The Fulltone OCD.
It's internal clipping/distortion method is like the MXR Distortion+ in that it uses two reversed diodes that clip the signal to ground after the gain stage. But it's got some brilliant advances in the design that include a clever means of letting the signal level alter the bias. What this does it take the MXR+ to a whole new level of dynamic expression. Very responsive to picking dynamics. You can pick it clean or dirty just with touch, yet the harmonic content of the distortion is quite similar to the MXR+. It's voiced a bit differently, but only in a good way to my ears. If anyone has one, I would recommend trying it with the little toggle switch UP, and then set the rest to taste. I can totally imagine Jerry loving this particular pedal. It's more MXR sounding than Boss sounding, yet has its own unique dynamic response. And knowing that Jerry's true mastery was in his dynamic picking control, this really may have been right up his alley.

That was one of the new Fulltone pedals that came out right before I got out of gear retail, about 3 years ago, and I was a little bummed I hadn't gotten to properly test drive it. That, and the GT-500 was the other one... but you don't seem to see or hear about that one nearly as much.

I am not thinking of only Jerry tone for example just a good bluesy drive with thick tone. I would use it with my Carvin Humbucker as seen in my sig photo. And with my 16watt tube amp.
Any suggestions? Mods? Any kit building pitfalls to watch for?
I am gonna try to get back into playing my electric. I play my acoustic mostly right now. So this is going to be motivation to get back to the Carvin.
