The OCD, after 12 years of minor tweaks, now receives a change different enough that it warrants a V2 designation, an explanation and warrants a trip to your L&M to give it another listen. Not a subtle change when turned on; not a subtle change when turned off (in E.B. mode).

Sonic changes to OCD V2

NEW FEATURE output buffer (when pedal is turned on in True-Bypass mode, or always when in Enhanced Bypass mode) which eliminates it from being influenced be 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.

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

NEW FEATURE Internal switch to choose between "Enhanced Bypass TM" & True-Bypass, and with no popping sound in either mode.

This pedal really drove home for me how a good overdrive can sound in front of a high gain amp. My Marshall DSL40cr has never sounded better on the ultra channel. Beyond that it has a great array of sounds you can achieve. It genuinely sounds like a tube style distortion and you can really easily dial it in any way you want it, from a clean boost to a heavy rock / punk distortion. I had been torn between this,a blues driver, and a tube screamer, but I have no doubt I made the right call with this one.

This is a very versatile pedal. Take some time to try different combinations of drive and volume with your amp. Can be used for everything from a clean boost to amazing distortion. This is THE go-to pedal on my board.

This pedal sounds great with all my amps. Favorite plugged into my 68 ri deluxe reverb. I found that HP setting sounds best with humbuckers and LP best with coil split or single coils

I finally bought one 2 years ago, wondered why I had waited so long. This is a truly great distortion pedal for rock playing - Led Zeppelin in a box! Use 18v power if you can, this does make a difference. Very simple design, every knob is useful. Works perfectly for anything from a clean boost to heavy classic rock distortion. Also pairs well with others - put a boost pedal or overdrive pedal in front to push it into Santana-style sustain and beyond. Can't recommend it highly enough, clarity, power and a very musical and useful overdrive.
