OVERVIEW
The Empress Tremolo2 is an original design built from the ground up to include innovative features without sacrificing tone. The audio signal path is analog, but the tremolo effect is controlled digitally via opto technology.

Tap tempo, selectable waveforms, a choice of 8 rhythms and a full preset system capable of storing up to 8 presets are all at your fingertips. The control port allows control over the Tremolo2 via external tap tempo, expression pedal, control voltage and MIDI, making the tremolo2 more powerful than ever!

FEATURES

  • Pristine Sound – The Empress Tap Tremolo2 Pedal has to be heard to be believed. It’s whisper quiet and free from the “LFO throb” usually associated with tremolos. We dare anyone to find a better sounding tremolo.
  • Waveform Selection – You can modulate your sound with three different waveforms. An asymmetrical tremolo was modelLed after a ’65 Fender Vibrolux (brown face) to give you the fullest tremolo sound possible. A square wave can be utiliSed if you’re after a harder sound. And if you’re looking for a more normal tremolo, you can use the triangle wave setting.
  • Tap Tempo – The Empress Tap Tremolo2 Pedal averages your last four taps so it plays in sync with your music. You can also choose different tap to tremolo rate ratios. 1:1, 3:4, 1:2, 1:3 and 1:4 are available.
  • Rhythms – Another exclusive feature. The Empress Trem will definitely do your run-of-the-mill tremolo sound to a tee. But you can also set it to play different rhythms. Check out the soundclips for examples.
  • Gain – A problem with most tremolos on the market is that when they’re engaged, you hear a noticeable drop in volume. The Empress Trem solves this by having a gain stage on the output. It’s able to deliver up to 12dB of gain without adding any distortion to the signal.
  • Presets – Save all your settings in up to 8 presets and recall with the touch of a button.
  • True Bypass – The Empress Trem employs true bypass, so you can be sure that it’s not affecting the signal when disengaged. Buffered bypass is also available if that’s your thing.
  • Advanced Configuration Menu – The Advanced configuration menu lets you configure how your tremolo works. Select from true or buffered bypass, 0-8 presets, MIDI configuration, Control port control (expression pedal, external tap, control voltage and MIDI) as well as which preset system to use, the ramp speed when switching between presets and more!
  • Perfect Size – The enclosure measures approximately 4.5″ by 3.5″ by 1.5″, which is delightfully small when considering all the features packed into this unit.

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.
