Tomás DonckerProducer/Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist Tomás Doncker cut his teeth as a guitarist with such genre-busting groups as James Chance & The Contortions; Defunkt; J. Walter Negro & The Loose Jointz; and many more, making him a prime mover on New York’s downtown “No Wave” scene in the early 1980s. Eventually he went international, touring and recording in Japan with jazz pianist Masabumi Kikuchi, and producing studio and songwriting sessions with Bootsy Collins, Yoko Ono, and Grammy-nominated Reggae vocal group The Itals, among others.

The Nobels ODR-1 sounds so natural and big. It keeps all of the tone from the amp, and adds just the right amount of drive and gain without taking anything. Killer.

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.

“For 15 years the ODR-1 has been my go to overdrive of choice used on countless record and songs I’ve written and produced. It’s always on a board I use period. Now to have in a smaller version really helps when I’m working in and grab go situation without sacrificing the tone I know and love.

“The ODR-Mini faithfully recreates the classic ODR-1 sound so many of us are seeking. Try it at 18 volts and it will be nearly indistinguishable from it’s iconic counterpart! Congrats to the Nobels team on a great design and price point that’s in reach for guitarists of all varieties.

After years of trying out dozens of overdrive pedals, the search is finally over with the addition of the ODR-1 to my pedalboard.
It’s vastly superior tonal textures and harmonic character inspire me to play new ideas and go to musical areas I hadn’t previously dreamed of. Thanks Bernhard!

ODR-1 mit neuen Features

Das ODR-1 liefert bereits seit fast 30 Jahren eine astreine, kompromisslose Rockzerre ab. Nun wurde  das Pedal um einige nützliche wie coole Features erweitert. Im Inneren gibt euch ein kleiner Bass-Cut-Schalter nun die Möglichkeit, den tiefen Frequenzbereich zu beschneiden und so das Bassfundament zu straffen.

Außerdem ist das Pedal nun auch mit bis zu 18 Volt betreibbar. Welchen Einfluss die höhere Spannung auf das Klang- und Dynamikverhalten des Pedals hat, gilt es im Selbsttest zu überprüfen.

Und schließlich wurde auch am Äußeren geschraubt. Die neuen “Glow in the dark”-Leuchtpotis dürften sich gerade auf dunklen Bühnen bewährt machen.
