First revealed in January at their dealer meeting, today Fender announces that their Hammertone Effect Pedals are now available. This line of pedals is more approachable with an easy-to-use interface that demystifies pedals and helps players look to take their bass or guitar tone to the next level.

Fender R&D team member Stan Cotey designed these sounds with the intention of creating a credible family of effects to cover a wide range of sounds. This accessible line brings an end-to-end solution to Fender’s iconic sounds to support players as they learn to play or seasoned players that are exploring their creative journey. Used individually or stacked to create a chain, these 9 must-have effects can tackle any tone.

The Fender® Hammertone™ line of effects pedals ($199.00-$229.00 AUD) offer an accessible entry to the Fender® Effects family. Designed by in-house tone guru Stan Cotey, these circuits deliver incredible tone in a compact form-factor with high-quality hardware and player-friendly features. Featuring expert-designed analog and digital renditions of classic effects – Overdrive, Distortion, Fuzz, Chorus, Delay, Reverb and more – these compact pedals deliver gig-worthy tones at an accessible price.

Models include:
● Hammertone™ Distortion – The Hammertone™ Distortion delivers the legendary distorted tones you need for nearly any style of music. The active 2-band Bass and Treble EQ controls provide modern tone-shaping flexibility.

● Hammertone™ Overdrive – Whether you’re pushing your cranked amp into full-blown distortion or just adding some warmth, grit and character to your clean sound, the Hammertone™ Overdrive is an essential addition to your rig. This compact drive packs a big punch – the pre-gain mid boost adds the perfect edge for cutting through the mix.

● Hammertone™ Delay – Delay changes everything. Subtly sweetened leads, clucky country slap back, surfy swells, rhythmic dotted-eighths and huge ambient washes – it’s been a defining factor in just about every genre of guitar music. The Hammertone™ Delay provides up to 950ms of crisp and clean delays, lush modulation at the flick of a switch and three different delay types.

● Hammertone™ Reverb – The Hammertone™ Reverb delivers three classic reverb effects – Hall, Room and Mod – in a compact stomp that will integrate seamlessly into your rig. Powerful damping control and tone switch offer supreme flexibility, while the Fender-designed on-board reverb tones are perfect for subtle to extreme ambience.

● Hammertone™ Fuzz – The Hammertone™ Fuzz captures the iconic splat, saturation and horn-like sustain used on the formative records of rock’n’roll history. Despite its small size, this purple-tinged, psychedelic stompbox is feature-packed with three classic controls, two silicon diodes and an octave fuzz mode – allowing you to recreate the legendary sounds of the ‘60s and ‘70s or forge your own unique tone.

● Hammertone™ Metal – Aggressive and dynamic distortion can be elusive– with powerful tone-shaping EQ controls, top-mounted in and out jacks and true bypass switching, the Hammertone™ Metal delivers chunky high gain that sits perfectly in a mix and will integrate seamlessly into your rig.

● Hammertone™ Chorus – Glassy, shimmering, and bubbly, the Hammertone™ Chorus is a simple and powerful modulation device designed to deliver pristine choral sweeps.

● Hammertone™ Space Delay – Warm, analog-style saturation and gorgeous ‘tape’ warble combine to make the Hammertone™ Space Delay a perfect companion for any ambience-inclined soundscapist. From subtle and natural repeats to awesomely oscillating waves of tone, the Space Delay delivers everything you need to create your next atmospheric masterpiece.

● Hammertone™ Flanger – The Hammertone™ Flanger delivers dramatic, rushing jet stream waves and subtler, swirling tendrils of modulation.
