JHS Pedals Panther Cub V2 Delay Pedal
The Panther Cub V2 an analogue delay pedal that is half the size of its predecessors, delivering a wide range of classic delay and modulation tones - sweeping ambience, vintage warmth, dreamy chorus effects, classic dark repeats, slapback echo and fast tempo synched repeats, making this a versatile delay pedal that’s great for anyone who wants an authentic analogue delay.
The Panther Cub V2 has 2 control knobs - Time, which lets you control the delay time up to 1000ms, Volume, which is not commonly found on delay pedals and is a great way to make lead parts jump out, Mix, which controls just the volume of the delay repeats, Ratio, which lets you select between four different tap subdivisions - ¼, ⅛, dotted ⅛ and triplets, Feedback which controls the number of delay repeats, and EQ which is an active tilt-style control, so turning it clockwise will boost the highs and cut the lows, and turning it anti-clockwise will boost the lows and cut the highs.
It uses four 3205 Bucket Brigade chips which go back to the late 60’s when these chips were considered modern over the traditional tape delays widely used at the time. A chip has a line of tiny capacitors that each store a sample of audio, and they pass the sample to the next capacitor as new audio goes into the circuit. It produces a lower resolution sample than the modern delay pedals of today, but that is part of making it sound authentic.
There are input and output jacks as well as a Tap / Expression pedal jack, and the left footswitch on the Panther Cub V2 is the Bypass switch, and the right footswitch is the Tap Tempo switch so you can tap in the speed of the delay. On the side, there’s a Mod on/off and Mod Speed switch.
In 2011, we released the Panther Analog Delay. Almost exactly two years later in 2013, we tried a nearly impossible feat of taking everything we love about the Panther Delay, making a few improvements, and packaging it into an enclosure half the size. Today in 2018 we’re repeating the feat and making the Panther Cub V2 half the size once again!
WHAT’S NEW ON THE V2?
Half the size of the Panther Cub V1 and Panther Cub V1.5
Fully Wet Mix now available
Gain Control to set overall volume
Even smoother oscillation and run-away
Active EQ, which functions at a Tilt style EQ
100% ANALOG BUCKET BRIGADE TECHNOLOGY
The Panther Cub V2 is voiced to deliver the dark and chewy repeats that analog delay fans clamor for. The Panther Cub offers you 1,000ms (one full second) of delay time! Bring in beautiful, ambient modulation with the pedal’s modulation controls.
1,000ms of Delay (1 full second)
Four 3205 Bucket Brigade Delay chips
Onboard Modulation that stays accurate even when using Tap Tempo
EXTENSIVE ONBOARD CONTROL
Thanks to its groundbreaking feature set, the Panther Cub Delay has been one of our most intriguing pedals to date. It’s not often you find an all-analog delay with onboard tap tempo and a 4-section RATIO control with settings for quarter, dotted-eighth, eighth, and triplet divisions. In fact, our original Panther Delay was the first to do it in 2011!
Soft-touch Tap Tempo switch
4-position RATIO control (1/4, 1/8, dotted 1/8, Triplets)
True Speed LED (indicates rate of actual delay)
EXTERNAL TONE-SHAPING POWER
The Panther Cub’s control and tweakability extend further than what you’ll find onboard. An expression pedal input can be assigned to change many of the pedal’s settings on the fly. And you even have the opportunity to externally control your tap tempo and tap slave the Panther Cub to your other time-based pedals.
Dry Out (via TRS splitter) for stereo field of sound
Assignable Expression (control Time, Ratio, Modulation)
Tap Input/Output allows external tap controller or tap slaving
ADDITIONAL PANTHER CUB BENEFITS:
Even smaller Pedalboard-friendly size
Space-saving top-mounted Input/Output jacks
True Bypass Switching
Standard 9V DC negative power
THIS PEDAL REQUIRES STANDARD 9V DC NEGATIVE POWER, CONSUMES 67MA, AND MEASURES 2.2"X4.8"X1.6".
