Man.. I do like Empress Effects.Â I’m a lucky guy to say that I own a Empress Effects Vintage Superdelay. Amazing! But the thing I’ve been eyeballing lately.. is the Empress Tape Delay. Seems like all the things I love about the Vintage Superdelay, but small enclosure. Now let’s combine the Empress Tape Delay with one of my favorite demo guys – Just Nick.. boom, just like that.. the pavlov effect.
As you can see and hear, this things sounds really good. I love the simpler controls. The smaller footprint, and almost all the delay effects that I personally like to use with the Superdelay is available here. Obviously the Superdelay can do much more, but if you’re looking for a real tasty analog-voiced delay (this is digital) with some great options, this might be the ticket.
If you’re interested in the Empress Tape Delay, it can be yours for $249 (and I found a bundle deal at Amazon – includes 2 free patch cables and 2 free instrument cables)

Just a small correction: both empress delays are digital, not analog. they’re analog voiced, but neither of them use BBD chips. I was looking at both their delays, and I think that if i was going to get one, it’d definitely be the super delay. Just for the fact that it can do everything the tape delay can do, plus a ton more, for only 100$ more. I think you made a good choice, and unless you wanted to sell the super delay, there is no point to buying a tape delay, unless you wanted to be able to run double tape delay sounds at the same time, while using the superdelay and tape delay, which i’m sure would sound phenomenal.Reply
