Yesterday @dvpstar asked me what I thought of the Boss FRV-1 ’63 Fender Reverb pedal, but I personally don’t use reverb so I was unsure, so I thought I’d better look it up. Looks like Boss has a series of *Fender* series pedals and the FRV-1 ’63 Fender Reverb pedal is Boss’ way of capturing the famous Fender spring reverb unit in a compact stomp box.
Here is the official pedal description:
BOSS and Fender USA have collaborated to create the BOSS FRV-1 pedal, a stunning recreation of the legendary ’63 Fender Reverb via COSM technology. The FRV-1 puts that timeless tube-driven reverb sound under your foot in a tough, reliable compact reverb pedal.
The Fender Spring Reverb is the sound that launched the surf-music phenomenon, and is a staple of rockabilly, country, and blues. Later, it became commonplace in grunge and other modern genres. Now the same legendary sound can be had in an affordable, rugged compact guitar effect pedal.
Boss FRV-1 ’63 Fender Reverb Guitar Effects Pedal Features:
* Recreates the legendary sound of the 1963 Fender Reverb via COSM technology
* Easy operation with 3 classic controls for Dwell, Tone, and Mix for creating sounds from buttery warmth to sparkling twang
* Cool, retro appearance

Boss has a great video by Steve Trovato. I was really impressed with this guys’ diverse playing (country – surf – blues):
