    Magical Enhancement
    For generations, savvy guitarists have relied on key pieces of analog gear to enhance their core tone. Though discontinued over 30 years ago, the CE-1 and RE-201 remain widely used by many players for their characterful preamps as much as their famous analog effect sounds. These “secret weapons“ make the sound richer, fuller, and more satisfying to play, even when their effect processing is bypassed. The BP-1W lets you integrate the magical tone-shaping properties of these legends into your own rig—without having to seek out rare and expensive vintage originals.

    Versatile Analog Sound Shaping
    The BP-1W is one of the most flexible boost pedals available, offering three unique operation modes in a single compact stomp. Along with CE and RE vintage modes, a third mode provides a pristine clean boost when you want to pump the volume without added color. The Gain knob allows you to dial in a range of saturation and drive tones unique to each mode, while the Level knob lets you balance the effect/bypass sound or push downstream pedal and amp inputs for further tonal enhancement.

    Choose Your Tone Color
    CE—This mode reproduces the CE-1 preamp tone, known for its bright, bell-like character and tight low-end response. Tweak the Gain knob to conjure an array of pleasing tones, from mild to aggressive.
    RE—This mode reproduces the unique color and response of the RE-201 preamp circuitry. It adds fatness and warmth even at the lowest Gain settings, with increasing saturation as the knob is turned up. You can achieve powerful driven sounds with rich analog compression characteristics, providing foundational vintage color to feed pedals and amps.
    NAT—Produces a punchy, natural voice with minimal coloration. The modern analog Waza Craft circuitry provides a wide boost range, delivering top performance for any standard clean boost application.

    Two Premium Buffers
    The BP-1W features high-quality buffer circuitry with two selectable types. Slide the rear panel switch to choose between the pure signal of a standard buffer or a vintage buffer with lower input impedance. The vintage type produces a warmer tone and a smooth dynamic response, with maximum benefits achieved by connecting a guitar with passive pickups directly to the BP-1W’s input. The standard buffer is always engaged for signal conditioning when the pedal is bypassed, regardless of the buffer switch setting.

    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 with the Waza Craft series, bringing 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.

  • Earthquaker Tone Job V2 EQ and Booster
    Earthquaker Tone Job V2 EQ and Booster
    This compact Boost & EQ device is based around the tone-shaping options available in old audiophile-grade stereo preamps, making it a great addition to your pedalboard, no matter what instrument you play.

    So what does that mean, exactly? It means that you’ll hear full frequency response from your Tone Job everywhere you plug it in – guitar, bass, drum machine, synthesizers, steel drums, harpsichord, kazoo, car stereo, or wherever!

    The Tone Job has active EQ controls for Bass, Mid and Treble, with up to 20 dB of cut or boost, which is handy for pairing up with other pedals in your chain to breathe new life into old dirt. Unlike boring old graphic EQs, the Tone Job’s EQ controls are interactive, so you can experiment with different settings to alter the response and overall feel of the device, getting your tone out of the lunchroom and back on the clock.

    Place the Tone Job at the beginning of your chain to alter the overall character of your guitar, or use it at the end to boost output at the end of a long cable run and fine-tune your tone. The Level control on the Tone Job can boost your signal up to 5x the original input level, so you’ll always be heard, and makes for a fantastic solo and/or clean boost!

  • Electro-Harmonix PICO DEEP FREEZE Sound Retainer / Sustainer
    Electro-Harmonix PICO DEEP FREEZE Sound Retainer / Sustainer
    Meeting between the original Freeze and Superego pedals is the Pico Deep Freeze Sound Retainer. With the ability to freeze a moment in sound, the Deep Freeze can act as a sustain pedal for holding chords and notes as backing for your playing or as a platform to manipulate your tone into new sounds impossible with a normal guitar. In addition to the original Freeze’s abilities, the Deep Freeze features layering, adjustable attack/decay speeds, glissando, dedicated volume controls, and 3 modes: Latch, Moment, and Auto, making it powerful pedal punching well above its weight.

    The Deep Freeze allows for instant sound freezing in three modes of operation. Latch freezes sound each time the footswitch is pressed until the effect is bypassed, while Moment mode freezes sound only while the footswitch is held down. Auto mode captured sound automatically each time it senses signal above its threshold for virtually foot-free freezes. These three modes make it easy to operate the Deep Freeze in a way that fits any playing style.

    Controls on the Deep Freeze let you further tailor the operation of the effect. Separate DRY and EFFECT volume controls let you blend signals from subtle backing to 100% effect experimentation. GLISS adjusts the morph time between freeze sounds creating otherworldly soundscapes. The SPEED/LAYER knob adjusts either the attack/decay time of the effect in Moment and Auto modes, or the amount of layering possible in Latch mode which makes playing impossible chords possible!
    • Compact Pico chassis
    • Instantly capture and freeze input sound
    • Three modes of operation: Latch, Moment, and Auto

    Simple, effective compression – optimized for acoustic instruments – makes it easy to gain control over your playing dynamics.

    Compressors can be difficult to set, especially when fine-tuning the extended dynamic range of your acoustic instrument. AcoustiComp sets these critical parameters behind-the-scenes to give you great results with the turn of a knob. Based on the popular Aura Spectrum compressor, AcoustiComp provides mild, effective dynamic leveling designed specifically for acoustic instruments. Crank up the Comp knob to fatten your tone. Or turn it up a little to add light compression and help your instrument sit better in a mix without sacrificing tone.
      AFX AcoustiComp features:
    • Compression Amount and Level Controls
    • True Bypass with Buffered Bypass Option
    • Innovative Dual Path Routing
    • Super compact design fits almost anywhere
    • 9V external power required (sold separately)
    With true bypass, the pedal’s electronics are literally removed from the signal chain. For those who prefer a buffered bypass, AFX Mini effect pedals are switchable.

    All AFX Minis are compatible with standard guitar instrument cables. They also feature an innovative dual channel audio path that lets you create two independent effect chains with a single series of cables. Simply connect several AFX Minis together with TRS “stereo” guitar cables and set the Audio Path switch on each pedal to “Tip” or “Ring.” Pedals set to “Tip” will create one effect chain while pedals set to “Ring” will create another effect chain.

  • NUX Masamune Booster/Compressor Pedal
    NUX Masamune Booster/Compressor Pedal
    Booster and Compressor Pedals are the gigging guitarist's secret weapon. Both pedals are now available in one convenient metal housing, and it comes with selectable signal routing. The Boost Section comes with Boost Level, Drive, and Hi-Cut controls. The Compressor Section comes with Komp Level, Sustain, Blend, and Clip controls. The Masamune has an external foot-switch jack Input, you can easily operate the pedal by using an additional remote switch.

    NUX Masamune is a sound-crafter pedal

    It forges your dry-signal, enhancing your sound before sending your signal to your amp, and/or any effects unit. The Booster adds beneficial color to your signal, and, if necessary, after you adjust the boost & drive levels, you can cut high frequencies on your Input signal with the Hi-Cut Toggle Switch. Masamune’s Kompressor does a remarkable job managing and enhancing your signal:

    Komp Level knob adjusts the final Output level for the Compressor, perfectly balancing your Input and Output signals.

    Sustain knob adjusts the compression ratio, and increases sustain. Higher sustain levels will squash your signal harder when you hit the strings and creates a longer, richer sustain. Blend knob adjusts the compressor transparency from 50% to 100%, so you can dial-in the exact amount of compressed dry-signal blend you want.

    Clip Toggle allows you to choose the clipping range of your Input signal. The Toggle-UP position will squeeze the signal for voluminous sound, and Toggle-DOWN will open up more space on your clipping range.

    Inside Routing

    NUX Masamune Booster & Kompressor has inside routing with 3 Functions:

    - Use both effects in parallel connection.
    - Toggle-UP the MUTEX to engage only one effect at a time.
    - Choose which effect you want to come first on your signal chain. ​
