OVERVIEW

Get all the delicious overdrive of a tube amp in this enhanced, V2 OCD.

The Fulltone OCD V2 (Obsessive Compulsive Drive) overdrive pedal packs classic OD tones into a compact pedal with simple, no-fuss operation. From heavy crunch rich with overtones and feedback to spanky cleans, the OCD delivers the sounds of a great tube amp, as sell as the same sensitivity and response to your playing style.

Along with standard Volume, Drive, and Tone controls, the OCD V2's HP/LP (High Peak/Low Peak) switch takes the pedal from a clean boost to manic, sustain-laden distortion. True bypass switching.

Some notable V2 updates to the classic OCD:
-Output buffer (when pedal is turned on in True-Bypass mode, or always when in Enhanced Bypass mode), which eliminates it from being influenced by effects that came after it. Translation: Your sound remains consistent regardless of placement in today’s more complex signal-chains, loopers and pedalboards. This buffer also had a positive effect on the sound, it reduced loading on the pedal’s hard-clipping stage, allowing more sustain of both the sound and the overtones.

-Class A configured discrete 2N5457 JFET input section, raising the input impedance to 1 mega ohms (previously 330K) and increasing the dynamics. This results in significantly better interaction with both single-coil and humbuckers.

-Internal switch to choose between ”Enhanced Bypass” and True-Bypass, and with no popping sound in either mode.

Visual Changes
The Fulltone OCD V2 has slightly smaller “OCD” and “Fulltone” logos, along with “Built in the USA” under the Fulltone logo.

Next, the In and Out jacks are placed exactly at the halfway point of the left and right sides on V2, whereas with all previous versions the jacks were located more toward the bottom.

The Fulltone Story
Fulltone was founded in 1991 by Michael Fuller, a session guitarist, composer, performer, electronic tinkerer featured in Guitar Player magazine, and first place winner in their "Ultimate Guitarist Competition" Blues category. Fulltone pedals were born out of a love for music, tone, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, etc. Early on Fuller developed a love for fine vintage pedals, and his frustration at the inconsistencies and the often fragile nature of old gear drove him to start Fulltone. Rich, Fat-sounding TONE TOOLS with a reliable build quality is the goal. Fulltone effects carry a 5 year warranty and are built for (and by) musicians.

Fullertone manufactures their own custom potentiometers because what has been offered as "Industry Standard" has a 20% failure rate within 2 years is not acceptable to them.

All Fulltone pedals are hand-built and tested at their shop in Southern California, using full-sized top-notch components.

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

I'm 62 years old, and have been playing guitar since I was 13. I now have a small recording studio, and getting the right sound is very important to me. Having gone through a host of pedals, I have found the OCD Overdrive to be a huge asset to my music. Being torn between the OCD and the Ibanez Tube screamer. Thanks to another guitar players advise, I purchased the OCD over the Tube Screamer. Did I make a mistake? If so, I can't hear what I'm missing. As others have written, this pedal will break up really well, regardless of which amp I use: Marshall JVM410H with JCM 800 Lead 1960 cab, Fender Twin Reverb 65 Reissue, Fender Deluxe 65 Reissue Reverb, Fender Blues Jr. NOS, & Vox AC15C1, this pedal sounds great on each amp. As you know these are all tube amps, and considered top notch. Not only is this a great sound live, it is also great when recording. Since I use a noise gate, if there is a problem with hiss I don't know about it. Am I missing something by not using the Ibanez Tube screamer? When looking at reviews, both pedals have a large number of fans. One thing I know for sure when it comes to your pedal board. If you don't have an overdrive you are missing out on the sound you can't get without one. Since my Marshall has 4 channels with two of them being very high in gain. I have no need for a pedal with heavy distortion. In addition, not being a heavy metal player, only you will have to play through this pedal to see if it is right for you. When using my Fender Twin,Deluxe Reverbs and Vox, you can get some great sounds. If you play classic rock, 60's & early 70's, Motown, light metal, country, and Gospel. I can't see how there can be a better overdrive pedal than this one. There may be others as good as the OCD Overdrive, but they want be better.

I took the OCD plunge after hearing nothing but great things about. I've had it 5 weeks and the verdict is -- what is the fuss about? It is not bad or junk but I certainly have better pedals. I like my Modtone hi gainer a lot better. I also like my Ibanaez Tube Screamer and Marshalll Guv'nor better.

As a result of having better pedals this is going off my pedal board.

I Played it with a model year 1977 Marshall 1959 SLP and an 80s JCM800. Not bad but I get better boost, better tones and more flexibility out of my other pedals. I really got this for the SLP and was disappointed for sure.

    Comments about Fulltone OCD Obsessive Compulsive Drive Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

    Incredible.
    Incredibly creamy drive and ultra flexible tone palette. Built like a little brick and you can see that it is hand-made.

    Mine has a red led which lights up twice as much when connected to a 18Vdc power source. You can feel the headroom increase in a heart beat. I don't want to use it a 9Vdc anymore, even though it's incredibly awesome at that voltage setting.

    Get it. Get it.
    Superb. I would marry the footswitch.
    Other overdrives are twice the price, but not half the tube-feel.

      Comments about Fulltone OCD Obsessive Compulsive Drive Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Been through a LOT of distortion pedals. Some were good, others were not. However, none were exactly what I was looking for. Until now. In my opinion, the OCD is the Holy Grail of distortion pedals. Very dynamic and musical, very smooth, warm, and full. Rolling back your volume garners some of the best tones the pedal has to offer. You could easily leave the OCD all the time, using your guitar volume and picking attack to determine how much drive you want.

      Bottom line is that the OCD is a simply awesome distortion pedal. If you only had to use one dirt pedal, the OCD could do the job and leave you smiling. Don't hesitate to try it... you'll be glad you did.

        Comments about Fulltone OCD Obsessive Compulsive Drive Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This pedal is great if you want a pretty genuine cranked tube amp sound, ranging from a blackface on 11 to a vox or lower watt marshall. BUT I've found this pedal works best for recording or for jamming with yourself. It absolutely does NOT cut through live, i've played it at about half a dozen shows with various guitars. Whenever I soundchecked my guitar is sounded great, but once the band kicks in you disappear completely. I agree with the other reviewer on here who said there is a weird volume problem with this pedal. You can leave the settings EXACTLY the same (I've taken pics with my phone) but the volume output will vary whenever you turn it on. It's a shame because otherwise it's a well-built, good sounding pedal, but I recommend keeping it at home.

        Comments about Fulltone OCD Obsessive Compulsive Drive Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Buy it.
        I went to my local guitar chain intent on leaving with the "distortion sound" that I wanted. After trying about 8 different boxes, I finally gave the OCD a whirl, having read excellent reviews. Within 10 seconds I knew this was it. It's that chunky, fat overdrive that I had been hearing in my head. I loved the warmth and tone of the tubescreamer, but needed to push it further. The OCD was that pedal. I can't say enough good things about it. It's everything it's hyped up to be. it's the sound of rock and roll.

        OCD Obsessive Compulsive Drive Overdrive Pedal is like a Tube-Amp in a Pedal!

        By Eric Bensinger

        from Panama City, Florida

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Fulltone OCD Obsessive Compulsive Drive Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

        Overall, I believe you can't go wrong with the OCD pedal. I've played it through a Fender Blues Junior, a Crate Palomino, and even a solid-state Fender M-80. On all of these amps the pedal produced a better sound than what was available with the amp alone. The OCD takes an average amp's sound and makes it better. The OCD, combined with another boost pedal for solos, makes a great setup for rock/blues style playing. It has a beautifully articulate sound, like a great tube amp cranked up.
        The OCD pedal is brilliant: it has simple controls, a variety of tones, and a reasonable price. (I own version 4). It seems that almost any setting produces a usable sound. It can be set to simply produce an almost transparent volume boost, or can crank up the drive and get a creamy, saturated, overdrive sound. What I like best about the OCD is the fact that individual notes in chords can be clearly heard, and they don't "mush" together as can happen with many other distortion/overdrive pedals. Additionally, the pedal reacts much like an overdriven tube amp; therefore, when the drive knob is cranked up on the OCD, one can "roll back" the guitar's volume knob and clean up the sound, without losing much clarity. Many other pedals sound like mud when using that technique. The OCD is a great pedal.
        The OCD is built solidly: it has a rugged metal case and solid switch. I use the pedal weekly, and it is holding up well. I feel confident that it will last for many years.
        The OCD is a great value for the money. Adding the OCD to your setup is like upgrading to a better amp. It increases your sound quality, and is inspiring to play. And that is worth every penny.

          Comments about Fulltone OCD Obsessive Compulsive Drive Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

          After auditioning many pedals, since there are so many out there, the OCD ends up being in my top picks. It also is top rated by many, so I agree with the collective opinions of the many. So many good points made here by others. This pedal is a very wide ranging and dynamic and responsive pedal. I think we are at a crossroad now in music sound technology that the much sought after tube sound is finally closing in on us so that we can actually combine the best of the tube world with the best of the solid state world. There are great things about both. I have always gotten better metal and overdrive tones from pedals into solid state amps when playing lead solo. The tube amps have always given me better sound of everything but lead solo. The reason this happens is because driving a tube amp hard causes clipping to occur and it would force the amp to lose presence on peaks. Using a pedal like the OCD in front of a tube amp is fabulous because it has its own tube sound and reduces the necessity of the amp to be driven so hard to achieve the overdrive you are trying to get. So when you blend your distortions from the amp and the pedal you get no harsh clipping. In yesteryear solid state amps there was much more volume available so getting loud was not a problem if using a distortion pedal. It just lacked the feel of the player who could feel the liveliness of the playing in his fingers. The listener mostly could not hear this. Now the tube response is getting very good in sound and feel. Tube hybrid amps are very nice crossovers of the two worlds of tubes and solid states. Now pedals like the OCD sound much like a crossover blend and is very dynamically responsive. This pedal feels like a crossover of overdrive and distortion just like a Marshall Stack would sound using an overdrive into a full gain level output. It's really warm and crunchy in both tube and solid state. I doubt that it can get better sounding classic rock than this pedal puts out.

            As with many of you, I have owned dozens of boost and overdrive pedals over the years. This one has really ended my search. I just love the full harmonics that it adds to everything I play. The drive is extremely versatile and you can use it all the way from a simple boost (with harmonics) to a pretty raunchy drive. Nice sustain and very responsive indeed. This really sounds nice in front of a good Fender amp (awesome with an old Bassman head).

              Did I need this? No! I already own a tube screamer, the 808 reissue model. I also own the Wampler sovereign distortion pedal. Am I glad I bought this? Yes! The OCD pedal is very amp like. It is very easy to dial in a good sound. It seems well constructed. The HP and LP modes add some versatility. On my pedalboard, the OCD comes in third place. I usually do not like the Fulltone stuff however this particular pedal is pretty good.

                I have recently gone back to individual stompboxes after years of multi effect pedals and rack mounts. I tried at least 50 other pedals before I settled on this one. I think it has a great well rounded tone and I love the way my mids sound with it. I found setting that I love and will stick with it but there is plenty of room to experiment and change things up. I would definitely recommend this pedal.

                Comments about Fulltone OCD Obsessive Compulsive Drive Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

                Hands down the best OD out there. Super versatile, for overdriving a clean amp or boosting a dirty one. If I was in a popular guitar magazine's musican's rig column it would be my "secret weapon." My pedal chain isn't long, but its for sure my favorite and it wouldn't be complete with anything less.
                Simple controls, yet easy to dial in. Very versatile, put the volume at 1 oclock and gain at 9 oclock and you have a good boost. Or turn on the HP and crank it and you can have any amp raging.
                Solid construction, solid switch, solid around. It's taken 8 months of stomping and no sign of giving in.
                Little more than I wanted to pay, but you get what you pay for... this thing blows all the others I've owned out of the water.

                This pedal is great.. You can get all sorts of sounds out of it. You can get more of a mild sound with a lot of low end or you can get a crunch sound with a lot of high end and low end. This pedal offers all sorts of different sounds and you can even multiply that by more with the low/high power switch on the pedal. This pedal would have to rank in the highest value for the price. It's a great addition to my board and I would def recommend this pedal to anyone looking for a great overdrive pedal.

                  Comments about Fulltone OCD Obsessive Compulsive Drive Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal:

                  I'm an overdrive pedal junky. I own TS808s, TS10, Pork Loin, Fulldrive, Blues Driver, and a few others. While most of them are great OD pedals, they all seem to do the same thing...alter the sound of your original pure guitar tone. Sometimes that's what you want and it works great, but I was always frustrated by overdrive pedals especially because I would find my ideal tone with the volume control set relatively high and there would end up being a huge difference in volume between my clean and overdrive signal (granted there should be an appropriate increase in volume).

                  The day that I played my OCD for the first time is when I realized how much I was missing in OD pedals. Instead of listing everything I'm so impressed with, I can sum it all by saying that YOU NEED TO TRY IT TO UNDERSTAND HOW GREAT IT IS. The OCD is the most transparent, natural, and responsive OD pedal in the world. If you're reading this that means you're thinking about buying one. I can promise you'll be blown away like I was so go place your order now. Unbelievable pedal.

                    I spent months reading reviews and watching youtube vids trying to decide which of the hundreds of od gain pedals to buy. I already play a bigMuff pi through a fender blues deluxe tube amp and needed something to cover mild gain to a considerable amount of od nearing distortion field without reaching wild levels of gain. I am absolutely amazed and blown away by the sound of the OCD, it just gives me all I need to play Interpol, Joy Division, Sonic Youth, Foo Fighters, blues, post rock kind of sound. If I ever need a higher gain pedal I'd go for the Blackstar ht dist and I will be set. My final deathmatch was between the OCD and the Plimsoul. The OCD has a great amount of distortion, seriously and at 18v it blasts, BUT if you need even more, and want subtleness to a higher gain field, get the Plimsoul. I'm sure I'll get it one day too, but as for now, I'm set. The OCD is a MUST HAVE for all guitarists. After all, we all end up collecting pedals.

                        I use the OCD for that right on the edge of break up sound ala the Stones/early rock n roll/americana type sounds and there is no better pedal out there. I've tried over 50+ overdrives over the years including the Xotic AC. BB, TImmy, MI Audio Blues Pro, Barber LTD, Toadworx Texas Flood, Ibanez Tube Screamers, Zvex Box of Rock and many more. The trick is, for those who complain this pedal has too much gain, is to run it at 18v in HP. It makes a world of difference and will make those think differently about the pedal ESPECIALLY if your after the low gain thing. 18v add more clean headroom and volume and make a good pedal into and EXCELLENT pedal IMHO.

                        Another reason I love this pedal is that it sounds fantastic with both single and humbucker guitars. I play and record with both so it is imperative that the pedal I'm using works with both. This pedal is also extremely versatile The gain range can go from clean boost to break up, to overdrive to full on high gain sounds that are harmonically rich. However, that's not news to anyone.

                        Say what you want about Mike Fuller but Fulltone to this day, still build some of the most rugged and affordable boxes out. I have yet to play one that doesn't sound great.

                        Just for the record I never write reviews. I've been playing for 15+ plus years and I am very picky about my gear and won't endorse something unless I absolutely love it. The only other pieces of gear I'll openly endorse are Fender Deluxe Reverb, Dr. Z Maz 18NR, Boss Chromatic Tuner and Mesa Cabs. I know it sounds like I'm blowing smoke but this pedal is amazing. The feel, the sound, the versatility, not to mention the aesthetically pleasing simplicity of this pedal make it already a classic in its own right.

                          This Pedal Is Good For Low Distortion,Warm, Oldschool Tones. I Was Not Impressed With The Sound On My Guitars.

I Crave More Versatility, Output, And Sustain, So I Payed A Little More Money And Picked Up A VFE Distortion3, Awesome Pedal.

                              All the positive reviews on this pedal should tell you something. I played at least 15 different overdrives before picking this one. In the process, I learned that I am really not a fan of the Tube Screamer mid range hump (or other similar pedals), and some other options out there don't give much low end.

                              This pedal is able to give you anything from a slight volume boost to heavy distortion. I can even get mine to match a Boss MetalZone much of the time. Only thing it doesn't do well is the heavy metal full-on distorted "sing".

                              HP/LP switch gives some nice options in the level of "growl" that you get. When I play worship music, the LP works well for giving some dirt withouth going over the top, and HP works well for when I do classic rock or alternative stuff.

                              Very good pedal, very well built. On my first one, the tone knob went out after about 2 months. It was replaced by the store immediately, no questions asked. So Fulltone backs up their product. No problems since.

                              You will not be disappointed.

                              This pedal is going in my board for sure. It has two settings. One is a standard overdrive that sounds very nice and enhances my Boogie amp. Flip the switch and you have a class A british tube Marshall type sound that will make your hair stand up. I love it!! Now if Fulltone would make this pedal with seperate switches and knobs for both channels it would be perfect, and it would take up more room in my pedalboard. One channel has a higher output so if you change channels in a live setting you need to know where to set those knobs so you don't blow the roof off if you go to the class a type setting. Two seperate switches and two sets of settings would be ideal, but the pedal is still a keeper.
