Realistic simulations of spaces, as well as never-before-heard surreal ambiences are represented with stunning sound quality. Sporting stereo ins and outs, a small footprint and all the controls at your finger-tips, the Empress Effects Reverb strikes the perfect balance of control and ease of use, avoiding laborious menus. Presets, the versatile control port, and MIDI open up a world of possibilities for live performances. Whether you’re looking for a classic spring, realistic room or new sonic flavors to expand your creativity,  this pedal delivers. And….it’s got a beer mode!


  • 32 studio quality algorithms as of firmware 6.0 and counting – The pedal has 12 algorithm types, some include multiple variations. For example, vintage and studio plate, dark and bright springs. Also, as more algorithms get added you can update your pedal via the SD Card. It’s the pedal that keeps on giving.
  • Pristine Classic Sounds – pristine sounding classic hall, plate, spring and room sounds that rival or surpass studio units costing many times more.
  • Ambient Sounds – A complete palette of tweak-able ambient sounds that offer the creative player so much territory to explore and make their own.
  • Looper – The Reverb contains a multitrack looper which can record loops up to 10 minutes. The looper is available in firmware version 5.03 and up (requires SD Card, purchased separately)
  • CV input (via Control Port) – With CV control, the Empress Reverb responds to CV signals from 0 to 5 volts. Otherwise, the CV configuration works exactly like the expression pedal configuration. This can be set in the Advanced Configuration Menu
  • SD Card slot – for updating firmware, saving/loading presets, using the Looper (NOTE: SD Card must be purchased separately)
  • Easy to use and fast to dial in – All the algorithm controls are sitting on a knob in front of you, no fiddling through laborious menus.
  • Tap Functions – many algorithms have infinite hold settings or the ability to tap in delay time.
  • Low Noise signal path – Features a signal to noise ratio of >104dB and maintains an analog dry path.
  • Up to 35 Presets – Settings can be saved to 35 presets. With three stomp switches, accessing the presets is easy.
  • 2 Preset Modes – Bank style or scrolling style preset modes.
  • True Bypass and Buffered Bypass – It can be configured to run with true bypass or buffered bypass if you want to hear trails.
  • Cabinet Simulator – 3 variations to choose from, perfect for recording, practicing or for gigs without an amp.
  • Output Transformer – Get hum-free operation when operating in stereo with two amps. Output 2 is isolated with a transformer to eliminate nasty ground loops.
  • High Quality Audio – 48kHz sampling, with 24 bit conversion and 32 bit internal processing.
  • Analog Dry Path – Dry signal is left untouched, and blended with the wet signal using VCA. (no zipper noise, hooray!)
  • Unsurpassed Connectivity – The Universal Control Port allows you to connect an expression pedal, external tap switch, control voltage, external audio input and MIDI – all using a standard 1/4″ jack!
  • Advanced Configuration Menu – The Advanced configuration menu lets you configure how your reverb works. Select from true or buffered bypass, 0-35 presets, MIDI configuration, Control port control (expression pedal, external tap, control voltage and MIDI) as well as which style of preset system to use, input signal pad, output transformer enable and more!
  • Small Size – The enclosure measures approximately 5.7″ by 3.75″ by 1.75″, which is delightfully small when considering all the features packed into this unit.
