If you love the first 2 Hendrix releases then you'll love this pedal, with 2 Germanium transistors hand-picked and tested for optimum performance.
The pedal is very easy to use and even though it has more controls than most in its class they make immediate sense.
Very easy to use, it's a wah. Very smooth toe click operation and a nice led to let you know if it's engaged.
The Fulltone "Clyde" was born from taking the best of the best of my more than 25 pc. vintage Vox wah collection, and analyzing every aspect, going so far as sacrificing a few of the vintage inductors to get it right.
It's an overdrive pedal with lots of tonal options on it.
This pedal is designed to take a clean amp and turn it into a 2 channel medium gain amp with a volume/distortion boost.
New! Hear the OCD on Robin Trower's 2006 Tour, here's a song from 6-29-06 in NY. Notice how incredibly well the OCD cleans up, he rarely ever turns off the pedal, doing the entire range of sounds with the guitar's volume knob.
The OCD version 1.4 is a very versatile pedal, one of the most versatile overdrive/distortion pedals around.
In terms of getting a good sound out of it, it's pretty easy as it has a variety of useful tones, from light crunch to Overdriven meltdown.
Extremely easy pedal to use. Actually it's pretty hard to get a sound out of it that you will not like. I simply love this small guy.
Overall I am extremely impressed with this pedal. Mike Fuller really captured the essence of the late 60s Germanium Fuzz, and more so the Tone Bender. It is a very easy pedal to use and very easy to get your sound out of it.
It's not very hard to use. It is one of those pedals that could take a day to find that sweet spot, and then some. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to set compared to some of the other heavy fuzz pedals, like the Fuzz Factory and Fender Blender.
