    Just wondering if either OCD or Fulldrive 2 along with keeley comp and Barber EQ can get me in the tonal range of a "D" style amp

    I would love to buy a Zendrive in the future but at this time it is not feasible and am wondering what placement or settings have gotten people close

    Thanks!

    I like the OCD a lot and I don't like 'dumble' overdrive sounds. I'm not sure they are smooth enough although the eq will help with the taming of the highs and the midboosting.

    That was one of Michael Landau tunes called Rascal Balls. And yes! It's a freaking awesome song!

    Just listen to his soul man. The dynamics and timbre found in his fingers!! Geez!!

    What amp? OCD is a great little pedal but that's the furthest thing from what I'm thinking about with this pedal.

    Get a Zen, Klon, or Ehos if you want the lower gain Dumble ODS type sound.

    Meh, I respect the dude, but that sounds like a bunch of aimless noodling. Nice tones, but the point of a song isn't to display tone. So sorry for the audience.

    No need to be.
    Nobody was forced to go and they are free to leave anytime. Actually, by the cheering seens like audience was having a great time.

    Why is the Zendrive not feasible? It costs just a little more than the OCD. I would just buy the Zen and be done with it. No, I don't think an OCD will get you anywhere in Dumble territory.

    The point of the post was in fact, to display tones. ;) Yes, Robben was using a Super Reverb and a Zen Drive.

    Aimless Noodling? Wow :huh







    Also the Jetter Red is a good option for the RF type of tones.

    Yeah, as a previous poster said, a Zendrive is only a little more than an OCD. I think the Zen is $200 and an OCD is like $160 or something like that. I have both. Love both. Get the Zen if you really want the Dumble/Ford thing although the OCD is awesome too and very versatile. It's also cleans up with the guitar knob like nobody's business.

    I've gotten pretty darn close with my Menatone Shut Up And Drive when I didn't have my Howie on my board. Of course we all have to realize that Robben Ford can get Robben Ford tones out of a red knob Twin and a TS.

    Maybe he doesn't realize that a song has lyrics? -- and didn't recognize, what to others-- was an obvious structure, with that piece of music.:dunno

    Yea really. Landau is truly a class act. To each his own, I guess.

    i bought my zen for around $159 over a year ago direct from hermida. this is the best price for a dumble in a can as an ethos far surpasses it (but is indeed way more flexible).

    no the OCD will not get you dumble tones. i don't know what this pedal is really meant for if you had to tag a purpose for it....but it does marshall-esque tones very nicely through clean amplifiers.
