Uncompromised studio-quality digital effects in a compact floor-based design.

The ND-1 Nova Delay raises the bar for guitar effect pedals and redefines what it means to be "state-of-the-art." It's built upon the legacy and knowledge of TC's world-renowned TC 2290 Dynamic Digital Delay.

With 6 different stereo delay types and the option to store up to 9 presets customizable by an array of style parameters ranging from vintage tape to digital delay. This effect pedal easily serves all delay requirements of modern guitar players who seek unique sounds.

Each of these types can be modified with a delay style — a unique feature of ND-1 Nova Delay that allows you to mix and match your delay type and style infinitely.

With the ND-1 Nova Delay, both single delay and dual delay lines can be applied to any type and style using the tap tempo switch or delay time knob to determine the delay time that ranges from 1 to 2290 ms.

Three different types of modulation (light, medium and heavy) can be applied to any of the delay types — a feature originating from the TC 2290 Dynamic Digital Delay processor.

The all-new Audio Tapping™ technology enables you to set the tempo of the delay by playing a rhythm into the pedal while holding down the tap tempo switch. You can now set the tempo of the delay using your most important asset: Your playing.

Other great ND-1 Nova Delay features include the pedal's ability to choose between ms (milliseconds) and bpm (beats per minute) readout, decide if you want spillover on individual settings and turn global tempo — where tap tempo determines delay time on user presets — on and off.

Features
  • Uncompromised studio-quality TC effects 6 stereo delay types: line, dynamic, reverse, ping-pong, pan, and slap back
  • Style parameters for extensive tweaking
  • Stores up to 9 presets
  • Two switchable settings:

  • Up to 2290 ms delay time

    If you are even considering another delay pedal, i ask that you would clear your mind of it temporarily and just consider this pedal. Look up reviews and demos on you tube. You'll see that this pedal performs. I can say from over a year of experience with this pedal that there has never been a time when I wished it could do more. 'Nuf said. But seriously!! This pedal is Amazing!! Super responsive, super customizable, and you'll never again have to worry about tapping a dotted eigth!! You can save up to 9 presets on this thing, plus using the manual delay settings, which gives you the option of up to 10 self-set delay sounds to which you have super quick access. I have used this pedal for everything from heavy metal to Hillsong and it has never let me down!! I've tried it on a number of guitar and amp combinations, and I still got it to do what I wanted it to!! If you're thinking that you may not want this because of too many features and you'll feel overwhelmed, then just use the most basic settings (Delay line type and straight eights note subdivision) and get this pedal just for the presets!! For you acoustic players out there, this pedal works amazing for you guys too!! I've tried it myself!! I have never been, nor will I ever be unsatisfied with this pedal!!! I recommend this over the Line6 DL4 Delay under any and all circumstances. The Nova Delay out performs every other pedal out there!! So don't wait if you're considering getting one!! Get it!!!

    I bought this about 3-4 years ago for live gigging. My biggest issue with it is the lack of battery backup for retaining custom settings. Every time you unplug the pedal from electricity (it's only source of power) you will lose your custom settings. Also to switch to a different saved setting during a song you will have to use your hand to manually select the saved setting. There is no way to use your foot to change settings (unless you play barefoot and use your toes, hint... the chicks won't dig that). Additionally, the foot selector switch tends to stick in the depressed position which makes for frantic and awkward scrambling to pull out the button in order to engage the delay. One other thing, the LED display which shows which setting you are on is not bright, nearly invisible in sunlight and also very hard to read on stage with colored stage lighting around. In all, I think it's too expensive for it's annoyances and is best suited for home recording where it can stay plugged in to a electrical outlet and not lose your custom settings.

      Comments about TC Electronic ND-1 Nova Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Love this thing. Easy to use, and sounds awesome. Tap tempo is easy to use, and works flawlessly. The only thing missing is the ability to switch prgrams via footswitch. Using this live, I have to bend down between songs to change preset programs. Not a big deal really, but if it had either another switch on the box, or a out jack like the Boss DD-20 to attach a seperate switch that would work as a program change, would take this from great to epic.

            Comments about TC Electronic ND-1 Nova Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

            This pedal is the best delay pedal I've seen. Delays sound incredible while maintaining a high level of customizability and versatility. The presets are integrated well and can be changed easily on the fly. With both tap tempo and the ability to set delay speed by BPM or milliseconds, you never have to worry about being out of time with a drummer. The subdivision feature is especially useful for those that like to use their delays to create rhythmic patterns (like the Edge from U2). This pedal is incredibly functional for the amount of sounds packed into it and has quite a reasonable price tag, I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quality delay.

            Awesome delay pedal,hands down has the most features out of any delay pedal in its price range.

            Comments about TC Electronic ND-1 Nova Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I love this pedal and recommend it to anybody.I even hold it and stare at it when I'm not using it!When you look at all the features,when you look at the build quality and you consider the price, nothing out there beats it.
            The ND-1 Nova Delay has no shortage of of useable and very cool features.To start,the BPM feature is awesome and alone would make this pedal worth buying.I use DAW software like most people do now and being able to dial in exactly the right amount of delay to the exact tempo of a project makes it easy to record and play.Once you have your delay time set the subdivision feature lets you pick how the repeats are played back,quarter notes,eighth notes,etc.and even a dual delay feature that has separate repeat times for the left and right channels.With 6 different delay types the ND-1 will do everything you need a delay pedal to do.I love the reverse delay!Now the next features are pretty special and you won't find them all in one unit.The color knob will let you pick an old school tape delay sound,a vintage analog sound,a pristine digital sound and anything in between.You can add modulation to the repeats so they pop out more and the audio tapping feature lets you set your delay time to you're playing.
            Quality is top notch.The LED display is bright and easy to read and the sound is second to none in this price range.It looks and feels like a well built piece of gear.
            You wont find a delay pedal in this price range that can do all the stuff the ND-1 can.I've looked.The ND-1 is a true bargain.

            Amazing delay pedal

            By DaniLagun

            from Juncos, Puerto Rico

            Comments about TC Electronic ND-1 Nova Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I got this pedal last Christmas as a present from my parents and once I used it, I realized what a great pedal I had. It's got all the features you could ever dream of in a delay pedal and you can do all sorts of things with it. I've even found a setting to make a piano pad kind of sound with the guitar. It's a really versatile pedal. The only bad thing about this pedal is how much it costs, but for the price it's really worth it! I would recommend this pedal to anyone.

            Best delay pedal in it's class!

            By Anonymous

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about TC Electronic ND-1 Nova Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I've used numerous delay pedals through the years, but this one is clearly the best I've seen for it's price range. Although it lacks some of the extra features found in other pedals such as auto volume and a looper, it's more about quality than quantity. The sound is absolutely fantastic and has more warmth and richness than any other digital delay I've used. The ability to make any delay mode tape/analog/digital (or anywhere in between) is great. My only complaints: The modulation is not quite as flexible as on other pedals, but still sounds good and gets the job done. Also, there's no way to easily change presets without manually clicking the button in a live situation. But, the superb sound and build quality of this pedal makes up for it's few drawbacks.

            The perfect delay pedal.

            Comments about TC Electronic ND-1 Nova Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I used to use a Vox Time Machine delay, which I liked, but was never happy with. Something about its sound and features always made me feel like I was sounding bad. Since selling that and buying this... the difference is amazing. The sound of this pedal is fantastic... for those of you with qualms about an all digital pedal... this thing can do just about any sound. Perhaps it doesn't capture the character of an analog delay quite so perfectly, but if delay and timing is a crucial part of your playing style, and not just an accent (which is what old fashioned analog delays are fantastic at) this is the ultimate pedal. The preset system is fantastic. You can save up to nine presets, but you only have to cycle through two if that's all you want. You can scroll through the presets using the tap and on/off switches, making this the ultimate in stage delay. Sounds are versatile and useful.. stereo is amazing... no noise at all and YOU CAN RUN IT FLAWLESSLY at 9v, as long as you don't have high gain boosters before it. Has no negative effect on tone at all. Get it, and pump your stage confidence through the roof!

            It doesn't get much better

            By C.C

            from St Louis Missouri

            Comments about TC Electronic ND-1 Nova Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I have never much cared for digital delay..I always preferred the much more natural sound of analog even with its flaws..Then i decided to upgrade the delay section of my board ..I purchased a Maxon AD999 for the analog section which i might ad is also a incredible analog delay but with very little options.I then started searching for a digital delay ..I was replacing a vintage Boss DD-2 that sounded very analog although it was digital.(I know i'm stuck in the past.)But were the DD-2 was failing was this is a digital delay and it was very basic and limited..So after my research of digital delays i decided to pony up for the Nova delay even though i was somewhat skeptical expecting just another hyped up pedal with a bunch of gimmicks ..Well the Nova delay has alot of gimmicks thats for sure.But they are not just gimmicks but usable functions.They are settings that are not just play toys..The bells and whistles can be used in a musical way and not just to make space noises.Not only does it have all these options but it is actually user friendly which was surprising with all the options it has and i'm about the farthest thing from what would be considered technical mind.But when it comes right down to it all the bells and whistles ease of use don't mean anything if the pedal doesn't sound good.Nothing to fear here with this unit either..It has made me actually consider making this as my primary delay instead of my beloved analog delays..It sounds that good..So for me the bottom line is yes the $219 is a lot to spend on any pedal..But i have spent more and received much less..Although it is not a bargain you get what you pay for with this pedal..

            Magic in a box

            Comments about TC Electronic ND-1 Nova Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:

            Decided to upgrade from my DD-3 to something with a digital display in ms. The Nova ND-1 certainly does not disappoint. The delays are so rich sounding and you can tweak them until your digits turn numb. The only reason I gave it a 4.5 overall is because you only get 9 presets plus the 1 manual. Another bank of presets would take this unit over the top. The price is a little steep (and would be easier to take with more presets) but this unit adds incredible depth to my sound so absolutely no regrets. My other option was to go with rack effects, which at twice the price of this unit just wasn't worth it. If you're looking for a great delay stomp box, you just found it.
