i have the ODR-1 Nobels Overdrive pedal and i find that it works great...i dont play live yet or really have a great amp to run it through, but i find that it works well with what i have... and it only cost me 40 bucks at a local guitar shop. Try it out...they seem like good pedals but its just no one really has heard of this brand because either being over sees, or not very good advertising.
