NOBELS ODR-1 Green Overdrive

For over 25 years the Nobels ODR-1 has been called, “The first choice of studio guitarists in Nashville.” Jerry Donahue of the Hellecasters calls it „the best overdrive on the market.“
Many players around the world have discovered the wide dynamic range and tone of the ODR-1. Could the ODR-1 be one of the best kept tone secrets?

Now, this legendary guitar effect had been re-issued with its genuine circuitry in its original green colour at an affordable price.

The Nobels ODR-1 delivers natural, non-compressed tube-amp style overdrive that is versatile and amp-like. Create crunchy rock and blues sounds or extra boost for soloing without smothering the natural character of your guitar’s tone.

The Spectrum control optimizes tones from single coil chime to powerful humbucker rock. When adjusting the Spectrum control up or down the circuit ensures you have plenty of clarity and full dynamic range.

Users of the ODR-1 include Tommy Emmanuel, Tim Pierce, John Shanks, John Jorgensen, Carl Verheyen, Robbie McIntosh, Jerry Donahue, plus many others.

The ODR-1 features a solid metal chassis, a top loading battery compartment, and Nobel’s Remote Control Jack switching system for special professional setups.
