After the amp pedals, this comes as no big surprise.

It's go-go, not cry-cry.

Oh my... that pedal sounds terrible. He shouldn't have used the vibrato on that deluxe pedal either...

Sounded decent for the Country portion, but it still sounded like onboard reverb on 3-4. And the surf portion was an abortion.

why Fender don´t call a REAL surf player for the video? Confused

Easy operation with three classic controls for Dwell, Tone, and Mix for creating sounds from buttery warmth to sparkling twang

I prefer my "I Can't Believe It's Not Reverb," reverb pedal.

I didn't hear the 'booch' once in any of those samples.

I like analog personally.

Well, with the huge succes of the EH Holy Grail this had to come. That country-picking stuff sounds cool to me - also soundwise. The rest......oh well ;-).

Oh, pew, wasn't it ever?. Would've be nice if he'd at least learned the song.

It takes a lot of mussel memory to avoid clams.

No drip? At least not present enough to really tell. Meh.

I wish he didnt use the shitty trem on the surf protion...couldent really hear the drip...or if there was any, I bet id like it way more than the holy grail. Sounds like a RI tank to me from here, Im sure some one will bring one of those to the store for me to check out.

I give em a thumbs up for trying, Instead of buying a $700 RI tank you can now buy a $100 pedal ( i assume its $100 ish bux)

At least surf is kind of looked at buy manufacturers, thats a good thing, normally we are forgotten.

Give me reverb or give me death!

In a word - copyright. That's why he played something 'similar' to pipeline, I'm sure a guitarist his age knows how it goes. You can't use copyrighted music in an advertisement without paying heavily.

I thought it sounded OK-ish in as much as it did have a bright tonality that was reminiscent of a tank without being too harsh. For all sorts of reasons, I find it unlikely that a digital reverb is ever going to 'booch' or drip convincingly. It sounded quite nice on the country stuff.

I also think it would have been a lot more helpful if he had not used the other pedals with it but had just used the pedal in question between him and an amp.

I'd be interested enough to go and have a play about with one - I liked it's character better than a lot of digital reverb pedalsand it's not practical to take my tank to every non-surf gig.

I bet Fender were delighted that he used a Tele then a Strat yet avoided their brand completely for the demo!

I completely understand why he couldn't actually play Pipeline, but it's too bad he couldn't demonstrate a little more enthusiasm. Geez. He played as if he were being forced at gunpoint.

Gee....maybe Fender doesn't have ANY employees ANYWHERE that play surf guitar. Hmmm Rolling Eyes

I'm sure Fender does -- but this was Boss. If it'd been Fender, he sure wouldn't have been playing a generic Tel-O-Blaster for the Kountry and a G&L for the surf.

Oh yeah I agree - it was pretty tired.

Fake Tele, fake Bassman, fake reverb tank = haha!

No, it really doesn't.

At least surf is kind of looked at buy manufacturers, thats a good thing, normally we are forgotten.

They may have initially made it for Neil Young types, of course...
then thought, "hey, aren't there still people actually playing surf music?" Fender is goofier than I thought if they expected surf players to abandon their tanks.

I'm trying out the demo version of Amplitube Fender, which also has a 63 Reverb emulator. It actually sounds very good, quite convincing, but it uses up a lot of RAM, especially with the Dwell/Mix cranked - much more than just the amp emulator.

Which makes me think we won't be seeing any realistic digital '63 Reverb emulating pedals in the near future - a pedal isn't going to have the processing power of a PC.

This demo defused and curiosity I had about that unit. Pedal alternatives are interesting, not that any can replace outboard units. I have a Hermida reverb pedal on the way ... we'll see what that one can do.
