Empress Effects introduces two new guitar pedals at Summer NAMM 2013 in Nashville, the highly expected Nebulus and Heavy.
We recently talked about the Nebulus multi-effect pedal on Audiofanzine (see this news), for Empress Effects was asking you to name it. It is now done and Summer NAMM visitors are now able to see this multi-effect pedal that combines chorus, flanger and vibrato, each with three variations (9 possibilities in total), with an 8 presets internal memory for quick saving and recall.
Each mode features a Special switch that allows for further setting adjustments ; you can, for instance, add compression to the vibrato.
Other controls include Mix, Rate, Depth and Output knobs, a 3-way Tone switch and a true bypass.
The other pedal unveiled today by Empress Effects is the dual distortion called Heavy, the canadian manufacturer’s first realization in the high gain range. Heavy features two footswitchable channels (Heavy and Heavier), each with its own gain and output knobs, a 3-way switch for the built-in gate (off, natural and aggressive) as well as a Weight knob that can be used to change the low-end character of the effect. A 3-band EQ is also included with two mids knobs.
Both pedals are hand made in Canada and will be available this summer. Pricing is still to be announced and full details will soon be available at www.empresseffects.com.
