I've only played the Fulltone OCD. What else should I try?
The OCD definitely works great both as a low-gain and high-gain OD. I would recommend the Barber LTD or Timmy for low-gain applications. Timmy wins out for transparency, but there's something really warm about the Barber that I love. There are 3 versions of the Barber LTD (Black, Silver, and SR) so you can buy the one that best complements your amp. You can also buy the mod board that gives you even more tonal control. I would highly recommend either of these pedals.
How would you compare the Barber with the OCD, are they similar? Is it that the OCD has more high gain output?
If I were gonna try a low gain pedal it would be the Retro Sonic 808. They make great products.
the Honey Bee. It really has an unique blend of warmth, vintageness, complexity, friendship, eloquency, team spirit and humbleness without being self effacing...
There's this really great OD on the market called the "TGP Search Function."
I have both on my board right now, and the OCD definitely has more gain on tap. I have the black v.2 LTD, which gives me just a touch of mids that works perfectly with my mid-scooped blackface Fender. IMO, the OCD is more touch-sensitive and gives you more of that cranked marshall sound loaded with harmonic content, while the Barber LTD gives you a smoother overdrive that sounds more like an amp being pushed. I use my Barber LTD for most of my low-gain rhythm parts/chordal work and then turn on the OCD for leads and/or more rockin' parts.
does it filter out asshole responses?
Yeah that was a pretty stupid response. RDM should be quarantined and everytime he posts a question we should respond in the same manner. Hehehehehe. :BEER
Pedalworx Cactus Crunch!
Yes it does actually.
Go for it. I could care less. You see though...I use the search function everytime before I post anything. There's a lot of info to go through here if people stopped being lazy for 15 minutes.
Tough call between the Ulbrick 12AXE and Tim/Timmy. The Tim's got more tonal control, but the Ulbrick is such a juicy overdrive.
Analogman King of Tone, near the king of the hill if not the king
Yet you still get caught up in threads like this, which it seems like you are suggesting are unnecessary. My thread was "Whats your favorite low gain overdrive?" Its pretty clear as to what I was asking. Why did you even bother opening it up then?
Barber LTD & Timmy for me.
