The Bends was presented by Fender at NAMM 2018 together with 5 other new pedals. This is a transparent studio-grade compressor featuring controls for Drive and Recovery (i.e. release) and a Blend knob that allows you mix in your dry signal for more natural results.

The Bends is a studio-quality stompbox that tames wild volume spikes without altering your tone. Drive and Recovery controls let you dial in the perfect amount of compression to complement your playing style and extend sustain, while the Blend control lets you mix in the dry signal to maintain your natural pick attack. The Amp Jewel LED changes color from white to pink along with your playing to help show when the compression circuit is engaged and how long your signal is affected.
