OVERVIEW

A compact and powerful delay that offers a multitude of tonal options.

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:

    I was looking for a delay with a tap tempo button to replace my Boss DD-7. The empress tape delay is a nice compact pedal with some cool options for sub-dividing the tap. It sounds good, but I didn't really find a good use for the chorusy tape emulation sounds, and to me it didn't seem to have the clarity of the DD-7 when those features are disabled. One thing that was odd that was that there was a slight static pulse that I could hear through the amp even when the pedal was disabled. I imagine that this has something to do with the feature to have the delay fade out after the pedal is dis-engaged, and the pedal does provide an option to disable that feature (see the manual), which will probably remedy the issue. I ended up exchanging this for the TC Electronic Flashback Triple Delay, which I managed to get some nicer tones out of, and also has way more options including running up to three delays at once. Overall not a bad pedal though if you want something that's got a smaller footprint with good tape delay emulation.
