Great sound, simple to use, and more features than any other pedal at this price.

TC Electronic's Nova Repeater is a 'no-frills-with-a-sound-that-kills' delay pedal. It's perfect for guitarists who want instant and unique results, without the fuss. It features the same great sound quality that made the 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 TC Electronic trimmed out the excess baggage while also including additional features over the Nova Delay, and designed it all behind a streamlined and easy-to-use interface.

Nova Repeater is all about simplicity. There are no hidden features or complicated functions”you just get awesome delays in an affordable and easy-to-use guitar pedal. Yet it is also feature-rich being the only pedal in its price range that has a dedicated tap tempo switch and amazing audio tapping technology that lets you set the tempo with your playing. And with 6 types of TC-quality delays and an unsurpassed feature-set Nova Repeater is quite simply a bargain.

Nova Repeater has 3 delay time ranges labeled 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 TC Electronic delay pedal features 2 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 guitar effect pedals.

The TC Electronic Nova Repeater has a multifunction knob that lets you control the amount of modulation as well as turn the effect on/off. The chorus has been retuned making more dramatic modulation effects possible, and a 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, TC Electronic added a dual delay”1/4 and 1/8 notes. This stereo delay is the secret behind Steve Lukather 80's sound”just make sure you set the delay time at exactly 400ms.

This TC Electronic effect pedal also features an adaptive dynamic delay that automatically sets the perfect threshold for the ducking. No calibration is needed”even if you decide to turn up the volume during a solo, Nova Repeater will automatically adjust the threshold on-the-fly.

Excellent Delay Pedal


from Undisclosed

Comments about TC Electronic Nova Repeater Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

This is an excellent delay pedal. It's design is straight forward making it very easy to use. I think the sound quality and the variety of delays makes this pedal probably the last delay pedal I'll need. The price is reasonable for the variety of sounds yo can dial in with this pedal.

Amazing delay sounds, amazing pedal!

Comments about TC Electronic Nova Repeater Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

This is one of the most user friendly pedals I have bought in a long time. Everything makes so much sense on this pedal and the interval selection is a great feature! The only minor issue is that I have trouble discerning a few of the different delay types - a couple of them are pretty similar sounding. Despite this it does its job perfectly and I dont see myself needing another delay pedal ever!
