I haven't bought anything in a while (I've been a good boy...well, almost!). There was one of these available locally at a fair price so I took the plunge. Will pick it up tomorrow. It should be a faithful (discontinued) re-creation of a Nobels OD-1. Gotta keep growing the pedal collection
A recreation of an ODR-1? Why not just get the real thing? The ODR-1 Mini at $79.00, new.
I thought I read somewhere that the ODR-1 was reissued In a mini.
This is was a minty used one locally in great shape. It was one of those spontaneous purchases. If I wanted to get a new mini it would have to be ordered online, the pricing with currency conversion, shipping and taxes would make the pedal the same price (actually more) and I have to wait up to two weeks to get it (unless one of the Canadian online stores had it).
As well, I just use the pedals at home so I don't have them fastened to a board. I like the solidity of the heavier pedals. I have a few mini pedals but these days if I have a choice I go with the full-size versions. However, If I walked into the local shop here and they had the new mini on the shelf I'd likely just buy it anyway.
GuitarZ: Ugh! Dropped small nut while installing new outside lamp. Thought I saw where it landed. Couldn't find it. Moved the car & such. Engineering mind said, drop another (after ~hour). Bang! Within 5 seconds. Nut found! Yea! Wife Impressed!

GuitarZ: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
