Empress Effects (June 6, 2013)

We have a new pedal almost finished.  The only thing left is to name it!

It's a chorus, vibrato and flanger pedal all in one that will have 9 total modes with extra goodies like rotary speaker, vibe and tremolo'd chorus.  It will have presets, soft touch switches and an analog dry path.  Of course it will also be true bypass.

The Name Candidates:

  • Modus

  • Nebulus

Empress Effects (press release, July 11, 2013)

OTTAWA — July 11, 2013 - After some intense voting via Facebook over the past few weeks, the Empress Effects faithful have dubbed Empress' newest creation Nebulus. This pedal brings guitarists high quality chorus, flanger and vibrato effects in a compact 4.5 by 3.5 inch pedal. To increase the tone range even further 3 variations on each effect are available for a total of 9 tweak-able modes. All this flexibility is easy to access via a preset system capable of storing up to 8 different presets.

The chorus mode offers a lush and warm sounding chorus, a fluid and dreamy multichorus, and a unique tremolo'ed chorus. The flanger setting has a classic tape flange, a 70's negative feedback flanger, and the elusive thru-zero flange. Lastly, but certainly not least, are the vibrato sub-modes which include a standard vibrato, a classic vibe sound, and a rotating speaker effect.

Each mode includes a special switch which allows the guitarist to really tweak settings that are crucial and it also offers some bonus features like the ability to add compression to vibrato mode, for example. For further fine tuning, a tone switch is available offering warm, clean, and bright voicings to the effect.

This true bypass pedal offers the uncompromising sound quality that guitarists have learned to expect from Empress pedals in a very small package. With chorus, flanger and vibrato all only one touch away, this pedal is an incredible value.

The Empress Nebulus will be available late this summer.
