OVERVIEW
When we released our original Compressor back in 2011, it quickly became a favourite among guitar and bass players alike who were searching for something more than the typical oversimplified controls found on most compressor pedals. Now, based on our users’ valuable feedback, we’ve taken everything great about our original Compressor and made it even better. 

On top of the full range of features and controls normally only seen in high end studio equipment, such as input and gain reduction metering, independent attack and release controls, a mix knob for parallel compression, and an external sidechain insert, we’ve now added a ‘tilt’ tone eq control, and a selectable sidechain high pass filter built into the Compressor’s detection circuit. Oh, and the whole package is now half the size and available in two snazzy colours!

FEATURES

  • All Analog Signal Path – no digitals in here!
  • Extremely Transparent – Add dynamic control without altering the original tone of your instrument
  • 3 Compression Ratios – 2:1, 4:1 and 10:1 ratios offer lots of flexibility
  • Attack and Release Control – allows for ultimate control over the compression characteristics
  • Mix – Blend uncompressed signal in with the compressed signal for parallel compression, New York Style!
  • Metering – Meter both gain reduction and input levels on separate meters.
  • Tone – New tone knob, a “tilt” style tone knob centred at 500Hz to nail that perfect tone.
  • Sidechain Send/Return– 3.5mm TRS jack send and return for sidechain compression.
  • Sidechain High Pass Filter – No need to add a high pass filter to the sidechain, now there is one built in that can be toggled off or set to 120 or 240Hz.
  • True Display LEDs – Bright multi-colour LEDs always let you know what the compressor is doing.
  • Power On Bypassed or Engaged – For musicians that never want to turn their compressor off.
  • True Bypass – The Empress Compressor employs true bypass, so you can be sure that it’s not affecting the signal when disengaged.
  • Small Size – New enclosure approximately half the size of the original compressor, which is delightfully small when considering all the features packed into this unit.
  • Beautiful Case – It has a sparkle you can’t deny, in blue or silver!

Empress Effects Pedals come with a 2 year warranty right out of the box, but you can extend your warranty to 4 years.

Although we are not authorised to determine if any repair is covered under warranty, if the item was purchased through World of Music, then we are often the best people to facilitate the claim for you and will do so as timely as possible. Warranty does not apply to cosmetic damage or faults that are a result of user neglect. Although your mate is really handy with a soldering iron, any product modification or home repair will also result in a void warranty.

Quite often, something perceived as a fault is as simple as a faulty cable or power issue so we always suggest checking over Frequently Asked Questions on the manufacturer website first. It can be a helpful approach to getting to the bottom of a problem and save you a lot of time in getting your gear back up and running!

This item ships via courier; fully insured for your peace of mind. Orders require a signature on delivery and we suggest using an address where someone will be present for the speediest delivery time. For delivery attempts with no one present to sign, your order will be taken to the courier depot and a card will be left for you to organise redelivery.
