Several of the more technical, circuit-oriented members of this Forum have made the point that the components of any particular circuit, specifically the components and their respective values, are what makes that particular pedal's tone. Some (one?) of these members even has something to that effect in his signature. I don't dispute this. (Just personally am more interested in the tone itself.) With respect to the new Boss pedals, the marketing verbiage imply and the videos state that each circuit was meticulously "tweaked" somehow. If that is indeed the case, then the Waza pedals in stock/standard mode shouldn't sound exactly like the originals, as claimed.
