Los Angeles, CA: January 18, 2007 - Fender's amps of the '50s and '60s are beloved and coveted by guitarists around the world. BOSS and Fender have teamed up to give guitarists unique Fender tone combined with BOSS technology, sound quality, and reliability. Thanks to BOSS’ technology and tone know-how, the FDR1 brings the snappy overdrive tone of the 65 Deluxe Reverb to a BOSS pedal format.
The FDR1 has the same controls as on the original Deluxe Reverb; Treble, Bass, Vibrato, and Reverb. Both pedals have an added Gain control as well.
This pedal also functions perfectly as a pre-gain pedal
placed before an already overdriven vintage or modern amp to add the famous tone character of the Deluxe Reverb.
Fender's Ritchie Fliegler states:
We're constantly being asked… Of the many distortion devices out there, which one do we recommend to bring out the overdrive in these classic amps and keep that Fender tone intact. Frankly, they've all left us a bit cold in some way or another. After working with BOSS on this project, the answers are the FBM1 and FDR1.
These new pedals fall under the class of a new series of BOSS pedals called the Legend Series, products based on legendary products of the past.
By combining Fender tone with BOSS technology and sound quality, FDR1 65 Deluxe Reverb provides a road-ready stompbox that gets to the true core of guitar tone.
