The Aqua-Puss MkII returns, ready to bathe a tone-thirsty world with gorgeously smooth delay.
The Way Huge Electronics Aqua-Puss MkII Analog Delay pedal offers bold analog and tape delay echo.
Over the years, the Way Huge Aqua-Puss received tremendous praise for its outstanding tone, but because of its scarcity, the cost of finding a used pedal went soaring. Once you hear this reissue, you will know exactly what all the fuss was about.
One twist of the Aqua-Puss pedal's Delay knob takes you from a tight 20ms delay to a cavernous 300ms. The Feedback control regulates delay duration and intensity. But watch out. Extreme settings can send the Aqua-Puss MkII into self-oscillating psycho-freak-out mode. Meanwhile the Blend knob lets you set a balance between dry and delayed signal-from mild to wild. The Aqua-Puss MkII delivers all the spooky mystery of vintage analog delay and tape-based echo, with none of the hassle of creaky, ancient gear. This reissued pedal features delay, feedback and blend knobs, just like the original.
Professional guitarists across the globe have long revered the amazing tone the Aqua-Puss delay puts out. From Oasis' Noel Gallagher to John Mayer, this pedal has been a staple to their unique guitar tones. It delivers a warm, vintage analog delay that is truly sublime and rich. Now it returns to make a glorious appearance in your pedal board, offered at a price that any tone junkie can enjoy.

On loan from a friend... Love the larger knobs and good sound of this unit. Larger footprint than a Boss or Behringer size pedal. I think this goes out to 330ms so longer delays are out of the question. Use it for doubling/slapback and it is great. Hope my buddy doesn't want it back soon :)
Best In Its Class
I've tried many analog delay pedals in this price category, and this one is by far the clear winner. As cliched as it sounds, there's no other way to describe the repeats on this unit than as 'warm' and 'lush'.
On the right settings it adds a dreamy quality to your tone, with the repeats gently melting away, their lingering presence felt subconsciously rather than heard. Some analog delays I'd tried offered up harsh, unmusical repeats (cough 616 cough), but not so with this pedal. Even the self oscillation sounds great, so far that I've even used it in a few of my tracks.
Its simple layout, solid construction and eye catching color contribute to a pretty impressive package for the price. If I had to give any negatives, it's that the blue LED may be a little too bright, making it hard to see the knobs in low light situations. That's a minor nitpick. If you're looking for a true analog delay and you don't need long delay times (300ms tops with this baby), then look no further.
Delay pedals have come and gone from my board, but the Aqua-Puss has and will continue to be a constant in my effects repertoire. See for yourself, I don't think you'll be disappointed !
Excellent analog delay pedal
An amazing analog delay pedal. This was my first delay pedal and honestly I got it because John Mayer had one. The delay repeats are so warm and compliment your guitar lines so nice. The slap-back settings are really killer. I send this delay last in the chain to only my Fender amp, while my Traynor don't not receive the signal. This makes for a stereo/wet/dry rig.
Warm, analog, great for slapback. It oscillates pretty quickly so be careful with the blend knob.
