I was only interested in doing the preset switch mod. May do the tap tempo mod somewhere down the line


So without further ado...

Standard TC Electronics Nova Delay before:




Side panels removed:
For removal of the side panels and the main enclosure, Torx screws are used:




Pull off the top panel, and you get this below. Removing the nuts that hold the upper pots in is a bit of a pain as they are recessed. I used needle nose pliers:


This shows the top board and where we want to solder the switch wires. A momentary switch is used for this mod.
Lets call the pads where the standard switch is wired 1,2,3,4,5, and 6, left to right, top to bottom

Lets find a place to put the jack...
I choose the back because there is loads of room there.
Be careful when drilling this hole out. I usually use 1 inch wide masking tape to form a sort of a bucket to catch the chips. Then blow it out with canned air to remove any remaining chips


Jack mounted and wires ready to be soldered...
NOW...BEFORE YOU JUMP RIGHT IN...NOTE..DO NOT USE THE GROUND CONNECTION.
I used a stereo jack. like you would use for headphones. And used the tip and ring connections.
Its all I had laying around


Wires soldered in. Per solder pad assignments, I used 3 and 6.
Pads 1,2, and 3 are already connected to each other. 4 and 6 are connected together. Pad 5 doesn't seem to go anywhere as far as I can tell.
Not my best work, but it does work



All that is left to do is button everything up and you are done.



The only Momentary switch I had was a cheap POS switch I got at Ratshack. Probably will break after 2 or 3 stomps

Have fun

Cool. Been thinking about grabbing a Nova Delay for a small board using the stuff not on my main board. The mod looks useful as hell.

Fryette Ultra Lead
Peavey 6505
THD Flexi 50

Gibson R0 Prototype

Very useful for my needs.
Much easier to go into preset mod too.
Actually, that was the main reason I did this one.

Tap tempo mod plox?
I wonder how similar it would be for the tap tempo mod on a nova repeater

See the first picture of the guts?
Just wire to the switch on the right side.
I'm guessing the Repeater has the tap tempo button in the same location.
