Yes – what often differs between pedals is the dispersion and component aging that changes the sound.

What means OEM? Original Equipment Manufacturer
An original equipment manufacturer (OEM) traditionally is defined as a company whose goods are used as components in the products of another company/distribution, which then sells the finished item to users under their own brand.
Here is a small overview of the companies:
Fender, Rhino, Series10, JHS, Phonic Rock Box, Hello Kitty, Shadow, Rok Axe, Impact, Kramer, Dean…
From time to time we receive inquiries about spare parts for Nobel’s products. A battery cover or the button for an old midi controller is often missing. Unfortunately, there are no longer any spare parts for many models but we even have a few spare parts in stock. Please make an individual request by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
