal.

    This pedal is good for slamming the front of your amp into high gain territory or just hitting it with some clean boost. Either way is equally spectacular.

    Fulltone OCD Obsessive Compulsive Drive Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal Features:

    * Tube-like overdrive and touch-sensitive response
    * HP/LP switch for instant re-voicing and uses
    * Volume, Tone, Drive controls
    * True bypass switching

    UTILIZATION

    The OCD pedal takes over where the tube screamer left off. Not only does this pedal make your amp bite more but it really spanks the front end giving it good saturated distortion. The tone is very fat and warm. It makes a Strat get a little beefier when plugged into a clean amp.

    Pretty simple functions with only 3 knobs and one mini switch that controls the high and low peek voicings. Good for changing or tailoring the voicing to fit your needs or your amps needs.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound is spectacular with this pedal. The color of the tone and the versatility of the pedal makes this a standard in gear magazines must have pedals. There isn't a sound that I don't like in this pedal. It does all of it so well that it is hard to choose which setting I like best. If I had to pick, I would go with the clean boost setting which would be taking your gain to around 9:00 and you tone around noon and your level as desired and slam the front of a heavily overdriven amp.

    Use this with a Strat and a Fender Deluxe and you'll have classic rock tones for days. Put it in front of a Marshall JCM800 with a Les Paul or a Charvel and you'll be cranking some heavy rock n roll tones.

    OVERALL OPINION

    At the price point this just makes sense. And you don't even have to modify this pedal to get it to work. I give it a perfect for that reason alone. Being able to sound amazing at under $150 for a used one and be ready for stage use is a must own.

    I recommend this pedal to any gigging guitarist and home player. This pedal will excite the dreamer guitar player for world changing tone. It is a blast to play and will be in my pedal hall of fame.
