OCD - Compulsive Obsessive Drive
FULLTONE OCD - Compulsive Obsessive Drive - € 179,00 NEW
The OCD is an extremely open sounding Overdrive/Distortion circuit. It is different from overdrives you've tried because it has a good bit more Dynamic-Range...meaning the difference between picking soft or picking hard will actually yield a wider range of distortion (with less compression) than traditional diode-clipped overdrives, which behave as if the gain is either ON or OFF! The OCD also creates more complex overtones without changing the inherent tone of whatever amp and guitar you're playing through, lifting off that blanket other drive pedals can put on your signature sound. The OCD accomplishes its tube-like distortion through the unusual combination of MOSFET and Germanium clippers (unlike 95% of all pedals) that are not placed in the feedback loop ....unheard of in a pedal prior to the OCDs 2005 release.
Because of its huge amount of available output, the OCD works great as an Overdrive in front of amps to goose them into submission, as well as through Master-Volume amps to drive them much harder than most ODs, but it also excels at creating its own distortion with all the chime of a Class A amp with its complex array of overtones. The OCD gives you the feeling that your amp is Cranked at even living room volumes so Clean playing is more dynamic and dirty sounds still have the ringing overtones. And the greatest thing is that you can access a slew of other in-between sounds by simply turning down your guitars volume control.
