It was during a conversation with Pete Thorn in Germany during the 2018 Guitar Summit that I heard about the Nobels ODR-1 overdrive pedal. It seems that this pedal has been used for a long time by studio guitarists in Nashville, as it costs around €90 online, I thought it was mandatory to try it out.
Warning! Contrary to what the green color of the pedal could suggest, the ODR-1 is not a Tube Screamer clone. Far from it! We are even more in the category of overdrive that give a sound more amp-like than a TS-9 with its hump in the midrange.
