Well, a buddy of mine picked up one of these on Saturday, I spent Sunday playing around with it since he lives in Calgary and didn't have anything to play it through. Long-story-short: I fell enough in love with it to start scouring CL for one.

A couple of days later and I've got mine. Cheap and mint condition, thanks CL!

I don't tend to put a whole lot of stock into what people say over the internet, which, as in all cases, was good to do with the OCD. It's not the god-sent tonal savior that everyone makes it out to be. You still have to have a good amp and the finesse to get the most out of this extremely sensitive pedal. All that said, this is still the best of the overdrive pedals I've ever used. I'll definitely be suggesting the OCD around here from now on.

No idea, never tried an OCD through a Vox AC30.

My Bad Monkey actually works better as a boost so far.

have you tried it on the 18V mode yet? Its a whole different animal when you have more juice running through it.

^just being a nerd but more voltage doesn't necessarily mean more juice. it does mean the components on the inside willl act differently though. voltages will change but the current drawn might actually drop.

HNPD. i think i might look into this to overdrive my soon to be matchless.
#13
Congrats man, these are supposed to be great. I've actually been considering one, basically to try to get a crunch tone out of my Bassman... You think this is a good option?

So just think warm, punchy cleans, with OCD over top... Would that be an acceptable Marshall crunch tone?

Look into a Danelectro Transparent OD if you want to keep your amps sound sing a pedal.

Oh, and ch0 - HNPD!

Haha.. yeah I know... but just using it as a figure of speech...

Technically the current will halve with a doubling of the voltage right? Please correct if I'm wrong... I'm a researcher not a electrical tech. lol

Thanks! No, I don't have an 18v adapter to try it with yet. Hard to imagine this pedal getting much better though. The more I play it the more I'm blown away by how dynamic it is.

The HP mode on the OCD does give everything a pretty distinct British flavor. It would definitely be worth trying.

be careful with the HP LP switch, mine broke.
Will do, thanks for the advice.

No, Fuller designed his pedals to not fry. And with just some component swaps any pedal will be fine at 18v.

I really wanna get an 18v power supply for this thing. It sounds great as is but seems to hit a bit of a wall with the gain when you try and crank it past 3 o'clock.
