A timeless classic — the Fender® Spring Reverb is the sound that launched the surf-music phenomenon, and is a staple of rockabilly, country, and blues. Later, it became commonplace in grunge and other modern genres. Now the same legendary sound can be had in an affordable, rugged compact pedal.

Fender® Corporation licensed the use of “Fender® Bassman®” to the BOSS FBM-1, “Fender® Deluxe Reverb®” to the BOSS FDR-1, and “Fender® Reverb” to the BOSS FRV-1. No other pedals carry this official license.
