    That looks cool! [Not a fan of the original BD-2 though]
    Maybe its a little less harsh?

    They finally re-released the DM-2. So they are moving forward while looking back, careful guys, that's the way to walk into lamp posts!

    I expect it will only be a matter of time before the DM-2 vs DM-2W comparison demos appear.

    Interestingly the DM-2W has a longer delay mode, expression pedal input and direct non-echo output.

    But the big question is will Boss' claim stand up: "Standard mode completely reproduces the delay sound of the original DM-2"

    There's a bit more info about them here.

    The DM-2W looks like it could be interesting... but we will have to wait for some proper demos it seems.

    If that DM2 will last 30 years and sound like my original, it's a no brainer for me.

    Darn, I really wish I hadn't seen that DM-2!:twisted:
    Guess I'll raid the pedal drawer and flip a few for that one!

    I'm very interested in knowing what the "Custom" mode is on the Blues Driver. If they can retain the pedal's low gain sounds in Standard mode and give it usable mid to high gain sounds in Custom mode, I'm in.

    Some cool new stuff from the number one pedal company IMO. Can't wait to try it out.

    Can't wait for the modded modded Boss pedals.
    Because, you know, we had to remove the original mods and then mod the mods to produce these new mods that improve on the old mods because the old mods needed to be modded because transparency.

    Honestly, guys, the only thing I understand about Boss's explanation of the new Waza Craft BD-2W is that it has a 5-year warranty. The rest of the marketing gobble-de-gook could be for any pedal:

    BD-2W: Blues Driver
    Waza Craft Special Edition

    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.

    Special edition Waza Craft pedal delivers the ultimate BOSS tone experience
    Premium sound based on the classic BD-2 Blues Driver
    Newly revised, all-analog discrete amplifier circuit
    Standard and Custom sound modes
    Highly responsive to picking dynamics and volume changes
    BOSS five-year warranty


    Oh yeah, it costs $20 more than the current stock BD-2. I understand that, too.
