Boss FDR-1 Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb Amp Pedal Reviews3.7/5.0 based on 3 customer reviews
I about fell out of my chair when I heard the "springs rattle" in the FDR-1 reverb the same as you would from the real amp. Boss has outdone themselves. I have never heard a more accurate model in my life! I immediately bought one for my rig!!
If you're mid-project, on a budget, and HAVE to have that '65 Fender Reverb sound, I highly recommend the Boss FDR-1 pedal. Plug in a Tele or a Strat and you're at least 90% of the way there!

Boss FDR-1 Fender 65 Deluxe Reverb Amp PedalThis will make any amp sound good. Makes a solid state amp sound like a tube. Even ran it through my miniature Fender Twin (cheapo $50 play amp) and got a great recordable tone. You can also run this through the effects return on an amp bypassing the preamp. BUY THIS. Been playing 40 years and I am a critical judge of equipment.

Charming the livingroom since 1963.
AmazingFirst off, I have to say that I am not a fan of pedals, but this one does an amazing job of emulating that bright Fender sound. The vibrato is adjustable and the gain & volume can be adjusted to seamlessly jump from the pedal being on or off. The weak point is the reverb; it makes the "spring rattle" too often and loud and is best at a one-half or lower intensity. Even so, the reverb is much better than I anticipated and can be used in combination your amp's reverb. I haven't used the gain enough to comment. I use a power adapter, but the manual admits that it may be hard on batteries.
I have used the pedal with small tube and solid state amps and numerous guitars and it sounds great with all of them.
