Nobels is a guitar effects maker based in Germany. Their ODR-1 was developed back in 1985. The aim was to branch off from the 'nasal sounding' drives of the time and create a true open sounding pedal. The result, the Nobels ODR-1, is a pedal that responds to your dynamics and adds texture to your tone in a very natural, musical way. The ODR-1 has now developed a cult following, becoming a staple on the boards of countless Nashville musicians. Players like Gary Moore, Bryan Adams, T.M. Stevens, Jerry Donahue and Guthrie Trapp have made Nobels products part of their sonic arsenal over the years! The Novels ODR-1 is now made in China.
