They sort of work in different ways. Both good but for me Diamond is #1. Hopefully get to try a Free The Tone Silky Comp one day.

It’s the “do everything” board but it still needs a good envelope filter - I have my eye out for a 3 Leaf Proton but they are stupid money.

Not convinced on the OC2 hype myself, probably the whammy does enough of my octave needs. Also wishing I had the big Darkglass sound in a smaller box. That one is overkill for an irregular Tool cover band gig…

Lovely pedal but not using. Mint.

$280 including postage if anyone wants a go.
Yes, I bought it at this price - cheap as chups!

How does the OC-2 go before Compression? Did you sell your OC-5?

There’s an OC-2, OC-3 and OC-5 all on trade me this week

Rain days aren’t helpful for my wallet but good for the Bass Soul.

I’m thinking another board as I don’t want to get rid of any pedals.

Haven't tried that order as I've always run a compressor first...I'll give it a go. OC5 has gone, though I regret it!

I think I preferred Octave before Compression so another sound reason to have 2 or 3 compressors!

@Hercules

The Proton Filter works better with a Compressor before it

There’s two on Reverb now for approximately $640 NZD that’s bonkers coin

Had a successful Fuzz Tone Friday night. Normally I don’t bother with Fuzz live.

I’m thinking flatwound strings and a light plectrum help here. (YMMV)
