FENDER Doubles Up on New Distortion and Reverb Pedals

Fender has doubled up on its usual Pugilist Distortion and Marine Layer Reverb to create the Duel Pugilist Distortion and Dual Marine Layer Reverb. Because why only have one pedal when you can have two pedals, but at the same time?

First, there’s the Duel Pugilist Distortion pedal, which features the same distortion voicings found on the regular Pugilist pedal alongside new ways to combine them. The Duel Pugilist Distortion pedal offers Series, Mute and Parallel operating modes, allowing you to stack the distortions, blend ’em together, or use just one and replace the second slot with another pedal altogether.

The Duel Pugilist Distortion pedal also features a master two-band EQ and LED backlit knobs. The pedal is available here for $229.99.

Then there’s the Dual Marine Layer Reverb, which offers two independent footswitchable settings and three unique reverb algorithms. The Dual Marine Layer Reverb features two presets/channels, a sustain footswitch, an analog dry path, and LED backlit knobs. The pedal is available here for $229.99.
