The Nobels ODR-1 is not another green overdrive clone. In fact, it sounds nothing like the ubiquitous green stompbox. A cult classic among Nashville session players, the ODR-1 is a natural-sounding dirt box that fits sonically somewhere between the mythical transparent overdrive and the aforementioned mid-forward green pedal. This pedal boasts a 3-knob control set with Drive, Spectrum, and Level knobs. Drive and Level are self-explanatory; however, the Spectrum knob offers something different. Rather than operating as a typical tone control, Spectrum enables you to simultaneously dial in your bass and treble without affecting your mids. The result is extremely transparent, and it flatters any amp you plug the pedal into. You also get a bass-cut switch, a remote input jack, 18-volt power compatibility, and glow-in-the-dark knobs. With its ability to tackle light harmonic coloration, blues-like grit, and hard-rock crunch with equal aplomb, the Nobels ODR-1 Natural Overdrive is the secret to the coveted Nashville session sound.
The ODR-1 Natural Overdrive features a trio of knobs: Drive, Spectrum, and Level. Like other dirt boxes, Drive controls the amount of saturation — the ODR-1 is capable of everything from subtle coloration to tube-ish grit to muscular crunch. Level adjusts the output of the pedal. This is the knob you'd use to goose your amp. The Spectrum knob it where the magic lies: this control enables you to cut or boost your bass and treble — simultaneously. Want to take your single-coil-equipped guitar from chickin'-pickin' clean into humbucker-esque fatness? Cranking this knob will do it. Best of all, the Spectrum control leaves your midrange untouched to maintain a natural, transparent sound.
A bevy of pro-tailored extras
The Nobels ODR-1 is packed with professional-focused extras. The stompbox's bass-cut switch tames your sub-bass frequencies — a feature bassists and humbucker aficionados will certainly appreciate. A remote input jack allows the pedal to be switched on and off remotely. If you employ a complex rig like most pros do, remote operation is a must-have feature. You can also run the ODR-1 at 18 volts for added headroom. The guitarists here at Sweetwater also value this pedal's glow-in-the-dark knobs. The ODR-1's versatility lends it to lots of tweaking, and these easy-to-see knobs make doing so in dark studios and on dimly lit stages stress-free. To top it off, this stompbox boasts low current consumption, a quick-change overhead battery compartment, and a rugged metal housing.
