Historical Spirit Breeds the Ideal Rock Sound
The Waza is Boss expertise and passion in amp form. It's made using the inherited spirit from historical master builders to create the ideal rock sound. The very first stack amp is still the benchmark for rock amps even now. Throughout history, master builders have worked to fine-tune the amp to discover the ideal rock sound. The 70s and 80s hard rock sound, called the “brown sound,” was born in this pursuit. With dynamics responding to a musician’s picking nuance, and such factors as growling low end, powerful midrange, bite, presence in the high end, airiness, and touch sensitivity all present in good balance. The Waza Amp has two types of amp characteristics: one delivers the classic sound of the very first stack amp, and the other has the ideal brown sound painstakingly tuned up with Boss' own interpretation. Each amp type has four channels — Clean, Crunch, Lead 1, and Lead 2 to perfectly suit the modern rock scene.
Dependable Durability for Creative Freedom
While the Waza Amp has ample power for any stage performance, it's free from the maintenance issues found in tube amps. The Waza architecture eliminates major drawbacks such as vibration damage, tube replacement, and other costly maintenance concerns. As such, the Waza Amp is basically maintenance-free and designed with Waza craftsmanship, which has the essence of Boss' reliability and endurance proven in the history of professional use for decades. You can count on the trusted sturdiness and dependability of the Waza Amp. It eliminates stress for the professional gigging artist who needs to concentrate on their creative process.
Vintage Tone Meets Modern Features
No tube amp player can resist cranking up the volume to get a true feeling of how an amp performs at its peak. With the Boss Waza Amp’s Power Control capability, you can get a richer overtone texture with a more dynamically responsive feel at any volume. The Waza amp features other functions that complement its historical innovative spirit with a modern expandability. Two EFX Loops with selectable parallel or series routing allow for advanced sound creativity in combination with stompboxes. A Line Out feature is also available which allows direct connectivity to external mixers or recording devices. In this way, you can get a powerful guitar amp sound just as if you were playing through the speakers. The Line Out Air Feel switch enables you to change the sound character of a mic setting. A special Cabinet Resonance switch on the Waza Amp magically changes the audibility of the sound coloration of the cabinet. Additionally, there is a foot controller that lets you change channels and switch effects on/off, as well as a USB Rec Out jack for recording directly to a computer.
