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.

Perfect Lead Boost

If you have an amp that has 2 channels and you like playing on channe 2, buy this pedal for a volume boost for your solos. If you have more channels, you can use this pedal as a lead boost on any channel. Simply turn the level as high as it will go & turn the drive all the way down. Put your tone at half way & you have a lead boost that doesn't affect your tone & gives you at least a 2db boost on your volume. This will help your lead solo cut through your band. Perfect boost pedal!

Best od/distortion pedal

OCD is the best dirt box I've ever had. I run it at 18 volts right after a fulltone fulldrive 2 also at 18 volts. They stack well together. I've tried this setup with a mesa mark v, fender blues deluxe, Marshall, peavey valveking. Using a strat, les paul, prs, and it works great with all of the above. I haven't found another dirt pedal, or od/dirt pedal combo that is this universal until now. And Aeric Brenner is the go-to-guy at sweetwater for excellent advice and courteous service.

OCD pedal the best sound for me

I typically go out and play a blues based style some crunchy some more mellow on the soulful side. I bought a Fender Deville amp but the thing is too good really a stage amp. I needed a sound that wouldn't peel the paint off the joints I play so I thought get another TubeScresmer. But in investigating what is out there I went with the Fulltone OCD. Get one it will do the job.

Exactly what I was after...

Sweet, crunchy gain without sounding trashy. The tonal options cover quite a bit of ground, and the gain is usable through the entire range of the knob. Excellent as a standalone overdrive or distortion and for boosting a crunchy amp.

Just what I needed

The OCD is the perfect pedal for anyone looking to add just a little bit of crunch to your tone. I never go to a gig without it. What I like most about this pedal is that it adds just the right amount of overdrive given how much signal you put through it and how hard you are playing, allowing you to adjust from clean to crunch with both your technique and your guitar's volume knob. It adapts to you! I would not recommend it as your one and only lead pedal, but for anyone looking to add a little bite or get a good blues lead sound this pedal is absolutely magnificent! I am very happy with the OCD.
