For the record, the version 2.0 finally fix the impedance problem with other pedals, that added with the confusion of the different versions always held me back from the OCD.
Finally I tried a 2.0 and liked A LOT. With the tone knob just before noon is perfect for me, no crazy mids nor harshness.
Et voilà... (from Fulltone facebook page)
"The lads at "That Pedal Show" just posted a lengthy comparison video between a V1 OCD and a new V2 and Cs-Ge. Aside from the ridiculous futility of attempting to set the knobs the same, all sounded good, go figure.
The reason you can't set the knobs...
I have the internal trimpot at about 60-70% and I think it is the sweet spot.
Increasing: the hiss get less noticeable but I lose definition, the sound is flabby. Still usable with single coils but too much gated with humbuckers
Diminishing : "cat in a heat" intensifies!
Anyway thank for...
Hello fuzz experts, recently I found an old '70 fuzz (blue big box) with a BC103 and BC114 (?!).
It sounds big and aggressive but always musical, best silicon fuzz I evertried, really enjoying it, but there is a thing that is driving me nuts. If I max out the fuzz starts to hiss and whistle.
Same problem here, I recently tested my RAT2 with my LP into a '73 Bassman 100.
Same cables and power supply and a bunch of other distortion pedals (Hot Cake, distortron, tube Screamer and... HM-2), the RAT was the only one squealing with the gain from 11 o'clock.
The back cover is not original...
I'm considering a 2 band eq overdrive for low/medium gain to manage (better) different guitars .
I used to have a Timmy but I sold it in a period of downsizing (anyway I always thought it was it a little weak, but very versatile).
Benson Preamp, Westwood, and Timmy are pretty hard to find here...
