Boss DC-2w Waza Craft Dimension C Chorus

The genuine Boss and Roland Dimension effect is back, and it's now more versatile than ever! Designed in the premium Waza Craft analog tradition, the Boss DC-2w offers not just a perfect sonic recreation of the original DC-2 Dimension C pedal, but also the legendary SDD-320 Dimension D studio rack effect it was based on. The DC-2W features the same intuitive four-button preset interface as the original '80s-era effects, now evolved with electronic switching that unlocks a multitude of sonic variations not available on the vintage units.

Highly sought-after by musicians and audio engineers, the Dimension's unique spatial processing magically enhances the width and depth of any sound, from electric and acoustic guitars to keyboards, vocals, and other sources. Built from the original circuit designs and updated with modern refinements, the DC-2W is the only pedal available that delivers the classic Dimension experience with complete sonic authenticity.

Features

- Premium Waza Craft pedal with all-analog audio circuitry
- Standard mode provides the sound of the original DC-2 Dimension C pedal
- SDD-320 mode authentically reproduces the vintage Roland SDD-320 Dimension D, a legendary studio rack effect heard on countless hit records
- Iconic four-button preset interface, updated with reliable electronic switches and LED status indicators
- Four main sounds in each mode, plus six variations by pressing two switches together (20 total sounds available)
- Premium buffer and enhanced bypass circuitry
- Versatile I/O for integrating with any mono or stereo application, from guitar and bass pedalboards to keyboards and studio mixing
- Made in Japan
- Boss five-year warranty

Enhance Your Sound with Natural Width and Depth

The vintage Dimension effect is famous for its innovative 3D spatial processing that just makes everything sound a little better. It's often mistakenly called a chorus effect, but it's actually not. Though time-based like a chorus, the Dimension's circuit is quite unique and sophisticated, subtly enhancing the width and depth of the source audio without any prominent modulated movement. The resulting sound is more open and natural, gently enriching any instrument or mix without making it sound overly processed.

Four Switches, Expanded Sonic Possibilities

Just like the original Dimension effects, the DC-2W offers a simple and direct interface with four preset switches that provide sonic variations with increasing width and depth. While the originals had mechanical switches, the DC-2W is equipped with modern electronic switches and status LEDs for more solid performance. The switches also allow you to press two at once to access a variety of additional sounds. Across the DC-2W's two effect modes (S and SDD-320), 20 different Dimension variations are possible with just four switches.

Authentic Tones with Modern Refinements

In the Waza Craft tradition, the DC-2W delivers vintage analog tones with modern design refinements for enhanced performance and versatility. Along with the now electronic mode switches, the pedal features a redesigned internal bypass circuit that greatly improves on that found in the original DC-2. In addition, versatile I/O enables the pedal to blend in with any mono or stereo rig, from regular guitar setups to audio interfaces and studio mixing consoles. And like all Waza Craft pedal models, the DC-2W includes a premium buffer circuit for ultra-transparent tone when the pedal is switched off.

The Roland SDD-320 Dimension D: A Studio Legend

Very quickly after its debut in 1979, the Roland SDD-320 Dimension D became a go-to secret weapon for audio engineers and music producers around the world. It can be heard on countless classic records in all genres, and is still regularly used today. From guitars, electric pianos, and synths to strings, backing vocals, and more, the Dimension D injects instant spatial mojo and sonic glue without creating an obvious "effect" sound.

The DC-2W's SDD-320 mode fully captures the original Dimension D vibe in every way. Many engineers like to press multiple buttons on the Dimension D rack for unique sounds. But in truth, only two actual sound variations are technically possible with this undocumented feature. With its modern switching, the DC-2W's SDD-320 mode enables six sound variations when two buttons are pressed, including four "in-between" sounds and two Waza-exclusive voices.

The Boss DC-2 Dimension C: 3D Sound in a Compact Pedal

Introduced in 1985, the DC-2 Dimension C pedal brought the Dimension D's distinctive spatial effect to the Boss compact pedal format. While the Dimension D was designed as a studio effect that supported either mono or stereo input sources, the DC-2 was specifically created for mono sources like guitar, and features a modified circuit that produces a Dimension effect with a slightly different tonal flavor.

When S (Standard) mode is selected, the DC-2W delivers the exact sound of the original DC-2 pedal. Despite players trying, pressing multiple buttons on the DC-2 didn't actually produce any sound variations. Similar to SDD-320 mode, pressing two buttons at once in the DC-2W's S mode provides access to six different "in-between" sounds not available on the original DC-2.

Waza Craft: The Art of Superior Tone

Since the beginning, the engineers at Boss have been committed to achieving the finest guitar tones using any technology necessary, from old-school analog circuits to high-tech DSP. This enthusiastic spirit continues on with the Waza Craft series, which brings you exceptional tone and touch response through carefully selected analog components, refined circuitry, and meticulous attention to detail. In Japan, "Waza" is the term for art and technique, and these special edition pedals proudly carry the Waza symbol to represent the pinnacle of Boss design and craftsmanship.

Overall: I have gone through numerous chorus pedals in the past ten years. Most of them high end boutique. This is by far the best chorus pedal for my needs. It's subtle yet adds space to the notes. Plays well with high gain and does not lower or boost the volume. I play mostly 80's and 90's metal which this pedal is perfect for.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: I bought this expensive chorus pedal for my Synthesizer Keyboard. I use only stereo pedals, so this DC-2w caught my eye. After receiving it from zZounds, I plugged it in to my isolated power brick, hooked up my gold-platted cables and turned the power on. Now after playing a couple hours with this pedal, I love it and hate it. I love its chorus sounds but not the limited options, however, it has a noticeable volume drop that would be about 20% of gain loss when the pedal effect is on. This is not cool if I am doing Synth Leads..There is no way to boost the volume of the pedal internally. I don't know if this happens with guitar connections at High Impedance, but keyboards operate at a Low Impedance so maybe that is the problem for this pedal. I wish they had a volume boost switch for keyboards, or a louder preset option so i can balance out my sound levels.I prefer my Boss CE-20 twin pedal for my Chorus effects, which has the Dimension C and volume boost options too. The CE-20 is discontinued but can still be found online. This is my recommendation since the DC-2w is a disappointment.
