Ever since being discontinued way back in 1984, the BOSS DM-2 Delay pedal has remained highly sought after by players everywhere for its warm, “bucket brigade” analog delay tone. Now, the DM is back! With the Waza Craft DM-2W, the coveted stomp has been reborn with switchable sound modes and greater versatility for today’s music styles. Using 100-percent analog circuitry, the DM-2W’s Standard mode nails the lush sound and 20-300 MS delay range of the original DM-2. Flipping into Custom mode instantly changes the sound character to a cleaner analog tone with over twice the available delay time.
BOSS kept the styling of the pedal familiar; with the classic magenta-hued chassis with a top panel sporting simple Repeat Rate, Echo, and Intensity controls. Like many classic delays, adjusting the knobs while playing can evoke funky pitch changes and intense self-oscillation for crazy controllable feedback.
Custom Mode Switch
With the Waza Craft initiative, BOSS brought back the classic DM-2 design and added a little something extra by way of a tiny S/C toggle switch. The "S" (Standard) mode is a reproduction of the vintage DM-2 circuit in all its analog glory. In this mode, the Repeat Rate knob can select delay times of 20-300 milliseconds. Switch over to the "C" (Custom) mode, and your signal goes through a more modern analog circuit offering longer delay times from 40-800 milliseconds and slightly higher fidelity repeats.
For complete control of your delay mix, separate outputs are available. The Output jack is the standard output, sending both the dry tone and the delay trails. While the relative loudness of the delay tones can be controlled with the Mix and Intensity knobs, using the Direct Out jack opens up more sonic opportunities. When you plug the DM-2W into a second amplifier, the pedal splits the dry and delay tones to be output separately creating a wide sound-stage not available to conventional single amplifier setups.
Expression Pedal Control
Near the instrument input jack is another input jack labeled RATE. Plug in a separately available expression pedal (like the Roland EV-5) and you can control the delay time dynamically without taking your hands off your guitar.
Classic BOSS Design
The DM-2W can run off of a single 9V battery or an optional external 9 VDC power supply. The electronics are encased in BOSS's iconic durable metal housing with a non-slip rubber base. The battery compartment can be easily accessed by unscrewing the thumbscrew at the front of the pedal. This pedal utilizes a buffered bypass for silent switching and driving long cable runs even while the pedal is disengaged.
