Product Description

Nova Repeater is TC Electronic's new 'no-frills-with-a-sound-that-kills' delay pedal. It is the pedal for you if you are a demanding guitarist who wants instant, high quality and unique results, without any of the fuss! It features the same great sound quality that made their Nova Delay the first choice delay pedal for Paul Gilbert, Doug Aldrich, Nils Lofgren and Allen Hinds. However after listening to the guitar-playing community they have trimmed out any excess baggage while also including additional features over the Nova Delay, and designed it all behind a streamlined and very easy to use interface. In short Nova Repeater is the essential lean, mean, delay-machine!

Simple yet effective
Nova Repeater is all about simplicity. There are no hidden features or complicated functions - you just get the world's best delays in a cheap and easy-to-use package. Yet it is also feature rich being the only pedal in its price range that has a dedicated tap tempo switch and theirr amazing audio tapping technology that lets you set the tempo with your playing. And with six types of TC-quality delays and an unsurpassed feature-set Nova Repeater is quite simply a bargain.

Nova Repeater - All new features
Nova Repeater has three delay time ranges labelled for both min, mid and max positions. These delay times have been carefully chosen to match the sweet-spot times used by most guitar players, making it much easier for you to dial in the perfect delay time - even without a display.

The pedal features two inputs dedicated to instrument or line level signals which means you can use it equally well in front of your amp or in an effects loop. It also has a 'KillDry' switch that makes it possible to use the pedal in a parallel effect loop and is also great for guitar players who use a mixer to prevent their dry sound from being processed. An FX.Level pot lets you adjust the wet level of your signal which means that you won't get annoying level drops on your dry sound - a common problem with other pedals.

Nova Repeater has a new multi-function knob that lets you control the amount of modulation as well as turn the effect on/off. The chorus has been re-tuned making more dramatic modulation effects possible and, on top of that, a brand new vibrato mode has been added. This was a major request among Nova Delay users and makes it possible to emulate classic tape delay wow-and-flutter or create lush modulated pads with a volume pedal.

Again, taking on numerous user requests, they added a new dual delay - zZounds is an authorized dealer of TC Electronic and TC-Helicon products.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "best tap tempo pedal on the market"
Sound: Sounds better than the Line 6 DL4 that I had before. Gives you six great, warm sounding delay types. I've found that cranking the feedback does not give you that insane oscillation sound like some delay pedals, but it has its own unique infinite delay sound (more subdued). Feature: I wanted something pared down from the DL4 (good pedal but too many options for me) and this was perfect. Six great delay types, with the ability to dial in those dotted eighth notes with the switch of a button. The tap tempo feature is great, and the auto-strum tap tempo feature is even better! I use the strum-tempo A LOT on stage - more than I use the regular stomp style tap tempo. The flashing lights show you what speed your tap tempo is currently at. My DL4 never showed you what your tempo was so this is a nice change. The only missing feature (perhaps) is programmability - but that's what the Nova Delay is for, and for $100 more bucks. I don't really need presets so I went with the more affordable Nova Repeater. No looper on this pedal either, but I can live with that. Ease of Use: You can figure it out in 15 minutes or less, It's not hard. Quality: TC Electronics makes quality stuff. I have a few of their other pedals that I really love too (the polytune!) Value: Great value for a variety of delay types in one small box, AND with tap tempo - which is a crucial feature for me. Comes with the wall power adapter (12v), which is kind of rare for pedals! Overall: This is the delay pedal for me. I had to have the tap tempo feature, and the strum-tempo feature has been a pleasant surprise - I use it all the time. I am definitely impressed with the tone that I've been able to get from this pedal -not as digital and fake as some other ones I've tried. I think I'm finally done looking for my delay pedal.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "My choice for best Delay!"
Overall: I own a couple of high-end "boutique" amps, as well as a few great production-run amps. I wanted the best delay pedal I could find to put in front of the two boutique amps (no sense in spending big bucks on an amp, then running cheap effects into it!), as well as a couple of little Vox 4 watt combos (the AC4TV and the AC4C1-BL, the latter purchased from Zzounds as well as the pedal - I'm a Vox guy, since 1963, when I took up guitar playing). After alot of research and comparison (quality, parameters and value for money spent) to other well-known delay pedals, from the simplest to the most complex to use, as well as tone, of course - nothing else matters if the TONE isn't there! - or if the pedal is noisy in any way - there was no doubt in my mind that the TC Electronic Nova Repeater was the pedal for me. Everything about this beauty is perfect for my needs. Well made, dead quiet, very user-friendly (no real learning curve and unnecessary knobs to fiddle with) and the sounds you can get are astonishing! Every setting is beautifully realized by the excellent engineers at TC. From slap-back to space-filled Gilmour-esque, from a brighter digital to warmer analogue tone, it's all there. This pedal is a true work of art in every way. Some specifics that are important to me and helped in my decision : stereo out, universal modulation, types of delay available, tap-tempo and "strum" tempo, very intuitive, well-built - and that TONE! I defy any player, even those golden-ear audiophiles (of which I am one), to find fault with the varioius delays offered in this outstanding pedal. If you're in the market for a delay pedal, you will be cheating yourself if you don't put this one at the top of your list to try out! A fantastic delay pedal and highly recommended!
Style of Music: mostly blues, rock, jazz - folk and some classical
