Comments about Empress Effects Tape Delay Guitar Effects Pedal:
Empress has put together a fantastic pedal. I'll keep this short and succinct, this tape delay has everything and can be utilized for any genre of music. Starting with the sound, this pedal can mimic three separate tape machines: machine w/ new tape, machine w/ old tape and a vintage tape sound. The new tape sound is AWESOME. It has very pristine repeats and sounds great for U2 ish like tones (I.e. Where streets have no name can be accomplished very well with this setting). The old tape has more analogue-ish, darker repeats while the vintage setting has some added modulation (chorus-like effect) which is fantastic. You can also add modulation to any tape effect--which adds modulation to your repeats-- as well as high pass and low pass filtering--which gives your repeats some added character. The tap tempo is very responsive and the repeat ratio dial adjusts your repeats to whatever is needed (yes it does dotted 8th notes very well). It is also very responsive on the mix knob. It can go from 0% to 100% wet. Overall, I'm very particular about my gear and I researched all of the quality delay pedals available (strymon el Capistan, earthquake delays, chase bliss tonal recall, wampler tape echo) and this delay pedal is the one. It sounds absolutely amazing and works very well with other pedals (distortion, reverb, etc). With the 3 presets available, the awesome price tag and the free 4 year warranty, this is a quality deal for an outstanding delay pedal.
Summary: Best sounding delay pedal I've ever used. Easy to manipulate the sounds and pairs great with other pedals.
