Way Huge Echo-Puss Analog Delay
The Way Huge Echo-Puss is a delay pedal from Dunlop, featuring analog delay sounds that you can easily fine tune.
This pedal is designed by Jeorge Tripps, the same guy behind the popular Aqua-Puss delay pedal.
The Way Huge Aqua-Puss was more of a simplified delay that provides classic sounds without much tweaking options. The Echo-Puss was created to cover everything else that the Aqua-Puss can't provide.
Jeorge provided the details behind the design of both pedals and we quote: "It’s a simple set-it-and-forget-it design with a relatively short delay time and a bright, snappy voice. If you play rockabilly or you’re going for that ’50s rock sound, the Aqua-Puss does slapback echo like no other pedal—guys like Rev. Horton Heat love it. You can do a lot with it for how simple it is, but I felt there was further ground to cover."
Tripps continues: "That’s where the Echo-Puss comes in. It’s still easy to use, but it has more parameters for players to customize and it has twice as much delay time with two bucket-brigade chips instead of one. They’re the same low-headroom chips used in the Aqua-Puss; I like them because they break up the repeats a bit. For further control of the delay sound, I added a tone control and a fully tweakable modulation circuit. Overall, the tone of the Echo-Puss is warmer than the Aqua-Puss, but it’s still pretty bright."
This pedal has up to 600ms of analog delay using a pair of gravelly-voiced bucket-brigade chips. Main controls include Delay and Feedback, with the Delay control setting the frequency of the effect while the Feedback control lets you select a sweep from one to infinite repeats. Depth, Speed and Blend knobs give you detailed control over the modulation while the tone control lets you tweak the treble level in your repeats. It also comes with a fully tweakable LFO modulation circuit which lets you add a liquid texture to the repeated signal.
As expected from Way Huge pedals, the Echo-Puss does comes with aesthetics that match its sounds. It features custom artwork from rock n' roll artist Alan Forbes.

Although the same volume balancing principle is used by all of these pedals, their approach, methodology and flexibility can vary. As such, your needs will depend on your playing style, be it versatility or simplicity and modern transparency or vintage style "warm" compression. Whatever your preference maybe, you will find a fitting compressor pedal right here in this list.
