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 play well with any rig. Series/Blend switch lets you stack channels for thick, cascading distortion, while the Bass Boost switch fattens up your tone. The Blend control mixes the two channels to get the best of both worlds, crafting a sound just for you.

The chassis is crafted from lightweight, durable anodized aluminum, and the Amp Jewel LED gives your pedalboard the classic Fender look. The LED-backlit knobs show your control settings on a dark stage at a glance, and swapping batteries is quicker and easier than ever with Fender's exclusive magnetically latched 9V battery door.

Ranging from brutal to subtle, the Pugilist Distortion can satisfy all your distortion needs.

Jammed with a buddy on this pedal for hours through a Fender Excelsior amp. Super Strat sounded fat and full of character, pedal maintained the guitar tone and boosted it, you could tweak it into natural grit or get nasty. Fantastic tone! Cons: switch is loud and super mechanical, battery door is cool, but hard to put the battery in and you might break something in there...

This pedal dials in perfectly with my rig. Don?t let the affordability trick you into thinking this thing doesn?t rule. It saves you room on your pedalboard. I usually stack drives and distortions, but this baby took two other pedals off my loop. Sounds good with a little dirt, but also boasts a huge and saturated distortion sound. Easy to tweak to your liking. Definitely looking into some of the other options on fenders new pedal line up.
