The latest offspring from the melding of Boss, Fender and COSM, is the FRV-1 Fender Vintage Reverb Pedal. Taking the classic sound of Fender's dedicated valve driven Spring Reverberator from 1963 and the Boss/Roland knowhow of their Composite Object Sound Modeling technology and not forgetting their ability to make bullet-proof stomps, this little pedal does exactly what it says it should, with a pretty darned faithfull recreation of the Fender Reverb spring sound. It doesn't do plate, halls or any other of that kind of stuff, just the pure valvey spring from yesteryear. This is the source of the sound of surf, rockabilly and blues and more besided.

Features

  • Recreates the legendary sound of the 1963 Fender® Reverb via COSM technology
  • Easy operation with three classic controls for Dwell, Tone, and Mix for creating sounds from buttery warmth to sparkling twang
  • Cool, retro appearance
  • Road-tough BOSS metal construction
  • Up to 10.5 hours battery operation

Amped guitar specialist Rob Chappers, aka The Monkey Lord, took a trip down memory lane.
