    I have lots of other delay pedals but there's something about this that brings out different ways of playing. It has some grit so it's not a super clean digital delay. While it doesn't have presets it has that immediacy of hands on knobs. The modulation and tone controls give a surprising amount of flexibility. The delay knob gives up to 900 ms delay and you can stretch it up to 3 seconds using the tap tempo but that results in some wild aliasing (like ring modulation) effects, which are either really annoying or maybe interesting (your call, right). It is kind of pricey and I got mine used but I was comparing it to a deluxe memory man and it won (and I love EHX stuff)...

    One Delay Pedal to Rule Them All

    Wow. Wow. This is a fantastic delay pedal that sounds so good and has so many features. It has an exquisite analog sound w/ low noise, delays that decay with such character and texture, and a long list of features: expression pedal input, very easily-accessible battery compartment, tap tempo, 4 time divisions plus some crazy "Chase" modes that cycle through the note divisions as you play, modulation that gives you some really cool sounds to blend in with the delayed signal, drive control to add some crunch to the delayed signal, tone control to make the delayed signal sound dark to bright, and the choice to instantly kill the delays when the pedal is bypassed or have them trail off naturally. Like the Sweetwater product description says, you can get everything from short slap-back delays to massively wide-sounding swells. Add just a little bit of a delay from this pedal to anything to give your guitar sound a little extra depth and richness, or crank up the delay and the modulation to get some gnarly sounds! The ONLY thing I would change about this pedal is make it possible to control multiple parameters with an expression pedal. You will not be disappointed with the beautiful tones from this pedal. Worth every penny!

    The only analog delay pedal you'll ever need.

    Full Disclosure: I don't work for Way Huge/MXR/Dunlop, and am not getting paid for this review; but I REALLY love Way Huge! I own the Swollen Pickle, the Fat Sandwich, the Green Rhino, and the Pork Loin. When it comes to pedals, if Jorge Tripps designed it, I want it. With that in mind...

    This pedal = MIND: BLOWN! A schedule conflict took me away from it, and now over 7 hours later, I can't stop thinking about the killer tones I was getting. This pedal has the richest feature set of any analog delay (and most digital ones) on the market (AFAIK). I won't waste your time rehashing the description. But I will tell you a few things you won't find in the description:

    1. Like all Way Huge products, the build quality is crazy good. Everything feels solid and built to withstand the rigors of regular gigging or a lifetime of getting stepped on.

    2. Dimensionally, this pedal is the same length and height as the others in the line, but it is a bit wider.

    3. The "Gain" knob is VERY sensitive. Just a little dab'll do ya. Unless you WANT a crazy, out-of-control-noise-feedback-freakout, then go for it.

    4. The modulation is awesome. I was able to add just enough to get a very convincing U2 "Bad" / "Unforgettable Fire" sound. Again, lots of range on these knobs, go slow.

    5. The "Tone" knob is very helpful in getting the perfect amount of dark "grunt" out of your delayed notes.

    6. Sounds great after a good OD pedal. Plays nice with other pedals.

    7. For as much as it does, it's exceptionally user friendly.

    I've used or owned most of the other delays on the market: Boss, Line 6, TC Electronic, Digitech. If I could only take one delay with me on a world tour, it would be the Supa Puss. It's that good.

    Awesome Delay

    Awesome modulation, great controls. Some people say the sound is a bit bright like a surf slap but it gets really cool underwater sounding crazy feedback etc.

    Beautiful sound, very fussy balance control

    Sonically I am very happy with this. In the most basic settings, it makes you want to play music which is the highest compliment. As you will see in other reviews there are many levels beyond basic settings that allow for unanticipated inspiration, another big plus. On the minus side the wet/dry control goes from totally dry to 50% dry and 50% wet within the first little teeny bit of rotation. It is quite difficult to fine tune anything in between. Then you have most of the rest of the travel of the knob without much change until you reach all the other side where you suddenly slam to no dry and all wet. Fine for the studio but if you want to grab a knob in a live setting and adjust the balance it's really hit or miss (a lot of miss). If it had a normal intuitive and user friendly mix knob this would get 5 stars from me.

    not for me

    I am still looking for the right delay. I am a pedalsteel player and a big fan of analog delays. I would like to have a tap tempo feature though. I don't like the modeling delays. They sound amazing until you start being able to hear the algorithm or "wow and flutter" sample. So I was very excited about the supa puss.
    The IMD (Intermodulation distortion) makes it unusable for steel guitar. It becomes a problem with the tight moving intervals I use regularly. Makes the sound too big and muddy. There are analog pedals I love the sound of but they don't have the tap feature. Oh well.... the search continues

    I bought mine here at Sweetwater and returned it with no problems.
