WNAMM07: Boss Stomboxes Replicate Classic Fender Amps


In conjunction with Fender, Boss have intoduced two new stompboxes to the compact pedal range. Both pedals aim to emulate classic Fender amps. Here’s what Boss have to say about them in their own words:
Fender Bassman Pedal FBM-1
Fender amps of the ’50s and ’60s are beloved and coveted by guitarists around the world. Thanks to BOSS’ technology and tone know-how, the new FBM-1 brings the natural, fat, rich, bright tone of the Fender Bassman to a BOSS pedal. In conjunction with Fender, the new BOSS FBM-1 recreates the legendary tone of the 1959 Fender Bassman. Features include the same controls on the original Bassman: Presence, Treble, Mid, and Bass EQ controls. The FBM-1 also functions perfectly as a “pre-gain pedal� placed before an already overdriven amp to add the tone character of the Bassman.
  • Recreates the legendary tone of the 1959 Fender Bassman amp
  • Additional BRIGHT IN provides a brighter sound, similar to the original Bassman
  • Presence, Treble, Mid and Bass EQ controls
  • Road-tough BOSS metal construction
  • Perfect pre-gain pedal for adding or retaining Fender tone color
Fender Deluxe Reverb Amp Pedal FDR-1
The second in the new Legend Series is the FDR-1, based on the Fender 1965-era Deluxe Reverb — a coveted tube amp known for its natural touch-responsive and distinctive snappy overdriven sound. In conjunction with Fender, BOSS designed this stompbox to recreate the legendary tone of the 1965 Fender Deluxe Reverb amp. Features include the same controls on the original Deluxe Reverb: Level, Gain, Treble, Bass, Vibrato and Reverb. The FDR-1 also functions perfectly as a “pre-gain pedal� placed before an already overdriven amp to add the tone character of the Deluxe Reverb.
  • Recreates the legendary tone of the 1965 Fender Deluxe Reverb guitar amp
  • Level, Gain, Treble, Bass, Vibrato and Reverb controls
  • Road-tough BOSS metal construction
  • Perfect pre-gain pedal for adding or retaining Fender tone color

    Can't wait for the Marshall JCM and Mesa Recto stand-alone pedals! Here's hoping there are further amp model pedals coming. The suggestion of using either Fender pedal in front of a dirty amp hints of some cool possibilities.

    I wonder how this thing works going straight into the console (i.e. not using any amp)? Or, does it work best with a guitar amp?

    Just got an FBM.

    They dont have any speaker emulation. Its purely an amp sim. So does not sound very nice direct into a desk :)
