Man.. I do like Empress Effects. 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)
