A reissue of the classic Fender Blender sold from 1968 to 1977.

Fender Blender(TM) Custom

There are few Fender products with as much "indie cred" as the Fender Blender. Once thought of as an overly harsh fuzz pedal, the Blender, thanks to players like Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins and Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine, is now a coveted, and rare, vintage pedal. Original Blender pedals routinely sell on ebay for between $300-400. Like we have done with guitars & amps, we are reissuing this pedal to satisfy the demand that has surged past the supply on the vintage market.
The beauty of this pedal is that it does not sound like anything else on the market. It has a totally unique voice. This is a pedal made for players who want to create instead of copy. With a bit of experimentation, a player can get countless sounds out of this pedal, some that were intended and some that were not.
The Blender can be used for leads by metal players looking for an ultra-aggressive tone. This will replace other Octave/Fuzz pedals on pedalboards throughout the land.

Not worth the price

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender Blender Custom Octave/Fuzz Pedal:

This pedal for me was really a one trick horse. If you wanted to get that early Smashing Pumpkins sound this does it. It is a great sound too, but for me it wasn't worth the price for just that. I

fender blender is a good product

Comments about Fender Blender Custom Octave/Fuzz Pedal:

fender blender is a very awesome distortion, the sound is so thick it just blows off your fucking face. Sometimes I just like to set my guitar on my wall and strike the 6th string and mess with the knobs and it sounds so fucking awesome. its too good not to buy. there is a own side to it, you need a good amp to get the best fucking sound from this pedal and the tone boost and just regular distortion will sound really good. Trust me.....

a pedal that sounds completely different

By 

from atlanta ga

Comments about Fender Blender Custom Octave/Fuzz Pedal:

If you want a completely different tone to play rhythm or lead guitar, then you should consider getting this pedal. For the price, you will not find a better one. I've tried the graphic fuzz from ehx and I like the blender better. The blend feature on the pedal lets you mix some clean in with the fuzz so you can really mold your sound.

Sweet Pedal

By 

from Monrovia IN

Comments about Fender Blender Custom Octave/Fuzz Pedal:

This thing is harsh, it can produce sweet harmonics or complete total destruction. The tone boost really boosts the highs and makes the sound stand out, very good, it sounds nothing like a Big Muff, so if you are considering one or the other, get both! The Fender Blender has an octave effect on it. Hold vibrato on a note and it raises and squeals, then gradually rolls back into the mix, it takes a while to tweak the pedal to perfection but when you get your sound nailed, write it down, and then keep messing with it. You can get so many sounds from a light crunch to a screaming ball of fuzz. This pedal is awesome, the only thing I don't like about it is that the guitar and amp inputs are reversed, which can easily be fixed with a 12" patch cable, but still an inconvenience in some situations.
