Empress Reverb for me the best solution for highest quality hall and plate reverbs
KeesD 19.04.2019
I didn't buy the pedal for modern reverbs like shimmer, swell etc. But I'm looking already for many years for the best pedal for big/long/warm/clean Hall and Plate reverbs on the market. I owned before: Specular Tempus, Strymon Big & Blue Sky, Ventris Audio Reverb, and severall cheaper reverb pedals. In A/B comparisons with the Empress I can say without any hesitation that the Empress Reverb delivers the most natural sound without any noise. All the other pedals did "something" with the sound of my guitar which I didn't like. And all of them where very difficult to get a long clean reverb without noise. The sounds of the Empress Reverb are really great. I really like the way of working with presets and banks and they are easy to select and/or tweak during live performances.
One little remark on the features: an USB port for connection with the PC (that many other pedals do have) would enlarge the tweakability. Especially some more adjustable parameters for the delay function would make the pedal really complete for me.
I honestly believe....if you want to keep the natural sound of your guitar and you want studio quality hall and plate for your live perfomances, there is no better choice than this Empress reverb.

attention to detail
nesmeured 12.05.2019
What I love about this reverb pedal is the attention to detail. IMO it absolutely outclasses the competition with its extremely organic and ethereal sound. It doesnt sound tinny, it doesnt sound fake. Blends very well in the mix and the overall colour is truly beautiful.

What I dont really like is the interface, which seems a bit unclear with a lot of hidden features, but aside that, I believe I made the right decision buying that little box, because The Empress Reverb is something different and I love to explore.

An amazing sound
Dnl Scll 27.02.2020
I use this pedal in my live setup and in my studio, especially with synthesizers.
And in both cases, it has produced astonishing sound.

Slightly larger than average, it is very sturdy.
It sounds as a studio level reverb, lush and warm, with stereo input and output.
Also the Reverb UI is pretty intuitive.
Empress keeps improving the quality of products, updating this often on their forum.
My only regret is that you need to buy another product, the "Empress MIDIBOX", to control it via MIDI.

And, to conclude, I highly recommend this pedal, it's really something special.

Great reverb
Kriig1 09.08.2017
It's great. Very high quality reverbs.

Both classic and wierd ones. The reverb melts into your guitar tone. Both clean, crunch and high gain.
Sounds very natural and as a blues, rock and 80's heavy metal rocker that's the most important.

It's cool with the other reverbs too. Very inspiring.
In cunjuction with the Echosystem i have now only need for a Uni-vibe, tremolo and a vibrato pedal. All other modulations are covered for me personally...

Presets was over the top (to much effect) for my setup, but it's easy to make your own. I allways make my own, so no problem. The output knob can boost or retract, which is a plus. When i get the midi setup, i actually don't need a clean boost for my lead tone. There is more than enough boost available in this box.

Empress updates their pedals (Reverb & EchoSystem) regulary, based on bug fixes needed, voting on the forum etc.

The need for separate midi box, is a little negative, but as long as it works, i have no problem with it.

All in all a fantastic pedal that is staying on my board with the Echosystem.

Pros: Amazing sound and easy operation. Also Midi.
Cons: The need for a separate midi box.
