Back in 2014, when Nordvang Custom was launched, they released the No. 1 Overdrive pedal. The No. 1 was Nordvang's first guitar pedal, and their take on the famous and mythical K-circuit. It was discontinued in April of 2020, so now it is time to add a new chapter to their No. 1 overdrive pedal.

The No. 1 Signature pedal is not a direct successor of the original No. 1 overdrive pedal, and their circuits differ. While the original No. 1 overdrive was a tweaked version of the K-circuit, the new No. 1 Signature is as close as you can get to the tone and feel of the Klon.





The original No. 1 pedal used full size 24 mm, Japanese Hi-Fi potentiometers, and had in increased headroom to +/-15 volt on all op-amp stages. The No. 1 Signature uses standard size 16 mm, Vimex potentiometers, and follows the K-circuits supply voltage scheme; +9 volt on the buffer and overdrive stage, and +18/-9 volt supply on the EQ and output stage.

Like all Nordvang Custom pedals, the No. 1 Signature overdrive is made using premium quality components. They use WIMA MKP10 input capacitors and NO electrolytical capacitors in the signal chain.
No. 1 features buffered relay bypass and Pure Tone audio jacks for the input and output. A 3 position toggle switch labeled "Clipping" enables you to select between Germanium diodes, Schottky diodes, or no diodes in the overdrive stage.

What really sets the No. 1 Signature apart is the Pre Drive. The Pre Drive is basically a cascading overdrive circuit activated with a toggle switch. It's similar to stacking another overdrive with the K-circuit. One of the qualities, that fans of the Klon love, is their stacking capability. They simply sound great stacked both before, and after, other overdrive pedals. So with that in mind, and to expand the tonal horizon of the K-circuit, Nordvang decided to add the Pre Drive.

The Pre Drive is, as the name implies, an overdrive stage that precedes the K-circuit itself. The circuit is fixed, and they have voiced it as a low gain overdrive, with a mild touch responsive breakup. It uses asymmetrical soft-clipping, and has a slightly mid focused frequency response.





The K-circuit in itself is extremely versatile and has equally high tonal qualities as a "flat" frequency clean boost with the gain knob at zero, a low gain mid pushed overdrive, as well as at higher gain settings.
The Pre Drive will add another layer of tonal options in each of these scenarios.

With the K-circuit dialed in as a clean boost and the gain knob at zero, adding the Pre Drive will make the No. 1 Signature a dynamic, low gain overdrive, with a slight mid-hump, that is very responsive to your pick attack. Add to that the EQ and output stage of the K-circuit controlled by the tone and volume knob, and you get a versatile overdrive with loads of output on tap.

The gain knob works as a blend control and turning up the gain, you will immediately hear the mid characteristics of the k-circuit's gain/clipping stage blending in, and an increasing harmonic complexity.
The Pre Drive can be used with the entire sweep of the gain knob, and lets you experience the power of stacking.

The clipping switch enables 3 choices for clipping diodes in the gain/clipping stage of the K-circuit. This affects the response of the K-circuit, compression, tone, and feel wise.

  • Germanium diodes - low headroom and most compression.
  • Schottky diodes - Higher headroom, more punchy low end and less compression.
  • No diodes - Loads of headroom and no compression. At higher gain settings it will get LOUD.

The different clipping options, combined with the Pre Drive, further expands the tonal possibilities of the No. 1 Signature pedal.

The No. 1 Signature features control knobs for gain, tone, and volume,  plus 2 toggle switches for clipping and the Pre Drive.

No. 1 Signature Overdrive Features:

  • Replica of the K-circuit
  • Buffered relay bypass
  • External 3 position Clipping switch to choose between a pair of Germanium clipping diodes, a pair of Schottky clipping diodes, or "no didoes"
  • Original Russian D9B germanium diodes
  • Switchable Pre Drive - overdrive stage


The No. 1 Signature pedal is built using carefully selected, top shelf components:

  • VISHAY 1% metalfilm resistors
  • Audiophile WIMA MKP10, MKS4, FKP2 and Panasonic film capacitors
  • NO electrolytical capacitors in the audio circuit
  • VIMEX potentiometers
  • CARLING Footswitch
  • CKK and TAIWAY toggle switches
  • PURE TONE MULTI-CONTACT 1/4" JACK
  • Silver plated teflon insulated cable for internal wiring
  • U.S. made DAVIES MOULDING 1470 knobs

Power Supply (sold separately):
This pedal does not use batteries, it uses a 2.1mm plug, 9 Volt DC, Center-Negative power supply, with a minimum 100mA of delivery (like most all guitar pedals use)Any power supply higher than 9 Volt DC can damage the pedal. Nordvang recommends a quality power supply with isolated outputs.

Warranty:
Comes with Nordvang Custom's 2-year warranty, which covers defects under normal use, using a proper 9 volt power supply.

Shipping:
Ships fast! Usually same day, with Free UPS shipping in U.S. with tracking (1 biz day processing, 1-3 biz days transit time usually). 1 and 2-Day guaranteed shipping are also available.
