  • Fulltone OCD vs. Boss BD-2 Blues Driver

    I need an overdrive and am considering these pedals. Which one do you think is the best for the sound, value, etc.?

    The OCD is a killer OD. Best sound for money would be the Boss OD-3. I can get OCD type tones from it. Used they are around $45. Best OD pedal Boss makes IMHO.

      I think the OCD blows away the blues driver. It is a terrific OD. If you can afford it I would definitely go with the Fulltone.

        Does the pedal clean up well with the guitar's volume turned down?

            I have the OCD, and really like the pedal. I haven't tried a BD, but the times I've heard it, I liked it's tones. Not sure they do the same sound, though.

            Boss pedals aren't bad, although I would use looper bypass boxes if you had more than two of them.

            Actually, the majority of my pedalboard is Fulltone stuff. Great quality, true bypass, that's available from local stores.

                OCD for sure. Its really in a different league than the BD-2. In fact somebody did a comparison between teh Box of Rock the OCD a Shredmaster or Guv'nor or something like that and the OCD could get those Marshall in a box type sounds no problem even.

                The BD-2 is a great pedal for the money, and with mods it can be even better, but even then the OCD is what I would go with.

Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you.

                  Start your own thread about the crowther hot cake. This is about the OCD and BD-2.


                  Pfft, thread hijackers.

                      Now you're just believing the hype. Ive played the OCD and its a good pedal, but its not some new invention and personally, Id rather use a Tubescreamer style pedal.

                          I set my pedals and go. I use a volume pedal after the dirt pedals, so I don't do a lot of volume knob work to affect the distortion units. If I get to it, I will try it, but I am sure someone else works them this way and can comment.

                          The OCD takes boosting very well, from my Katana Clean boost and Barber LTD. So I know that one will clean up based on volume changes. I am not positive about OD-3.
