The Emperor is a one-two combo of creamy low to mid-gain overdrive and freakishly transparent presence. Cut through the mix without drowning out your band mates.
The gigging guitarist never knows when they will need a preamp, boost, or overdrive and when on the move, rearranging or adding pedals to your pedalboard is not always possible. The TSVG Emperor is a highly versatile pedal that can adapt to any situation on the go. The Emperor acts as a preamp boost or as a warm and articulate overdrive.
TSVG keeps the controls simple, one for Volume and one for Gain, allowing for fast adjustment on the go. Keeping the toggle switch in the up position and rolling back on the gain makes the TSVG Emperor the perfect clean boost or set it at unity or right above to push signal through long cable runs.
When the toggle switch is in the down position, the overdrive becomes much more aggressive, allowing the mids and highs to cut through the mix. By increasing the Gain knob, varying amounts of grit and overdrive can be added for harmonically rich saturation that cleans up with pick attack and guitar volume adjustments. The TSVG Emperor is a perfect "always on" pedal or great for adding an overdrive channel to a clean amplifier.
The Emperor is built by hand in Philadelphia, PA with hand-picked and matched components. For more information please visit tsvgpedals.com.
