A simple, ambient-minded pedal that features plate-style reverb and selectable subdivisions.

Huntington Park, CA (June 13, 2017) -- The Ethereal reverb and delay pedal instantly transports your sound to a world of lush and spacious tonal ambience. From classic rock to modern soundscapes and all musical points inbetween, this pedal sends every note played into sonic bliss. The Ethereal's intuitive design means you no longer have to stack effects, or get a degree in computer programming, to nail an ambient guitar tone that will truly inspire. Its two onboard delays are massaged via a familiar set of controls, including a push-button rhythmic subdivision selector, while the gorgeous plate-style reverb is blended in with a turn of a single knob. Add in the Trails button for a buffered bypass option that allows your effect to continue when the pedal is switched off, and you have a pedal that sonically goes toe-to-toe with any powerhouse time-based effect pedal, while being the people’s champion in ease-of-use. While the Ethereal is an ambient powerhouse, regular delay and reverb functions are available and already laid out in a familiar and simple layout. It just doesn’t get any easier to dial in than this!

Ambiance on Demand

The Ethereal reverb and delay pedal basks your guitar in glorious washes of reverb and delay working in concert to create a tone that is as much an experience as it is a sound. But unlike many similarly voiced units, you don’t need an overwhelming manual to achieve it. With a cursory glance at the pedal, you may already understand how to bring up the plate reverb, how to nail the exact blend and tone of delay you’re searching for, and how to get each delay’s timing just right. You can even use each effect individually, making the Ethereal even more versatile.

  • Envelope your tone in otherworldly ambiance with the push of a button
  • Effortless to dial in
  • Thick, yet clear-sounding plate-style reverb
  • Delay controlled via standard feedback, tone, mix, and delay knobs
  • Bring in a second, perfectly timed delay with the Delay Mode button

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
