Empress Delay
18.10.2014
This pedal is something special.
It's extremely versatile, with a range of features I wouldn't usually expect; such as presets, blips and blops, adjustable headroom and delay cut off to prevent discordant chords' delay running into each other.
It's smaller and lighter than i expected which is very welcome.
The sound is stunning, providing everything from clean repeats to a modulated ambience. Brilliant quality of sound and design. Though you'd rather expect that for the price...

My only word of warning is she's a very thirsty pedal - 9v 280mA, which is more than many standard board PSUs give out, and doesn't come with a PSU of its own.

Karl-Erik, 13.02.2015
I have gutter with this for about anyway now and I must say it makes good on all of Empress promises. It's very easy and intuitive to use and does sound like an old echoplex. You can dial in the amount of modulation and simulated tape age as well as tap tempo and up to 3 presets. This box also has analog dry through, as smart feature found in some high end digital pedals. What this means is that your guitar signal passes through untouched and retains it's sound. The effect is simple added in parallel to it. For you this means superior audio quality and a pure signal path. You can also choose between trur bypass and buffered bypass. Buffer is good and comes in handy with longish cable runs.
