Nobels ODR-1 30th Anniversary Overdrive
Limited Edition Natural Overdrive with a sparkle

The ODR-1 30th Anniversary Overdrive – Limited Gold Sparkle Edition commemorates three decades since the pedal’s introduction in 1993.

Ideal for blues and crunchy rock sounds (or for that extra punch when soloing), the Nobels ODR-1 has been the first choice and secret weapon for many players and top studio guitarists for 30 years. To celebrate this milestone, Nobels have produced a very special gold sparkle finish edition and added a new versatile and convenient Bass Cut Pot for more even more tonal flexibility.

The top selling ODR-1 pedal has developed its own almost cult following since it was first designed and engineered way back in the eighties. At NAMM 2020, the pedal was upgraded to the now current ODR-1BC model. With the addition of a (much-requested) bass cut switch to help tame low end (if needed for humbuckers etc.) as well as newly developed power circuitry for enhanced headroom, it makes the pedal way more versatile for the modern age.


However, in celebration of three decades of Natural Overdrive, the ODR-1 30th Anniversary Overdrive now features an even more useful and convenient variable Bass Cut Pot, based on f

eedback from musicians around the world. It also retains all the other upgraded features from the BC model such as higher headroom and Glow-in-the-Dark knobs, as well as Nobels’ Spectrum control -one of the most important ingredients of the original pedal’s success.

The very special gold sparkle finish makes this edition look as stunning as it sounds and only a limited number of ODR-1 30th Anniversary Overdrive pedals will be released, just 5000 worldwide.

So grab a piece of legendary overdrive history while you can!
