    Comments about Boss FRV-1 '63 Fender Reverb Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I've always wanted a true spring reverb sound on my pedal board that I can easily switch on and off, and this Boss pedal delivers! I (stupidly) sold a Fender Deluxe Reverb amp awhile ago, which was the best "clean" amp I've ever heard. But playing my '63 Stratocaster through a Soldano amp, I've found my "holy grail" guitar sound since the Soldano has a gorgeous clean channel and that Marshall-like overdrive channel, but no reverb. I tried a bunch of reverbs, even a Lexicon rack, but like this Boss. My only gripe is if you set it for a clean sound, when you try and get a cranked "Neil Young" sound with it, you may have to back off the dwell a bit. But that's no big deal. Much more cost-efficient than spending $2000 on an old Fender Reverb tank... Excellent pedal!

    You can use this in any way you need. Bedroom Practice, Band Practice, Live or Studio. I even use it with my Ampeg SCR-DI for headphone practice! Really good pedal with really good tone.

    Good

    By Phillip Blanchard

    from Charlottesville, VA

    Comments about Boss FRV-1 '63 Fender Reverb Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I bought this pedal to see how the reverb would sound on my 57 Champ Reissue. It does a good job with reverb, but i found that, regardless of the settings, replaced the harmonics, sparkle and chime with an undesirable, sterile-like quality (to my liking). My 2 cents - it's a great reverb pedal for many amps out there - particularly maybe ones with larger speakers. Issue previously described may be attributed to the clarity of the 57 Champ - it's a sensitive amp and I'm beginning to discover that it doesn't need pedals - more personal preference. I'd recommend getting this pedal and discovering if it works for what you like. Ultimately, I think it's a great pedal.

    Buy this pedal

    By Kevin Hinckley

    Comments about Boss FRV-1 '63 Fender Reverb Guitar Effects Pedal:

    If you want a Surf tone and can't afford an outboard tank, then you want this pedal. Unlike other reverb pedals (ex: Cathedral) compression and overdrive sound good when combined with the FRV-1. Sounds cool when I turn my chorus pedal up to get a tremelo effect, they work nicely together. Excellent pedal overall.

    BOSS FRV-1

    By Caro

    from Heidelberg, Germany

    Comments about Boss FRV-1 '63 Fender Reverb Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I have tried different reverb pedals, in my opinion, this is by far (!) the BEST and most NATURAL sounding reverb pedal on the market! Great vintage feeling!! Very easy to use, it took me less than a minute to dial in the sound I like. I have never tried the original Fender '63 Reverb, however, this pedal sounds very warm and beautiful!!! I play a Road Worn 50s Strat through a Pro Junior, love the little amp, this pedal makes it shine even more.
