Delay Goes SuperNova

When you are the company that did the 2290, it's easy to get complacent. But we just want to move forward into the new and when we saw a need in the market for a compact, yet feature-rich delay pedal, we knew exactly what to do - introduce the Nova Delay!


  • 6 studio quality delay types
  • Preset- and manual mode
  • 9 user programmable presets

6 Super Sounds - Endless Possibilities

Nova Delay houses 6 delay types and 2290 MS of delay time. Add the modulation options and you've got yourself a delay that came to play!


Manual Or Preset

Combining the ease of use of presets with the freedom and control, Nova Delay offers a manual mode plus 9 presets. You can toggle between manual mode and one of the presets at any time.

Set To Stay

Nova Delay features room to rock with 9 preset positions you can fill with sounds you can instantly recall.

Backstage Pass - All Access

Nova Delay has an awe-inspiring range of sounds, but dialing in sounds is easy-peasy and the controls are so distinct you’ll always immediately hear what you’re doing.


Sets the amount of delay – subtle echo to synced stutter.


Sets the amount of repeats - short and snappy or looooooong delays, it’s up to you.

In and Out

Go mono or stereo depending on your rig, set-up or wishes - stereo does give a nice wide angle to things though.


Nova Delay uses a 12 volts (DC) adapter - and guess what? We’ve included it in the box!


This cool know allows you to select your flavour of delay so to speak, do you wanna channel the pristine ‘here and now’ vibe of a digital delay or a more loose tape sound or a lo-fi analog sound?

Mod Level

Sets the level of modulation for your delay sounds - from a slight shiver to totally overwhelming soundscapes

Mix Level

Sets how loud you want your delays in relation to the dry signal - a very cool and dynamic thing to play around with.

Dynamic Delay

Originating from the 2290, this is a delay that waxes and wanes with your playing naturally. Very cool.

Reverse Delay

Whether you want classic backwards guitar to channel your inner Hendrix or Beatle, or opt for an experimental shoegazer-approved soundscape - the reverse delay will deliver.

Ping Pong

Jumps between left and right stereo channels, giving off a nice spacey vibe.


Slowly pans across the stereo image.


The characteristic, short delay you know from the 50s, rockabilly and country music.


Decides how the notes are divided. In dual delay mode, it’s possible to have different outputs for left and right! Whatever you wanna do, the subtypes make sure your rythmic delays are in time with your music/band/backing track.

Audio Tapping

Set delay times on the fly and hassle-free by simply strumming your guitar or tapping the tempo on the pedal.

Gamechanging Modulated Delays

Adds modulation to your delay lines for and incredibly lush and beautiful delay sound.

Delay Spillover

We’re talking true spillover, so the delays will ring out even if you switch preset, switch to manual mode or bypass the pedal!

Nature VS Nurture

Nova Delay functions equally well with presets or in manual mode. There’s 9 presets available for you to fill with your most daring delays and manual mode is a quick easy what-you-see-is-what-you-get. Great for quick ideas or when inspiration strikes.

Rock An Atomic Clock

Ok, it’s not THAT precise, but Nova Delay allows you to dial in delay times with pinpoint accuracy - both in Milliseconds or in BPM.

While it's no stretch to say that all the Nova's digital delay effects are studio-quality, fast switching between presets means it's also the live guitarist's best friend.
