Retro-inspired fuzz pedal based on Kevin Shields' tone from the ’80s and ’90s.

The Fender Shields Blender effects pedal is inspired by Kevin Shields, an innovator who awakened iconic sonic walls of fuzz and defined the tone of alternative rock in the ’80s and ’90s. His tool of choice for fuzz laden chaos was an original Fender Blender effects pedal, prized for its dynamic response and gripping fuzz splatter. Now, through over four years of co-development Fender and Shields have resurrected this mythical 1970s fuzz and injected a subversive feature set, creating the Fender Shields Blender.

At its core, the Fender Shields Blender echoes the tone of Shields' own vintage 1970s Fender Blender, thanks to carefully hand tracing the circuit from his personal fuzz box. Built around this vintage circuit are entirely new ways of controlling and blending the original fuzz voice, all crafted with performance in mind utilizing four easy-access footswitches. Two footswitchable channels of fuzz, each with dedicated level controls, offer the ability to blend the fuzz voice with your clean signal or to blend the fuzz voice with a beefy suboctave fuzz, while the sag footswitch introduces sputtering and ducking effects like never before heard, all controlled by the intensity of your playing dynamics.
