Empress Effects Heavy Menace

The Heavy Menace is the most versatile distortion pedal Empress Effects ever created. It’s an evolution of the original Heavy with new features and a compact enclosure. In addition to the original Heavy and Heavier modes, the Heavy Menace adds a new Lite(ish) mode, covering any high-gain sound from classic hard rock to searing modern metal.

  • Three versatile distortion modes - Lite(ish), Heavy, and Heavier
  • Footswitchable noise gate
  • Three-band EQ with sweepable mid frequency
  • Weight control to sculpt low frequency response
  • Linked or independent switching of the distortion and gate
  • Gate key input (⅛” TS or TRS)
  • True bypass or buffered bypass
