The original Fender ’65 Delux Reverb is a 22W all valve amplifier with no less than 9 valves. It has recently been reissued by Fender so the original amp is still availible today but its sound can now also be produced with the Boss FDR-1. Working with Fender, Boss has modelled the original amp and launched the FDR-1 together with the FBM-1 as the first pedals in the new ‘legend series’ of stompboxes.

The original amp has a normal and a vibrato input while the FDR-1 has only one input. The amp’s controls are Volume, Bass, Treble, Reverb, Vibrato Speed and Vibrato Intensity. The FDR-1 has the same controls except it has an additional gain control. The Vibrato speed does not have a separate knob on the FDR-1 but is instead controlled using tap tempo.
