Empress effects was founded by Steve Braggs in 2005, with the Tremolo pedal being the first official pedal of Empress Effects. Since then, many other amazing works have come into fruition. Each pedal is hand crafted and hand assembled in Canada. All the amazing work of Empress Effects still lives on very strongly and is growing steadily over time. Their new releases are constantly captivating gear heads everywhere and it is with great anticipation that we look forward to their new releases, as well as to appreciate their present work.
