Only 250 will be made, each with its serial number engraved on the front of the pedal.

Ottawa (December 8, 2016) -- The Empress Tremolo is 10 Years old! We’re celebrating with a limited edition, 10th anniversary tremolo pedal. Only 250 of these pedals will be made, each with its serial number engraved on the front of the pedal.

For every 10th anniversary tremolo sold, we will donate $10 to charity. Being animal lovers, we're supporting Big Sky Ranch, Ottawa's only no-kill animal shelter.

Andy Summers Charity Auction

Andy Summers, of The Police, was one of the first users of our original tremolo pedal 10 years ago. He was super awesome and signed serial number 1 of 250 for us to auction off for charity. 100% of the proceeds from this auction will go to charity, so please check it out and support a good cause.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.
