if you've ever owned a GREAT amp, like a Marshall 18 watt, a VOX AC15, a Marshall JTM45 and if you have a place where you can crank them up loud, then you know what I'm talking about... Smack a power chord and you (not only) hear the fundamental notes...but you get (count 'em) 4, 5, even 6 additional overtones ringing into a feedback... notes that you can whistle if your ear is good enough! Think; Zep's "Ocean," "Custard Pie," Classic tones including James Gang, the Beatles, AC/DC, FREE., etc.
Back off the guitar's volume and there are a dozen great other sounds at your fingertips... Clean, spanky sounds, with all the highs and lows still intact. And a Tele still sounds like a Tele, a Les Paul like a Les Paul.
PEDALS (until now) just can't hold a candle to what a good amp can do if you are really picky. You not only lose all the touch sensitivity, but forget about those complex Harmonics. (For me) It's always been somewhat of a compromise using Overdrive
I wish I had bought one years ago Review by David
I had pretty much given up on finding a compact overdrive pedal that I liked on the basis that nothing (excepting chunky pedals actually containing a valve) sounds as good as my Marshall, Orange or Laney overdriven so why settle for second best? Still hankering for a compact pedal to give me a little more flexibility I came to the OCD after trying far too many other pedals, I am glad I finally arrived. It does what I want - keeps my tone and dynamics intact whilst adding a useful range of drive with very little noise. Try one of these first before spending money on multiple lesser pedals and you may save yourself quite a bit of cash. It may not suit everyone, if you want your tone shaped and (usually) thinned) by an overdrive pedal then this may not be for you, however if you like the precious tone you have and want to add some dirt then try and OCD. Construction wise it is a little work of art. (Posted on 26/06/2012)
