With the recent explosion in popularity of boutique pedals, ones made from very small companies or just common effects that have been modded have taken become serious market makers in recent years. As a huge manufacturer, Boss has felt the sting of just simply being “uncool”. To answer this growing trend, Boss have revisited some of there original pedals from the '80s and given them some new life. Very small changes, not messing with the original recipe too much, the engineers in Japan have created something very special by incorporating a boutique mindset and fell into to a large, international form.
It is easy to see how special and important the Waza Craft pedals are to Boss by the fact that, for the first time ever, another logo makes an appearance on this infamous compact pedal. The symbol for “Waza” a Japanese word that translates to “art and technique” - as well as the words “Waza Craft” are boldly displayed on the footswitch of each of the three Waza pedals.
Boss has brought back the DM-2 analog delay - a favourite of Dave Grohl, Gary Moore, Billy Duffy, and others - that has not been seen since 1984, but it also opted to re-energize the Blues Driver and Super Over Drive, which have never been out of production since they were originally introduced in 1995 and 1981. But whether Boss reimagines current pedals or resurrects past darlings, the benefit for pedal freaks is nearly the same: You get hyper-evolved versions of the sounds you dig with an “extra” custom sound to boot, and all in the same casing that has proven itself to be near fail proof.
The original DM-2 analog delay way only produced from 1981-1984, when the advent of the more full- featured Boss DD-2 Digital Delay in 1983 ultimately tank the value proposition for the majority of the users. Tone-wise, however, there are certainly a ton of analog disciples out there, and the DM- 2 took on a kind of mythical quality. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, perhaps? In any case, it appears to be a great time to bring back the DM-2W.
It has that vintage nostalgia, it's butt-simple to use, and yet it also has up-to-date features such as dedicated dry and effected outputs (for layering textures and/or running two amps), and input for an optional expression pedal (to control delay time on the fly).
The Standard Mode produced clear repeats that folded in on themselves a bit to offer a darker timbre as the repeats decayed. If you're looking for some vibey dimension, but still want your picked notes to stand true, the DM-2w is a good choice, as the tone of the repeats should not clash with the original signal. In Standard Mode, your delay time is 20ms-300ms. In Custom Mode, you can get up to 600ms of delay. However, doubling the delay time isn't all you get when in Custom Mode. There's also an ever-so-slight modulation to the sound that can mimic tape coloration.
