Don't Forget

A massively versatile reverb for any need.

Realistic simulations of spaces, as well as never-before-heard surreal ambiances are represented with stunning sound quality. Sporting stereo ins and outs, a small footprint and all the controls at your finger-tips, it strikes the perfect balance of control and ease of use, avoiding laborious menus. Presets, the versatile control port, and MIDI open up a world of possibilities for live performances. Whether you're looking for a classic spring, realistic room or new sonic flavors to expand your creativity, this pedal delivers.

24 studio quality algorithms and counting
The pedal has 12 algorithm types, some include multiple variations. For example, vintage and studio plate, dark and bright springs. Also, as more algorithms get added you can update your pedal via the SD Card. It's the pedal that keeps on giving.

Pristine Classic Sounds
Pristine sounding classic hall, plate, spring and room sounds that rival or surpass studio units costing many times more.

Ambient Sounds
A complete palette of tweak-able ambient sounds that offer the creative player so much territory to explore and make their own.

Easy to Use 
All the algorithm controls are sitting on a knob in front of you, no fiddling through laborious menus.

Tap Functions
Many algorithms have infinite hold settings or the ability to tap in delay time.

Low-Noise Signal Path
Features a signal to noise ratio of >104dB and maintains an analog dry path.

Up to 35 Presets
Settings can be saved to 35 presets. With three stomp switches, accessing the presets is easy.

2 Preset Modes
Bank style or scrolling style preset modes.

True Bypass and Buffered Bypass
It can be configured to run with true bypass or buffered bypass if you want to hear trails.

Cabinet Simulator
3 variations to choose from, perfect for recording, practicing or for gigs without an amp.

Output Transformer
Get hum-free operation when operating in stereo with two amps. Output 2 is isolated with a transformer to eliminate nasty ground loops.

High-Quality Audio
48kHz sampling, with 24 bit conversion and 32 bit internal processing.

Analog Dry Path
Dry signal is left untouched, and blended with the wet signal using VCA.

Unsurpassed Connectivity
The Universal Control Port allows you to connect an expression pedal, external tap switch, control voltage, external audio input and MIDI—all using a standard 1/4-in. jack

Advanced Configuration Menu
The Advanced configuration menu lets you configure how your reverb works. Select from true or buffered bypass, 0-35 presets, MIDI configuration, Control port control(expression pedal, external tap, control voltage and MIDI) as well as which style of preset system to use, input signal pad, output transformer enable and more

Small Size
The enclosure measures approximately 5.7" by 3.75" by 1.75", which is delightfully small when considering all the features packed into this unit.

    Comments about Empress Effects Reverb Effects Pedal:

    Wow. I had just bought a Hall of Fame Reverb before I ordered this. I thought I would use the Empress for the wild stuff (ghost, lofi, swell) and Hall of Fame would be my go to for spring and traditional reverbs. After I played the Empress I immediately put the Hall of Fame for sale online. The spring, studio, room, and hall reverbs on this sound like studio quality reverbs. The Hall of Fame couldn't touch it in regards to clarity. In comparison to the Empress the HoF seemed to slightly damper my tone. I A/B'd extensively and the Empress sounds more realistic and doesn't damper the highs of the dry signal. My guitar with the pedal off sounds exactly the same through the Empress but with Reverb behind it. With the HoF my guitar sounds slightly darker with rolled off highs. No crispness like the Empress. I'd put this against a Strymon any day of the week. Not to mention it has saveable presets, stereo in and out, and it can be updated via SD card firmware updates. I've yet to dive into the full features but this is a keeper and will NEVER leave my board.

    Now forget you read this review because I should be the only person with Reverb this good....

      Comments about Empress Effects Reverb Effects Pedal:

      Over the last 20 years I have used a large variety of reverb pedals. This replaced them all. Amazing versatility and sound quality. This is an ambient and experimental guitarists dream pedal. You get what you pay for and you won't be disappointed. I can't recommend this pedal enough.
