Boss RV-2 Digital ReverbPublished on 01/28/10 at 20:38
The Boss RV-2 is a digital reverb effects pedal, and I believe it was the first reverb pedal made by Boss.  The pedal has a 1/4 inch input and two 1/4 inch outputs.  It has the standard size and make up that most Boss pedals do, with a nine volt battery compartment and power supply jack.  This isn't a rackable piece of gear as it is a stomp box.

UTILIZATION

The configuration of the Boss RV-2 is generally speaking quite easy to follow.  In terms of parameters, it has knobs for effect level, pre EQ, time, and a six point knob for choosing the mode.  The reverb modes include room, two hall modes, plate, gate, and a panning delay.  All of the modes are pretty cool, though I do like some...…

SOUND QUALITY

While the sound of the Boss RV-2 Digital Reverb doesn't match the clean sound quality of its followers (the RV-5), it does sound quite good across the board.  I've used the pedal a number of times for recording with a few different guitars and a '65 Fender Deluxe Reverb amplifier.  My favorite modes on the pedal would have to be the plate and the panning delay, but all of the modes have a similar sound quality and this is really just a point of personal taste.  While the RV-2 doesn't offer up the same type of versatility that you'd get with the RV-3 or RV-5, you can definitely get a ton of different reverb sounds from it anyway.


OVERALL OPINION

The Boss RV-2 is of course no longer being made, as it first came on the market more than twenty years ago.  However, you can definitely still find a good amount of them on eBay, so you can get one if you want one.  There is definitely a romantic aspect of having the older model of Boss' Digital Reverb, but I have to say that I like the RV-3 and RV-5 better overall.  This isn't to say that the RV-2 isn't a great pedal, I just think they perfected it after this one...

Boss RV-2 Digital ReverbPublished on 11/11/07 at 13:27
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
This is a small rverb numrique PDAL Stereo, dedicates Obviously guitarists. I think it is THE FIRST of its kind.
Level connections, it has one input and two outputs A and B, taking over for tranfo, which also comes with silent, the pedals do not work with batteries.

UTILIZATION

The rglages are "EFFECT LEVEL" to assay the level of rverb, "PRE EQ" for the color of the effect (more or less acute, in fact), "TIME" for the length of the r verb, and "MODE" which allows accder to six programs included: ROOM (rverb short and brilliant), HALL 1, HALL 2 (longer), PLATE (rverb colors diffrent ), DELAY (not great but can dpanner), GATE (rverb INTERESTED gate for effects).

SOUND QUALITY

Apart from the delay, contrlable difficult (but a rverb pedals of all APRS), all the presets are good quality sound and provide ample expected. And when you plug everything in Stereo (but you have two amps!) Is carrment bluffing.

OVERALL OPINION

In short, it's a good little machine, with me for over 10 years and still works perfectly, which dmontre the reliability of the Boss pedals.
