    No matter what I do I can't get this OD to sound decent in front of my 6505mh. I know it's and OCD clone, and that's a lot of peoples weapon of choice for boost.

    Settings:
    Drive 0
    Volume all the way up
    tone at 12 o clock
    I've tried high pass and low pass too.

    Thanks!

    What are the amp settings? What are you hoping to change from just the amp alone?

    Try setting the amp to edge of breakup, going to HP tone at noon and turning the drive way up.

    Here's my setup:
    Interceptor 828 with 808's (contributing to the problem, I know)

    My pedal chain: guitar>strobe tuner>dr swamp>hustle drive, I also have a HD500X in the effects loop.

    Amp settings:eq at 12 o clock, resonance and presence at 12 o clock, gain at 1 o clock.

    I'll try that. It's easy with the 1 and 5 watt mode. Thanks Budda Buddy!

    It's definitely much better, but it isn't where I'd like it to be. There's not enough saturation for me. It probably just isn't the pedal for me. I cam from using a ts-9 clone and am currently using a t rex dr swamp,

    OCD + 5150 My settings where something like this:

    OCD = HP Mode, Drive just cracked, like 7-8 o’clock, Volume almost maxed but not 4-5 oclock, Tone same setting as Volume

    5150 Red channel (not o’clock, numbers on dial)= Low 6-7, Mid 5, High 6-7, Pre 2.5-3, Res and Pres are cab dependent 5-7 res 5-8.5 pres, post always loud




    OCD in LP stacks well with a Tube Screamer, our the TS right after your guitar and OCD after, turn the tone to 12 o’clock
