The verdict is in on the Nova system, and it's going on eBay. It's not transparent enough. With the loop on and all of the effects off, it's still a big difference. It's also a pain in the ass to use.
Thus, recommendations? I'm torn between a G-Major, and another 1101, which I had before and liked. I need to do this quickly, before the urge to buy an Axe-Fx for effects only comes over me, having played with Vince's the other night and been extremely impressed with it. I just don't need a $2000 processor to compliment my $2000 head, since I am enamored with the raw tone of the Roadster as it is.
