    I love my ODR-1, especially with an ash Tele on the bridge pickup. However, with an alder Strat or when using the neck pickup I often wish the bass could be cut just a bit.

    Are there any bass-reduction mods for the ODR-1? Is there a similar transparent overdrive with less bass (or a tone knob to reduce it)?
    Thanks.

    Funny, that's the very thing I like about the ODR-1; It doesn't suck out the low end like most tubescreamer-type overdrives do.. If I want that sound, I go to my trusty MJM Blues Devil, a straight-up 808 clone, but the best I've heard

    I've also heard that there are a couple ODR-1 clones available, one of the main criticisms being that they're 'thinner' sounding than the original design - At the time I read the review, it didn't strike me as a good thing, but perhaps that's exactly what you're looking for
