For over six decades, Fender has been a leader in sonic innovation, with groundbreaking offerings like the Stratocaster, P-Bass and early amplification. Now, Fender is now set to further own ‘tone’ with another three new all-original effects pedals, allowing everybody to create their own unique sounds. Born and designed in Southern California, Fender’s new pedals were engineered with insight from professional gigging and studio musicians, artists and some of the industry’s best minds.
Packed with brutal, high-gain tone and sound-shaping options galore, the Full Moon Distortion pedal has everything you need to unleash sonic mayhem. Both symmetrical and asymmetrical clipping modes are lurking under the Texture switch while the Bite switch shifts the upper-midrange and harmonics to bring out your pick attack, letting you cut and chug through the mix with ease. The 3-Band EQ lets you dial in your sound to taste, while the flexible Hi-Treble control shapes your high end. The second footswitch kicks in up to 12dB of snarling post-gain Boost.
A good fuzz pedal is indispensable—this gloriously splatty, satisfying sound has been the cornerstone of rock tone for decades. An all-original design, The Pelt Fuzz has a few tricks hidden up its sleeve. All the familiar controls are there: Level, Fuzz and Tone, along with a Bloom control to shape the contours of your sound. Our secret-weapon Mid switch lets you boost or cut the midrange for even more voicing options, while the Thick switch adds some girth to your sound.
Every now and then you need to kick your sound up a notch. Whether you’re looking for more volume or fatter tone, the Engager Boost is the ideal clean boost pedal. The onboard 3-band EQ lets you shape your tone to cut through a mix while the Frequency switch lets you select the middle frequency range, ideal for shaping your tone precisely. The Engager Boost is also perfect for boosting your signal into a tube amplifier’s preamp, thickening your tone. True and buffered bypass modes ensure this pedal plays nicely in any rig.
