I've gone thru a whole lot of drive pedals over the years: DiCosimo 800RB; Pike Vulcan; Darkglass; EHX; MXR; Boss... The list goes on. All of them were great in their own way but none left me really satisfied. I always found myself tweaking them while on stage (a bad look, if you ask me), or spending an inordinate amount of time at home or in rehearsal trying to find a sound that I was happy with. A couple of weeks ago, I did a show about 5 hours away from my hometown and went into a music store. There, I found a Fulltone OCD for about $80 USD and decided to give it a shot, thinking it would be a good addition to my guitar rig, as I often work as a guitarist as well. It sounded great on the guitar in the store and I figured I'd plug in a bass just for poops and giggles to see what it sounds like and I found myself surprised by how good it sounded! So I bought it and since I had two shows (as a bassist) at that venue that weekend, I decided to put it on the board for the second one and I'll tell you what - I was blown away! I don't know why folks sometimes say that this guy sucks low end out... With my rig, it definitely does not. I leave the switch on the LP setting, put the drive at around 11 o'clock and the tone at 12:30 and she screams like a banshee whilst still sounding like a proper bass. I've used it on five performances so far and man am I impressed! If you've been avoiding this pedal, I suggest giving it a proper go. It's cheap, cheerful, and really very good. That is all.
