The newest assortment of effects pedals from Fender are hitting stores around Australia today - here's your comprehensive guide to what to expect from the new stompboxes.
The Fender Reflecting Pool, a high-end Reverb/Delay unit which offers a range of rhythmic and ambient sounds. Each side of the pedal features control knobs for Time, Variation and Quality rates, and there's also a dedicated tap-tempo switch in the centre, as well as stereo ins and outs, USB functionality and reversible routing paths.
The Fender Compuglist, fuses analogue compression and distortion for a stacked, hard-edged tone. Each side features its own circuit path and controls, allowing you to use both channels in unison or independently.
The Fender Smolder, an acoustic overdrive effect that boasts a Pickup Compensation control to help tame the high frequencies of Piezo pickups, as well as inbuilt cabinet simulation, a drive knob, filter controls and a three-band EQ.
The Fender Pour Over, an envelope filter with an inbuilt distortion circuit, which features an array of knobs to adjust the high-pass, low-pass and band-pass rates, as well as sweep direction, Q, level, and gain controls.
The Fender Trapper Fuzz offers two independent fuzz voices (octave fuzz and gated fuzz), with each boasting their own global contour and tone control.
The Fender MTG: LA adds a bit of a hard-edged twist on their previously released MTG Distortion, utilising a NOS 6025 preamp tube to give the unit a hotter distortion tone in order to nail the metal tones of the Sunset Strip in the '80s.
