Designed in the premium Waza Craft analog tradition, the DC-2W offers not just a perfect sonic recreation of the original DC-2 Dimension C pedal, but also the legendary SDD-320 Dimension D studio rack effect it was based on. The DC-2W features the same intuitive four-button preset interface as the original '80s-era effects, now evolved with electronic switching that unlocks a multitude of sonic variations not available on the vintage units.

Highly sought-after by musicians and audio engineers, the Dimension's unique spatial processing magically enhances the width and depth of any sound, from electric and acoustic guitars to keyboards, vocals, and other sources. Built from the original circuit designs and updated with modern refinements, the DC-2W is the only pedal available that delivers the classic Dimension experience with complete sonic authenticity.

So whoever left the review saying that this is a versatile pedal ranging from subtle chorus to almost phaser like modulation is totally in another Dimension, 7 maybe? Anyway, kidding aside, heres the low down. This pedal is definitely versatile in that it can be really quite subtle and can be a pretty noticeable effect, but I would not call it swirly, heavy modulated sound. If anything it sounds phasey, which makes the width sound bigger , but it doesnt modulate like alot of phasors or flangers, its definitely more subtle. This pedal is a faithful recreation of the original boss Dimension C pedal, but it also adds the SDD-320 mode that emulates the Original Roland Dimension D rack, and also allows you to select between any combination of settings 1-4. Part of what makes this thing and the Dimension D rack unique is its signal path. The effect is achieved by using dual modulation sections running out‑of‑phase with each other, each having its own internally set depth and rate parameters, along with cross‑feedback networks that connect the sections. Adding feedback in this way adds further complexity to the effect, giving the impression that there are more than two modulation processes at work — so you don’t hear the familiar churning sound inherent in typical chorus effects. And furthermore the Dual out of phase modulation sections are then mixed back in with the 100% dry signal, so that your original tone and punch arent compromised. Okay what else. Oh , it can either be used in mono, or sterio if you wanted to use a sterio cab setup or something. It sounds great in mono in my opinion, but the real width and depth this thing creates is really only appreciated in sterio. It sounds good infront of an amp or in an FX loop. With Bass guitar its cool, but cuts some of the low end I find. This is an all analog pedal though I am pretty sure that Boss is using alot of surface mount components as opposed to through hole. For this price, I would have like to see a through hole pedal, but thats a nitpick , sort of. I have no beef with the sound of surface mount, but what bugs me is if anything breaks or components need replacing its not easy like it is to solder through hole, and would be harder to find components. Other than that, great pedal, and its definitely unique. How would I describe it? Like a subtle, phasey, but thick and lush sounding chorus, with a very gentle modulation/movement.

When I went shopping to complete my pedalboard, I had in mind this pedal, and a tuner pedal. I plugged into this pedal for the first time, and was amazed, so I proceeded to purchase it. A guitarist who I play with at church came over to practice songs, and I let him play through it. He previously had a boss CH-1, and he now wants to trade it in for this pedal! This is the best of the best for subtle modulation effects! It sounds like a chorus, but preserves your tone, and doesn’t have the chorus wobble that people may like. I would buy it at any price, even if it’s one cent, or it it’s more expensive than stacking a Klon Centaur and vintage TS808 into a wall of Dumble Overdrive Special full stacks. I feel it was worth the purchase. No regrets.

this pedal is awesome. It sounds like every chorusy 80s song ever. This had to be used by Alex Lifeson. It is very Rush sounding. But ya I'm really liking this one.

Surprisingly versatile. Can range from very lush thick chorusing to subtile, almost phaser-like modulation with just the click of a couple of buttons.
