Classic Grit with a Custom Twist

A part of the Waza Craft line from BOSS, the BD-2W Blues Driver gives you iconic tube-amp overdrive with two distinct voices. Far more than a merely modified BD-2, the BOSS completely redesigned the BD-2W, using premium discrete analog components and adding a customized signal path that you can access with the flip of a mini toggle. In Standard mode, the BD-2W offers you the classically smoky and gritty Blues Driver tone, whereas Custom mode beefs up the low end and adds a healthy dose of sustain. No matter which mode you set it to, the BD-2W Blues Driver is bound to be an essential part of your pedalboard.

Waza Craft: a higher art of stompbox design

The Japanese word "waza" means art and technique, an appropriate name for BOSS's premium line of redesigned guitar effects pedals. You see, the pedal collectors here at Sweetwater have seen more than enough special-edition stompboxes that are only a paint job away from the originals, which is why we're so blown away by what BOSS has done with the Waza Craft series. Even in their Standard modes, Waza Craft pedals sound like idealized versions of the originals, offering the same sonic character that made them iconic, but with less noise and more consistent tone. And when you A/B the Standard mode and the Custom mod, the contrast is nothing short of astonishing.

BOSS Waza Craft BD-2W Blues Driver Guitar Effects Pedal Features:
  • A special edition of the classic BD-2 Blues Driver pedal with a switchable custom voice
  • Redesigned, discrete all-analog circuitry provides classic BD-2 character with added clarity
  • Mini toggle lets you switch back and forth between standard BD-2 sound and a custom voice
  • Custom mode offers added girth and sustain that's prefect for solo performance
  • Both modes remain highly responsive to volume and picking dynamics

Boss Blues Driver Waza Craft

Perfect for what I was looking for. (I've been using the Boss GT series since they first came out.) I wanted a simple pedal with a lot of versatility that would let me use the tone of both my guitars and my George Benson Hot Rod Deluxe. I did m research, both on-line and in guitar shops, and when I was ready to go with the BD-2 my Sweetwater guy, Jared (who also helped me with the Hot Rod Deluxe), encouraged me to try the Waza Craft series. It's not a huge amount of difference, but it gives me some nice options in tone. I couldn't find a better distortion pedal for my current use.

Everything it says it's supposed to be.

This pedal makes my tone absolutely sparkle (Strat through a Hot Rod Deluxe w/ ext cab). I play mainly rock and this pedal gives me the clean, punchy, slightly dirty tone I'm after on most songs that require no drive. Flip it over to the bridge pickup and the crunch is right there when I need it, even with the gain at only 9 o'clock. The Waza custom switch does exactly what they describe... gives it a little more full body and a bottom end boost that isn't muddy. I'm disappointed in myself for wanting to try this pedal for so long and never buying it.

Sweetwater is Awesome!!!

This product is wonderful! It gives just the sound I was looking for. But, what was even more impressive was the service I received from Sweet water. I have never experienced anything like it. Sweet water will be my first choice from now on. Thank you, Sweetwater!

New favorite

This pedal is very special. If you like to play the blues or classic rock, this is it. I play it through a Fender Blues Deluxe and it just sounds awesome. Versatile as it comes. Plenty of room to play and experiment. The Waza Craft takes it from 4.5 to 5 stars.
