UNIQUE DESIGN FEATURES
There are a few unique design features that set Fender effects pedals apart from the other options out there. Tone aside, guitarists and musicians will enjoy the likes of the bright LED Fender amp jewels which adorn each pedal, allowing you to see when your pedal is on.

These Fender FX pedals have been designed to take the harsh rigours of the road and keep on giving! Power isn’t a problem, as each pedal is powered via either a 9V adapter or 9V battery – which is easily accessible via the magnetic battery door. Quick battery changes are a breeze on the Fender FX pedals range.
