TC Electronic designed this pedal from their 2290 Dynamic Digital Delay, taking that advanced effect technology and putting it into a convenient stompbox.

It’s on the larger side (and in the middle of the price range), but if you’re looking for the most innovative option the Nova Delay should definitely be on your short list.

The programmable presets are the main thing people love about this pedal. You’ll get nine different slots for saving your settings.

Switching between them is simple, too.

This is ideal if you want the choice of changing delay styles within a set, saving you a lot of time over manually adjusting each of the dials.

In terms of the settings themselves, there are six delay types and three modulation styles, along with the five basic control knobs, all of which can be used in tandem to create truly unique sounds.

The processor this pedal is based off of is used for studio effects and mixing, and the Nova pedal maintains this quality standard.

This is partially thanks to the true stereo inputs and outputs. The delay will sound full and dynamic as a result, however you have it set. TC Electronics has really thought through every detail of this pedal that will impact your sound.

The spillover feature, for example, gives you a more natural decay when you change from one mode to another, letting you tweak your settings without interrupting your groove. For a pedal that delivers on both sound quality and ease of use, the Nova Delay is an excellent way to go.

  • Dimensions: 4.9” X 4.9” X 2.2”

  • Modulation types: Light, medium, heavy
