“The Empress is a three-dimensional modulation machine, and when you couple its vast array of sounds with absolutely wicked construction – and some cool graphics – you’ve got one of the drippiest sounding chorus/vibrato pedals ever made.” (Guitar Player, May 2008, Empress Chorus)
Not just any ordinary analog chorus/Vibe pedal.........
The Empress offers unparalleled chorus options; an infinite number of analog chorus/vibe devices in one box...
Her most enticing feature is the unique voicing control;
this dial allows you to access virtually any chorus sound you could desire! It changes the delay time – it’s on a pot so you’ve got an infinite number of chorus pedals in one box – from super spanky sparkling clean to noisy, sea-sick inducing, pitch bending wobble.
We’ve designed a circuit that lets you adjust the delay time via a potentiometer – from one extreme to the other and everything in between. In it’s most extreme settings the device will produce some hiss – this would be expected within the last third of the voicing controls sweep.
