OVERVIEW

True vibrato expression, reborn with Waza innovation.

Ahead of its time when it debuted in 1982, the VB-2 Vibrato has been rediscovered by modern players looking to create unique guitar textures with stompbox effects. Thanks to its expressive, one-of-a-kind sound, this rare pedal has gone on to become one of the most valuable BOSS effects in the vintage market. Now, the progressive spirit of the VB-2 has been reborn as the Waza Craft VB-2W. Using all-analog circuitry, the VB-2W authentically reproduces the true pitch-shifted vibrato of the original pedal, and also adds an innovative new vibrato mode and real-time control function for enhanced expression.

Features
-Premium edition Waza Craft pedal delivers the ultimate BOSS tone experience -Custom mode features a totally new vibrato sound with unique filter wave -Standard mode provides a true reproduction of the vintage VB-2 Vibrato sound -All-analog circuit with BBD (bucket brigade) vibrato line
-Control the effect depth in real time with an optional expression pedal -Rise Time knob to control the initial onset of the vibrato effect
-Unlatch mode activates the effect only while pressing the pedal, ideal for adding vibrato to specific notes and chords
-Bypass mode takes the BBD out of the signal path to eliminate latency when the effect is off
-BOSS five-year warranty
