Way Huge WHE702S Echo-Puss Analog Delay Pedal

The Echo-Puss Analog Delay Pedal is a minimalist’s wet dream, sporting a simple yet powerful user interface and a warm and vibey sound. The unit utilizes LFO circuitry to modulate its repeats, which is further controlled through the depth and speed controls. You can also use the tone control to set the tone of your repeats, with the tone becoming brighter as the knob is turned clockwise.

Features

  • Controls: Delay, Feedback, Depth, Speed, Tone, Blend
  • Delay Time: 20ms -600ms
  • Hardwire Bypass
  • DC In and 9-Volt Battery

The controls of the Echo-Puss aren’t really that unique, but the pedal definitely has a signature tone. It’s not an attempt at trying to nail down the elusive tone of a piece of gear from decades ago, it’s a solid entry to the world of analog delays in its own right.

If you’re a Way Huge fan and you’re trying to choose between the Echo-Puss and the Aqua-Puss, the basic difference between the two is that the Echo-Puss is considered brighter while the Aqua-Puss is considered to be fuller. The Aqua-Puss also has 300ms in delay time.

Because the Echo-Puss is so clear and bright for an analog delay, one of its main selling points is its ability to remain clear in a mix. An effect’s ability to contribute to a greater whole is what defines a great effect, because there are more instruments in a band than just a guitar.
