Empress Effect Echosystem Guitar Pedal
Empress releasing an incredible new pedal the Echosystem which encumbers multiple areas of delay. Delay, Echo, Reverb all this high quality unit from Empress Effects who have really become a leading voice in the delay market. Made up in Canada their units are well made, verstail, quiet and above all full of guitar tone. If your looking for studio quality delay and reverb in one small powerful unit this maybe the pedal.
Spanning the gambit of known delay possibilities and beyond, the Echosystem could be the ultimate delay-crafting tool. Faithful emulations of classics like digital, tape and analog delays are numerous, as well as Empress' own take on each of these delay styles. Moving beyond the traditional, the vast amount of sonic ground the Echosystem can cover becomes apparent. Check out the ambient modes when you're feeling chilled out, or perhaps a visit to the multi tap modes for a taste of inspiration.
The Dual Engine functionality allows any 2 of these delays to be used together, routed in either parallel, series, or left/right configurations. In addition to delays, there's the super-useful reverb combos, which will elevate any guitar part. Oh, and don't forget Whisky mode, best accompanied by a dram of whatever you've got!
