Overview

Rich, lush tape delay in an incredibly small box. 3 flavors of tape age let you choose how dark and gritty the repeats will get while filter and modulation controls allow for even more fine tuning. Tap tempos with ratio multiplier mean rhythms like dotted eights are all at your fingertips.

Now with an analog dry path, the Tape Delay is packed with features, all accessible from the advanced configuration mode. Presets can store all your settings and be recalled at the touch of a button, making switching live fast and easy.

Features
  • Killer Sound Quality - The Signal to Noise ratio is around 103 dB
  • Tap Tempo with Ratios - Use tap tempo to set the Tape Delays speed; the ratio selection makes fast tempos and triplet based phase times easy
  • True Bypass and Trails. - The Empress Tape Delay Pedal employs true bypass, or you can choose to use buffered bypass with trails
  • Small Size - The enclosure measures approximately 4.5" by 3.5" by 1.5", which is delightfully small when considering all the features packed into this unit
  • Analog Dry - The dry signal path is all analog
  • Advanced Configuration - let you customize the tape delay to suit your needs
  • Blips - Activate blips to get crazy sounds when you move the tape head around while playing
  • Presets - Advanced configuration allow you to run with 0, 2 or 3 presets
  • Relay Bypass - Using a relay for bypass means quieter switching and, if the pedal loses power, your signal will still pass unharmed
  • Filter - Hi pass or low pass the delayed signal
  • Modulation - Add a little or a lot of modulation, or none at all!
  • Four Year Warranty - The Empress Tape Delay Pedal comes with a two-year warranty. Read our Warranty for details. You can extend the warranty to 4 years by simply registering online

    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.
