Fender launches two new guitar pedals for 2021: the Duel Pugilist and the Dual Marine Layer
Fender has released a veritable boatload of new gear for the summer of 2021, among which are two new guitar pedals. Both are updated, doubled-up versions of previously existing pedals: the Pugilist distortion and the Marine Layer reverb.

Appropriately swapping out Dual for Duel here is the Duel Pugilist, a punchy double distortion pedal that features the same distortion voicings found in the original, but with new combination modes. It has three: Series, Mute and Parallel. Series mode stacks the two distortions as you would with two separate pedals, while Parallel mode allows for the blending of two different distortion sounds, or a clean sound with a distorted sound. Mute mode offers the ability to use one distortion to create your main tone and then layer the second distortion on top.
The pedal also adds a two-band master shelving EQ, to tame flubbing bass or shrill highs.
Lists for $229.99 / £179.99 / €199.99.
Dual Marine Layer Reverb
The Dual Marine Layer features two independent footswitchable settings, as well as three unique reverb algorithms. There’s also a sustain switch to generate “massive atmospheric creations.” The double-footswitch function switches between two sets of controls for damping, time, modulation and level. The sustain switch is a footswitch, allowing you to hold soundscapes indefinitely, hands-free.
Lists for $229.99, £194.99, €219.99.
