Empress Effects Tape Delay

The Tape Delay from Empress Effects is a retro style tape-emulation delay for all the rich and lush delay tones made my classic tape delays. There are three different settings for "tape age" providing more lo-fi type delays as the tape gets "older." It also as the ability to synchronize to tap tempos, something no tape delay of the past could accomplish. A bank of presets allows one's favorite tones to be accessed with the touch of a button. 

Tape Delay Features

  • Killer Sound Quality - The Signal to Noise ratio is around 103 dB
  • Tap Tempo with Ratios - Use tap tempo to set the Tape Delays speed; the ratio selection makes fast tempos and triplet based phase times easy
  • True Bypass and Trails. - The Empress Tape Delay Pedal employs true bypass, or you can choose to use buffered bypass with trails
  • Small 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
  • Analog Dry - The dry signal path is all analog
  • Advanced Configuration - let you customize the tape delay to suit your needs
  • Blips - Activate blips to get crazy sounds when you move the tape head around while playing
  • Presets - Advanced configuration allow you to run with 0, 2 or 3 presets
  • Relay Bypass - Using a relay for bypass means quieter switching and, if the pedal loses power, your signal will still pass unharmed
  • Filter - Hi pass or low pass the delayed signal
  • Modulation - Add a little or a lot of modulation, or none at all!
  • Four Year Warranty - The Empress Tape Delay Pedal comes with a two-year warranty. Read our Warranty for details. You can extend the warranty to 4 years by simply registering online
