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.

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 customized pedal tone will love. Crafted with an ear for highly refined sound, the SD-1W hot rods the famous BOSS overdrive with all-discrete analog circuitry. Standard mode captures the classic SD-1 sound while Custom mode offers new tonal range and gain.

Yes, the Waza Craft version does sound smoother and less "ragged" than the stock SD-1 and the Custom mode will come in handy when using different amps and guitars, but I don't see it as an improvement or a replacement. Instead, it's a cool take on a classic pedal and will give the average musician some options when looking for an overdrive for their setup.

All I can say is....oh my god.... Very responsive pedal, gobs of tone, fatter sound. You don't have to set the level of overdrive too high to get that "sweet spot". I own other overdrive pedals, but this is now my new "go to " pedal. Cheers!,
