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.

Powered by a single 9-volt battery, a 9-volt AC adapter such as the Dunlop ECB003, or the DC Brick™ and Iso-Brick™ power supplies. The power input is a 5.5mm x 2.1mm jack with the positive voltage on the outer sleeve. Using an external power supply will disconnect the battery. Disconnect the input jack to preserve battery life when not in use. The pedal will lock into bypass mode when it is time to change the battery. It also includes power protection circuitry to prevent damage from AC power supplies.
