AquaPuss - can either the EchoPuss or SupaPuss replicate the slapback exactly?

    I have been considering an AquaPuss for slapback only. I already have a DD7.

    I was wondering if either the EchoPuss or the SupaPuss can exactly replicate the AquaPuss slapback, as they do offer more versatility otherwise.

    Thanks

    Any of them will allow you to dial in the same delay time and same number and volume of repeats as the aqua puss.
    Not sure if the tone would be exactly the same though.

    I only have the Aqua Puss but I'm interested too! The AP is the best slapback pedal I have heard, but that's all it does.

    AquaPuss, EchoPuss, SupaPuss.

    They're all analog delays. The differences are the feature sets and maximum delay length available.

    Classic slap-back delay is ONE eight-note (or shorter), ONE repeat.

    You should be able to dial this in on just about any delay pedal ever made. It should be way hugely easy on the Supa Puss, with the ability to dial up eighth-notes (among other intervals), plus tap tempo. The tap tempo is a big help on fast tunes, 'cause you need eighth-notes, but only need to tap quarter notes. You kids today have it so easy :p

    Keep the feedback off and all of them will do a slapback.
