OVERVIEW

The legendary tone of the 1965 Fender Deluxe Reverb in a stompbox.

The FDR-1 effects pedal is based on the Fender 1965-era Deluxe Reverb ” a coveted tube amp known for its natural touch response and distinctive, snappy, overdriven sound. In conjunction with Fender, BOSS designed this stompbox to re-create that legendary tone. Features include the same controls found on the original Deluxe Reverb: Level, Gain, Treble, Bass, Vibrato, and Reverb. The FDR-1 pedal also functions perfectly as a pre-gain pedal placed before an already overdriven amp to add the tone character of the Deluxe Reverb.

FEATURES
  • Re-creates the legendary tone of the 1965 Fender Deluxe Reverb guitar amp
  • Level, Gain, Treble, Bass, Vibrato, and Reverb controls
  • Road-tough BOSS metal construction

I have had this pedal for three years, and it recently died on me. I sent it in to Roland, and they sent me back a brand new one, no questions ask. It says right on the box they have a 5 year warranty, and they stand behind it!As far as the pedal, it is my favorite. I play my fender strat through this into a peavey windsor all tube half stack, and the sound is GORGEOUS. As with anything, don't go overboard on the reverb. Just a little reverb and you can get gorgeous clean, crank up the gain and you get a sweet little overdrive.I never have enough $$ to buy a bunch a pedals, but this single one makes my tone just what I want it to be.

This pedal had the potential to be the perfect compliment to a solid state amp, or any amp without built in reverb and tube gain. I bought it to use on my Fender Pro Junior. But due to serious defects, the pedal falls short.

The sounds produced are actually very good, very easy to control, and simple to dial in your perfect tone. BUT... There are annoying sound artifacts at even the mildest settings. It sounds like a small dog yapping in the distance as each note tails off.

Unfortunately, what should have been an amazing super-pedal, ended up being completely unusable. I returned mine for a refund, and went with two separate pedals instead. One for Echo and another for Distortion.

If only the FDR-1 '65 delivered...

Comments about Boss FDR-1 Fender Deluxe Reverb Pedal:

The gain/boost is okay/good. The bass and treble knobs work like they are suppose to. the vibrato is weak. The reverb is so bad. What were they thinking? It clanks! Please take this item off the market.

      Excellent device for the money. Sound quality is great and it makes my Kustom solid state amp sound like a $1000 amp. The variety of sounds is very nice. Extremely happy with this purchase.

      Fun Pedal

      Comments about Boss FDR-1 Fender Deluxe Reverb Pedal:

      I recently got this pedal and have been playing pretty much non-stop. I debated between this pedal and the 59 Bassman. I decided to get this because of the reverb as well as the vibrato. It has excellent range. I can get some really good raw OD tones from it as well as smooth clean sounds. The reverb sounds great and has doesnt have that fake digital sound like some of the pedals out there. You can get some Neil Young-ish tones as well as some early on hard rock all the way to indie tones. The Vibrato is also pretty fun to get goofy with or to add a touch of flavor to your sound. This pedal is a happy addition to my Boss pedal family and may have replaced my DS-1. And as with all Boss pedals its built really well. I still plan on purchasing the 59 Bassman pedal as well as the 63 Fender Reverb pedal just to complete the legend series.

      Comments about Boss FDR-1 Fender Deluxe Reverb Pedal:

      This is a great little pedal that enhances your sound. I play a Tele (B-Bender) and I own an actual 65 Deluxe and I think the tremolo is better with the pedal thru this amp. I also use it thru a G-DEC 30, it (pedal) sounds great thru this amp also. Whatever you play, get one of these and you will be pleasantly suprised what it can do.

      Good pedal with some limits

      By WordmanSeattle

      Comments about Boss FDR-1 Fender Deluxe Reverb Pedal:

      This is a great sounding pedal. I demoed it and was blown away. It has excellent biting clean tones, and a soft thick overdrive sound. However, there are a few things you should know about this pedal that you might not get from reading the product information.1. This pedal requires an amp. It doesn't have any sort of DI or speaker simulation. Doing so would make this a perfect recording interface / virtual amp2. The reverb is quirky. Instead of using a digital delay algorithm that kinda sounds like spring reverb, they have *modeled* a spring reverb. You can really hear the spring, along with lots of pops, blarps, and quivers. In my opiniont they did their job a little too well. Maybe the original DR spring tank was this noisy, but a modern spring reverb is not. Turned up medium or high and without other instruments, the reverb chatter is obvious and annoying. Probably in a band or mix setting it would fade right out. I recommend demoing this pedal before buying to make sure the reverb is to your liking.3. As mentioned elsewhere, the vibrato is not footswitchable. vibrato depth is on a knob and you have to hand-adjust it. I have no idea if that matches the control on the original DR, but it's true here.4. This is an amp sim, not a stomp box. I haven't tried it in every possible combination, but I don't think it plays very well with other pedals. It seems to combine nicely with the gain structure of my amp, but combining it with other distortion or overdrive pedals or other amp sim pedals doesn't seem to give a good result. I would expect this pedal to play nicely with compression or wah before the pedal and chorus or delay after, but not reverb, OD, distortion, or amp sim.Think of this pedal as an amp face lift. Set your amp to a clean or slight breakup tone you like, and set the DR pedal to a different tone it does well -- and there are a lot of them to choose from. Hit the pedal and suddenly you have a completely different amp.I see this pedal as appealing most to retro - indie - lofi - SRV - blues cat types, not metal heads or effects gurus who use multi-FX or a half dozen stompboxes. This is about pure gutsy tone.

      Comments about Boss FDR-1 Fender Deluxe Reverb Pedal:

      The best reverb pedal I have ever used I will keep it even when it eventually breaks.
      The FDR-1 is amazing. I am an experienced guitarist and normally I don't use Boss but this pedal is awesome.
      It has lasted me for about 10 days so far and I bet it will last much longer.
      This pedal has such great value.

      Unbelievable

      By swithchcraftjack

      from Kokomo, IN

      Comments about Boss FDR-1 Fender Deluxe Reverb Pedal:

      I'm a player in a classic rock cover band and between the four of us; we have virtually every base covered with regards to amp and guitar ownership. You name it and we have it. I was tickled by the prospect of this pedal and promptly got one, fully expecting to be disappointed to one degree or another, (the yeah, right factor). When it arrived, I pulled my "power engine 60" out of the garage and hooked the pedal up to it, without an amp head of any kind, and ...whoa, instant Fender tone. I took it to practice and A/B'd it with a real Twin Reverb, Pro Reverb, Bassman Reissue, AC30 and a Deluxe reissue...this thing sounded as good or better than all of the above. The only complaint I have is that setting the vibrato speed is a little awkward, and would be very hard to do while onstage. All in all, with the "power engine 60" set flat, you can have the equivalent of a 60w Deluxe that simply kills...there is even that note sag you get with a real tube amp and the guitar's volume knob becomes an instrument in itself. From clean to very satisfying lead OD without touching the pedal, that's what a great amp does and this little guy is a great "amp". I've already ordered the Bassman version, and can hardly wait to try it out.

      Good vintage setup

      Comments about Boss FDR-1 Fender Deluxe Reverb Pedal:

      I recently purchased this pedal to go along with the Fender Champion 600 amp. That turned out to be a great match. Combine the natural tube tone of the champ with the believable modeling of the 1965 deluxe reverb, fantastic. The main reason I bought the pedal was to add some reverb and vibrato to my sound. This pedal did just that plus add a little lower end sound. All in all this pedal is a great buy especially when combined with a champion 600 or a Pro Jr. I'll probably be purchasing the 59 Bassman as well!
