The Emperor is a warm and articulate overdrive, but can do so much more. We keep the controls simple; volume, gain, and a toggle switch to control the boost function. 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. In the up position, the tone rounds out and adds thick low end punch. The Emperor is built by hand in Philadelphia, PA with hand-picked and matched components.
TSVG pedals are built by hand in Philadelphia, PA using top quality components including NOS capacitors, IRC resistors, Switchcraft jacks, Alpha pots, cloth-covered wire, and more. All TSVG pedals are true bypass and wired point-to-point – we never build on a circuit board.
All TSVG pedals are powered by a nine volt (9V) jack.
