Classic old school sounds but with digital controls!
The Nova Drive is a dual engine overdrive and distortion pedal that features true bypass with the awesome analogue drive circuit from the acclaimed Nova System.
The Overdrive Section
The analogue, yet digitally controlled overdrive section of NovaDrive takes you from a clean boost plus a little extra oomph, through bluesy sting and smooth tube-like breakup to heavy, all-out crunch-a-licious goodness.
Nova Drive's overdrive section is also the perfect place to find added sustain for your existing sounds and to supercharge your already great sounds into instant classics. Its amazing analog tone will blow you and other tone purists away and though the overdrive is instantly recognizable, it doesn't mess with your original tone that you've spent so many hours creating, ensuring easy integration into your current sound.
The overdrive section features a dedicated mix knob that allows you to mix in your original sound as you see fit, preserving the original character of your tone. The overdrive section of Nova Drive also features Level, Tone and Overdrive controls. Added to that, the pre-set and control options of Nova Drive ensure that you don't have to rebuild your set-up from scratch to use it, but a pedal that works to enhance your tone and rig. It integrates with your existing sounds so well, it's best described as adding another channel to your amp.
The Distortion Section
The dedicated analog, digitally controlled distortion section of NovaDrive's dual engine design gives you a wide range of distortion and tones from punchy subtle driving distortion to balls-to-the-wall screaming fuzz that’ll drive you wild in the best way imaginable.
NovaDrive’s distortion features a 2-band equalization section with Bass and Treble knobs, allowing for precise shaping of your distorted sounds and added flexibility to your tones. NovaDrive’s distortion character is best typified as raw, but like the overdrive section, it preserves all character of your own sound. Used as a primary distortion, it excels at classic arena rock rhythm tones and guitar-hero soaring leads.
Do you have a powerful amp with too much headroom to crank? Nova Drive nails that sweet spot where a tube amp goes from sparkly clean to warm overdrive, minus the earsplitting volume. Maybe you already love your rig's overdriven and distorted sound? In that case the Nova Drive distortion section is the perfect solution as a boost for solos, giving you all the extra kick you could ever need.
4 applications Nova Drive can be used as a stand-alone pedal, with a G-Switch, in a rack setup or with a G-System. Whether you’re a straightforward less squawkin', more rockin-stompbox guy or into freaking around with hi-tech rack setups, Nova Drive is guaranteed to integrate perfectly into your existing rig, or that I am SO getting that once I get me some cash dream rig of the future.
