PRESS RELEASE: The engineers at BOSS have always focused on creating the finest guitar tones using the most suitable technology available - from old-school analogue circuits to high-tech DSP. Even today, BOSS products use both DSP and analogue components, because our philosophy is simply to use the best method to get the job done.
Continuing in this spirit, BOSS is proud to announce the special-edition Waza Craft series: three classic Boss pedals built around discrete analogue circuitry. In Japan, “Waza” is the term for art and technique, and these pedals represent the pinnacle of BOSS design and craftsmanship, delivering exceptional tone and touch response through carefully-selected discrete analogue components, refined circuitry, and meticulous attention to detail.
