    Comments about Empress Effects Analog Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

    Well I am not sure if my first review made it but if it did I apologize if it didn't better. I called it cold like Canada. After further review and comparing to a few others. I come to appreciate the versatility this pedal offers others fall short. First have a wah pedal?? Well this works with it. Have an overdrive in front. Well you can stack. Need to turn it down it cleans up well. 5 stars. Low noise operation.

      Comments about Empress Effects Analog Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

      It almost made it in my board but it seemed to sterile. I don't know but something about empress effects and me. I tried the compressor, tape delay and now the fuzz. All well built. Solid. But they seem cold. I find this quite a bit with Canadian electronic. To some they may find that appealing. It definitely has versatility and can go from slight fuzz to full roar. Perhaps to someone that plays on stage it's perfect fit. For recording it's just not to my taste.

        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!
