You think Rotary Pedals are boring? Think again! Fender has created the Pinwheel Rotary Speaker Emulator that’ll blow your mind!
This pedal features not one, not two, but three different rotary speaker modes, including Fender’s very own Vibratone effect. The Pinwheel pedal makes it easy to add this swirling sound to your tonal toolbox. Stereo inputs and selectable voicings mean this pedal can slot seamlessly in to your existing rig.
You’ve got dual switchable speeds on tap for you to mess with and a smidgen of overdrive to give your sound that little extra colour. Similar to the Fender Bubbler Chorus pedal, the on-board sensitivity control allows modulation rate changes based on your playing dynamics. The effect gets more intense, the harder you play!
Designed by Fenders in-house team, the Pinwheel is an all-original Fender circuit and comes in a stylish polished-style chassis. On the top plate, you’ll also find the option to switch LEDs, voicing from guitar to keys and dynamics. It’ll also take an expression pedal too! A great introduction to rotary speaker effects for musicians of all abilities and styles.
