I actually ended up with a Blackstar HT-20 after trying it out from your recommendation on a previous thread (the 40 was simply not practical with my car/flat)....and it sounds great. I have been using the Nova in the loop, but currently I have really downsized and I am running the Nova straight into a Blues Junior and it is awesome. I really did miss the nova drive section and the compressor and this method seems to work perfectly! Perhaps in the future they will release one where you can access the drive, but then again that is the G system or a Nova System with added Nova drive!
