  • If you've ever owned a great amp and if you have a place where you can crank it up LOUD, then you understand... Smack a power chord and you not only hear the fundamental notes...but you'll hear 4, 5, even 6 additional overtones ringing into a feedback... notes that you can whistle if your ear is good enough! Think Zep's "Ocean," "Custard Pie," Classic tones including James Gang, the Beatles, AC/DC, FREE., etc. Back off the guitar's volume and there are other great sounds at your fingertips... Clean, spanky sounds, with all the highs and lows still intact. A Tele still sounds like a Tele, a Les Paul remains a Les Paul. Until now, pedals have had a hard time holding a candle to what a great amp could do. You not only lose all the touch sensitivity but forget about those complex Harmonics. You'll find no need to compromise using the Fulltone OCD V2.

    The OCD has received many slight tweaks over the last 12 years, often incorrectly identified as “Version 2, Version 3, V4, etc.” In reality, there has always been only one version…Version 1, with very slight variations after that making them V1.1 through V1.7. On 6/15/2017 Fulltone has released a very new OCD, different enough that it warrants the V2 designation. Not a subtle change when turned on…not a subtle change when turned off (in E.B. mode).

    The stages added to the circuit changed the OCD, there’s no doubt, but it changed for the better. Words some people used to use to describe the OCD: “brash,”--“scooped sounding,”--“Bassy,”--“lacks sustain,”-- “too affected by other pedals”….NO LONGER APPLY.

    IN & OUT jacks are placed exactly at the halfway point of the left & right sides on V2, whereas with all previous versions the jacks were located more towards the bottom.

    The OCD V2 has slightly smaller “OCD” and “Fulltone” logos, along with “Built in the USA” under the Fulltone logo. All Fulltone products are built in the USA, the V2 now says it. Make no mistake, nothing Fulltone is made outside the USA, but please know ALL resistors, knobs, pots, capacitors, switches, etc. are made overseas! And because of that, legally you have to say "Built in USA" instead of "Made in USA."

  • Features

      • Volume Knob: Controls the amount of signal that exits the pedal. The OCD has about 20dB of available gain (more in HP mode) so don’t be surprised if you end up running the Volume control at around 9 o’clock to get unity gain.
      • Drive Knob: Turn this Clockwise (CW) for more distortion, keep below 10 0‘clock for cleaner sounds and for boosting your amp’s input without changing your basic tone
      • Tone Knob: This knob only affects the high frequencies, you’ll find that 12 o’clock position is very much neutral, turn it CCW (counter clockwise) to 10 o’clock or so for smoother high-gain lead sounds (with Drive knob higher than 12 o’clock) or turn it clockwise for more cut, and a less compressed feel.
      • Fulltone 3PDT footswitch: is considered by Fulltone to be the best switch available anywhere in the world. It is Fulltone designed & manufactured.
      • Output Buffer (when pedal is turned on in True-Bypass mode, or always when in Enhanced Bypass mode) which eliminates it from being influenced by 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.
      • 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.
      • Internal switch to choose between ”Enhanced Bypass TM” & True-Bypass, and with no popping sound in either mode. No other company offers EB… Fulltone invented it.
      • Input Impedance = 1 mega ohm
      • Output Impedance = 10k ohms (when pedal is switched ON and also when switched OFF while employing Enhanced BypassTM)
      • Current draw = approximately 8 milliamps
      • Runs on a 9 volt battery (included) or on any voltage between 9 and 18 Volts DC as long as the adapter is (standard) 2.1mm x 5.5mm barrel plug with “Negative to Center Pin” configuration.
