BOSS’ have worked together with one of the most popular guitar brands in the world – Fender, to produce this wonderful piece of work that is the FRV-1 63 Fender Reverb Pedal.
The expertise of one of the finest pedal manufacturers, combined with the knowledge and dedication to improvement of one of the best guitar brands out there, gathered forces to re-create the old original release of this “stomp-box” into a modern pedal, without jeopardizing its style and integrity. There is a reason why the FRV-1 is featured both in the top reverb pedals and best overall guitar pedal charts at the same time. This pedal is a beautifully crafted and carefully conceived retro stylish masterpiece that you would expect from such big names.
This pedal features three of the best classic controls that were most popular back in 1960s. These controls go by the names of Dwell, Mix and Tone. The regular input/outputs are naturally included. The box itself, which you can easily judge by yourself, is small and compact, its exact dimensions are 6 x 3 x 9 inches, and its weight sums up to only a single pound. A true space saver, easy to move and easy to use.
The controls on this gorgeous pedal may sound unfamiliar or intimidating to some younger or inexperienced users. But they’re simple once you get the hang of them, as they are dating from way back, when there wasn’t a huge variety of reverb options available. We’ll explain them here as clearly as possible.
– the Dwell reverb signifies how intensive the spring is vibrated. Depending on the intensity, the trail resulted from being gentler, to exponentially rising in strength and duration.
– the Mixer knob is responsible for controlling how much of your sound trail, whether smooth or loud and lasting, is mixed within the original sound.
– Tone is pretty self-explanatory, as it controls the tone of your reverb signal
They are all pretty simple to master and will aid you in creating amazing sounds once you get the feel of how they work.
This remarkably stylish pedal’s sound output is amazing and its quality is what you can expect just from hearing the brand names that are responsible for bringing it to the market. Tinker with the three reverb options, and you’ll be amazed and what kind of sounds you’ll receive. It is just like the original release, and it has made very enthusiasts thrilled with their pedal.
Are you looking to try something out a bit different then what you’re used to from modern-day pedals? Take a shot at this outstanding piece from these globally known and respected manufacturers and you might just be pleasantly surprised at what you get. This pedal is definitely worth its price and it has reinstated its former glory.
