Boss FRV-1 Fender Reverb Pedal Praised
The FRV-1 has Dwell, Tone and Mix controls, and like most Boss Effects Pedals can be powered by either a 9V battery or an external power supply.
One of the most obvious attractions of the FRV-1 is how it brings the classic 1963 Fender Reverb in one compact unit.
As Sound on Sound's reviewer wrote:
"You get all the good bits of a '63 Fender Valve Reverb in a package that you can shove in your gig-bag, stow in the back of your amp or stick onto your pedalboard."
In terms of actual performance, The FRV-1 impressed yet again.
"The FRV1's knobs accurately emulate the actions of the originals, and the resulting reverb is a very close approximation of the Fender's warm, all-encompassing, twangy tonality, and its range, which can go from the subtlest of background jazz shimmers to the total wet madness of full-on surf, via all points in between and beyond."
This digital re-creation of the legendary 1963 Fender Spring Reverb is available now.
