Fender Pugilist Review

May 23, 2023

Fiery sounding and flexible, the Pugilist Distortion is ready to add some heavyweight gain to your rig. This original design features dual gain engines with independent tone controls for each — letting you select multiple variations of distortion, ensuring this pedal will fit perfectly into any rig. You can run the two engines in parallel or series, and a Blend control lets you mix them together, opening up a whole new world of tones ranging from rhythm distortion to fat, saturated lead. And if you need more drive, there's a Bass Boost switch that fattens up the engine for brute tone.

BLEND CONTROL: The Pugilist's blend control mixes your dry and effected signals to taste, bringing out your pick attack for complex, articulate tone with lively transients. TONE CONTROLS: The versatile per-channel tone controls let you shape your sounds exactly, and make it easy to use this pedal with any amp – even ones that have a bright switch. LED-ILLUMINATED KNOBS: LED-illuminated knobs show your control settings at a glance, even on dark stages. STAGE-READY CONSTRUCTION: Every Fender effects pedal is crafted from lightweight, durable anodized aluminum, designed to withstand the rigors of touring.
