Fulltone — Amazing sound and quality!

The Fulltone Obsessive Compulsive Drive is an overdrive pedal that responds to picking dynamics and touch sensitivity - not to mention enhancing beautiful harmonics. It also reacts beautifully to big fat chords and fares well with leads and solos. Roll back the guitar's volume and you've got a new palette of sounds to play with. The best thing about the Obsessive Compulsive Drive is your guitar will still sound like your guitar - just a bit better! You obsess over your tone; now you can have Obsessive Compulsive Drive too!

Fulltone Obsessive Compulsive Drive at a Glance:
  • Long-lasting pots
  • Who uses Fulltone?

Long-lasting pots
Fulltone's custom-made brass-shaft pots are among the strongest and smoothest feeling pots available. These amazing pots are mounted to the interior PCB board via a proprietary "thru-PCB" method rather than having the pot be secured by the pot terminals, drastically reducing pot-related failure. This method keeps Fulltone pedals up and running for the duration of your playing days. Plus, this eliminates the need for a bunch of jumper wires, keeping your tone as pure as humanly possible.

Who uses Fulltone?
The list of Fulltone fans reads like a who's who of guitar heroes. Both Ron Wood and Keith Richards have Fulltone gear in their touring rigs, as does Nigel Tufnel from the legendary British metal band Spinal Tap, and Boston bad-boys Joe Perry and Tom Hamilton. Punk/rockabilly mainstay Reverend Horton Heat is a Fulltone convert. Other notable Fulltone users include Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard, Jack Bruce of Cream, perennial alt rocker Lou Reed, and Tom Petty along with Heartbreaker Mike Campbell.

Fulltone Obsessive Compulsive Drive Features:
  • Great overdrive tones
  • Huge palette of available sounds
  • Switchable hi- and lo-peak gain settings

Why buy Fulltone?
Fulltone was founded in 1991 by session guitarist, composer, performer, and electronic tinkerer Michael Fuller. His pedals were born out of love for music and tone, as well as the frustration at the inconsistencies and the often fragile nature of vintage pedals. Fulltone pedals are 100% handmade in Southern California using the finest components, including custom-made 22-gauge copper wire with no tin coating, Fulltone-designed 3PDT switches, and custom-made brass shaft pots, mounted using Fulltone's proprietary "thru-PCB" method. The end result: Fulltone pedals are built to last and sound amazing.

No words.. I'm OCD about this pedal

I have been searching for the sound that this little box is capable of dishing out for a very long time. A lot of reviews state that the V4 is a total let down, but I can assure you that this box is nothing but sheer delight. A lot of people say it's thin, it's not, scooped, it's not, it's transparent as glass and it doesn't color my sound at all.Why would Mike Fuller degrade an Iconic pedal, so IMHO, as he mentions, he improved it with each version and now he's satisfied with the final version and so am I :) Also using 18V is a must if you're looking for more headroom and it has a total different feel and sonic character. I have a V3 clone which is the closest I can get to the actual V3 (I'm from South Africa) and although it is a different sound, I actually prefer this version, although I cannot say if my clone is on par with an actual V3. The build quality of this unit is superb, the knobs, the switch, the enclosure, everything is just ROCK SOLID, so if you're back and forth about this pedal, stop and pull the trigger, you won't be disappointed, unless you're just not into this type of sound.

one of the best drive pedals ever!

The Fulltone OCD pedal is by far one of the best preamp/boost/overdrive pedals I use. I find that if you use it in line with another drive pedal you can and will achieve The Eric Johnson dirty sound with ease! I place it before my BK Butler Tube Driver and you can dial in boost to thick rich overdrive that sustains for days! This is one of my very favorite pedals for that singing drive sound. Works great for thickening single coil pickup's. plays well with other pedals and amps. I have owned this pedal for years now and never had a single problem with it. tough as a Tank! If I lost this pedal I would not hesitate to buy another one ASAP.

Yup, lives up to reputation

This is the only dirt pedal I have. Sounds awesome with every amp and guitar combination I've tried. Just buy one.

Versatile Overdrive

I have been using the OCD as my main distortion sound since I got it a few weeks ago.Tonight i tried it as a clean boost and was floored by the rich tone.Great pedal with a variety of sounds and built like a tank(this pedal is SOLID).Good job!

Great overdrive

The Fulltone overdrive is very versatile. You can go from mild crunch for rythem to a full blown fuzz for lead. I use it in combination with a Rat-2 distortion pedal. When I blend them together, with a TC electronics Flash Back delay, I can get a pretty convincing. David Gilmour tone. I would recommend this pedal for anyone.
