Way Huge Electronics WHE701 Aqua Puss Analog Delay
Bought this on a whim because it looked cool. (yeah i know) But I have some great analog delays to compare it to so... Has your typical controls. Delay, feedback, mix...what more could you need right? I know it's supposed to be true bypass but I did detect some tone suckage so I put it in my bypass looper to be safe. You never know these days. Some pedals that advertise the true bypass function are total tone suckers.

UTILIZATION

This may be a newer pedal but it is fancy. I'm used to nice pricey tap tempo analog delays with stereo options. No such thing here. This is in the vein of that Carbon Copy delay that Dunlop was so successful with last year. Very simply 3 knob layout. No frills. Just tone. I was shocked by the great build quality as I was honestly expecting something cheaper. These way huge pedals are impressive. I've gotta check out more.

SOUND QUALITY

No tap tempo. And the delays don't go very long either. Honestly this isn't a gripe for me because I don't ever do anything longer than a second. I bought this to see how the sound was. Oscillation is easy to get out of this pedal which is a good indicator of how truly analog it is. I compared this to a few of my other delays and tonally it sounds a lot like my old Maxon analog delay. It's too bright to sound like my Carbon Copy. Overall I think you get what you pay for. It does sound like an analog delay.

OVERALL OPINION

Considering the price, this pedal isn't anything special, but it isn't bad either. I suppose if you like simplicity and quality it's a great delay. Personally I think I'll go back to my Maxon but I think the Aquapuss is about as good. Maybe even better built too. The limited time might be a deal breaker for some people. I didn't mind.

Way Huge Electronics WHE701 Aqua Puss Analog Delay
- Delay knob
- Blend knob
- Smaller Feedback knob
- LED
- Analog Delay
- 20 ms to 300 ms delay times
- External 9 volt power connection
- internal 9 volt battery connection
- True bypass switching

UTILIZATION

The Delay knob controls the amount length of delay, between 20 to 300 milliseconds. The Blend knob controls the amount of delay in the signal. The Feedback knob controls the amount of repeats in the delay signal. With the Feedback down, you can get quick slap back type delays. Turning it up gets you longer delay tones.

SOUND QUALITY

The MKII version of the Aqua-Puss is pretty disappointing. It's not the worst sounding delay pedal ever made, but it's also far from being the most lush and warm. The pedal is fairly bright, which will work well and help you cut through the mix with darker and higher gain amps. The ultimate downfall of the pedal is the clangy metallic sound that you often get from it. It's possibly to set it to avoid those sounds, but you do so at the lack of repeats.

OVERALL OPINION

Again, this is for the Dunlop MKII reissue.

I bought this pedal after a quick demo at the store and I was more enamored with its cool look and history than the sound. After actually attempting to use it I was left disappointed. Like I said, you could buy a lot worse delay pedals, but not many worse delay pedals. Many people will point of the relatively low delay time (300 ms) as why the pedal fails. I think it fails more on its overall cold and metallic sound, but the 300 ms time doesn't help, either.

All and all, the pedal is good for its price point, but for about $50 more you can step up to a much more pleasant sounding and useful delay pedal, which I would suggest you doing.

Way Huge Electronics WHE701 Aqua Puss Analog Delay
This is an old-school analog delay pedal. It's been reissued not too long ago, the old ones were in very high demand and the prices that they went (and still go for) are outrageous. It's surprising that these things ever stopped being made, considering that people have been talking about it for years. Anyway, it has the 1/4" input and output, as well as an adapter for a 9V power supply. There is no room for MIDI capabilities, or computer editing, as this is an old school analog pedal. It is not rackable as it's a foot pedal.

UTILIZATION

The editing on this pedal is pretty easy overall. There are simply three knobs in use here. One controls the amount of delay added to the signal, one controls the amount of feedback the effect gives you, and the third knob is a blend knob (blend being the mix of dry signal and wet signal). Getting a good sound is easy, the only sounds that the machine is generally capable of sound great. There's a decent amount of versatility within these pedals as well, I think that they can create a wide range of sounds. The manual would probably only be necessary if you are looking to adjust the pedal somehow.

SOUND QUALITY

I can't say much about this pedal other than the fact that it is a great one. I really like the sound of the pedal itself. It does actually color the sound slightly, but I kind of like that quality in analog delays when the pedal is good. This one certainly is. Whether using it just to beef up the sound of your guitar, or actually going for long, echoing passages and spacey effects, this thing has it all. One of the great reasons its so good is that it doesn't get too muddy like some lesser delay pedals will. Those are usually extremely frustrating. This is an extremely versatile delay, and is probably one of the best I've heard for getting really wacky guitar sounds going with an amp. All in all, it's a lot of fun.

OVERALL OPINION

I think that even though this thing is a bit expensive, it's totally worth it. The reissue, from what I hear, is not quite as cool as the original, but they never really are anyway. It's still a great pedal, and is totally worth the price. The uses for this pedal are numerous. I think that I would recommend this to anybody who likes a good analog delay.
