With its original, bigger brother selling used for a small fortune, this mini version of the analog delay, Way Huge Aqua Puss MkIII, could be considered a bargain, although the maximum delay time is only 300ms.
It definitely does the job of adding depth and dimension to your tone, with an overall brighter flavor than most BBD-based echos. Also, it can get wild if you turn the feedback to maximum settings, triggering self-oscillation.
It’s one of the most popular three-knob analog delay pedals out there.
Way Huge Aqua Puss MkIII (Smalls Series), Builder’s Notes
The Aqua-Puss Analog Delay is famous for its bright, jangly repeats and wonderfully straightforward operation. Now, all of that wholesome goodness comes in a Way Huge Smalls housing that your pedalboard will love you for. With 20ms to 300ms of delay time on tap, this pedal is all about tone-thickening and old school slap-back. The Feedback control regulates delay duration and intensity, but beware! Extreme settings are known to throw this pedal into wild, space-and-time-warping self-oscillation. Use the Blend knob to set a balance between dry and delay signals, from mild to wild! The Aqua-Puss Analog Delay is a must for players who want to add a little depth to their tone or conjure up some slap-back sweet enough to earn the envy of any rockabilly or country legend.
