  1. Hey guys. So I've sworn by it, but I'm letting the OCD go. Why? I want/need other things. Simple as that.

    I have no pictures currently, but I assure you the pedal is in good condition. I know that right now one of the side screws is missing (clearly doesn't affect the sound, and it still feels sturdy), but I'm going to look around our studio on Sunday to see if I set it somewhere and forgot about it. Otherwise the pedal is all good, and I can ship it in the original box with everything it came with.

    I'll go ahead and put the price at $125 shipped.

    Trades are possible, but I'm strictly limiting trades to these options:

    -Original or big box reissue RAT
    -Fulltone FatBoost v1
    -Matched quad of functioning KT88 tubes

    Thanks for looking.

    What pedals would you compare it to, in terms of what the dirt/grit sounds like?
  3. Depends on the mode. In LP mode it can get pretty transparent and serve as a pretty nice low gain boost, which I have never been picky about. Most clean boosts are identical to my ears.

    The HP mode adds more top end and midrange clarity, and leaves it reminiscent of a Tubescreamer in general EQ response, but with slightly better bass response. As far as gain structure I would say it does what they advertise pretty well: It sounds like a cranked amp. Comparisons to the Zvex Box of Rock and similar Marshall emulators would not be unfounded. Fulltone makes a big deal about a the richness of the pedal's even order harmonics, but to be perfectly honest this terminology gets lost when translated to bass for me. Yeah, I can hear the even order harmonics when you sustain an E major chord on a Les Paul with the pedal cranked, but on bass I don't personally find it to be a huge selling point for any gain pedal. You, however, might, so I figure I should mention it.

    I will say though, I have yet to play a pedal that responded this well to playing dynamics.

    I love mine. They sound beautiful. hard to explain but I everything that bugged me about my Fulltone Bassdrive is corrected with the OCD while still retaining a similar tone. Imagine a Bassdrive will a much better tone control, more low end and half the size.

    So how would you campare this to the OD of the fulltone bassdrive?
  7. Similar-ish, but with more gain on tap, WAY more dynamic capabilities, (slightly) less mids, more bass.
