The Fulltone OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Drive) is an overdrive pedal designed for use with electric guitar but suitable with any type of electronic instrument.  The pedal is pretty basic in make up as it has standard 1/4 inch connections and requires nine volts of power.  This isn't a rack mountable piece of gear - it is a stomp box.


Using the Fulltone OCD is very easy as it only has a few parameters that need to be accounted for.  It has knobs for volume, drive, and tone and also has a high pass/low pass filter.  Even if you don't have much experience using overdrive pedals, I don't think that you'll have much trouble figuring out what is going on here because there isn't all that much to it.  I don't think that a manual is necessary, although I haven't seen it so I can't speak to how well put together it is.


The sound quality heard from the Fulltone OCD is very impressive overall.  It has a very realistic sounding tone and works great in a variety of situations.  I have used the pedal for recording with a Fender Strat and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb and I've always been happy with the tone that I am able to achieve with this combination.  The best way that I can describe the sound of this overdrive pedal would be to say that it is very authentic sounding and definitely has an analog feel to it.


I've been using the Fulltone OCD for only a few months but it has definitely won me over in the short time that I've been using it.  I've used a lot of different distortion pedals and tend to know right off the bat which ones I'll like and end up using and which ones I won't, so I knew pretty early on that this would be a pedal that I would continue to use for a while.  I've overall been very impressed with the pedals made by Fulltone as they are all very authentic sounding and full of life.  While you might pay a little more for the OCD than you would some other overdrive pedals, it is definitely worth it as more times than not you will be getting a superior pedal.
