Any thoughts on these two?
I thought it was verified on FSB that the Oddfellow was the same schematic with a couple of tweaks. There is definitely a gray area to all of this. I think people are more inclined to give a pass to Oddfellow, since the Caveman was reasonably priced.
This ought to be good.
Personally, I don't get all the hype surrounding the OCD. Unfortunately it has so many fanboiz that they immediately run to its defense if something "close" to it shows up around here. Those links are good for a laugh but don't take them seriously. I've actually played both and the Caveman rips the OCD a new one. Period. Letting my ears decide... it hasn't left my board in several months. Unmatched, imo. But I'm not taken seriously here so decide for yourself. They can be had pretty cheap right now.
OCD + A Few Minor Tweaks + Uncontrollable Boost + $50 = Caveman Drive
Someone please buy OCD, Caveman Drive, Freakish Blues, Joyo and mooer clones and run a blind test =)
My friend bought into the hype thinking that the Caveman had that mystical boutique mojo from some guys basement and that it was a unique overdrive that "doesn't sound like anything else". He got one and ranted and raved about it ad nauseum and wouldn't stop telling me about the amazingly unique tone and "fat, chewy" overdrive texture. When it was discovered that it was an OCD clone, he claimed the Caveman had a "sweetness and warmth" to the tone that the OCD lacked. I did a blind test with him with an OCD he already had. He couldn't tell the difference between the two when he wasn't looking at them, but he STILL claims the Caveman sounds better after we did the comparison. I've concluded that my friend is a retard.
