Fender have released a fantastically three dimensional distortion pedal onto the market, in the form of the "Pugilist" pedal. In a brushed gold finish, this pedal is more than just a bold looking piece of gear. The Pugilist distortion is capable of producing the full, rich, beefy tone of true stacked pedals - and not only that; it features 2 drive controls, as well as independent tone controls for each to ensure fire as well as flexibility.
This all-original, all-Fender designed circuit includes a series/blend switch that lets the user stack channels for thick, cascading distortion, while the Bass Boost switch bulks up your tone. The Blend control mixes the two channels to get the best of both worlds, crafting a sound that suits each and every individual.
All of this madness is contained within a superb looking, lightweight, durable anodized aluminium chassis with a convenient 9V battery holder which just pops out - in order to complete this ultra durable and super convenient pedal. Not to mention that it makes a very cool looking addition to any pedalboard.
