Fulltone OCD V2 Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal 

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

The Fulltone OCD was originally born in 2004. More or less immediately upon its release it came out, blinking, to unanimous praise and acclaim. Since that fateful day it has been through a fair few subtle tweaks and changes. Some of these new editions have been wrongly accused of being a version 2, version 3, version 4 and so on. That, however, has not been the case. Until now.

What Makes the OCD So Great? 

The OCD was the first pedal to use MOSFET clipping. MOSFETs (or metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistors to give them their full and catchy title) were at the time a new and revolutionary way of generating distortion. They provide a far more dynamic style of clipping which is much more reactive to ones playing style. Again, at the time, 90% of overdrive pedals on the market were effectively Tube Screamer copies and so the OCD stood apart as a fresh take on the tone and character of an overdrive.

With its fairly frequent updates and tweaks, it has been gradually refining its tonal character and remained as one of the go to overdrives currently on the market. It has power and sensitivity, aggression and musicality. It’s response to your playing, particularly your right hand technique, is really special and allows it to fully conform to the sound in your head. 

What’s New With Version Two?

All of the original tone and prowess of the original OCD is all present and correct in the new version 2. As mentioned, the design had been subtly tweaked over the years to hone and craft the sound closer to overdrive Nirvana. The recent changes though were enough to justify a V2, the main one being a new internal dip switch to select between the pedals native true bypass mode and Fulltone’s new enhanced bypass mode.

Enhanced Bypass

As mentioned, the most notable new edition in the new edition is the new addition of a redesigned buffer. True bypass is still the default mode and probably the preferred choice for most, however, if the need arises, you can now select what Fulltone are calling “enhanced bypass” using an internal dip-switch. This new option allows the pedal to sit comfortably and seamlessly at any point in any rig whilst preserving the pedals tone and the tone of all the pedals around it. It allows for ultimate flexibility for tone purists no matter how extravagant or conservative their pedal board may be.

The section explains in layman's terms how the new enhanced bypass works and gets quite technical. If you already know what true bypass and buffered switching are (or don’t care what they are) then I’d advise skipping to the next heading. Otherwise do feel free to read on!

Enhanced Bypass cont. (The Nerdy Bit)

True Bypass switching provides utmost cleanliness and clarity in your signal chain by virtue of the fact that, when the pedal is switched off, your signal path ignores the circuitry and passes through as if nothing were there. This is great as it keeps the tone of your guitar and amp clean, pure, and unaffected. The main snag, however, is that the longer the length of cable you have, the more tone you lose in capacitance. Adding a pedal in your chain adds capacitance and a pedal with true bypass switching, ignoring the circuitry when off, essentially then acts as a length of cable and thus it sucks some tone and volume out of your signal. By the time you’ve got 4 or 5 pedals in a row, each with true bypass, you’re losing quite a significant amount of volume and tone. Recently, that is becoming more and more of a problem because pedalboards are growing and a lot of the time these days pedals are run as part of a chain of ten or so others on a mammoth board. True Bypass switching on every pedal would lead to a fairly ungodly amount of signal loss.

To get around this issue of tone loss pedals began to be made with a buffered switching mode. A buffer revitalises your signal as it passes through your pedal even then the pedal is off. It lifts the level so that you don’t lose volume or tone on your signals journey from your guitar to the amp. The trouble with traditional buffers is that they tend to colour the tone of your tone and the tone of the other pedals on your board even whilst the pedal in question is turned off. Some buffers are better than others but they all invariably have some tonal imprint no matter how subtle. This presents a quandary. How to offer a buffered switch for modern boards which doesn’t negatively impact the tone of everything around it. To solve this issue, the good folks over at Fulltone have redesigned the idea of a buffer.

Fulltone, using patented witchcraft as far as I’m aware, has sidestepped all of this through various ingenious and magical means. As far as I can gather it involves things like re-configuring the FETs as Class-A, keeping them in phase, eye of newt, and other such things like that. Needless to say, this is a buffer which has been very carefully considered and as a result, it sounds and behaves brilliantly. Fulltone thinks that having the pedal in the chain off sounds even better than just going straight into the amp. That is just how good this buffer is.

New Input and Output Sections

The input section has been slightly redesigned to raise the impedance from 330K to 1 mega ohms. This essentially means that the pedal is now much more dynamic. This subtle change makes the pedal far more responsive to different types of pickups. Whether you confront it with a humbucker or a single coil, it’ll be lively and alert and dynamic.

The output section has also been redesigned. This new output buffer has been tweaked to help to isolate itself from the pedals around it. This ensures that the pedal performs in the perfect manner no matter where it is placed on your pedalboard and what pedals sit next to it as its neighbours. 

Controls

The OCD makes it very easy to dial in your perfect overdrive tone. All of the controls are powerful, dynamic, and reactive. The drive control dictates the amount of gain present. The volume controls the master output level, and the tone sweeps the EQ from a warmer, grungier sound all the way to glistening clarity. The only other control to mention is the HP/LP switch at the top of the pedal. This switch allows you to choose between HP (high-pass) and LP (low-pass) filters respectively. These filters will help to curtail the high or low frequencies with a powerful tonal scoop to help the pedal to play nicely with any guitar or pickup type it might well come into contact with.

The Best Selling Boutique Overdrive of All Time

The OCD by Fulltone is one of those pedals which serves as the yardstick for all others. It stepped outside of the box back in 2004 and created it’s own lane which it has led ever since. If you’re in the market for a really high quality, dynamic, versatile overdrive pedal, this might just be the one for you.
