    I just picked up an ocd and it sounds a lil' too dark on the lp setting and when using a fatboost after it, it sounds too bright. Is this normal and does anyone have any suggestions?

    Adjust the tone knob on the Fatboost (v.1, the gray box). I've never had anything sound overly bright when I kick it on. LP setting is a bit dark, but that's what I like about it. Try HP mode, which gives a bit more upper chime.

    If I am using LP mode the only way I can get it to sound the way I want and not too dark it is to crank the volume on it anywhere above 2 o'clock.

    Or try running on LP at 12 or 18volts. I use the HP setting, plenty of brightness.

    If you have a chance, try a Barber BarbEQ after it. I found that I didn't like it flat (by itself) as much, but loved it with a Barb EQ. I find it to be very (too?) flat in LP, but too edgy in HP. So, the EQ lets me tweak the mids until it's right for the amp - Tweeds I take a little out, Blackfaces I add a little. Works great and not too $$$...

    it might be something to do with buffer/impedance?

    I started using a carbon copy delay after my OCD and the OCD was just really dark unless I turn on the carbon copy. With the delay on, the OCD sounds fine and brightened up a lot.

    if I replace the carbon copy with my Echo Park (which has a buffer) the OCD sounds consistent whether or not the delay is on.
