Hall, Room, Spring and Plate Reverbs at Your Feet -- And More

Your Boss RV-5 digital reverb pedal takes the atmospheric allure of reverb and adds in loads of appetizing settings to personalize your sound to your specific style. This reverb pedal features effects level, tone, and time controls. The mode control includes spring, plate, hall, room, gate, and modulation settings for some serious sonic exploration. Dual 1/4" inputs and outputs allow for stereo connectivity, and a rugged and sturdy outer metal casing assures you'll get mesmerizing reverb stomp after stomp. Add this pedal to your signal chain, and see what Boss's sought-after digital reverb can bring to your game.

The Boss of Digital Reverb

There are many reverb pedals out there that'll bring in truck-loads of color and tonal allure to your sound, but the Boss RV-5 offers six of Boss's most popular reverb settings. You'll be surprised at how much exploratory sonic landscape is available right at your feet when you fire your signal through this factory of tone. Dual inputs even allow you to incorporate this pedal into your keyboard rig, if you want to explore with instruments outside the world of axes.

Hall, Room, Spring and Plate Reverb Modes -- Plus Modulate and Gate FX

The reverb settings on this pedal give you the best of what Boss has to offer. You have spring, plate, hall, room, gate, and modulation settings at your disposal. The gate setting is modeled after high-end Roland studio gear, and the spring setting offers incredibly realistic spring reverb color to mesmerize anyone within earshot. You won't be short on reverb possibilities when you see the range this single piece of gear brings to the table.

Controlling Your Reverb Settings

To control the way each setting affects your instrument's signal, your Boss RV-5 features effects level, tone, time, and mode control knobs. The effects level control dials in the amount of effect, the tone control affects how dark or how bright your output gets, and the time control determines the length of decay. Each control provides plenty of manipulation to the type of reverb you have selected on your mode control.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (53 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A Good Reverb unit that's worth owning"
Sound: I purchased this unit about 3 weeks ago and I'm pleased with it. The quality of the reverb is excellent and you have some control over the different types of reverb that this unit has to offer. I have also used this unit for vocals on my 4 track recorder which richly enhances my vocal tracks. This unit gives me the reverb that I require and then some. Like other reviewers mentioned, the unit is a little pricey, however I Feature: This unit gives you several types of reverb. The unit also gives you the ability to change wetness & tone of each type of reverb. Quality: I own a few other Boss/Roland products and the quality is great. I do light traveling (once a week) with my gear. I have never encountered any problems with my other Boss/Roland products and I would guess that this unit would be no different. Value: This unit is a little high on price, however with the respect I have for Boss/Roland and the quality of their products, I was sold! The Wow Factor: This unit is not very sexy however it did catch my eye!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Big Jazz Sounds from a LITTLE guitar!"
Sound: I like to play a tiny Martin .. so no big bossy sounds from it. But with this little pedel and the controls on it, I can make the little guitar sound like a big jazz guitar. I love this unit ... worth every penny, I've already recommended it to many people. I tried compression type units and they did nothing. Play with the knobs and you'll be amazed at the varying sounds you can get. For a jazz lover, this made my little Martin stand up with the best of them. Feature: All I needed. Had to get the power supply for it. The 9 v battery works for about 9 hours, but if you don't take the battery completely out of the unit, it runs down. Best to just get the power supply. (Although I've bought 9v rechargables for my "portable" gigs. Ease of Use: Unlike some of the other compression and distotion units, this one was giving me the sound I wanted in mere minutes. I don't like the "tone" ... so I turn it DOWN to get rid of the twanging trebels ... (you would think you would turn it "up" but down is the right direction. Other than that, I had it giving me what I wanted in 5 minutes. Quality: Made very well, professional unit ... heavy and can take a beating. Value: I looked at more expensive units ... all did MANY more things, but I didn't need any of those 100s of options. This gave me what I wanted for the right price. Manufacturer Support: I give this a "6" because I haven't dealt with the company. The Wow Factor: Demonstrated it to a group of 30 people today and they were amazed at the sound from my little guitar ... everyone wanted to know about the 'new box' I had added. Overall: This unit is a keeper. I may even purchase another one so I can velcro mount it to a second amp and not have to be moving the unit from one amp to the other. For me, no "like least" about it.
