OVERVIEW

The perfect pedal for the heavy riff shredder.

In this aptly named box you'll find a huge range of killer high gain tones. From crisp, mid-driven '80s metal, to scooped, modern down-tuned brutality, this little box of sonic mayhem does it all.

The two independent channels can be voiced similarly so that one channel can be used as a solo boost, or they can be voiced entirely differently by using the mid-range control in conjunction with the 3-position mid-frequency select switch. Add in separate weight controls to shape the low end response of each channel, and a global hi/low eq section that allows you to fine tune your particular amp and cab combination, and you've got a serious tool to create a supremely heavy sounding rig.

On top of all this Empress added an extremely responsive and hassle-free noise gate that will ensure dead silent operation with even the most obscene amounts of gain added.

FEATURES
  • All Analog Signal Path - no digitals in here
  • Super High Gain - It's called the heavy, what'd you expect?
  • Weight - An intuitive new control that changes the character of your low end
  • 3 Band EQ - Selectable mid frequency lets you get precise EQ curves, with boost or cut up to 10dB per band
  • Dual Channel Design - Heavy and Heavier let you set your channels similarly, for rhythm/solo, or completely differently for a wider range of tones
  • Soft Touch Switches - Relay bypass and intelligent switching make this pedal super easy to use
  • Noise Gate - Natural and aggressive settings let you tailor the gate to your needs, keeping noise out of your signal chain
  • True Bypass - The Empress Heavy employs true bypass, so you can be sure that it's not affecting the signal when disengaged

      Comments about Empress Effects Heavy Dual-Channel Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I bought this pedal because the distortion built into my head really just kinda sucked. So i decided to experiment with pedals and ended up getting a mxr fullbore metal pedal and that thing had no balls.. when i got this IMMEDIATELY i was impressed! Built like a tank and could take a beating.. if you're a metal musician looking to find a distortion pedal with BALLS this is your pedal!
