The Fender Runaway Feedback Pedal is a natural feedback simulator that lets guitarists create feedback-type sounds easily and at any volume.

Scottsdale, AZ (October 25, 2012) -- Fender announced today on their website the Runaway Feedback Pedal. Here are the details from fender.com:

The Fender Runaway Feedback Pedal is a natural feedback simulator that lets guitarists create feedback-type sounds easily and at any volume. Developed as a collaboration with Softube, the feedback effect can be added and controlled simply by adjusting the controls and engaging the "expression pedal" which responds to vibrato, bends, slides and tremolo. Controllable harmonic content and "wet only" signal options add great tonal flexibility to a pedal that encourages creativity, experimentation and fun.

Features:

  • Realistic feedback simulation
  • Feedback level knob controls amount of feedback effect
  • Tolerance knob controls the sensitivity
  • Harmonic selector switch lets you choose among fundamental, upper-fifth and sub-octave harmonics in different preset combinations
  • "Expression" pedal lets feedback fade in and out
  • LED indicates feedback effect use
  • "Full Wet" switch simulates backward-recording effects
  • One-year limited warranty
  • Included power supply
The pedal has an MSRP of $199.99. Here's a demo video Fender released of the pedal in action:

How to Reamp Your Guitar | Recording Dojo

This well-established, simple technique opens up a new world of sonic possibilities.

[Originally published February 14, 2022]
Welcome to another Dojo! This time I’m going to show you how to reamp your guitar and explore some creative ways you can re-amps other tracks as well (soft synths, vocals, drums, etc.). In my earlier column “Why Guitarists Shouldn’t Diss DIs,” I mentioned the benefits of using a DI for creative recording. If you have a DI box, dust it off! You’ll need it when I show you how to get more out of your DI-recorded guitar and bass tracks by reamping them into your pedals and amps to capture new perspectives and even add some new reverberant spaces. Tighten up your belts, the Dojo is now open.
