While I was at NAMM I was given a Nobels ODR-1 overdrive pedal to try out. I have never personally used one, but I wanted to give it whirl because I have recorded guitarists before that use and love this pedal. My friend Tim Pierce has one that he loves to use.
This pedal sounds fantastic just about everywhere you set it. I set the “drive” low and pushed my amp with the “level” control and it got a great medium overdrive tone. Setting the “drive” higher and the “level” lower allowed me to get a very nice saturated sound. The “spectrum” control lets you dial in the perfect EQ and shape your tone just the way you like it.
If you’re looking for an overdrive pedal that will give you lots of tonal options and add an extra layer of versatility to your guitar recording, look no further than the Nobels ODR-1.
Have a marvellous time recording and mixing,
How does one sign up for the give away part?
sorry read the short blurb but only just now noticed the video window.. sry
No problem! Glad you found the link!
I thought that this was going to have a $200-300 price tag on it. For a $100 pedal the Nobel ODR1 sounds amaizing!
I use a vintage hand wired Vox amp and I absolutely love the sound of it but it just doesn’t drive the valves as much as I would like it to. I am definitely going to get the ODR-1 and it will likely be the only pedal that I play through since it has the drive sound that I have been looking for!
Thanks so much for taking the time to demo this for us Warren!

Yes it is @disqus_osiYLD6Nr4:disqus!! We just shipped a huge mic giveaway to Brasil!! That was expensive, but we still did it!!
Nice Pedal! Looking forward to a shot at winning it! Cheers Warren!
Hi @johnny_abreu:disqus best of luck to you and everyone else!
Thanks Warren.. love your channel it means a lot to all of us fellow engineers!!
The question is what kind of amp was that really playing through and does the pedal have a tube in it? I can hear a huge Zeppelin influence in the playing also.
Ah yes, +1, I’d like to know the amp used for this too!
Hi @disqus_8bTpacG5WP:disqus it was a Marshall JMP
Lovely, sounds great! Thanks Warren!
Hi @ianrlewis:disqus marvellous question! I was using my Marshall JMP set clean! The pedal doesn’t have a tube in it but sounds amazing doesn’t it? It’s no surprise it’s the go of so many guitarists!
It sounds really good. I used to have contests with many different guitarists when I was doing the live stuff. My theory was since they are joining my band and I write the stuff and have to focus on singing they need to have a better tone than me considering guitar was not my main function. I wish I had this pedal at that time. Maybe even in the future. I am wondering how it would stack up against the natural distortion of your amp.
Do be rockin’ brother
More toys, more toys
Thanks ever so much @plap-disqus-b951782ef245e750f4bb131e66fb3825:disqus!!
Wow Warren you alway seem to bring us the best sounding gear….keep it coming. Will have to buy one if i dont win it
Thanks ever so much @scottbertram:disqus!! Yes, wonderful pedal!!
Wow This is an awesome pedal for the price. It has that sound that is usable in almost anything you could do. And of course you make it sound even more appealing with your guitar playing. Well done. ( clap, clap, clap )
Hi @plap-disqus-94cdbdb84e8e1de8a725fa2ed61498a4:disqus I agree! Perfect for pretty much everything I track!
Love your playing Warren, love that Yamaha, and definitely love the sound of the OD1. Gotta have it. Thank you.
Thanks ever so much @plap-disqus-2e65f2f2fdaf6c699b223c61b1b5ab89:disqus!! You Rock my friend!
Hi, Warren! Love your playing! What’s the model of RevStar you used?
Hi @ilyasilakov:disqus! Great question! I’m not next to it at the moment, however it is a Japanese model!
Hi – I have an ODR-1 actually 3 of them! But one of them died. I need a schematic and board layout to fix it….can you point me to where I could find this? Thanks! Best pedal ever! Chris
