    Comments about Empress Effects Analog Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I've had mine since February and I absolutely love it. The Bass and Treble controls are very responsive and are very good in helping to achieve some classic fuzz tones. Touch sensitive and responds to your instrument's volume knob very well. It has a ton of gain on tap. Lower settings sound real nice too. Plays well with other pedals. Sounds great with humbuckers and single coils. If you're looking for a great fuzz pedal you need to check out the Empress Fuzz!

    Comments about Empress Effects Analog Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

    Very cool fuzz with excellent build quality. The EQ controls are very responsive and are really helpful in shaping all the different tones. With some experimentation you can get it in the ball park of some classic sounds. If you dial back the Treble and Bass controls it really allows the Mid frequencies pop which sounds excellent in the mix.

    The Empress Fuzz is unique in that it has a tighter bottom end that doesn't get as flubby as most traditional fuzzes tend to. I really like that. There is still some sag especially with the fuzz maxed out. But that's fine since it wouldn't feel like a true fuzz without it.

    Unlike most stomp boxes the Empress Fuzz must be powered by an MXR -type, negative-center-pin, AC adapter. Batteries are not an option and Empress doesn't supply a suitable adapter. I know this will bother some folks. Especially those who run their effects on battery power. For me it's not a problem since I stopped using batteries years ago. I can tell you that good people at Empress informed me that it can run on any voltage up to 18V. They said they wanted to give players as much flexibility as possible. I'm looking forward to finding out what it has to offer.
