Description

The Empress Effects ParaEq gives musicians a powerful, musical, high quality EQ in a conveniently small package. The signal path of the ParaEq is comprised of the highest quality components chosen for their transparency, powerful tone shaping capabilities, and low operating noise. With the Empress ParaEq your instrument will still sound like your instrument, only better.

3 bands of parametric EQ, each with 3 selectable q widths, give you extremely flexible EQ. The wide Q is great for general tone shaping and is extremely transparent. The medium Q is perfect for everyday problem solving like pulling out boxiness from the low mids to reducing harshness and adding bit in the upper mids. The narrow Q excels at notching out problem frequencies and is a savior for acoustic guitarists when combating feedback issues.

The Boost section offers 30 dB of clean boost and can be set to engage with the EQ section to act as a make-up gain when doing subtractive EQ, or can be used completely separately as a pure clean boost. Great for bumping up your volume for solos or hitting the front end of a tube amp for a bit more break-up.

Features:

  • All Analog Signal Path – to deliver the most organic tone possible
  • Ultra Transparent Sweet Sounding EQ – enhance your sound without masking the tone of your instrument
  • Lots of Control - with switchable q, fully over-lapping sweepable frequency selection, and 15 dB of cut and boost you’ll get all the control you need
  • Ultra-Quiet – You’ve come to expect Empress pedals to be noise free and they have delivered once again - if you put this at the front of your chain and boost a bit you’ll also cut down on the noise your other pedals are introducing
  • Loads of Headroom - Internally switchable to run off 9/12/18 V power supplies
  • 30 dB of Boost - making it an ideal candidate before long effects chains and overdriving tube amps
  • Pristine Clean Sound – The distortion was measured to be less than 0.03%. Pretty remarkable for a guitar pedal
  • True Bypass - The Empress ParaEq w/Boost EQ Pedal employs true bypass, so you can be sure that it's not affecting the signal when disengaged
  • 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
