This pedal digitally reproduces the classic tones of the original 63 Fender Reverb unit. The unit although sounded amazing is powered by tubes and can be somewhat cumbersome and high maintenance. Fender went to Boss and said 'Hey bro, let's make this in pedal form' well OK don't quote me on that, but that is what happened and Boss built Fender's 63 Reverb pedal.

My usual expensive 'Yeah I'd like to try this out' pedal shopping extravaganzas. Regularly $129 I was able to score this on sale for $100.

It's a simple no nonsense pedal. It can really add that pocket full of sunshine you hear on the old Beach Boys records.

The three simple knobs on this pedal are Mixer, Tone and Dwell. Mixer decides how much reverb you are sending out, Tone is a standard treble roll off tone knob like your standard guitar's tone know and Dwell acts as a sustain knob.

With the old reverb units every time you tried to move them you'd hear an ear piercing exploding sound from the springs rattling. Well you know what it really is not a problem with me that this pedal doesn't do that, nor can I think of any other negatives.

Your regular awesome Boss quality construction you have grown to learn, love and rely on.

The Boss Fender 63 Deluxe Reverb pedal sure doesn't top the old tube Reverb units, but it makes life a whole lot easier and sounds great too.
