ODR-1 30th Anniversary

And suddenly everything happens very quickly and completely unexpectedly
– 40 years of the Nobels brand
– 30 years the legendary overdrive ODR-1 has been pleasing the ears.
To celebrate this anniversary, an Anniversary Pedal is now available which reflects the classic sound of the golden Nobels ODR-1 era. For the first time upgraded with a continuously adjustable bass cut pot. Nobels has listened to the wishes of the humbucker players and fulfilled them.

From many old 90s “original” ODR-1 pedals, the best sounding pedal was transplanted into the anniversary model. The search for the holy “original ODR-1 Grail”, at extremely high prices, has surely come to an end.

Limited edition (5000 pieces worldwide) – with numbered special packaging, certificate, Anniversary Pick and sticker.

ODR-1 - 2020 with Bass Cut Switch

Cult Classic Nobels ODR-1 gets an Update

Over the decades key artists such as Jerry Donahue, Tom Bukovac, Guthrie Trapp, Carl Verheyen, John Shanks, Tim Pierce, Robbie McIntosh, Clem Clempson, Micky Moody and countless other amazing players have made the ODR-1 Natural Overdrive part of their sonic arsenal. While all single coil guitarists as well as most humbucker users and even bassists love the clarity and versatility of the full sound of the ODR-1 some heavy humbucker players asked for the chance to reduce the sub-bass end.


The new ODR-1(bc) now offers a bass-cut switch under the battery cover to preset original ODR-1 sound or to preset slightly reduced sub-bass.

Operation now is possible from 9V – 18V DC for more headroom, if you want it. The pointers on the knobs now are GitD Glow-in-the-Dark.
The ODR-1 has proved to be a favourite with pros, especially session players, as it works so effectively with guitars’ volume controls for on-the-fly tonal changes in songs. The pedal’s wide range is controlled by a SPECTRUM control tone pot. Turning the knob clockwise increases the bass and treble at the same time. Midrange stays untouched in either direction to offer transparency with a pinch of warmth.

Nobels Mounty-P _front_package_mini


Small black, metal mounting plates to attach our pedal units to any surface!

If you play live and are serious about your set up then screw your effects down with Nobels Mounty-Ps. Velcro is great if you are bedroom player or constantly swap your stuff around but is a liability for gigging and gathering hair. The Mounty-Ps cost next to nothing and are cleverly designed. No chance of you opening up your pedal case to find your carefully arranged pedals in a heap all scratched up. Mounty-Ps work with big heavy multi units all the way down to mini pedals.

Nobels Mounyt-Ps, a much more elegant solution to hook and loop tape.

One set consists of: 4 Mounty-P´s plus 4 screws.
