Empress Effects Tape Delay Pedal


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!

Special Order / Out of Stock / Backorders

We work hard with our third party providers to offer a full selection of products available for purchase online. As such, not every product listed will be in stock at our warehouse. If your order must be shipped from a secondary warehouse, we will notify you immediately. Most orders not in stock are still received by the customer within 6-10 days (depending on your location).

If an item is out of stock, or a lead time is posted on the product's description, you may still purchase the item at your convenience. As soon as the item becomes available we will notify you that your order has shipped. In the event that an item is back ordered, we will notify you of the delay. You may choose to wait for the item to become available or simply cancel your order. If an order is cancelled, we will promptly refund your payment.
