Boss DC-2W Dimension C Waza Craft Chorus Pedal

$249.99
From Boss:

The genuine BOSS and Roland Dimension effect is back, and its now more versatile than ever! Designed in the premium Waza Craft analog tradition, the DC-2W offers not just a perfect sonic recreation of the original DC-2 Dimension C pedal, but also the legendary SDD-320 Dimension D studio rack effect it was based on. The DC-2Wfeatures the same intuitive four-button preset interface as the original 80s-era effects, now evolved with electronic switching that unlocks a multitude of sonic variations not available on the vintage units. 

Highly sought-after by musicians and audio engineers, the Dimensions unique spatial processing magically enhances the width and depth of any sound, from electric and acoustic guitars to keyboards, vocals, and other sources. Built from the original circuit designs and updated with modern refinements, the DC-2W is the only pedal available that delivers the classic Dimension experience with complete sonic authenticity. 

Enhance Your Sound with Natural Width and Depth 
The vintage Dimension effect is famous for its innovative 3D spatial processing that just makes everything sound a little better. Its often mistakenly called a chorus effect, but its actually not. Though time-based like a chorus, the Dimensions circuit is quite unique and sophisticated, subtly enhancing the width and depth of the source audio without any prominent modulated movement. The resulting sound is more open and natural, gently enriching any instrument or mix without making it sound overly processed. 

Four Switches, Expanded Sonic Possibilities 
Just like the original Dimension effects, the DC-2W offers a simple and direct interface with four preset switches that provide sonic variations with increasing width and depth. While the originals had mechanical switches, the DC-2W is equipped with modern electronic switches and status LEDs for more solid performance. The new switches also allow you to press two at once to access a variety of additional sounds. Across the DC-2Ws two effect modes (S and SDD-320), 20 different Dimension variations are possible with just four switches. 

Authentic Tones with Modern Refinements 
In the Waza Craft tradition, the DC-2W delivers vintage analog tones with modern design refinements for enhanced performance and versatility. Along with the new electronic mode switches, the pedal features a newly designed internal bypass circuit that greatly improves on that found in the original DC-2. In addition, versatile I/O enables the pedal to blend in with any mono or stereo rig, from regular guitar setups to audio interfaces and studio mixing consoles. And like all Waza Craft pedal models, the DC-2W includes a premium buffer circuit for ultra-transparent tone when the pedal is switched off.

The Roland SDD-320 Dimension D: A Studio Legend 
Very quickly after its debut in 1979, the Roland SDD-320 Dimension D became a go-to secret weapon for audio engineers and music producers around the world. It can be heard on countless classic records in all genres, and is still regularly used today. From guitars, electric pianos, and synths to strings, backing vocals, and more, the Dimension D injects instant spatial mojo and sonic glue without creating an obvious effect sound.  

The DC-2Ws SDD-320 mode fully captures the original Dimension D vibe in every way. Many engineers like to press multiple buttons on the Dimension D rack for new and different sounds. But in truth, only two actual sound variations are technically possible with this undocumented feature. With its modern switching, the DC-2Ws SDD-320 mode enables six sound variations when two buttons are pressed, including four in-between sounds and two all-new voices.       

The BOSS DC-2 Dimension C: 3D Sound in a Compact Pedal 
Introduced in 1985, the DC-2 Dimension C pedal brought the Dimension D’s distinctive spatial effect to the BOSS compact pedal format. While the Dimension D was designed as a studio effect that supported either mono or stereo input sources, the DC-2 was specifically created for mono sources like guitar, and features a modified circuit that produces a Dimension effect with a slightly different tonal flavor. 

When S (Standard) mode is selected, the DC-2W delivers the exact sound of the original DC-2 pedal. Despite players trying, pressing multiple buttons on the DC-2 didn’t actually produce any sound variations. Similar to SDD-320 mode, pressing two buttons at once in the DC-2Ws S mode provides access to six different in-between sounds not available on the original DC-2.

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. This enthusiastic spirit continues on with the Waza Craft series, which brings you exceptional tone and touch response through carefully selected analog components, refined circuitry, and meticulous attention to detail. 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.

  • The Warthog Distortion goes right for the gut of all other distortions, offering incredible sonic range from a crystal-clear clean boost to scorched earth crunch.
  • Those who know know Danish Pete. His signature overdrive and boost, The Dane, is the ace-in-the-hole for dynamic players who demand versatility. 
  • The Bunker Drive beefs up the famous Brown Source, increasing volume and adding a texture control while packing it all into a smaller, pedalboard-friendly enclosure.
  • The Peacekeeper Low-Gain Overdrive pairs an active, post-gain control for treble and bass with a pre-gain mids/presence control for total tonal tailoring. 
  • ThorpyFx's first, the Gunshot Overdrive, puts every other overdrive in its crosshairs with a proprietary "gain engine" for maximum tonal range. 
  • The Field Marshall Fuzz improves on the legendary Big Cheese, shrinking the footprint, increasing the volume, and adding a tonestack bypass for more options. 
  • The Fallout Cloud Fuzz pays tribute to Triangle-era effects while simultaneously doing its best to blow them all out of the water. 
  • The Deep Oggin brings Lovetone's Dan Coggins back into the spotlight with 100%-analog chorus and vibrato circuitry, just like how it used to be. 
  • The Heavy Water isolates The Dane's desirable boost circuit into a small, standalone enclosure, adding a germanium diode-based boost in the second channel for switching or stacking, because why not?
  • The third installment in ThorpyFx's "Vintage Reimagined" Series, the Veteran Si Vintage Fuzz and Boost squeezes silicon-based Smiley- and Rangemaster-style circuitry into one exclosure. 
  • Thorpy promotes the OTC-201 compressor to create the Fat General, a pedalboard tank, adding balance and sustain to your signal without the extra noise.
  • The Team Medic Buffer, EQ, Boost, and Boost + offers tonal first aid for all, equally suited to the electric guitar as it is to bass and more. 
  • Also produced in collaboration with Dan Coggins, the Camoflange Flanger is another all-analog blast from the past, with modern functionality making it more versatile than any vintage model.
