Shane is currently looking at the new-for-2018 Fender pedals, and today he’s looking at the Pugilist Distortion Pedal.
I’ve featured a number of Pugilist demos on the blog now, and one thing I’m struck by is just how different this pedal sounds when it’s running into a Hot Rod Deluxe mk 4 vs just about any other amp. The tones that Danish Pete got out of this pedal convinced me to go and get one for myself. None of the other demos had that impact on me.
Anyway, have a listen to Shane’s demo, and see what you think. And then, as always, please head over to YouTube to leave a like and a supportive comment.
Pete Thorn has posted his demo of Fender’s 2018 Pedal range. If you want to hear what they sound like together in a mix, this is the demo for you.
Rather than go through every single tone the pedals offer, he breaks down a complete song, showing what he used for each part – and letting us hear them soloed out.
I love the tones Pete gets from the Santa Ana Overdrive in this video. I’ve already got the Pugilist, and it sounds great with a Tele. The Santa Ana with humbuckers … that’s a sound that I do have a need for. Not too long until pay day 🙂

We’ve already seen AStrings demo the new Fender pedals, and now it’s the turn of Andertons. Watch the Captain and Danish Pete give you their thoughts on them here:
They’ve got all six pedals out, running them into a Victory V40 Deluxe and a Hot Rod Deluxe v4. These two amps sound very different to the Bassbreaker that AStrings used in their demos, so even if you watched all the excellent AStrings demos, the Andertons’ video offers a different look at these new pedals.

Tom and Adam from AStrings have just uploaded another demo of one of Fender’s new 2018 pedals: the Pugilist Distortion. This one has some serious chunk to it!
There’s two separate gain circuits in the Pugilist. You’ve got the option of running a blend of them together, or stacking one into the other in series. Either one results in very thick and meaty tone.
