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.
