Are you someone that's always striving to enhance your tone? It's time to un-leash the power of the Empress ParaEQ w/Boost on your instrument - sadly, it may piss you off that you haven't been using it for years.
Most Beta testers were not excited to test this pedal for us - it didn't have the bells and whistles of the superdelay… but they were pleasantly surprised. Here are a few comments:
I'm beginning to dislike my clean tone without this pedal on.
- Ian, electric guitar player.
Wow, the eq is the best I've heard in a pedal. It out-performs my _______ eq and I'm able to get a huge variety of tones. I also love that it's so small
- Jake, upright bass player and recording engineer.
What's been really nice about this pedal is how fast I can get to really nice sounds with it. I wasn't expecting that. I was expecting to have to hunt for a while. That's been my experience with DAW-based para eq plugins. Not so with the pedal. It's very quick to sweep and find a sweet frequency spot, both cutting and boosting.
- Peter, guitar player.
Design PhilosophyThe Empress ParaEq w/Boost is designed to be a simple device that does its job extremely well. We noticed that the EQ section of many instrument amplifiers offer a very limited range of control. We designed the Empress ParaEq w/Boost to give musicians a powerful, musical, high quality EQ in a conveniently small package. The signal path of the ParaEq w/Boost is comprised of the highest quality components chosen for their transparency, powerful tone shaping capabilities, and low operating noise. With the Empress ParaEq w/Boost your instrument will still sound like your instrument, only better.

|2015-12-12||wiendahl||10/10||fantastic parametric eq, really great sound, 30 db boost, i leave it on all the time, and sometimes boost treble or cut mids.||can't use the boost without turning on the eq, although this has been fixed in later versions.|
