The TC Electronic Nova System is a multi effects unit designed for use with electric guitar. It is an analog pedal, but has digital features as well. It has 1/4 inch connections and is not a rackable unit as it is a stomp box.


The configuration of the TC Electronic Nova System is very easy to follow and to use, which is really one of its best qualities. It is easy to toggle between all of the different effects and it won't take too long to understand how to use everything in this unit. The variations on this are endless and it is great to have so many different types of sounds within one unit. The manual for the TC Electronic Nova System is very thorough and is definitely helpful to have around while you are learning this pedal.


The sound quality of the TC Electronic Nova System is very good and is what I have come to expect from TC Electronic, as this is just the latest great piece of gear that they have issued in a long line of great products. I only use this pedal with guitar, usually a Fender Stratocaster and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb amp. All of the effects on this unit are great, but I would say I definitely like the reverb and delay effects the best, with the chorus and other modulation effects coming next. Overall, all the sounds are useful and it is great to have so many great sounding effects within one powerful unit.


I've only been using the TC Electronic Nova System multi effects pedal for less than a year, but since I started using it I have become a big fan of this unit. I'm usually not a big fan of multi effects pedals, but this is an impressive piece of gear. The price isn't cheap, but it is reasonable for what you get and is really aimed at professionals and serious players. I definitely recommend checking out the TC Electronic Nova System if you are a guitar player looking for a multi effects pedal that is compact and sounds great.
