Description

In the aptly named Empress Effects Heavy you'll find a huge range of killer high gain tones. From crisp, mid-driven 80s metal, to scooped, modern down-tuned brutality, this little box of sonic mayhem does it all. The two independent channels can be voiced similarly so that one channel can be used as a solo boost, or they can be voiced entirely differently by using the mid range control in conjunction with the 3 position mid frequency select switch. Add in separate weight controls to shape the low end response of each channel, and a global hi/low eq section that allows you to fine tune your particular amp and cab combination, and you've got a serious tool to create a supremely heavy sounding rig.

On top of all this Empress have added an extremely responsive and hassle free noise gate that will ensure dead silent operation with even the most obscene amounts of gain added.

Features:

  • All Analog Signal Path - no digitals in here!
  • Super High Gain - It's called the heavy, what'd you expect?
  • Weight - An intuitive new control that changes the character of your low end
  • 3 Band EQ - Selectable mid frequency lets you get precise EQ curves, with boost or cut up to 10 dB per band
  • Dual Channel Design - Heavy and Heavier let you set your channels similarly, for rhythm/solo, or completely differently for a wider range of tones
  • Soft Touch Switches - Relay bypass and intelligent switching make this pedal super easy to use
  • Noise Gate - Natural and aggressive settings let you tailor the gate to your needs, keeping noise out of your signal chain
  • True Bypass - The Empress Heavy employs true bypass, so you can be sure that it's not affecting the signal when disengaged
  • Small 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
