Product Description

Fender had a hand in the design and creation of the FDR-1, a Boss pedal that brings the sound and feel of a classic Fender amp to the masses in a small pedal. The '65 Deluxe Reverb is an amp that is still revered by guitarists as a true tone machine, and now that rocking tone is packed into a stompbox. Like the FBM-1, the FDR-1 is sure to excite axe slingers of all styles and genres. There's now no reason to scour classic guitar shops in hopes of finding a classic '65 Deluxe Reverb in good working order. Just get a Boss FDR-1, and you've got one of the most heralded tones in history at your disposal.

Customer Reviews

It's startlingly loud and very annoying.
Eric Bliss
My advice is get Digitech R155 for less money; far better Fender like sounds including tube simulation.
T. Sezen
Reverb is decent, and I really have no use for vibrato.

Let's face it, you're not going to get 100% Deluxe Reverb sound out of a pedal. For that, you'll have to pony up big bucks and actually buy a Deluxe Reverb, preferably an excellent-condition vintage one with NOS tubes. But for just a few thousand bucks less than that option, you can put a lot of "pretty close" sounds into a gig bag. I've used this pedal through DI into a local club's sound system and through my own Roland Cube, with a Strat, a sound-hole pick-upped Seagull acoustic, and a 'uke with at K&K Twin-Spot, and it does great things for each instrument. As an alternative to always carrying a vintage tube amp and wide array of pedals, I highly recommend this little gadget, which works well, produces a nice fat sound with reverb and trem, and leaves change in your pocket.

I read all the glowing reviews on this unit, and unfortunately bought one based on those. This unit will kill your tone, and best place I can see for this unit is trash can. I was not expecting a Fender Deluxe tube amp but some improvement on my guitar amp combo (Fender American Strat and Fender 65R transistor amp). First of all you cannot get a clean tone, because if you turn the gain all the way off, no sound. If you turn the gain little you get distortion no clean sound. OK. So it does not simulate a clean Fender Deluxe amp tone at all, so how about tube distortion. What you get not tube distortion like sound, but horrible artificial electronic noise (I rather call it non-musical noise). OK, so you do not get tube distortion either, how about reverb? It has that annoying ping pong sound even at lowest levels of reverb, so reverb is totally useless also. I have Fender spring reverb on my amp, and this reverb does not even sound remotely close. As a physics person I know all about spring reverb, as I had one in my lab, believe me I know how it works. How about vibrato (tremolo)? It has the worst vibrato (tremolo), most artificial one I have ever heard. Totally useless. I have Digitech R155, and its Fender Amp simulation, tremolo, and Fender reverb simulation is light years better than this unit, and it costs less, and it has a drum machine, does so much more than this unit. So forget Fender clean tone, Fender tube distortion, Fender reverb, and Fender vibrato (tremolo); what is left? This unit is not only totally useless, but it will kill any tone you have without it. My biggest shock, is Fender let their name associated with this unit, it is an insult to Fender amp legacy. Please Fender, disallow your name to be abused in this way, no matter how much Boss is paying you.Read more ›

I found it sort of funny of the guy giving this zero stars, like he expected the actual amp with it's original tubes in tact. I think he wants to be thought of as some kind of tone aficionado. Anyway, I bought this used for $50, and it's a lot of fun. I plugged it into a Roland 405, and it sounds pretty great. I wouldn't pay the new $149 price, but if you can get it used I say go for it.

Though I rarely find stompers living up to expectations, this is one terrific effects pedal. I have not used it through my modified Blues Jr. (no need) but I do use it in front of a Crate Taxi. The combination is killer for mid volume practice. Highly recommend adding this box to the mix. Couple to a Dan Echo and you will have deep tape reverb slap as well.

Awesome accessory for any musician. I use it for pedal steel & lap steel. Awesome over drive for screaming tone using a lap steel for that rock style or blues slyde. Gives that classic 65 twin tone for that cry'n vintage pedal steel guitar sound.

The reverb and tremolo on this pedal are fantastic. This pedal also functions great as a boost/pre-gain pedal. I will never take this off my board. By far my favorite Boss pedal.

I have owned this box about two years. I bought it to go with my 70's Fender Musicmaster Bass Amp that I play my jazz archtop guitars out of in my bedroom. A lot of players are fussier than I am - to me it's comical. I like this reverb box. It adds to the pure tube tune of my 12 watt amp and I think it is sweet and warm. I don't use other effects, and yes, it does color the sound, but I would replace it if it were lost. This device seems built to last a long time and I would get the AC adapter. My main amp is a Fender Deluxe Reverb, and no,of course this does not perfectly imitate it, but it works just fine for my purposes.

i love this pedal i bought it as a quick fix my reverb tank in my amp went out and while waiting for a new one i needed something to do the job and i got allot more with this than i thought the drive portion is not so pretty to my ears but the reverb and the vibrato are amazing and the over all sound is very nice it emulates the high frequency coming out of tubes well and very balanced in that it doesn't hurt the ears
