  • New Empress Delay (sorta)

    Looks like they've boxed up the Tape Mode from the VMSD and put it in a smaller package:



    My gut reaction is to wonder why they bothered to strip this out, only to leave the (limited) filtering, age and modulation controls the same.

    Otherwise

      I could see the use for it. I liked the Superdelay but never had any use for the presets. If you didn't use any of the special effects, then I could see the point of this. Especially if it's under $300 to beat the El Cap.

            I think this is the key. I'm going to assume that it'll be priced @ $250 like the compressor, tremolo and ParaEQ... any more than that though, and I think they'll have missed it.

            Interesting idea though. Makes me wonder how successful the 'breakout-boxed' dirt pedals from the Multidrive actually were, now that they're doing this w/ the delay.

              all i ever used on the superdelay was the tape mode so i can see why they did this. price better be 199 or less or its pointless though.

                I wish they'd box up the superdelay's reverse mode.

                  Looks like an input/output buffer, boost and noise suppressor in a single pedal.

                    i've actually thought Empress should do this, as mostly this was the only mode I ever used. So $225is would be cool. But I gotta say, lately I've been using the regular delay mode on my Headrush, with the tone filter at noonish, and I get this really nice almost tape like delay fading quality. Actually think I prefer it to the El Cap, sounds less over the top and synthetic at the same time.

                    I think Empress will sell some of these though. The Superdelay just seems so pricey now at full retail.

                      its a good move on their part, but if you think its going to be less than 300 bones, you are crazy.

                        And if they think they will sell many (or any) going over $300 is a big mistake.

                            If the SD is $450 I don't see how are they going to price it at $200. I guess $250-300 to compete with El Capistan.

                              Probably. But, the market seems a bit saturated now with tape like delays. The Skreddy Echo is still considered one of the best, Montevillain is a solid contender, DMB Echo, etc.
