Overdrive in its purest form
Dynamic overdrive with natural harmonics right at your feet
ODR1 is a smooth, dynamic overdrive, designed to emulate the overdrive sound of our highly recognized X2 Tube Amplifier.
The ODR1 gives you overdrive tones ranging from the classy crispiness of a semi-cranked VOX AC30 to the addictive grit of Hendrix. We use carefully selected Germanium Diodes to get as close to the natural compressed tone of a tube as possible.
The pedal is housed in a rugged steel chassis that is built to withstand extensive daily use and continuous touring.
We have carefully selected all components to ensure superior sonic qualities, minimal noise and reliable use for years and years.
All ¼” jack connectors are gold-plated, and all internal wiring utilizes high-quality, shielded audio cable with minimum DC resistance and capacity.
When switched OFF (bypassed), ODR1 acts as a unity gain line driver, capable of driving even very long cables without tonal loss or unwanted coloration.
Alberto Barrero (Composer, Video Maker, Studio & Live guitarist)
“The Caveman ODR1 is the most elegant, dynamic and transparent Overdrive pedal I’ve tried in a long time… It’s really inspiring to play with the ODR1”
“I was looking for an overdrive pedal that would give me the same tone and feel as the X2 – 6L6-based Tube Amp. I didn’t want any major changes in my tone, but the dynamic and responsive feel of a saturated tube – a pedal that could handle both rhythmic playing, as well as soloing, while letting all of my guitar notes stand out clearly. To my ears, ODR1 nails it!”

How we record
Guitar -> Caveman Audio stomp -> Caveman Audio X2/X3 Amplifier -> Caveman Audio 412 cab.
We use two microphones in front of the cabinet – a Shure SM57 and a Royer R-121.
The microphone signals are sent to the Caveman Audio Dual Mic Preamp and the outputs then run straight into ProTools.
The sound you hear has NOT been processed in any way – no additional compression or EQ.
What you hear is simply the raw recorded signal. We add a little reverb and occasionally a bit of stereo delay – but that’s it!
The bass is recorded with a PJ bass guitar straight into the Caveman Audio BAS1 preamp – and from there directly into ProTools.
All Acoustic Guitars are recorded with a Martin D28, passing the signal from the onboard piezo pickup straight into the Caveman Audio ACC1 preamp and then directly into ProTools.
The drums are Superior Drummer 3 grooves.
