NEWS: Boss Fender Reverb pedal now shipping

Middle of the week, which means I’m too busy with other stuff to do any serious hardcore blogging, so here’s a press release for ya!

1963 Fender Spring Reverb Returns as a Modern Stompbox

Los Angeles, CA, August 11, 2009 — BOSS® and Fender® USA have collaborated to create the FRV-1, a stunning recreation of the 1963 Fender Reverb®. A staple sound of rockabilly, country, blues, surf rock and even grunge rock, this tube-driven reverb sound is now available in an affordable, rugged compact pedal.

The FRV-1 recreates the classic spring-reverb sound of the 1963 Fender Reverb via patented COSM® technology. Three classic controls for Dwell, Tone, and Mix allow players to refine their tone, adding buttery warmth or sparkling twang.

The FRV-1 is now available with an MSRP of $206.50.
