    Product Description

    Who says that bassists always get the short straw? Fender has put together an all-encompassing tone-machine to give Bass players something to get excited about.

    Combining overdrive, compression and a 3-band EQ the Downtown Express Bass Pedal solves a common nuance in the bass guitar world. Good quality effects in one, easy to use unit. This pedal is described by Fender as a one-stop shop for bass tone-shaping, giving you everything you need for killer tone. Not to mention that it looks super stylish, includes a tuner output for convenience and has switchable LEDs, as found on all of Fender’s latest pedals.

    Built with all types of players in mind, the pedal has a built in mute switch for silent tuning and a direct output making it easy to integrate into any rig, home, stage or studio.

    Perhaps our favourite feature from Fender is that they’ve included a switch that lets you reorder the compressor and overdrive circuits to taste. This means that you can use the Downtown Express Pedal without worrying about the impact on your existing setup. It’s totally flexible to suit your own style, taste and preference.

    This pedal has been designed by Alex Aguilar and is an all-original Fender circuit. The chassis is crafted from lightweight, durable anodized aluminium, and the LED-backlit knobs show your control settings on a dark stage at a glance. Tried and tested by musicians, this piece of equipment is stage ready right out the box, and we’ll think you’ll love it!

    Here's what Fender say about the Downtown Express

    Your one-stop shop for bass tone-shaping, the Downtown Express bass multi-effect puts everything you need for killer bass tone right at your feet. All the bass essentials are there—compressor, 3-band EQ and overdrive—each switchable on its own, or you can use the Mute switch to kill the signal for silent tuning. The Direct Output makes it easy to integrate this pedal into any performance situation—stage or studio. We recognize that a truly powerful signal chain needs to be flexible, so we included a switch that lets you reorder the compressor and overdrive circuits to taste.

    Designed by Alex Aguilar, the Downtown Express is an all-original Fender circuit. To ensure this pedal is performance-ready we let musicians kick it around, took their feedback to heart and refined it. The chassis is crafted from lightweight, durable anodized aluminum, and the LED-backlit knobs show your control settings on a dark stage at a glance.

    Use the Downtown Express on your next gig or session and add some rumble to your rig.

    Looks nice and solid! I haven't used it live yet, but at home it has a very full sound. It is convenient and compact (if a bit heavy), but great for vintage tones because its analogue.

    A really solid pedal & perfect for a novice Bass player looking for a few effects, don’t forget that you’ll need a centre negative power supply to go with it, enjoy.

    Mr MATTHEW Cretney1st Sep 2019

    Great unit for the money. The compressor is fantastic...the overdrive goes from vintage VT all the way through to metal zone madness!! Tuner out is a good touch to keep it out of the pedal chain...great overall style, sound, build. Only negative is the footswitches are quite tight if you have massive shoes on...but hey...it's not an issue!!
