    Comments about Boss BD-2W Blues Driver Waza Craft Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I love my BD-2, but was considering some mods to make the gain and highs smoother. Then instead of modding the BD-2, I got the BD-2W. There is certainly an audible improvement in the tone quality. In standard mode, the highs are smoother and more pleasant to the ears. In custom mode, the bass sounds fuller. Both modes retain the transparent quality that the BD-2 is known for. Highly recommended OD pedal!

      I had the BD-2 and this smokes it! I bought mine open box for less and it was mint! Very happy, I use it to drive my Telecasters through a '59 Bassman, Blues Deluxe 1x12, or Blues Deville 4x10, mmmmmmm, yeah.

          Awesome pedal... has some sounds I've never heard before come out of a boss pedal waited forever to get one... but well worth it... just a blues driver but a switch that gives it a little more steam

              Comments about Boss BD-2W Blues Driver Waza Craft Guitar Effects Pedal:

              Excellent pedal. I had never owned an original BD2 before i bought this so I couldn't truly compare but from what I understand the only real difference is the switch above the tone knob. Standard voicing(BD2) or custom voicing. I prefer the custom and leave it set on that always. The difference is relatively subtle but I find the custom sound to be just a little bit brighter. Also seems to me that it gives just a tad more sustain and has just a little bit more crunch at high gain settings. I pretty much never turn this pedal off when I'm playing. I use it for all of my so-called clean tones. I put a compressor in front of it and I keep the gain rolled back and it adds a very subtle but amazing coloration to the tone. And then I also use it for 90 percent of my high-gain tones. Paired with a fuzz in front and an EQ and reverb after I can get a variety of tones that I love from heavy doom sludgey stoner rock to classic fender tube amp tones to Clapton sounding fuzziness to massive walls of shoegazey thickness ala my bloody valentine. It works fantastic with both single coils and humbuckers. I use it with my les paul and telecaster and it reacts perfectly to both of them. I even use it with my bass sometimes it works surprisingly well just doesn't exactly fit with a bass cuts out some of the low end but good for some stuff. In short this an awesome pedal I love it. It interacts wonderfully with every other effect I use therefore is extremely versatile and it's a boss pedal so it's extremely durable.

                Good warm clarity and great for the neck single coil pickup of a Stratocaster.

                  I have a Gretsch Country Gentleman that I run through a Roland Cube 80. I needed a better slide tone. This provided it and then some. Simple to use and effective.
