Combining high-end sound and wide-ranging versatility, the RV-6 takes pedal-based reverb to the next level. Reaching beyond the capabilities of previous generations, this powerful stomp employs the latest tech and legendary BOSS know-how to make it easy to get amazing reverb tones instantly. From subtle rooms to modern shimmer effects to long, evocative reverbs, the RV-6 envelops your tone in lush ambient spaces that endlessly inspire.

Features:

• Compact and versatile reverb pedal with rich, expansive sound
• Dial in sophisticated, top-level reverb tones quickly with simple controls
• Eight sound modes provide a diverse range of ready-to-play reverb effects
• Shimmer, Dynamic, and Delay+Reverb modes deliver lush, immersive textures sought by modern players
• Input for controlling reverb level with an optional expression pedal
• Supports mono or stereo operation

Simply Great-Sounding Reverbs

Packing the latest BOSS DSP and updated algorithms, the RV-6 gives you eight highly musical reverb effects in one compact pedal. Add body and depth to your core tone with standards like Room, Hall, and Plate, dial up swirling richness with the Modulate setting, or surf it up with a vintage-style Spring reverb. Dynamic mode automatically adjusts the effect depth to your playing touch, providing deep, immersive reverb that won't turn your tone to mud. And modern players will love the new Shimmer and Reverb+Delay modes.

Dialed-In Sounds at Your Command

The RV-6 makes getting high-quality reverb sounds with your guitar quick and easyjust select a sound mode, tweak the knobs to taste, and play. But while its operation is simple, the RV-6's sound is rich and sophisticated. Under the hood, each mode includes a huge array of detailed reverb parameters, all perfectly tuned for guitar by the BOSS engineers with direct input from many pro players and sound engineers. Even as you adjust the selected mode with the Time and Tone knobs, many parameters are simultaneously adjusted inside to create the ideal voicing for every setting.

Analog Dry Tone and Versatile I/O

While the RV-6's reverb effects are high-tech digital, you can rest assured that your straight guitar tone always remains pure analog as the effect is blended in. Convenient auto-switching jacks let you integrate with any pedal chain, with support for mono, mono-to-stereo, and stereo-to-stereo operation. And by plugging into the B input only, the RV-6 outputs a 100-percent wet sound, great for working with more complex rigs that employ parallel processing chains and mixers. There's also a jack for connecting an optional expression pedal, allowing you to control the effect level in real time as you play.

Used to have an RV2 from around 1990. It was the first Boss reverb pedal and sounded awesome until I lost it at a gig somehow years ago. Trying to find another is like finding a needle in a haystack. So I rented a reverb pedal. L&M had the RV5 and 6 on its rentals, so I picked the 6. Not a lot you can do to improve reverbs as this has a shimmer and dynamic settings that are just icing on the cake and its not something you would just leave on all the time. I don't remember my old RV2 having spring reverb so thats nice.

After getting back into pedals after having a modeling amp with built in effects, I needed to find a reverb pedal that was easy to tweak. I also needed a better reverb than what I had in my amp, a Marshall DSL40 which when turned up was still barely there. I had a Boss Reverb, a long discontinued RV2 or 3 which I had for years. The early models had reverb/ delay settings which came in handy if you had a delay pedal already but wanted even thicker delay sounds. There was room and hall settings as well but too many delay settings. Then the RV5 came out and it had eliminated delay settings entirely but introduced plate, modulation and gate settings. I almost got that but tried the newly introduced RV6. It has the best of the RV5 settings but has a spring reverb, dynamic and shimmer settings and a delay/ reverb. The dynamic is supposed to adjust the reverb depth as you pick but its hardly noticeable. The shimmer is somewhat like the Eventide Crystals pitch shift setting but really only useful for ambient sounds. Its strength that made me get it is the delay/reverb setting being brought back and the Fender like spring reverb. The usual deeper room and hall reverbs are still there and work brilliantly. A few too many bells and whistles overall but at least the new RV6 incorporates the best of everything from past pedals.

The RV-6 is a big step up from their previous model. It has the quality Boss sound with the unique features that make the pedal worth it. I was a bit disappointed with the shimmer function, as it doesn't so much reverb, but more adds the pad sound in the background, which if not used properly can be obnoxious. Otherwise, great pedal!

As you can expect from Boss' reverb, it'll be a solid sound with minimal tone leakage. I'm not totally convinced it's an upgrade from the RV-5 as the sounds are minimally different. I find the RV-6 to be slightly brighter. the Mod mode, which I use most frequently, is still stellar and can't be beat. With a few more bells and whistles included such as the Delay+verb you're getting the best Boss can do to keep within the Reverb competition, especially with Strymon continuing to gain momentum.
