Review: Boss Waza Craft DC-2W Dimension C and MT-2W Metal Zone Pedals

Now that Boss has released its seventh and eighth Waza Craft pedals, a definite pattern is starting to become evident. Every time Waza Craft reissues a faithful recreation of a long-discontinued and highly sought-after classic Boss compact pedal (like the CE-2, DM-2 and VB-2), they’ll also release a revamped, customized version of current popular product that is still in production (like the BD-2, SD-1 and TU-3), all with the extra pro features and expanded versatility that Waza Craft pedals are known for. For the latest batch of Waza Craft pedals, Boss is offering the DC-2w Dimension C for the classic category and the MT-2w Metal Zone for the popular best-seller division.

The extremes that these two pedals represent couldn’t be much wider. The original DC-2 Dimension C was only in production for four years and is known as one of the rarest pedals Boss ever produced, while the MT-2 Metal Zone has remained in constant production since 1991 and ranks as one of the top-ten best-selling Boss pedals of all-time. The DC-2 is also known for its crystal-clear chorus effects that sound particularly awesome with clean guitar tones, while the MT-2 delivers some of the heaviest distortion tones a Boss product has ever produced.
