    Recently heard a guy getting a great tone and he was using a Nobels ODR-S pedal. What do you know about this pedal?

    . Seems these are not made currently. When were they discontinued?
    . Is there a current model that replaced it that is essentially the same pedal?
    . Are there any sources out there for NOS or pre-owned ones?
    . Any other make and model pedal that was like it tonally?

    Nobels are hit and miss, even between the same model of pedal. You gotta try before you buy.

    Very significant differences older and newer ODR-1s. Green= older Korean made. Silver= newer Chinese made. I suppose the schematic is the same, but the circuitboard layout is totally different now. The opamps are different. The Korean one used KIA4558 9-pin. The Chinese uses JRC4558 8-pin. From an engineer's perspective it's the same pedal, from a guitarist's perspective bears no resemblence whatsoever. I'd give up on the Nobels ODR-1 unless you're ready to pay $250 for a green one.
