    Two of the same OCD sound way different.

    I had the same experience with the one I bought during that time period. Got it new / direct from Fulltone. Muddy , dull , uninspiring - even with the treble cranked. Disappointing for sure. I ended up using an EHX Glove, which also cost me 50% less than the OCD.

    Former Fuzz Haters: What Fuzz Changed Your Mind?

    Years ago, I remember trying all sorts of distortion, overdrive, etc. I could never get that sound out of my head and into my amp. Then my brother says "try this" and gives me a Black Russian Muff, in a wooden box. It was like a crack in the ground had opened up, and pure heat was pouring out...

    If you could only keep one Lovepedal

    I had a half dozen Lovepedals in the past few years. But the one I liked best was the Monkey Fist Fuzz.

    Chorus… Genuinely useful or just genuine nostalgia?

    I own 18 Chorus pedals ( used to be more ). It's an essential item for me, both for nostalgia and creativity. I second the recommendation of the Seymour Duncan Catalina. It really is a cut above the crowd.

    Let's see your single row pedalboards...

    Hmm..I may use that idea. Set up a Nano Max with modulations, delay, & reverb. Then, use a Nano as an ever changing OD & Fuzz section, to be added at the front.

    Let's see your single row pedalboards...

    I configured many multi row pedalboards, and had the layout & wiring headaches to go with them. Then I tried a single row Pedlatrain Nano Max. I have three of them now, and will probably never go back to the multi row boards.

    Why do I own all these guitars??

    Heck, I have probably misplaced more guitars than that.

    Lessons Learned: 2021 Edition

    1. "Trying" to make cool gear work for you, is a waste of time/distraction. Use whatever sounds good to you. 2. I own a lot of guitars ("need to have one of everything"). Yet I grab my old, worn in Tele nearly every time. 3. I was routinely underwhelmed by overdrives, until I cranked up the...

    The 'Spend a $1000 (a Day?!?) on Pedals by 2022' Challenge

    Probably. Appliances these days are way too high tech. I remember the simpler times...

    If you had to limit yourself to a 3 pedal board

    Made this one recently, just to get a certain sound I was after.
