The new Fender stompboxes just keep on coming – but do these three multi-talented new units have the sonic chops to match their twiddle-friendly versatility?

It seems Fender’s audacious ‘taking effects pedals seriously’ gambit is paying off. The original line of six stompers has now swelled to 15, and the latest batch includes this tastefully tinted trio: a combined tremolo and reverb, a twin-speed analogue phaser and a valve-powered distortion with added boost. They’re all housed in Fender’s now familiar brushed-aluminium enclosures, with the same dinky LEDs in the control knobs (which can be switched off if you’re anti-dinky). One thing they don’t have, however, is the clever battery compartment design of the previous models…because they’re mains-powered only. This is understandable: the Tre-Verb is digital, the MTG Tube Distortion needs to pump 150 volts to feed its 6205 subminiature valve and even the Lost Highway Phaser demands 80mA of current, which would drain the average PP3 like a toddler downing a Fruit Shoot.
