One of the rules for this 52 pedals series is that each pedal must be from a unique pedal manufacturer. Another rule is that I will write a new article each week. We all know how that second rule is going this year. Well the first rule stands strong. I’m a man of integrity. Limited integrity, but integrity all the same. That’s why today’s pedal—the Supa-Puss by Way Huge breaks no rules at all.
The fact that Way Huge is a Jim Dunlop company and that I’ve already included a Dunlop pedal in this series means nothing at all.
What is the Supa-Puss pedal all about then? Well it’s an analog delay that has more knobs and lights than the Christmas tree I put up for three days each year—Christmas Eve to Boxing Day is enough.
The knobs are for delay, feedback, mix, depth, speed, gain and tone. The lights let you know the pedal is on and working—always an encouraging sign—as well as indicating the delay mode which is switched by pressing the feedback knob it seems. It’s an amazingly versatile delay pedal as has been indicated in the many videos that the official website offers.
Of the three embedded videos on the official website, my favourite is this one—on account of the video/audio walk-through.
One of the things I like about this delay pedal is its included gain control. If you’ve been following this series—thanks for that by the way—then you’ll have noticed I am quite partial to the odd bit of gain, overdrive or distortion. So adding that into a delay pedal is a bit like creating two pedals in one for me. Well, it’s not that much gain that I can determine, but it may be enough for me to justify this pedal to my wife should I decide to buy it at the end of the year when this series is over.
You may have also noticed that the pedal has two foot-stomping buttons. One is going to be a standard footswitch control. If you’ve used a guitar pedal before, you’ve worked out what this one does. The second switch—the one on the right—is the tap-tempo control. What every good delay pedal needs.
Adjust your tone. Adjust your gain. Adjust your delay. This pedal could adjust the decision you make when looking to purchase an analog delay pedal.
Disclaimer: I’ve not played this guitar pedal. I have not experienced first-hand the sound or effects of this guitar pedal. That doesn’t matter. It looks awesome, it’s obviously played by winners and I want one.
