On the 1st of December 2020 we unveiled the BOSS TB-2W Tone Bender, inspired by the iconic Sola Sound Tone Bender MK II fuzz.
This two part series details the back story to several years of hard work and determination that saw the unlikely collaboration of two iconic brands. Despite Sola Sound and BOSS walking entirely different paths through guitar effects history, we share many of the same values.
The best of both brands is reflected in this unique pedal, honouring the unique tone, feel and response of the MKII using traditional components whilst bringing it in to the modern era in a compact pedal format and maintaining our incredibly high standards. The TB-2W epitomises WAZA Craftsmanship.
For episode one Ant Macari explains how the project came to be, why we chose the MKII Tone Bender and his reaction to the plugging in the first prototype, after believing it might have been an impossible task.
