Fender The Bends Compressor Pedal

As a guitarist, there are few things worse than getting carried away with your playing mid-song, only to ruin the performance due to unpredictable changes in dynamics. Compression is a good effect to ensure that this doesn't happen, and is frequently used in recording studios to that effect, but compressor pedals for guitar can often fall flat and cause an unavoidable loss of tone during the compression process.

Enter "The Bends", an all-new, studio-grade Compressor Pedal from Fender that comes at an attractive price!

The Latest Sound-Sculpting Offering from Fender

The Bends helps to tame those wild volume spikes and bring everything in line with your parameter settings, but without negatively affecting your tone. Drive and Recovering allow you to dial in the perfect amount of compression to compliment your play style; Blend lets you mix in your dry signal to maintain your natural pick attack sounds; whilst Level allows you to set the pedal's overall output, ensuring that none is lost once the pedal is engaged!

Additionally, this wonderful little pedal features an Amp Jewel LED for that classic Fender look, which actually changes colour from white to pink, alerting you when the circuit engages and for how long. Not only that, but as with all of Fenders new pedals, The Bends features a brand new, "patent applied for", magnetically latched door, allowing for fast and easy access to the 9v battery.


  • A studio-quality Compressor effect in stompbox form
  • Tames wild volume spikes without affecting your tone
  • Blend control allows you to mix in the dry signal to maintain your natural pick attack
  • Amp jewel LED changes colour from white to pink to alert you when the compression circuit engages
  • Lightweight and durable anodized aluminium chassis makes the pedal tour-ready straight out the box
  • "Patent applied for" magnetically latched 9v battery door makes battery changing faster than ever
