Empress Effects Receives Premier Guitar’s Premier Gear Award

Boutique pedal builder receives Premier Gear Award for the Superdelay
Oct. 21, 2009 - PRLog -- The Empress Effects Superdelay has been awarded a Premier Gear Award in the November issue of Premier Guitar.

The Premier Gear Award is an honor bestowed upon a piece of gear—whether guitar, amp, effect, or other gear— that has been extraordinary enough to impress the staff of Premier Guitar. Despite the high quality of all gear reviewed by Premier Guitar, only exemplary items earn the award.

“The Superdelay is a highly versatile unit with loads of features that will have you reading the manual to learn all of its possibilities,” says Premier Guitar reviewer Brian Barr. “That doesn’t mean it doesn’t sound good right out of the box, especially if the user has previous experience with other delay modelers… Analog purists need not be afraid, because this pedal is transparent and will not color your tone..” Premier Guitar awarded the Superdelay a rating of 5.0, the highest possible rating.

"We're really excited to receive the Premier Gear Award,” says Dan Junkins, VP of Awesomeness at Empress Effects. “We devoted over two years of our lives to make the Superdelay more than just a delay pedal, but also a source of inspiration. It’s great to be recognized and to see that all of our hard work has resulted in a truly inspirational creative tool.”

“It should be noted that we review a number of stellar products in every issue of Premier Guitar,” says Joe Coffey, editorial director for Premier Guitar. “However, the guitars, amps and effects that we designate as Premier Gear Award winners are in a league of their own. In other words, when you see the Premier Gear Award logo in a Premier Guitar magazine review or a PremierGuitar.com Web exclusive review, that basically means that it blew our socks off.”
