    you GOT to try this set-up.
    first one as a gain boost - on hp mode, with very low drive and high volume,
    seconed one - on lp mode with volume as desired and low gain.
    the harmonies you get with this setup are amazing!

    I could imagine that would sound good. The OCD and BoR sound great in a similar setup.

    I stack an OCD and a Zendrive and get a great sound. The Zen seems to be the only pedal that will work with the OCD in my experience.

    katarzis,

    haven't had the opportunity to try 2 OCDs. To my ears an OCD has a lot of presence. So I would think cascading 2 would make one's tone a bit harsh, so your feedback is good to know. Personally I like to cascade a bright od with a warm od (e.g a TS into a RAT) and have a lot of options presence-wise....


    John B,

    do you have both pedals on low gain? Care to share your settings and application? Thanks!

    I usually use my OCD with Tone and Vol at 10-11 o'clock, and Gain at 1-2 o'clock; LP mode with humbuckers, HP mode with single coils... Dunno yet how to fit in my Zendrive into this scenario for classic rock and blues.

    Thanks for sharing, zwieback. I'll try your settings tonight.

    I don't see myself getting a 2nd OCD, but I'd like to try to make mine work well with other stuff I have like the Vox Cooltron OTTB, MI Audio Blues Pro and an FD2 Mosfet...
