    I am continuing to clean out my pedals as I no longer need them.

    The Red Witch Empress Chorus/Vibrato pedal is in excellent working shape, very good cosmetic shape: the body has a few nicks and a small patch of adhesive on the back. I am not sure who autographed the back.

    Powered by a 9V battery or a standard Boss style 9V power supply (see pic in next post).

    They list for $379, sell new for $299. I am asking [DEL]$180[/DEL] $170 which includes shipping anywhere in the CONUS. Paypal preferred. PM if interested (I don't monitor the thread).

    Corporate info on the pedal:

    Unlike most chorus pedals on the market, the analog Empress Chorus features a controllable delay time setting. This gives you the ability to dial in your dream chorus settings. You also get control of brightness, mix, depth, speed, and even the input gain and tonality. At the flick of a switch the Empress is also a vibrato pedal.

    Thanks to powerful sound-sculpting controls, you can tweak the Red Witch Empress Chorus to be the pedal of your dreams. The voicing control allows you to dial up virtually any chorus sound by tweaking the delay time. You'll get everything from sparkling clean to dizzying pitch bending warble. Most chorus pedals feature one time setting, maybe two, but the voicing control on the Red Witch Empress Chorus gives you a huge range of delay time to truly create a unique chorus sound.

    Like many Red Witch guitar effects pedals, the Empress Chorus has a hidden secret inside. Pop the case open (it's easy, and encouraged by Red Witch), and there's an internal slide that lets you adjust the input stage of the Empress Chorus. Adjusting this control changes the input stage, giving the Empress Chorus a little more boost and a slightly different tonal character. It's an innovative way to fine-tune your Red Witch Empress Chorus effect to suit whatever style you're going for.

    When not in use, the Red Witch Empress Chorus's true bypass design takes it completely out of your signal chain. It doesn't run your signal through the entire pedal, but directly from the input to the output. This keeps your signal pure, and your precious tone unaffected.

    Bump for a great chorus/ vibrato pedal. Good bass, share with your fab gitard player but don't use it as a doorstop!
