Fender treats us all to the brand new Fender Effects Pedal Series!
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 set to further own ‘tone’ with six 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.
Fender helped generate the classic guitar tones that inspired players to create new music, and now with the Santa Ana Overdrive, Fender brought their expertise to stompboxes. Armed with FET technology, this pedal lets you dial in sounds varying from “just a little hairy” all the way to thick, fully saturated overdrive. The flexible tone controls unlock a wide range of sonic flavors. This pedal cleans up with the guitar’s volume control, just like our famous amplifiers.Designed by our in-house team of experts, the Santa Ana Overdrive is an all-original circuit.
Reverb is an essential element in nearly any rig. Whether you’re adding dimension to your sound or drenching your signal in sparkling reflections, the Marine Layer Reverb can do it all. Multiple reverb types, including classics like Hall and Room along with modern marvels like Shimmer, make this an indispensable pedal in your signal chain. The reverb tails continue when the effect is muted, ensuring a smooth and natural decay.

There’s no denying the power of a good delay; ranging from subtle to smashing, this ambient effect is one of the cornerstones of modern music. The Mirror Image Delay brings this atmospheric effect to your rig, giving you the ability to create depth with a simple slapback or develop an epic soundscape with modulated repeats.
Digital, Analog, and Tape modes, each with two voicing variations make this expressive and inspiring pedal indispensable. It even has the option to add a dotted-eighth note for those Irish-inspired washes of sound. The delay tails continue when the pedal is bypassed, ensuring a natural sound.
Fiery sounding and flexible, the Pugilist Distortion is ready to add some heavyweight gain to your rig. This original design features dual gain engines with independent tone controls for each letting you select multiple variations of distortion, ensuring this pedal will play well with any rig. Series/Blend switch lets you stack channels for thick, cascading distortion, while the Bass Boost switch fattens up your tone. The best of both worlds, crafting a sound just for you.

Dynamics are a crucial part of playing music. When controlled they bring music to life, but uneven or wild playing can ruin a performance. Fender put their expertise to work creating The Bends Compressor, a studio-quality stompbox that tames wild volume spikes without altering your tone.
Drive and Recovery controls let you dial in the perfect amount of compression to complement your playing style and extend sustain, while the Blend control lets you mix in the dry signal to maintain your natural pick attack. The Amp Jewel LED changes color from white to pink along with your playing to help show when the compression circuit is engaged and how long your signal is affected.
From single-coil to humbucking pickups the output varies, potentially causing a nightmare when it comes to dialing in your tone with multiple guitars through the same rig. If you’re using one guitar through a complex pedalboard, your signal strength can also suffer due to cable capacitance.
Enter the Level Set Buffer, a brilliant buffer pedal that lets you easily swap guitars without negatively affecting your tone. This original design features Level, Hi-Freq and Load controls to adjust the signal, along with a Main Mute footswitch for silent tuning. The tuner output lets your tuner be always on without interrupting your signal path.
