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.

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.

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.
