Empress ParaEq MKII Deluxe is a parametric and transparent EQ pedal and the second version of one of the best-selling Empress’ EQ pedals.
The original ParaEq has been loved and trusted by musicians on a variety of instruments for over a decade. Both the ParaEq MKII and the ParaEq MKII Deluxe feature a low-noise, transparent signal path that is extremely versatile. With three fully parametric bands, you can simultaneously achieve broad tonal shaping and precise fine-tuning to sculpt your perfect sound.
The ParaEQ MKII Deluxe will appeal to players who need high-pass and low-pass filters for precision work at the frequency extremes. It is for those who want the glorious sound of Bandaxall filters for sparkling high end or extra weight in the low end and for people who want to be prepared for any EQ situation.
This is a parametric EQ pedal. Parametric EQ is much more precise in the changes it can make, whereas the traditional graphic EQ affects nearly the entire frequency spectrum. The ParaEq is also a more transparent circuit than a graphic EQ. This combination of transparency and precision is why recording studio control rooms are dominated by parametric equalizers, and why they’re a great choice for creative and corrective EQ on your pedalboard.
