Boss partners with Sola Sound for the Waza Craft Tone Bender TB-2W
Boss has finally lifted the veil on the mysterious Waza Craft pedal it’s been teasing since last month. Introducing the Waza Craft Tone Bender TB-2W, designed in collaboration with Sola Sound.
The TB-2W Tone Bender is described as an “authentic sonic recreation” of the legendary Tone Bender MK II, the iconic fuzz pedal heard on some of rock’s most iconic songs, spanning the 60s, through to today.
The pedal references a “masterpiece” Tone Bender MK II from Sola Sound’s archives. On top of that, it also features the same textured enclosure and knob designs as the Tone Bender.
The TB-2W will be available in a limited production run; each is said to feature rare germanium transistors “carefully tested for optimum tone” as well as a three-way voltage selector, true/buffered bypass operation options and a “refined circuit design” for ultra-consistent performance between pedals.
More information on the pedal is set to be revealed, but Boss have announced that it will become available in Q2 of 2021.

“Well. I honestly did not see that coming,” The Tone Mob wrote in an Instagram post. “But I’m here for it. Let’s get weird and fuzzy good people.”
60 Cycle Hum added, “A waza tone bender. That’s pretty wild.”
