If you're after a delay with tons of ambient wash, the Hungry Robot The Wash V2 is the perfect pedal for you.
The Wash V2 is an analogue-style tap-tempo delay offering over 1,000ms of delay time. The unique Wash circuit adds reverb to the mix in a way that replicates and even supersedes the technique of stacking several reverb and delay pedals in series.
The Wash Circuit
The Wash circuit adds reverb directly to the signal, but also utilises a complex of internal feedback loops, a multi-head Binson effect, and what founder Eric calls "ripple effect". The result is a hauntingly beautiful and subtle wash of reverb and delay which sits well in the mix and retains the clarity of the original signal.
What is Ripple Effect?
The ripple effect is just one part of the Wash circuit but is the only element that can be individually adjusted, using the Ripple control. With each successive delay, the trail is slowly scattered in an organic fashion and morphs into reverb.
What's New in V2?
The original Hungry Robot The Wash pedal housed a large PCB and 3 footswitches in a necessarily large enclosure.
The V2 has slimmed the footprint down by efficiently packaging the PCB (without changing the circuit at all) and eliminating the footswitchable option for the Wash circuit - this is now permanently on. A Time control has also been added for fine-tuning delay time.
