    I have it. It is a substantial improvement on the stock version. I find myself taking my Tim and Zen out more these days

    I actually think I preferred mine stock. The mod made it smoother, taking away some of the character. Couldn't find a use for it, sold it. I like my OCD quite well, depending on which amp and how cranked, if that helps. I'd rather hear output tubes working, then maybe add a pedal.

    It was a nice OD...too transparent for me though. I like my modded SD-1's better. A bit more character.

    I had a Keeley BD and it wasn't for me. Sounded too scouped to me. Would not cut thru the mix. Traded it back to my local Keeley dealer and got a Keeley TS808 true bypass. 100 times better for me. If you are looking for a TS style, you got to check the 808 out. Not cheap, but worth it.

    the OD's I currently use are a cot50, a fish factory, and a howie, the ts sounds for me are covered with the fish factory, I'm actually looking for something transparent and bluesy..
