Fender The Pelt

Thanks for purchasing The Pelt — a flexible fuzz pedal with a wide range of saturated sounds. Driven by silicon transistors, this pedal ranges from full on wall of fuzz to smooth, harmonically rich drive. Midrange boost and thickness toggles work to help find the perfect textures for your sound.


This control adjusts your output level when the fuzz is engaged.


This controls the high frequencies present in your signal. Use it like a tone control on your guitar or bass–keep it all the way up for the full frequency range of your instrument or roll it back to mellow out the treble.


This controls the attack of the fuzz effect. As the control sweeps from Soft to Hard, the fuzz signal changes from smoother, violin like attack to abrupt and splattered saturation.


This controls the pedal’s fuzz level. Add more saturation by rotating the control clockwise.

Thick Switch

This switch allows more of your bass frequencies through the circuit to fatten up your fuzz tone.

Mid Switch

This three-position switch shapes your instrument’s midrange by boosting or cutting mids to contour your punch and presence. Leave the switch in the middle position to keep your midrange unaffected.

Jewel Indicator

The Jewel Indicator shows when the fuzz effect is active.


This rugged footswitch bypasses the fuzz.

Input Jack

This is a high-impedance input suitable for electric guitar, bass, keyboards and other instruments.

Output Jack

This is a low-impedance output jack that connects to the amp or to the next effect pedal in the signal chain.

DC Power Connector

This is a standard, center-negative 9VDC jack for use with appropriate power supplies.

LED Kill Switch

This switch extinguishes the LEDs that illuminate the knobs—useful in maximizing battery life when running the pedal from batteries.

Low Battery Indicator

This red LED on the front of the battery door illuminates when battery voltage drops below a set threshold, indicating that the battery should be replaced soon.
