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!
