The Empress Tape Delay is the reward for two years of research and development creating the perfect effect. An all-analog dry path and an extensive, innovative set of controls gives you fantastic sound with exceptional versatility. An array of 3-way selector switches works with the controls to recreate virtually any tape delay effect you can imagine. The Tape Age Selector gives you the clean sound of new tape, the warbling, natural modulation of vintage tape, or the warm, compressed sound of old tape and worn heads. The Delay Time Selector gives you a fast mode with 5 to 256 milliseconds of delay, a slow mode with 128 milliseconds to 2.8 seconds of delay or a Tap Tempo mode that works with the Delay Time/Ratio control to multiply your manually selected rate. The Tap Tempo switch works in both fast and slow modes to clear the delay lines, freeing the effect for more expressive uses unavailable to other delay pedals.

The latest pedal from Empress is called the Nebulus which is a Chorus, Vibrato and Flanger pedal in one, but that’s not all, it has 3 submodes per effect and the Vibrato effect has a Vibe and Rotary submode so much more than just the kind of wobbly pitch Vibrato effect you might be thinking of.
