    Mine arrived in the mail today. This is one of the easiest pedals to dial in that I've ever used. It's extremely versatile from mild overdrive to hard clipped distortion. Often I find myself trying to tame the treble on overdrive/distortion pedals with a Tele and Fender amp, but it's no problem with this one. The Spectrum control on The ODR-Mini is very usable. It's True Bypass as well. This one's a keeper for me.

    I've watched some demos of this pedal and thought it sounded great every time. Congrats!

    Thanks! Yeah I'm not usually this excited about dirt pedals. I'm really surprised that there isn't more chatter on the various forums about this one. I've read some, but not much.

    Happy NPD to you! I love my Visual Sound Open Road which is a Nobels Odr-1 clone. Best bridge pickup creamy overdrive for a Tele.

    Thanks! I always thought about trying the Open Road, but never did it.

    If you can get past the shape, the size and the color...it's awesome. :lol:

    Seriously though, I like the way it looks and the quality is excellent.

    Haha! They are unique for sure. Really though, I always liked the look of the old Visual Sound pedals. I know a lot of people hated them, but not me.

    I also have the Angry Fuzz. I'd like to have the Route 808 and the Comp 66...or maybe the old Route 66 combo pedal. Cool stuff!

    It's a quality piece for sure. Didn't keep mine though, needed a drive with a bit more color.

    Ended up with a One Control Golden Acorn which hits the spot in that regard.

    I'm still using mine. It just works without any hassle.
