Since its introduction in 1995 the Boss Blues Driver BD-2 has represented a different side to Boss' gain pedals, one that's more understated and dynamic than the walls of sound that come from a DS-1 or MT-2. Its gain range and responsiveness have made it popular with players worldwide who value its crunchy grit and ability to go from full distortion to sweet cleans just using your volume knob and pick attack. Its unique circuit design has also made it incredibly popular with boutique pedal manufacturers and modifiers looking to take it to the next level. Boss has noted that popularity, and when they debuted the Waza Craft series the BD-2W was one of their flagship pedals for good reason.
This new edition takes everything you know and love about the BD-2 and steps it up a notch. Even the standard mode has been significantly improved, featuring an all new, high-quality buffer circuit and premium parts selection to lower the noise floor and increase fidelity of your clean signal. The Custom mode is where things really take off, though. This adds an entirely new world of sounds to the BD-2, increasing the gain, low end presence, and sustain capabilities into new realms never before seen in its classic blue case. The Waza Craft series of pedals are made in Japan to exacting standards featuring top of the line parts and an updated buffer design for more transparent bypass than ever before. If you like your overdrives amp-like and responsive and are looking for a pedal with a ton of range, the BD-2W is just what you're looking for. Come try one today!
Passionately designed by the master engineers at BOSS in Japan, the Waza Craft BD-2W delivers a premium stomp experience that fans of customized pedal tone will love. Crafted with an ear for highly refined sound, the BD-2W takes the classic Blues Driver grit to a new level with all-discrete analog circuitry. Standard mode captures the classic BD-2 tone while Custom mode delivers new body and sustain.
