I use a bunch of always on ODs and boosts, they're probably my favourite type of pedal. I usually match the pedal to the amp: I love the Hotcake with Vox type amps, I either use a Z-vex super-hard-on or an Arc Effects Klone with Fender blackface amps and I like the Timmy with almost everything, I find the EQ on it really useful.

I sometimes use my Subdecay Liquid Sunshine in place of my Xotic SP compressor. It gives everything a tiny bit of grit and is wonderful with single coils and Vox amps.

for the last 3 years, my OCD has been on all the time. just a great sounding pedal through my rig, with any of my guitars.
What is your rig? I just got my 15 yr. old son a used OCD for Xmas and played it through my Vox AC15 and thought it sounded really good.

awesome! i run mine into a Fender Vibroverb. sounds great on both channels. with some chorus, a humbucker, a touch of delay, and the OCD cranked, i can get a pretty solid EVH tone too :D

OCD isn't visible in this other than a sliver sticking out from behind the wah.

I'm currently running a Fairfield Barbershop always on into a Hudson Broadcast that I kick on for gainier sound. Before the Barbershop I tried a bunch of pedals and always came back to my Blackstone Appliances Mosfet Overdrive as my always on low gain, but the Barbershop is giving the BAMO a run for it's money. Amp is a high headroom super clean Vibroverb clone.
