Bender Effect


Recommended Posts



This is my first post, so I'd like to begin by saying that I've owned my Amplifi 75 for several months now and absolutely love it.  At first I didn't think that the audio quality coming out of it was very good, but after pumping some music through it for a few hours to break in the speaker it sounds great now.


I also bought the FBV Shortboard MKII to go with it, which has also been great.


However, I have a question that relates to the Shortboard and the Bender effect.


I was reading through the list of amps/cabs/effects ( and noticed that it says under the Bender effect:


"Bender â€“ This effect lets you control a change of pitch using an FBV pedal connected to a AMPLIFi. You can set one amount of pitch shift for the heel position of the pedal, and another amount of pitch shift for the two, then rock on the pedal to change pitch from one setting to another."


The pedal on the Shortboard has no control over the Bender effect, which I've read in a few posts here, so what pedal is being referenced above?  I'd like to be able to do a Lonely Boy type dive effect without having to buy a Boss Harmonist pedal, or a whammy pedal.
