(PRESS RELEASE): The engineers at BOSS have always focused on creating the finest guitar tones using the most suitable technology available - from old-school analogue circuits to high-tech DSP. Even today, BOSS products use both DSP and analogue components, because our philosophy is simply to use the best method to get the job done.
Continuing in this spirit, BOSS is proud to announce the special-edition Waza Craft series: three classic Boss pedals built around discrete analogue circuitry. In Japan, “Waza” is the term for art and technique, and these pedals represent the pinnacle of BOSS design and craftsmanship, delivering exceptional tone and touch response through carefully-selected discrete analogue components, refined circuitry, and meticulous attention to detail.
BD-2W Blues Driver
Passionately designed by the master engineers at BOSS in Japan, the Waza Craft BD-2W delivers a premium stomp experience that fans of customised pedal tone will love.
Crafted with an ear for highly refined sound, the BD-2W takes the classic Blues Driver grit to a new level with all-discrete analogue circuitry. Standard mode captures the classic BD-2 tone while Custom mode delivers new body and sustain.
BOSS DM-2 Delay
Ever since being discontinued way back in 1984, the BOSS DM-2 Delay pedal has remained highly sought after by players everywhere for its warm, “bucket brigade” analogue delay tone.
Now, the DM is back! With the Waza Craft DM-2W, the coveted stomp has been reborn with switchable sound modes and greater versatility for today’s music styles. Using 100-percent analogue circuitry, the DM-2W’s Standard mode nails the lush sound and 20-300 ms delay range of the original DM-2. Flipping into Custom mode instantly changes the sound character to a cleaner analogue tone with over twice the available delay time.
SD-1W Super Overdrive
Passionately designed by the master engineers at BOSS in Japan, the Waza Craft SD-1W Super Overdrive delivers a premium stomp experience that fans of customised pedal tone will love.
Crafted with an ear for highly refined sound, the SD-1W hot rods the famous BOSS overdrive with all-discrete analogue circuitry. Standard mode captures the classic SD-1 sound while Custom mode offers new tonal range and gain.
