The Fender Lost Highway analog Phaser Pedal adds unique shades of color, movement, and texture to chords and leads. It sports a look and tone unlike any phaser pedal you’ve played before. An all-original, Fender-designed circuit resides in a robust aluminum chassis and packs some seriously hot tonal commodities. First up is the footswitchable speed control, which toggles fast and slow phasing speeds — each with independent rate and depth — for slow, breathtaking dimensionality to organ-like faster rates, all without touching a knob. The Fender Lost Highway Phaser’s wave switch provides access to triangle and sine waveforms for overdriven Eddie leads to subtler Cure sweetness, alongside switchable 4- and 8-stage phasing for added or reduced resonance. Also unique is the Lost Highway’s Sensitivity control, which increases modulation rate as you pick harder — another sweet hands-free feature. A Fender amp jewel LED gives your pedalboard that classic one-two audiovisual punch.
Durable, player-friendly design
When we ran the Lost Highway phaser pedal through its paces here at Sweetwater, we were impressed by its durable, player-friendly design. It all starts with a rugged yet lightweight anodized aluminum chassis that’s tailor-made for heavy stomping. LED-backlit knobs make it child’s play to see your settings on a dark stage. Swapping out batteries is a breeze, thanks to a patent-applied-for magnetically latched 9-volt battery door.
