Get ready for responsive, thick overdrive. The Obsessive Compulsive Overdrive if for guitarists who are OCD about their tone.

I have to admit. I have not tried this pedal with any other guitar besides my Strats. But this pedal gives me everything that I want.

The best way that I can describe the sound of the OCD is Quality and Character.

As a Clean Drive
When you uses this pedal with less drive as a clean boost for your tube amp, you will notice that it delivers a very strong character from your guitar and is very sensitive to your dynamics while playing.

As an Overdrive
I have loved the Ibanez TS9 because it allows a strat to keep a vocal type of midrange while having singing trebles. When you add drive to the TS9, it retains those characteristics which is why it is the industry standard for strat guitarists who want to keep their stratty character and get the quality sound of a tube amp.

The reason why the OCD is my preferred pedal over the TS9 is that it does not let the low end distort as early. The TS9 allows you lower notes to distort earlier and seems to then amplify the signal. The OCD gives you the fattest low end with tons of tone. If you like blues or hard rock, you will notice that this feature is exactly what you wanted to give your playing a really strong character. You gain boldness and when your low end does gain some crunch, it is the biggest baddest tone that you could dream of.

I use this pedal with my HSS strat and through a blues Jr III and use the clean boost for the coolest clean tone ever. It allows your playing dynamics to drive the amp, not some arbitrary clipping from your pedal. When I am playing heavier blues or rock stuff, I just turn up the drive and have the boldest and highest quality sound that I have ever played with.

The HP/LP switch
Shifting into HP is almost like a gain boost.

- Very amp-like tones
- Various tonal options (LP: low peak = Tweed-like, HP: high peak = Marshall-like)
- Very uncompressed gain (this was what I was seeking so I list it as a benefit.) and a lot of it
- 9 - 18 volt usage (18 volts sounds smoother, less fizzy in both settings. 9 volt sounds great too, but LP setting leaves a little to be desired at the lower voltage. HP at 9 volts = very cool.)

- personally, none.
- Very little compression (again, I like this but many may not. This sounds nothing like a Fulldrive 2 so steer clear if that's what your going for)

After trying out a number of "overdrive" pedals I gave this one a shot - and it turned out to be just the right one for my setup. I like to start with a nice clean tone, and then use one or two differently voiced overdrive pedals to give me both a crunch tone and one that is more suited for leads. The Way Huge Green Rhino is perfect for my crunch sound, but once it's set I needed something that would let the leads sound full, but still cut through the mix. Tried the Pigtronix Fat Drive, but it was too bassy; the TC Electronic Mojo Mojo Drive was too edgy for my taste, as were a number of other "overdrive" pedals - most had a "jagged" or "edgy" tone quality - not a smoother, rounder tone. The Fulltone Fulldrive got close, but the boost switch just added more distortion, not more volume ... so the cost didn't justify the tone I was looking for. The OCD give me two different types of overdrive - one voiced more like an American amp that is pushed, and a higher gain setting that is more like a British Vox or Marshall tone. It does the job admirably - and again, this is just based on what I personally find pleasing to my ear. If I need to boost the volume I kick in my Pigtronix Class A Boost. And I also get different tones out of both the Class A and the OCD, depending on whether I run them at 9 volts or 18 volts. The latter gives more headroom and cleaner tones, while the 9 volts allow the crunch tones on both to kick in sooner.

I take time to read reviews and listen to as many audio samples of effects pedals as I can on websites and YouTube, and once I narrow down my choices I generally order in the ones I want to try with my own setup, do a shoot-out, keep the ones that suit me and send back the ones that don't. So I always make sure I can return these for a refund if they don't work out. What works for me may not work for you, but maybe this will give you an idea of what the pedal can do.

By Ed on August 9, 2011
After researching overdrive pedals for what seemed like forever, I chose the Fulltone OCD. The reviews on Amazon helped as well, along with Youtube demos and guitar mags. What finally made my choice for me was when I found out that Robin Trower used one for his last 2 U.S. tours befor Fulltone made him a sig model.

Okay, this pedal is very versatile for an overdrive. The HP/LP switch alone gives you a very distinct tone for solos or rhythm, and tweaking the dials adds to the fun (I'm constantly playing with the tones; a minor adjustment makes a huge difference). The coolest thing is that this pedal is responsive to your playing dynamics; picking softly dials down the OD, then you can just unleash the crunch with harder attacks...much better than trying to roll-off the volume. The true-bypass is great, as you lose no original signal when not engaged. As of now, this is my favorite piece of gear.

If you're looking for massive distortion, keep looking. But this will be my 'go to' blues/rock pedal for quite some time.
