Boss has announced its Waza Craft series, a new line of special edition compact pedals that offers players the ultimate BOSS tone experience. The debut of the Waza Craft series includes the SD-1W Super Overdrive, BD-2W Blues Driver, and DM-2W Delay.
Since the late Seventies, thousands of guitarists have relied on a dependable pair of orange and yellow Boss stomp boxes known respectively as the DS-1 Distortion and OD-1 Overdrive.
These pedals have their own distinct sonic character, and with their low-noise performance, dynamic response and tonal versatility, they are significantly expanded versions of two of the most beloved compact pedals of all time.
Equipped with a huge selection of top-quality COSM amps and effects, 1/4-inch and XLR inputs and much more, the compact GT-001 brings flagship BOSS guitar tones and advanced recording features to any home studio or mobile setup.
The Guitar World crew visited the Roland/Boss booth — it's actually a large room with several sections and a stage — during the 2014 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, California. We were introduced to several new items from the company, including the ME-80 Guitar Multiple Effects processor. Be sure to check out our video below!
