I am amazed there is not a club for this already, but a search didn't turn anything up. I now own more Empress pedals than anything else (Multidrive for over a year, a Heavy for Christmas, and I recently sold my MXR to fund the Empress Compressor). I love the sounds, colors, build, and tweakability. My favorite thing about them probably won't apply to everyone here, but they are truly a series of pedals that works as well on guitar as they do on bass, which is very important to me. Club Numbers #1 - Adamixoye (Multidrive, Heavy, Compressor) #2 - bassburton (Tape Delay) #3 - loopee (Compressor) #4 - aledeville (Compressor) #5 - jimmybc91 (Compressor) #6 - Michedelic (Nebulus) #7 - Titania (Compressor, Multidrive) #8 - saxman_singcan (VMSD, Compressor) #9 - Granny1089 (Multidrive) #10 - Philip Mackenzie (Multidrive) #11 - jjclr (Compressor) #12 - adi77 (Tremolo) #13 - zontar (Distortion) #14 - powmetalbassist (Compressor) #15 - Omelet (Heavy, ParaEQ) #16 - ccouch7 (Multidrive) #17 - thejockobird (Compressor) #18 - TMFoodBass (Multidrive) #19 - sideFX (Compressor) #20 - FretNoMore (Multidrive, Compressor, Phaser, ParaEQ) I'll kick this off with my favorite settings: Compressor: Basic Compression/Limiting Ratio: 10/1 Input: noon Attack: noon Release: 2:30 Mix: 2:30 Output: 10:00 I only got this last week, but so far this seems to be a sweet spot for adding sustain, controlling peaks, and generally evening things out while still allowing dynamics. Multidrive Vintage Drive Channel(s): OD Drive: 2:00 Volume: noon Hi: 1:00 Low: 1:00 Mid: 11:00 Mid Freq: 500 Hz Filter: Off This might have more high end than what other people think of for "vintage," but I like this sound. It's when I want more of a "classic" overdriven, semi-transparent sound compared to my B7K. Fuzz Channel(s): Fuzz, OD (optional) Drive: 5:00 (max, fuzz), noon or less (OD) Volume: 1:00 (fuzz), 7:00 (off) to 3:00 (heavy blend, OD) Hi: 2:00 Low: 1:00 Mid: 8:00 Mid Freq: 250 Hz Filter: Off (fuzz), Off or LP (OD) This is a nice Muff-y but still aggressive fuzz sound. The OD can be mixed in, or not. Good results running through a B7K, though it really changes the character. My B7K EQ is usually Low: 3:00, Treble 11:30, Low Mid: 9:00, High Mid 1:30, Grunt to FAT, Attack depending on my mood. You can run that with the Blend at 2:30, Level at noon, and Drive at 9:30 for a heavier, less fuzz-y sound, or Blend at 10:00, Level at noon, and Drive maxed for an interesting layered sound. Heavy: Insane Drive Channel(s): Heavier Drive: 3:00 Weight: 5:00 (max) Hi: 2:00 Low: 2:00 Mid: 10:00 Mid Freq: 500 Hz Pretty good by itself, but for the best results, run through B7K with blend at 2:30, drive at 9:30, Grunt on FAT, Attack to taste, and the EQ listed above under the Multidrive Fuzz setting.
