Nobels ODR-S, ein Muß auf allen meinen Pedalboards, perfekt als Low-Gain Crunch, mit dem EQ optimal klanglich an den Clean Sound anpaßbar, auch bei höherem Gain fett und transparent, läßt sich gut mit anderen Pedalen stacken (z.B. vor einem Klon oder Klon-Clone). Wird bein herunterregeln schön clean. Ich habe 99% der Videos für Guitarpoint/Maintal mit einem ODR-S gemacht. Pflichttreter.
