The Fender The Bends Compressor Guitar Effects Pedal is perfect for deftly balancing the dynamics of your performance, bringing the subtle nuances of your playing to life. Often used by Nashville's finest to give their clean leads and licks the presence they deserve, compression is perfect for smoothing out signals to improve consistency of tone for enduring sustain. Fender's The Bends Compressor is a pedal that puts studio-quality into a stage-ready stompbox that can give your tone the smooth consistency that it deserves.

Control layout

The Bends' control layout is delightfully intuitive, putting pertinent controls at your fingertips. Across the top you'll find Blend (Dry/Comp), Drive, Recovery, Output Level, and a Bypass Footswitch. The Drive and Recovery controls allow you to dial in the perfect level of compression to find your sweet spot. The Blend control allows you to mix in the dry signal to uphold your natural pick attack. The Amp Jewel LED changes colour from white to pink in line with your playing, indicating when the compression circuit is engaged, and when your signal is affected. This is ideal for keeping on top on things on stage.

Easy to use

Fender's The Bends Compressor has been designed by an expert crew who consulted with a wide base of guitarists to ensure that it is a stage-ready powerhouse. There is a single instrument input, and a single instrument output - nice and simple. The unit can be powered either using a DC power supply, or a 9V battery, which is accessible via Fender's "patent applied for" magnetically latched batter door for quick and easy battery changing.

Robust yet stylish

The chassis is built using lightweight and durable anodized aluminium, which allows it to slip sleekly into your existing pedalboard setup. The amp jewel LED upholds classic Fender style, whilst the cleverly designed LED-backlit knobs show your control settings clearly, even on the darkest of stages.
