BOSS has added the DC-2W Dimension C and MT-2W Metal Zone to its Waza Craft range of premium compact pedals, bringing the total to eight.
The DC-2W Dimension C ushers in the return of two popular BOSS and Roland effects from the 1980s. Designed in the Waza Craft analogue tradition, according to the manufacturer: ‘…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 Dimension’s unique spatial processing enhances the width and depth of any sound, from electric and acoustic guitars to keyboards, vocals, and other sources.
DC-2W users can choose between DC-2 and SDD-320 modes with a panel switch. The pedal provides the same intuitive four-button preset interface found on the original effects, now evolved with electronic switching: ‘…that unlocks sonic variations not available on the vintage units. Across the DC-2W’s two effect modes, 20 different Dimension variations are possible with just four switches’.
First released in 1991, the MT-2W features a dual-stage gain circuit enhanced with discrete analogue components, plus a refined EQ circuit with smoother midrange tone and unique Q values specially tuned for the pedal’s two operation modes. Boss says the MT-2W’s Standard mode delivers an evolved version of the original mid-focused Metal Zone tone, while Custom mode introduces a fresh, wide-ranging voice that’s perfectly suited for today’s diverse high-gain styles.
