The BOSS CE-2W Chorus Waza Craft Special Edition pedal re-creates the classic sound of the CE-1 (and its successor, the CE-2) using premium all-analog circuitry. The Japanese word Waza and Craft translates as ‘art and technique,’ and implies meticulous design, an accurate name for BOSS's flagship line of redesigned guitar effects pedals.

Overview:

Boss has combined these two classic effects for the latest addition to its high-end Waza Craft series while adding a few new features along the way. 

It has two modes, “Standard” for CE-2 chorus tones, and “CE-1” for CE-1 chorus tones. The CE-1 was the original Boss effect and one of the first chorus pedals on the market. It is now regarded as a classic pedal, with originals commanding a high price. In CE-1 mode, the traditional chorus/vibrato sound is authentic recreated in full stereo, just like the original. In Standard mode, you get the sound of the follow-up, the CE-2. Although this pedal is more compact, it is still a classic. A tiny slider switch holds the key to the CE-2W's versatility. On the left is the standard position for smooth CE-2 sounds, but shift it over to the middle and you get the CE-1's definitive swirl, while the right engages its full-on vibrato mode for proper pitch-bending goodness. 

You can dial in the precise sound you want using Rate and Depth adjustments that apply to both modes. The right position activates a vibrato circuit—no doubt another nod to the original CE. The vibrato mode might be your first port of call for SRV Cold Shot-style Leslie leads, while its extreme depth makes it a dab hand. 

This small pedal has a wide spectrum of sounds, from subtle tone coloration to a rich, luscious chorus. The Boss CE-2W Waza Craft Chorus blends the best features of a traditional pedal and adds current boutique flexibility. 

Features:

  • Special edition Boss WAZA craft pedal 
  • Ce-1 Mode authentically reproducing the two stereo sound modes in the world's first chorus pedal
