    I've noticed this silver Nobels ODR-1 (not the S or other variants, but actual ODR-1) and there seems to be two different ones, most notably distinguished by the silver "n" on the foot switch - one has it, the other is all black.

    Anyone know the difference between these two pedals? I am guessing they came out at different times, but otherwise the same? Inquiring minds want to know...

    The one with no silver N on the pad is made in China, not Taiwan like the older ones. I too noticed this years ago and found out the answer. Before it was discontinued, the last ones went to China for manufacture for a couple of years maybe. When the reissues came out (back to the green cases), they continued to be made in China. I don't think there is much if any difference in the quality or sound of the China vs. Taiwan versions, maybe components may be a bit different.
