And what do you use it for? Light overdrive, always on, soloing? I'm curious, since I've bought a few overdrive pedals lately, after seeing great video-demoes of them, and I end up with pedals that I really like for kinda dirty rhythm playing, but when it comes to lead, I always end up just stepping on the OCD, but i'm not really sure that's the sound I really dig (or maybe I haven't dialed it in just right)I think everyone should have one in their arsenal. Personally I was curious and didn't want to spend too much to try it out so just went with a standard ODR-1 with bass cut and it’s great. It’s one of the few dirt pedals I have that I find easy to dial in regardless of amp. At this point I don’t see the need to replace it or spend anything on “improved” versions.
So I'm curious just what it is an ODR-1 or the likes really excel at? I mean, so many people are using their tube screamer or their Klon-type pedals with the gain set really low, to hit the front of the amp just a bit, but I'm not really looking for that. So what role do you think the ODR-1 really plays on the board?
