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:

    I just got the pedal and thus far I am impressed. I have it plugged into a Kustom solid state amp and it does add a tube amp tone/sound when turned on. The controls are very responsive and is easy to dial in for whatever additional tones you are trying to achieve. It can certainly add versatility to your existing amp and instrument.

        Comments about Boss FDR-1 Fender Deluxe Reverb Pedal:

        I play lead guitar in our band at church. We resently went to a silent stage sound system. Until we build an amp room I can't use my Twin Reverb. Plugging my pedal board directly into the system sounded really sterile so I decided that I needed an amp model which is why I purchased this pedal. I have to say that I'm really satisfied with the FDR-1, it sounds like a Fender Deluxe to my ear and it gets a nice crunch, like a cranked up amp. The reverb is just OK and I don't use the vibrato at all. Kind of funky, I use an Electro-Harmonix Pulsar which I love instead. Any way, I love the sound of this pedal,and until we build the amp room, I'm good to go.

            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.

            Comments about Boss FDR-1 Fender Deluxe Reverb Pedal:

            boss and fender have come up with a great one with this pedal, there could be a little more reverb control, but for me, it does just what i want it to. outstanding tone, great reverb for my sound, and realy like that it has tremelo also. great overdrive sound and tone control
            has everything i wanted in a single pedal, nice gain sound, not thin on the bottom like some other drive pedals, reverb and trem
            top notch boss/roland quality

            from Chambersburg, Pa

            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.

            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.

            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.
