    Has anybody gotten this mod? How is it? Although the OCD is a great box it leaves a little to be desired to me. what does the JHS do to it, I read that it changes the tone stack a bit and takes some harshness off, fills in the bass a bit. Anybody notice a big difference in how they use it?

    Any other mods for an OCD out there?

    That description sounds like a simple input cap change. You could probably do that.

    You can remove and jumper the 1N34A Germanium diode above C1 to tame some of the "fizz" as the gain is increased.

    I haven't tried one but there are a couple demos on YouTube:





    Most people agree that the original sounds better, so I wouldn't bother.

    In that video I like the stock one more. I wonder if it's more a better feeling with the mod.
