Fulltone OCD V2
The Fulltone OCD V2 has received many slight tweaks over the last 12 years, often incorrectly identified as “version 2, Version 3, V4, etc.” In reality there has always been only one version…Version 1, with very slight variations after that making them V1.1 through V1.7. On 6/15/2017 Fulltone released a very new OCD, different enough that it warrants a V2 designation. The version 2 OCD featuresnew uprgades, such as a new output buffer, a new Class A configured discrete 2N5457 JFET input section, and a Internal switch to choose between ”Enhanced Bypass TM” & True-Bypass.These stages added to the circuit changed the OCD, there’s no doubt, but it changed for the better.
Sonic changes to OCD V2
NEW FEATURE output buffer (when pedal is turned on in True-Bypass mode, or always when in Enhanced Bypass mode) which eliminates it from being influenced by effects that came after it. Translation, your sound remains consistent regardless of placement in today’s more complex signal-chains, loopers, and pedalboards. This buffer also had a positive effect on the sound, it reduced loading on the pedal’s hard-clipping stage, allowing more sustain of both the sound and the overtones.
NEW FEATURE Class A configured discrete 2N5457 JFET input section, raising the input impedance to 1 mega ohms (previously 330K) and increasing the dynamics…resulting in significantly better interaction with both single coil and humbuckers.
NEW FEATURE Internal switch to choose between ”Enhanced Bypass TM” & True-Bypass, and with no popping sound in either mode. No other company offers EB…I invented it.
