Boss RV-5 Digital Reverb Pedal

The latest addition to my guitar arsenal is the Boss RV-5 Digital Reverb Pedal.  This is probably the sweetest reverb pedal I have heard in a long time.  My current head is the original block letter Peavey 5150.  This amp is notorious for a less than stellar clean channel.  It takes a lot of tweaking to get the clean channel to sound useable … which I have done … then adding the Boss RV-5 is just icing on the cake!  The reverb setting that come from the RV-5 are extremely spacious sounding.  I cannot say enough!  This is high quality reverb that should impress even the most “finicky” audiophile guitarists.
