If you are not quite getting your sound in the range of the dials, make sure to re-explore in the other voicing settings, as it offers a whole new side to the pedal.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Overall, the Fulltone OCD offers an overdrive with a more recessed midrange, smoother highs, and bigger lows than your typical tubescreamers. For this reason, it works very well in front of a more mid oriented amplifier, such as a Marshall. Using it as a boost in front of this sort of amplifier really helps to balance the frequencies, and just brought more out of the amp. When using it to boost my Boogies, the low end would get a little too wooly, and midrange a little too lost. For an overly smooth lead sound, it would be a great combination, but for a percussive and strong attack, it was not the right combination. As a stand alone overdrive, the pedal is astounding- one of the best in my opinion. It is nearly as dynamic and harmonically rich as an amplifier would be, which is a true feet for a pedal. On a final note, I REALLY like this pedal with single coil pickups. It really helped to fatten them up and getting things going.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is a unique overdrive from Fulltone, and very popular for good reason. Using it over a clean channel is like adding a whole new drive channel to your amplifier. With the right combination of pickups and amp, it also makes a great boost.

    I tried ODB3 (yuck), the DS-1 (double yuk) nothing to see! (Necessarily)
    I also have a Big Muff (and 3 apples in my fridge ... the pink lady).

    What I love most of all I would say ... bin. Precise adjustments, subtle interaction with the intensity of play, good sound palette.

    A yes it can also serve as a boost with the OD at 0, it can be interesting ...
    What I like least ... I have not had a blue LED but red! And the stickers provided and super ugly! Apart from that RAS.

    Value for money it must be said that this is 170 euros for 3 components and a pedal that can produce either very expensive! Anyway I do not know anything so ... at least for the sound I get was a good investment. I would do this choice.

    Well I'll go make a pie.

    Awesome!

    Fulltone OCD V1.1Published on 03/23/11 at 16:15
    Where do I begin with this pedal. This is quite simply one of the best pedal you can buy on the market. 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. They come in at around $135 for a new one and knock off 40% for a used one in this market. 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 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.

    Great, versatile pedal

    Fulltone OCD V1.1Published on 03/17/11 at 04:47
    The Fulltone OCD is a pedal of many faces, not just because of the different versions that are available but also because of the different tones you can get from it. Furthermore, it reacts differently depending on your guitars and amps. This is a pedal that you have to try with your own setups, it won't work with everything out there but if it does fit your setup, you are in for a threat.

    UTILIZATION

    With a very simple control layout, you can get a variety of tones ranging from boosts to serious gainy tones and that's before you have even tried the little HP/LP switch which also takes things into a new direction. And even then, the story is not over because the OCD also reacts dif…

    UTILIZATION

    With a very simple control layout, you can get a variety of tones ranging from boosts to serious gainy tones and that's before you have even tried the little HP/LP switch which also takes things into a new direction. And even then, the story is not over because the OCD also reacts different on the amount of voltage you feed it. Run it at 18v for more output and headroom. I’m still not 100% sure what the difference between high peak and low peak is but they both work, the HP in general gives you more gain and a more crunchy tone.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I have tried the different versions with the exception of V2 and for my rig, the V1 sounded best. I ran it usually with the gain relatively low as that got me a very punchy tone that worked great with single coils and humbuckers. Furthermore, I could boost the OCD with a TS-style pedal for lead sounds or use the OCD with the overdrive channel of my amp. One thing the OCD does well is retain articulation and dynamics. If you are the kinda player who likes to get tones from the volume control of your guitar, the OCD should work great for you.

    OVERALL OPINION

    At the moment, the OCD is sitting on a shelf as I always want to try other stuff but one day, it will be back on the board for sure.

    Touch sensitivity and complex overtones in a solid box!

    Fulltone OCD V1.1Published on 03/16/11 at 11:54

    The Fulltone OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Drive:) is a high quality overdrive/distortion pedal with amp-like overtones and feel.
    There have been several revisions of the pedal, each having slight tweaks to the sound. The pedal I am reviewing is version 4.

    Controls include Volume, Tone and Drive, and a toggle switch that selects either HP or LP which I believe stand for High Peak and Low Peak, respectively.

    The pedal is powered by a single 9 volt battery or a common 9 volt AC adapter.


    UTILIZATION

    The pedal is powered by a single 9 volt battery or a common 9 volt AC adapter.


    UTILIZATION

    It took me a while to find the OCD's sweet spot with my rig. The balance between gain and tone can be a bit tricky to find. I had a bit of trouble avoiding a congested, or harsh sound at first, but once I got it dialed in where I wanted, it was a blast to play through!



    SOUND QUALITY

    I tested this pedal with a Gibson Les Paul, Schecter C-1 Classic, G&L Invader and a cheap Hondo with Fender single coil pups, and then into three different amplifiers; a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier, Carvin MTS, and Fender Blues Deville. I felt that the humbucker equipped axes resulted in a slightly congested or harsh sound when used with this pedal. I noticed that while using the Schecter with the Seymour Duncan JB/Jazz coil-tapped, and the Hondo with single-coils, I liked the sound much more.
    Using single-coils with the OCD really opens it up and lets it breathe.

    Great tones can be had with any guitar however, and it just takes some experimenting with the HP/LP setting and getting the tone and drive set right. I felt that the pedal's sweet spot was with the tone just past noon and the gain at noon. I really liked this pedal as a mid-gain overdrive more than a maxed out distortion pedal.

    I also tested this pedal as a boost, to kick my already driven dirty channel into higher gain territory. I feel it was only average as a boost. It always felt stiff and hard and had an undesirable edge to it. Other pedals, like the Xotic BB (which I also reviewed) do the boost thing much better, at least for my preferences and needs.

    The HP and LP settings are useful, but can be frustrating. LP has a nice squishy feel. It "gives" like a good tube amp when you dig in to the strings, but this setting can also sound a tad bit muddy. Flip the switch to HP, and the pedal gets much louder, clearer and more distorted. My problem was that it got too nasty in the high end. I preferred keeping the unit in the LP setting and opening up the tone control until it just started sounding bright, but not overly so.

    The great thing about this pedal is how much it resembles a real amp, both in tone and feel. You can crank the volume up a bit and strum a chord and hear subtle overtones and complex textures in the gain. Most overdrive or distortion pedals sound flat and don't have that sort of realism or depth.
    Overall I'd describe the voicing of this pedal as more Fenderish and American than british. The mids are not pronounced at all in this pedal, regardless of the position of the tone control or HP/LP switch. These controls only affect the high frequencies. The mids always have a scooped sound to them.

    I feel that a mid-boost function would GREATLY improve this unit!

    OVERALL OPINION

    All things considered, the OCD is a fantastic achievement in getting that realistic amp feel in a stomp box. It excels as a touch sensitive overdrive with complex harmonics and overtones. However it is not voiced to fit in with every rig, and a mid boost function would greatly improve this pedal in my opinion.

    I sold my OCD pedal to fund another pedal purchase, but I will definitely be trying another Fulltone in the future! Perhaps a Catalyst or Plimsoul. Thanks for reading!

    Versatile and reliable, good stuff

    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Overdrive / distortion analog input output, power supply 9/18v
    A Miniswitch to move from a low peak (LP) to a High Peak (HP).

    UTILIZATION

    Very easy to use, wide range of settings, including gain, which can assay a very slight overdrive (especially in LP mode, the one I use most often) that adds just a little rough side when you attack a little (great with a Start for example).
    It may even be free of saturation, not Nu Metal, but still sharp, especially in HP mode.
    The mini switch allows me to adjust OCD according to the used guitar (Les Paul or Start) of the amplifier used and the desired sound. Practice.

    The mini switch allows me to adjust OCD according to the used guitar (Les Paul or Start) of the amplifier used and the desired sound. Practice.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The great versatility allows its use as boost demand (low mode peak) which stains very little sound.
    It's a good pedal, solid, reliable and very versatile. It can be powered by battery (easy access via 4 screws you can tighten / loosen by hand, although seen) or external power supply, what I do. It accepts all voltages between 9 and 18 volts higher the voltage, the higher it is supposed to have dynamics. I use it on 18v, it works very well, I can not really say more, though, actually, the sound seems to respond better to different shades with high voltage.
    The "tone" (frequency control) does not lose when it pushes the severe acute is that boast the manual, and it's true. This will keep a sound fat enough when you push the distortion into a corner.
    The finicky believe for different versions (from 1 to 4) there are big differences in sound. I leave that kind of finesse. Mine is version 4 (I think) and it works very well.


    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for almost two years I've used a truck and distos overdrive over the years and it is very suitable for professional use.
    Its versatility and reliability are very valuable, I always bring whatever my setup or guitar amp and whatever the style I play.
    It is a bit expensive, but for the quality stuff we really regret it (now if you give it a nice too).
