Hello

Ive been playing guitar for a while but i have never bought any pedals. I have a Fender Squier Showmaster and a Peavey Classic 50. Im thinking about getting the nova drive pedal. I mostly play in my church's worship band but we like to crunch it up a bit. Would this be a good or bad pedal for me to get? Ive seen videos and review and it looks really good. I havent had time to go try it out at a store but i can get it pretty cheap off of amazon. What's your guy's opinion on it, and your opinion on it combined with my gear?

I think it would be a perfect fit. I use my ND1 in the exact same situation (church/school worship band). The distortion side will crunch nicely, and the overdrive just puts it "there," if you know what I mean. I feed it into my Mesa's clean channel and work from there. It's great.
How much is it on Amazon? I managed (after a lot of patience) to get a new one off of ebay for $110. If you don't need it immediately, try to watch ebay for a while.

I can get it for 190 after shipping. I'm not really in to ebay...i don't really have the patience to wait and bid.

To be honest, $190 isn't really one of those "jump on it" prices for the ND1, as they for for $190-$200 all day (new, buy it now) on ebay. But if you need it quickly, and you can't find a better price anywhere, and you're willing to pay $190 (which I'm assuming you are, considering you're even looking at the pedal), go for it. It's a great pedal, and it hasn't disappointed me yet.

I've been looking around and i cant find it for anything cheaper than that even on ebay, new at least.

Then, if you're willing, go for it.
