The Empress Chorus offers unparalleled chorus options; an infinite number of analog chorus/vibe devices in one box…
The effect was popularized by Andy Summers in the early 1980’s with his work in The Police – and we were delighted to learn that he chose our Empress Chorus to fulfill all his chorus requirements on The Police Reunion tour.
The Red Witch Chorus is the only chorus pedal in the world to offer an adjustable delay setting. It changes the delay time – it’s on a pot so you’ve got an infinite number of chorus pedal sounds in one box – from super-spanky sparkling clean to over the top sea-sick inducing, pitch bending wobble.
The delay setting in all other chorus units is preset to one setting – producing only one voice or flavour.
The Empress allows the user an almost infinite number of flavours by adjusting the “voice” control - an innovation never before offered and only available in the Empress.
As well as Andy Summers, folk like Jon Hudson (Faith No More), Sigur Ros, Paul Stacey (Oasis) and Terry Lawless (U2) consider the Empress Chorus to be a favorite.

“Ben Fulton, the man behind Red Witch, has succeeded in designing a chorus pedal that is capable of dialing in pretty much any chorus sound you may have floating around in your head while not relying on past sounds to get you there. ”
Premier Guitar Magazine, June 2008
The Empress is a three-dimensional modulation machine, and when you couple its vast array of sounds with absolutely wicked construction – and some cool graphics – you’ve got one of the drippiest sounding chorus/vibrato pedals ever made.”
