OdysseyV's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" GOOD EFFECT"

Empress Effects Superdelay Vintage Modified
My last pedal acquired from empress.

Pedal: Delay of up to 2.8 seconds to 8 programmable channels with 8 modes with a tap tempo and looper 12 seconds, a high-pass filter or low-pass selector offering two modulations and the possibility of connect an expression pedal to control the mix or feedback. This release brings improvements to the types of Old and Vintage Tape mode, bringing them more or less acute modulation.

Made in canada, handmade.


The configuration is simple.

Editing sounds is clear

The manual is in English.

My connection is as follows:


2 - In wha wha

3-Out wha wha

4-In isp Decimator guitar chanel 1 (noise gate)

5 - Out isp to head marshall afd

6 - Out effect

7 - In two isp chanel

8 - Out isp to out of the effects loop

9 - Return of the loop effect to effect in your head.

As stated in previous reviews you full of fashion. In my case I use the auto or normal.


It is therefore the empress top quality, before I had tc électronic delay. Between the two model there is no photo. The great advantage of the empress is such that is preset.

In my case I have 3 presets:

A short

A way

A long delay extrat to U2.

This pedal is a multi-style, you will find your sound. In addition you can set the level you want with the MIX knob. Either dry or no effect. Stronger or weaker with the LEVEL knob.


This is a good product, honéreux, but certe in an effects loop allows it all out. The presets on stage are an asset to your advantage.

I positioned the end of the loop.

Empress of the brand, the best pedal is in my opinion the compressor. I'm not a amarteur of delays, but I'm sure the fan delay long to find it in the product search.

Empress Effects Superdelay Vintage Modified
Digital delay pedal handmade in Canada
8 modes configurable with 3 "sub-modes" each
Were respectively
- Delay-called "normal" a short delay, a means, a long
- Tap Tempo Delay
- Delay Auto Set
- Reverse mode (I have not yet had time to look more deeply into this mode, I'll come back later)
- A rhythmic delay
- A simulation of old tape delay
Misc-function which can lead to more uses psykés
-And finally a looper.
It available
This pedal offers therefore a wide range of all its exploitable my September 1st I was not perfection in this world ..


The number of knob and switch can scare some at first glance but nothing too bad ..
The sound editing is simple,

A mix knob, one for setting the length of the delay, one for the feedback, a mode selector and a volume can serve as a general boost.
The mini switch is a real plus for this pedal: one that allows you to apply filters (high-pass or low-pass or no)
To assign an expression pedal to control the mix or that the feedback effect of the foot.
Modulation to add a more or less pronounced
And a final to select the "sub-modes".
It can save a preset by mode (damage should be limited to two pedal power all operate live)


I think the sound quality is good, special mention for the modes "tape" and misc which I think are the real advantages of this pedal.
Regarding the standard mode and tap time, I find that the quality of the repetitions is a bit worse than a T-Rex Replica for example. (Matter of taste perhaps)
Good but otherwise it's all good, most captious without problems the delay of their choice, either by applying filters and modulations.


I use it for almost 4 months, I have not done the trick, I'll come back.
This pedal is designed for musicians who are "inspired by their pedals" as the Empress said ..
Psykés uses more than welcome me its me going ;)
Again I think the sound quality of Delays "standards" are a bit below a Replica.
The guitarists who want a simple delay, plug n play, go your ways, other bah try before you buy
Hopefully my advice will be useful, I'll fill with time

elcotone's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent delay!"

Empress Effects Superdelay Vintage Modified
So it's a digital delay pedal, where the quality of delay is very good, very hot.
A footswitch that turns on or not
Another change to the preset (8 total)
Mini button to save the settings.
And a tap tempo.
For greater clarity I invite you to go to the site of Empress Effects!


At first glance the numbers of buttons / knobs can be scary but the pedal is very easy to adjust, after finding his sound is another story.
There are 8 modes in each mode and a mini three-position switch allows for varying 3 parameters in each mode.
Put a mini switch for modulation more or less pronounced in the delay.
A mini switch for a treble filter pass and low pass.
And a final to select which parameter you want to assign a pedal EXP.
on the other hand, as is true bypass when off the delay pedal stops, it's too bad seen the price of the beast.


So I bought this delay especially for simulations band. My time I could never listen to a real tape delay in my young life, but the sound comes out of this pedal is a heat! To give you an idea go watch videos on youtube site ProGuitarShop.
Special mention for the reverse mode with the delay increases to C an octave higher with feedback thoroughly the effect will be even more pronounced. Accompanied by a deep reverb rendering is very beautiful!
In any case the delay will be hot, very vintage.


Despite some concern to me that delay is perfect.
I never thought I could have it but fate has decided otherwise!
Purchased with a U.S. dollar interest I made a saving of 130 € on the Empress. This is not negligible = D
In any event for lovers of fine vintage delay pedal that will do an excellent job!

The next will be the last born from Strymon the timeline, but also expensive with its a bit more "fuck" and always with beautiful simulations band that I've seen videos.
