Waza Craft: The Art of Superior Tone
Since the beginning, the engineers at BOSS have been committed to achieving the finest guitar tones using any technology necessary, from old-school analog circuits to high-tech DSP. Continuing this enthusiastic spirit, we are pleased to introduce the new Waza Craft series. In Japan, Waza is the term for art and technique, and these special edition pedals proudly carry the Waza symbol to represent the pinnacle of BOSS design and craftsmanship. With final sound approval carried out by BOSS in Japan, the Waza Craft series brings you exceptional tone and touch response through carefully-selected analog components, refined circuitry, and meticulous attention to detail.

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 analog 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 todays music styles. Using 100-percent analog circuitry, the DM-2Ws 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 analog tone with over twice the available delay time.

Picked one of these up on sale at L&M. Great unit, similar to the vintage one but voiced slightly differently. If you looking for an exact replica, this isn't it. The caveat is that it's easily better. In the custom setting your controls are expanded, and it doesn't run away into self-oscillation as easily. It feels a bit more modern and easily controlled in this setting. That being said it still has a great tone, very remarkable for the price range.

I bought my first Boss DM2 new at the old Vancouver Long and McQuade store at 4th ave and Pine st, in late 1982, after returning a noisy Ibanez UE-400 system to buy a Boss BCB-6 case and some pedals.This is one great reissue, that is better than the original. In standard mode you get the original pedal [which I think has been slightly improved upon-much stronger even warmer signal, more responsive]. The Custom mode is worth the price of the pedal on it's own, extending things from 300ms max to 800ms. Lush delays [think Led Zeppelin live Song Remains The Same album], that linger and then slowly decay into the outer edges of the universe. Beautiful! The pedal works well in an effects loop, but really shines in front of a bunch of overdrive and distortion stompers, last in line on your board. Why buy an old over priced vintage one, with it's fading failing tone when you can have a better new one! Sell the vintage DM2 for $350, pocket $150 and buy the Waza. It's just flat out the best DM-2 ever made! Wowza! Wowza! Wowza!
