WATCH - NAMM 2016: Boss Announce WAZA Craft VB-2W VIBRATO and BC-1X Bass Compressor Pedals

New Boss VB-2W and BC-1X
New Boss VB-2W and BC-1X
The famed 1980s Boss VB-2 Vibrato pedal has been reincarnated in the acclaimed Waza Craft lineup. The iconic pedal-manufacturer has also announced the BC-1X Bass Comp - a multi-band compression pedal optimised for bass guitar.

The VB-2 pedal is highly prized pedal, renowned for innovative analog vibrato sounds with true pitch modulation. In its latest form, the Waza Craft edition not only faithfully recreates this vintage classic but adds more range and control.

An unlatch mode engages the effect when the switch is held, perfect for naturally applying vibrato effects as needed.

A dedicated low pass filter helps ensure that bold low-ended tones are accommodated perfectly with plenty of clarity. An optional expression pedal also allows you to manipulate the depth of sound on this iconic pedal.

The BC-1X Bass Comp boasts transparency, power and ease of use without affecting the core sound of your bass rig. The multi-band feature delivers right across the frequency spectrum of the signal and provides a more refined sound overall, unlike conventional compressors, which just work on the entire signal all at once.
