Speak to a lot of Nashville session greats about their favourite overdrive pedal, and plenty will point to one box, the ODR-1 from Nobels.

This legendary drive pedal now includes a built in bass cut allowing the player to tame some of the that wild low end whilst Single coils users can still access the harmonically rich full range of the ODR-1.

There really has never been a better time to own this absolute cult classic transparent overdrive pedal to deliver creamy, natural overdrive – Everything from pushed clean amp tones to gain filled stacks!
