The ’68 Customs have become an extremely popular amp series for guitarists who love classic Fender sounds along with toneful modifications that resonate with today’s players. 

At just 5 watts, the original Vibro Champ was famous for classic Fender tremolo, tube sparkle and killer grind at a reasonable level. The ’68 Custom Vibro Champ Reverb improves on this classic amp by adding hall-emulating DSP reverb and using a larger 10” speaker for increased low end. These additions make this little wonder perfect for rehearsal, home recording and even small gigs.

Boss VB-2 Vibrato Waza Craft

Ahead of its time when it debuted in 1982, the VB-2 Vibrato has been rediscovered by modern players looking to create unique guitar textures with stompbox effects. Thanks to its expressive, one-of-a-kind sound, this rare pedal has gone on to become one of the most valuable BOSS effects in the vintage market. Now, the progressive spirit of the VB-2 has been reborn as the Waza Craft VB-2W. Using all-analog circuitry, the VB-2W authentically reproduces the true pitch-shifted vibrato of the original pedal, and also adds an innovative new vibrato mode and real-time control function for enhanced expression.

The BOSS Waza Craft Series now includes eight effects and one chromatic tuner, covering the spectrum of essential sound.

  • The BOSS HM-2 Heavy Metal is a true legend in the history of distortion pedals. Its signature “chainsaw tone” with all knobs maxed is the defining voice of Swedish death metal, and the slightly milder sides of its personality can be heard on tracks from mainstream to shoegaze. 
  • The BD-2W Blues Driver goes beyond the classic drive with all-discrete analog circuitry and a new Custom mode for a fuller tone with more sustain. 
  • The SD-1W SUPER Overdrive features similar enhancements, adding all-discrete analog circuitry and a new Custom mode, expanding the tonal range and increasing gain. 
  • The DM-2W Delay is back and 100% analog, bringing its legendary bucket-brigade circuitry with it, as well as a new Custom mode for more tonal expression and varying delay times. 
  • BOSS’s first pedal, the CE-2W Chorus, goes wide with new stereo out wiring and additional stereo CE-1 circuitry with variable chorus depth. 
  • The VB-2 Vibrato adds momentary “Unlatch” functionality with real-time control for quick on/off flourishes.
  • The DC-2W Dimension C Chorus pedal evolves the original four-button control set to include new electronic switching options that span well beyond the capabilities of its predecessors, the DC-2 Dimension C pedal and SDD-320 Dimension D studio rack.
  • The infamous MT-2W Metal Zone cleans up its signature sound while expanding to include a new Custom mode for today’s more dynamic, high-gain players. 
  • And all this would be for not without the TU-3W. The classic Chromatic Tuner gets the Waza Craft treatment, offering the purest pass-through to date and your choice of true bypass or buffered operation.

By offering a second chance at perfection, BOSS arrives at a series all its own, impeccably built, incorporating, in some cases, decades of wisdom, hindsight, and technical mastery. Take another look. Browse BOSS Waza Craft for a new perspective on a lasting legacy.

Using 100-percent analog circuitry, the DM-2W’s Standard mode nails the lush sound and 20-300 ms delay range of the original DM-2. Flipping into Custom mode instantly changes the sound character to a cleaner analog tone with over twice the available delay time.
