Anybody played the new Fender Pedals?
« on: March 01, 2018, 01:54:32 PM »
Looks like Fender did itís homework on their new line of pedals. Has anyone had first hand experience with them? Great demos online.
I sometimes build pedals as "Dan"
I built peddles for Bat Thumbís car.

Andy (now with reverb.com) did a review of the.. reverb lol and it sounded great but some commenter went off on how it's basically a sound overused by Praise and Worship bands and he hated it. I like the shimmery stuff and have never honestly listened to a P+W band or recordings so I dunno. The comment put me off though. "It's that stupid praise and worship sound"

Ouch.  There is definitely a P&W "sound" that gets over used but "stupid" is not the phrase I use to describe it.  Any more than I'd call the typical Nashville sound "stupid".  It is what it is.

Unforuantely comment sections on music sites have also been infiltrated with the garbage that plagues most websites. Seems like those commenters are getting more and more popular blog and news entries. Itís a sad, anonymous world. I used to get angry when I read blatently false or unjust comments. Now itís just sad.

Well Iíve got a whole pocket of I donít give a $Ä#% about what some Millennial thinks about the pedal (yes I am a millennial myself). I care what the pedal sounds like. I saw them online the other day and they look cool. And thatís impressive, especially for Fender (I joke). Iíll have to give Andyís video a watch. He always has great reviews.

I remember giving them a look when they were first announced. Nothing particularly special jumped out at me, other than thinking the battery holster was ridiculously breakable looking.

Here is Andy's vid:




The shimmer verb flavor and 3 knob control scheme (plus level) makes me wonder if its got an FV-1 under the hood, or if they're using a different DSP chip for it. Same question I had for the delay box in this line.

The shimmer effect, reminds me a lot of one of the settings on the Supernatural
Pedal. Which I have and love. I keep it set on spring and plate reverb, which really
Helps emulate that springy sound. I don't here this on the Fender. Just seems
Like another flavor of reverb out there.
