With some fresh new updates, the Fulltone OCD has all the great tones of the pedal's original version, and it provides guitar players with a tube-like sound in a great pedal format.
The Fulltone Obsessive Compulsive Drive (OCD) is a new version of a classic pedal. It’s designed to have all of the great tones of the first version, but with a few modern updates. The Fulltone OCD has been created to give guitar players a tube-like sound in a pedal format.
There are three unit controls – Volume, Drive, and Tone – so the Fulltone OCD delivers a wide range of tones and overdrive levels. Additionally, there’s a center-mounted High Peak/Low Peak switch. The high peak switch gives more overdrive and more midrange, and the low peak switch is accurate to the sound of your guitar and amp with very little coloration.
The Fulltone Obsessive Compulsive Drive is equipped with a Class A discrete 2N5457 JFET input section, and the input impedance has been raised from the previous 330K to one megaohm, for an increased dynamic range. The output section of the OCD uses Fulltone’s unique “Enhanced Bypass,” an FET output buffer that helps the pedal sound the same no matter where in the effects chain it is placed.
Further, the pedal features true bypass or enhanced bypass via a switch inside the pedal. And notably, the Fulltone OCD, like all of the company’s pedals, is built with a strong emphasis on solid construction and durability.
