olivier.lebihan's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a very good transparent compressor"

Empress Effects Compressor
The + important has already been said. For a guitarist, it swells very attacks input your chain effect, and the job done as well limiter at the end of the chain, to keep your sound in a limited dynamic range, while keeping the definition. The price difference is justified, it is not a "box crush her!" . If you push it to its limits, we notice its presence, but it's still very good, in any case much better than the boss compressors of the same size.


so far, especially live


works like a compressor


If the budget / need follow is to make a purchase without hesitation.

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" High quality"

Empress Effects Compressor
Empress Effects has a compressor pedal 100% analog handmade in Canada.
Comes with instructions in English and mostly sticker empress effect.
True bypass
9 or 18V


ratio 2/1, 4/1, 10/1


This robust housing sector is supplied only on (and yes you will need a power supply). But beware it can be plugged in 9V 18V but that is a huge plus for a compressor pedal.
It has three types of ratio (to choose a more or less strong compression): Light 2:1, 4:1 normal, 10:1 high.
It has an attack control (switching speed 50us - 50ms) and release (speed of return to its normal 50ms - 1 sec).
A huge advantage is the control mix for mixing the signal with the compressed normal signal in parallel, This will keep a little, a lot or not at all sound like it was before the treaty by the compression.
And like most high quality compressor and above rack can be adjusted precisely its treatment through the system LED which indicates the input level, compression and interaction of both.


What can I say except: Transparency, not breathing or buzz, is very good at her job.


For the model tested and bought No. 89 I can say that this pedal is very high quality, very transparent and above all not doing his job only half done. I had several back on the compressor, they have been all very positif.Pour me this is one of the best compressor pedal on the market today but beware it is a transparent compressor, it does not color the sound at all . So those looking for a compressor that adds a color other pedals it ia much more appropriate.

To retain the Empress compressor: 9 or 18V
Control mix
High quality
Use of guitar and bass
Give stickers (well what? ...)
