Features & Specifications
The Empress Tap Tremolo is an original design built from the
ground up to include innovative features without sacrificing tone. The
audio signal path is analog, but the tremolo effect is controlled
digitally via opto technology.
- Pristine Sound - The Empress Tap Tremolo
Pedal has to be heard to be believed. It's whisper quiet and free from
the "LFO throb" usually associated with tremolos. We dare anyone to find
a better sounding tremolo.
- Waveform Selection - You can modulate your
sound with three different waveforms. An asymmetrical tremolo was
modelled after a '65 Fender Vibrolux (brown face) to give you the
fullest tremolo sound possible. A square wave can be utilized if you're
after a harder sound. And if you're looking for a more normal tremolo,
you can use the triangle wave setting.
- Tap Tempo - The Empress Tap Tremolo Pedal
averages your last four taps so it plays in sync with your music. You
can also choose different tap to tremolo rate ratios. 1:1, 1:2, and 1:4
- Two Speed Mode - An exclusive feature to the
Empress Trem. You're able to set two different rates, and switch between
them using the tap tempo stompswitch. This is similar to playing
through a Leslie cabinet and changing the speed.
- Rhythms - Another exclusive feature. The
Empress Trem will definiately do your run-of-the-mill tremolo sound to a
tee. But you can also set it to play different rhythms. Check out the
soundclips for examples.
- Gain - A problem with most tremolos on the
market is that when they're engaged, you hear a noticeable drop in
volume. The Empress Trem solves this by having a gain stage on the
output. It's able to deliver up to 6dB of gain without adding any
distortion to the signal.
- True Bypass - The Empress Trem employs true bypass, so you can be sure that it's not affecting the signal when disengaged.
- Perfect 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.
- 45 Day Money Back Guarantee - If for any
reason the Tremolo isn't for you, send it back within 45 days for a
refund. Read our Guarantee for more details. This guarantee does not
cover Empress products not bought from www.empresseffects.com.
- Two Year Warranty - The Empress Tremolo comes
with a two-year warranty. Read our Warranty for details. You can extend
the warranty to 4 years by simply registering online.

blend of quality and innovation, will retail on empresseffects.com and
