Boss FRV-1 Pedal
The legendary 1963 Fender Spring Reverb is back thanks to the engineers at Boss. A digital re-creation of this much loved reverb is now available in the form of the Boss FRV-1.
This month, Performing Musician Magazine has been taking the pedal for a test drive.
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.
Performing Musician Magazine praised the pedal for its retro appearance, strong build quality, and more importantly for its successful replication of this classic Fender Reverb.
As the reviewer commented, "The FRV-1 is a very authentic-sounding emulation of a Fender spring reverb, in a format that fits neatly into any pedalboard."
"It's definitely worth looking at if you don't already have a good spring reverb or emulation and you hanker after this decidedly vintage effect."
