Boss RV-5 digital reverb

Some of my amps don’t have inbuilt reverb to soften the edge of overdrive settings.  Grr. So I had to look around for a compact reverb pedal for my pedalboard.  I found there wasn’t much choice, but fortunately this one is small and sounds good.


It has a lot of settings I don’t use including a few ‘novelty reverbs’.  I just want a small hall to give some air around the sound. Boss pedals have been an industry standard for years – I wish I’d kept my earlier ones (from memory : compressor, chorus, digital delay, spectrum and metal overdrive).  They’re built like tanks and the battery is easy to replace – other stomp box manufacturers take note!
