The Fulltone OCD pedal can be seen in the top row, third from the right, on Jonny's pedalboard. As a means to verify that this is Jonny's board, [here](http://images.equipboard.com/uploads/source/image/5222/big_2041.jpg) is another picture of it after a concert, covered in butterfly confetti. There are plenty of pictures of Coldplay covered in this confetti from stage during their 2012 tour, such as [this one](http://www.coldplay.com/livetransmissions/288_med_20120805000933.jpg).more

The 2nd pedal in Brian Fallon's simple pedalboard setup, after his Jim Dunlop British Invasion Wah, is the Fulltone OCD Obsessive Compulsive Drive Overdrive Guitar Effects Pedal, which his guitar tech says is set to a "really, really minimal drive to it, you can see it's just barely set, and that's just a little bit more drive." (19:29 into this rig rundown video).more
On Don Felder's website, he confirms his use of Fulltone's OCD overdrive pedal in [this Q & A](http://www.felderfans.com/guitar-q-a-with-don/3/): "'What specific pedals do you use for the effects on One of These Nights and Hotel California?' 'For 'Hotel' on stage I use a Boss stereo chorus, Boss echo and an OCD overdrive pedal on the six string neck. I use a boss echo and a leslie for the 12 string neck. The guitar is custom-wired with two output jacks so that when I switch necks it switches outputs to different amps.'"more

In [this interview](http://www.guitarplayer.com/artists/1013/robin-trowers-moody-blues/23663) with Guitar Player, Robin Trower says "The OCD had a good distortion but was a little trashy sounding, whereas the original FullDrive is very expensive sounding. But the FullDrive had a germanium chip that is hard to find and unreliable in heat and cold. We combined the OCD’s distortion with the original FullDrive’s rich tone."more
For Marsden, his desert-island effect has to be an Ernie Ball VP Jr Volume Pedal because he says it’s the most expressive tool under his control. When it comes to actual noisemakers on his board, he has a Fulltone OCD, an Electro-Harmonix Big Muff, Electro-Harmonix POG2, a Strymon El Capistan, a Boss DD-7 Digital Delay, an Electro-Harmonix Bass Soul Food that he sniped from bandmate Emma Richardson, an EHX Cathedral, and a Danelectro Reel Echo.

“I usually play with a more elaborate rig, but for SXSW I only brought a few pedals and carried them around in my backpack all week. I wanted to keep setup time to a minimum and reduce the weight of my gear as much as possible, as I'm usually carrying it all on my back from venue to venue during SXSW.” - Torres about her pedalboard.more

> **Tell us about your pedals** > >My pedalboard is always in a state of flux, but currently I’m using an Ernie Ball volume pedal for swells and a simple Boss DD-3 for delay. I also have a Boss TR-2 Tremolo pedal and a Boss OC-3 Super Octave pedal, and a Fulltone OCD distortion pedal. For weird sounds, I’ll sometimes use my Electro- Harmonix Harmonic Octave Generator.more
The Fulltone OCD-Obsessive Compulsive Drive-overdrive pedal packs classic OD tones into a compact pedal with simple, no-fuss operation. From heavy crunch rich with overtones and feedback to spanky cleans, the OCD delivers the sounds of a great tube amp, as sell as the same sensitivity and response to your playing style.
Along with standard Volume, Drive, and Tone controls, the OCD's HP/LP (High Peak/Low Peak) switch takes the pedal from a clean boost to manic, sustain-laden distortion. True bypass switching.
Bought this bad boy here about 1,5 month ago and I gotta say, it hasn't disappointed me yet! It's got so many options for any sound you could possibly dream of! Not to mention the pristine hand craftsmanship that's been put into this pedal. I would definitely recommend this for any guitarist (and maybe bassists too?) out there.
Awesome pedal! This pedal has a overdrive switch (low output) and a distortion switch (high output). With the low output switch, you can get a very good bluesy lead tone. But with the high output switch if you really crank it, the sound remains very tight without getting fuzzy. So it even sounds very good if you want to play metal or hard rock as well.
You'd have to be crazy not to want this diverse OD pedal on your pedalboard; the range of sounds it can achieve is incredible. This having been said, it may lose out to relative newcomers like the Black Arts Toneworks Black Forest, because it isn't necessarily that original: those looking for a signature tone may want to keep searching. Don't let me land on a sour note, though. This is a legendary pedal.
I use this while playing live at almost every show when it is too small of a venue to crank my deluxe to get tube overdrive and this thing sure does deliver. A cool trick i've been doing recently when using this with a my Peavey Vypr SS amp in order to get a great sounding feedback is to turn this pedal on in unison with another overdrive/distortion pedal that has been dimed and then point your guitar's pickups at your pedalboard. I personally use a ProCo rat for this
ive been needing a ds/od pedal for a while now and i was thinking about getting a ts9 and i tried it at a friends house and it was just too mellow for me and i figured i could get a similar sound with a compression pedal. from the reviews and the videos this seems pretty awesome.
This distortion is a perfectly rounded pedal for almost any use. Whether you want to use it as a solo driver or just to dirty up your tone, this pedal can do it all. Very reliable and easy to figure out. Lots of possibilities. Highly Recommend.
This one i use to get low gain drive sounds with a roar texture. Sorry, i cannot say to much things despite of its beatiful sound, and dynamic behavior. I just like it too much, but at same time, still looking around for other, to confirm its quality or even chage it some day. I must try j.Rockett Blue Note/Animal and Red Jasper too. I prefered it over Catalinbread DLS MKIII by far.
I have both the OCD and the Wampler Ecstasy on my pedal board. When I want high-intensity OD or want to get to that overdriven legato/continuous stream of notage territory, I hit this one ... or even hit them both. The Wampler seems to add a bit of bottom, but the heavy drive is coming from the OCD.
I love this pedal! I This was my first Fulltone pedal and I've really fallen in love with Fulltone since. This pedal is so versatile and sounds amazing! It's extremely amp like. The LP/HP pedal is what really makes a huge difference. The HP setting really enhances the mids and the LP setting is much more flat.
This pedal is good for about any guitar, the LP and HP switch is a great feature of the pedal which allows the pedal to have more of a range for its sound. The pedal is perfect for classic rock, grunge, and even Metal, like metallica
