Okay, WTF. There are two different ones on my local CG listed for $350.00 each.

Somehow, him announcing he's going out of business has increased the value of the mass produced, 400,000 variants in circulation?

No.
 
I have only owned clones. And I love them. I also really dig the OCD in the HX stuff. The Clyde wah was AWESOME. I guess I picked the wrong time to feel like trying the real thing :|
 
i dunno. i just picked an old one (version 2.something) for $122 or so on the fulltone site so...
 
People are crazy.
Had an OCD in my board for a long time, was perfect with the jtm45 I had at the time.
 
I heard about Fulltone closing the day before it spread across the internet and I immediately bought an OCD V2 and a ‘70 Fuzz for $90 a piece. Every time I look at them I think “There’s another Partscaster sitting in pedal form….”

Money is such an arbitrary construct to me that I have a hard time finding any kind of baseline for good/bad in the context of selling used items. There’s a huge part of me that says “If someone wants to pay a stupid amount of money for something, who am I to stop them?” while the altruist in me thinks “It’s quite sh*tty this happens because inevitably, someone with far less access to cash won’t be able to participate.”

Especially in the context of music gear; someone adds some NKT275’s to a fuzz pedal and bam, the price is $500+, or the JHS Show highlights an old, sh*tty Digitech pedal no one ever cared about and all of a sudden they skyrocket from $35 used to $350 used. It’s all arbitrary. I wrestle with “Do I cash in on something so meaningless as a guitar pedal?” and “Does the ripple effect of me cashing in on this cause issues in other areas?”

I agree with you but I also believe that there are so many OCD out there that I don't think they will ever sell for big money, not in the near future at least.
An OCD is not a klon, doesn't have that kind of aura, imho.

Things might be different for less popular Fulltone pedals.

Yeah, I think it’s all just that initial idea of “These aren’t going to be made anymore, let’s see how far we can push this!”

I think the most I’ve seen one actually sell for was $275 for a V1 and $250 for a V2.

And if Mike Fuller opens shop in Nashville and starts making them again, I wouldn’t be surprised to see yet another price hike with the originals.
 
Depends on how you’re using it. The OCD is the anti TS-SD1 if running it max level/no gain, into a high gain amp. Pushes the amp without the massive low end roll off.

I don’t like most pedal distortion generally, but in terms of using OD’s to push what you’ve already got going, the OCD is my favorite. Amp on steroids.
 
Here's a used Fulltone I just ran across. Clips I listened to posted at my other spot sounded great. For this price; they better :whistle
Fulltone Hi-Mu
 
Tbh (and without any regard to Mike's shenanigans) craftsmanship is great - but I never got along with the OCD's sounds and response.

I borrowed V1 and V2 variants at some point, both seemed "lifeless" to my ears/hands. Just not my cup of tea, my fav. overdrives are Klones and the SD-1.
 
I used mine for a while last night, this thing works with so many different amps. If you toss it in front of an older Marshall model you can pretty much turn them all into a boosted JCM800/modded Marshall with that thing.

This thing could easily be my bail-out pedal I keep in a bag so no matter where I showed up, I could get any amp to work with me as it’d give me just enough dirt to hide my sh*tty playing.

I had and ocd (V4) in my board for quite long time and used it with different amps
a Jtm45 (perfect match),
a Splawn Nitro (perfect match),
an Enlg powerball 2 (this one didn't really needed an ocd in front)
and a marshall jubilee (very good but I ended up using a different pedal - fulltone fat boost 2)

Is a desert island pedal for me.

I gotta try it with the Splawn!!! That's one of my favorite amps in the AxeFX, I'm actually tracking (trying to) a solo right now with it.
 
I know a guy who was a session player in NYC and he always took one with him so he’d always have a reliable base tone when he didn’t know what the backline was going to look like.

I had a few versions and always liked it, but there’s other stuff out there I liked better. I wouldn’t pay $300 for one
 
I couldn't jive with the do or die approach of the HP/LP switch. One way was too thick/dark,
and the other was too thin/bright.

I am a live and die with the SD-1 kind of guy, though.
