This is the second of our TC Nova pedal reviews, the Nova Repeater being the first, which we confess we found to be just the job.
The Nova Drive is a digitally controlled, analog overdrive and distortion pedal, combining both pedals into a single configurable device, in the only way TC know how.

The TC Nova pedals are getting a pretty good reputation, each in the range with something  special to offer. The Nova Drive (NDR-1) gives you two independent yet, routable effects - Overdrive and Distortion, each with separate controls, which allows routing  - OD-> Dist, Dist->OD, or both in parallel  - a combination that appeared to please the Monkey Lord.
  • Programmable All-analog drive circuit
  •   True Bypass
  •  Extensive routing options
  • Programmable control
  •  Integration with G-System

Rob Chappers aka The Monkey Lord, cranks it up to eleven and beyond.
