New Fender Reverb Pedal (FRV-1) by BOSS

Boss introduced a new Fender Reverb Pedal based on the 1963 Fender Reverb to the Boss Legend series of pedals.  To quote the press release:

The FRV-1 recreates the classic spring-reverb sound of the 1963 Fender Reverb via patented COSM® technology. Three classic controls for Dwell, Tone, and Mix allow players to refine their tone, adding buttery warmth or sparkling twang.

Check out the BOSS site for more technical specs and a video showing off the pedal. Available in July.  [BOSS US product link]
