Boss RV-5 Digital Reverb|Boss RV-5 Digital Reverb is now part of! All the Boss pedals you love are still here, along with expert reviews of electric guitars, amps, and more.

The RV-5 is a direct replacement of the RV-3 so it might seem disappointing that it only has 6 modes compared to the RV-3’s 11. The RV-3 was however a Reverb/Delay that only had 4 pure reverb modes. With the RV-5, the delay function has been dropped and its 6 modes are all different kinds of reverb.
