[NAMM] TC Electronic Nova Drive
TC Electronic announced the Nova Drive, TC Electronic’s new analog, programmable overdrive-and distortion pedal.
Nova Drive features with 24 programmable presets to create, store and recall favourite settings. Nova Drive integrates easily into any set-up, from simple pedal boards to high-end professional rigs, according to TC Electronic.
The overdrive section of Nova Drive features an all-analog circuit that is digitally controlled. Its sounds range from bluesy sting and smooth tube-like breakup to a heavy crunch. The overdrive section features a dedicated ‘mix’ knob that allows mixing in original sound as desired, preserving the original character of the existing tone. The overdrive section of Nova Drive features the classic Level, Tone and Overdrive controls as well as a mix control that allows blending the dry sound with the overdriven for added clarity, note definition and punch.
Nova Drive’s distortion section also features an analog circuit with digital control, and its distortion section has a 2-band equalization section with bass- and treble controls.
Nova Drive features three drive stages: Overdrive, Distortion and Overdrive+Distortion parallel, in any desired order. Nova Drive also features a true bypass, eliminating unwanted noise when turned of.

Nova Drive ships Q1 2009 at a suggested retail price of EUR 249 excl. VAT.
