    I've been looking around for a stereo delay, I was interested in the timeline, but after watching a load of youtube vids I've decided it does a whole lot more than I'm ever going to need. So after looking around for a bit more I started watching Nova delay vids and it seems like a really good pedal, especially the new modified version.
    If anyone could let me know their experiences with it, good or bad I'd be very greatful.
    Also if anyone has owned the Nova reverb, I'd be interested to hear what you thought of that and how it compares to the Neunaber wet?

    i have the nova delay, its a decent, solid pedal, does what it does, and it does it well. as for which is better, stock or iB modified, they both cost the same new so go with whatever really.

    Check out the Nova Repeater. Basically the same as the Delay, but without the ability to save a bunch of presets. If you can live without that, you can save a bunch of money.

    Agreed. I bought the Nova Delay before the Repeater came out. If I were to it over again now, I would get the Repeater. I only paid $50 more for the Delay so I don't feel too bad, though.

    Repeater is a better pedal in terms of tonality (functionality ND is better due to presets, and stereo inputs; Repeater has a line level input).

    The Repeater has a vibrato modulation which sounds much better than the chorus modulation that the ND's mod is based on. Also the reverse and dynamic mode thresholds are better on the Repeater (although Flashback is better in these 2 departments).

    I own the standard NovaDelay, and love it. I'm not tempted by the Repeater at all...presets plus ms/BPM readout...you can even set the delay to 0 and use it as a decent chorus!

    I've had the Nova Delay (ND-1) and have the Repeater now. For my needs, the Repeater is better. I didn't really need presets and the Repeater does warmer and more modulated delays. If you like cleaner delays, then the ND-1 is your trick.

    I did look at the Repeater, but I need stereo ins, so I had to count it out

    Has anyone used the Nova reverb? I didn't even know they did a reverb, should I take the fact that no one ever talks about it to mean that it's not worth talking about?

    yeah. The Repeater's Vibrato modulation is just dead-sexy. Totally worth it.
