    I bought an OCD about 2 months ago. Then immediately put it on my board for a test drive as my main drive pedal and ditched out the Muff'n.

    But today, I switched back to the Muff'n. I know it's huge and needs weird type of adapter to power but the sound is way more awesome than OCD.

    Now I'm telling you, am I too crazy?

    I haven't played an OCD, but I've really hated my English Muff'n.

    For me, I had to turn the treble almost off to get the harsh high end sound gone. The break up isn't bad, but the pedal is loud as hell, and has real farty bass.

    I might try switching tubes, but I'm not really digging it.

    i've had both, for one, the english muff'n is nowhere as durable and reliable as the ocd. The ocd to me sounded like the most uncompressed od i've every played. The english muff'n however broke down on me many times (i'm not repairing it anymore). Currently, the muff'n just stutters and the volume is eccentric. The size isn't helping at all in this aspect.
