Notes
Hello lads and lasses…the kind folks at Nobels were kind enough to send me a 30th anniversary ODR-1 Overdrive pedal to try out, so I thought I would give it a swing.
Tell me what you think.

I realize this subject matter has been perhaps flogged on a bit too much in the past, but I still get a million questions regarding ODR-1s, so there must still be people wondering...so here we are,

The sweet lads at Nobels asked me for a short quote so I will say this:
“I am extremely proud to be a long time card carrying member of the Nobels family, the finest overdrive pedals ever made”
