Boss Waza Craft Buffer
« on: July 19, 2019, 09:54:47 AM »
I was watching the JHS Blog video yesterday (shout out to KC local Seuf Guitars Shaun and Marq who built that offset with the maple neck and black inlays he was playing; they refinished my Johnny Marr Jag in Sherwood a while back), and Josh mentioned something about the "new improved Boss buffer."  Upon hearing that, I spent some time scouring the internet for information about this.  The consensus on sites like gearpage is that the buffer is indeed better, but no one really delves into whether or not the circuit change or if Boss is simply using higher quality transistors/ICs for their buffers. 

Has anyone here looked into the Waza line, and, if so, is the buffer some new topology or just more modern components?

I saw that and was wondering the same thing. He said it several times. I meant to look thru the comments to see if anyone had asked but I forgot.

I'll borrow a Waza from the guitar store I do repair jobs for and check the insides after the weekend, see what I can spot.

Any insight here? Seems rather specious to me...

Forgot to steal that waza pedal for a few days. Will try again soon.
