TC Electronic Nova Drive Praised
TC electronic nova drive overdrive / distortion pedal has been reviewed and praised in this months issue of play music magazine.
Described as "A versatile new analogue distorition / overdrive from the leaders of hi-tech guitar effects' the nova drive sounds cover as wide a range of overdrive tones as one might hope for."
From mild crunch to modern scooped sounds and even a very convincing retro-flavoured octave / distortion with a touch sensitive gate that only lets the high octave range come through when the player picks firmly and digs in hard.
The nova drive doesn't just toggle between overdrive and distortion settings; it contains myriad banks of user presets, offering an impressive range of modern and vintage-style overdrive / distortion sounds.
Midi compatibility is another of the nova drives unique features, meaning that the TC distortion box will integrate with any MIDI effects control system, which is dead handy if you plan to run the nova drive as part of a fairly complex setup.
Overall "Most guitarists know that the quality of the overdrive tones can either make or break your sound and the TC nova drive is a veritable Rolls Royce of dirt boxes. Powerfull, expressive and stuffed with awesome tones, the TC is a serious bit of kit and if this doesn't make you sound like a god maybe you should take up the accordion."
