I'm starting to go off the Waza idea. It's just mass producing existing/reissued pedals, sometimes with an additional feature. Which is kinda what Boss did anyway, before they thought of calling it Waza and charging a boutique premium.

Like, it occurred to me that if they released the DS-2 today, it would be hella expensive and it would be called a DS-1w.

Are they abandoning their usual sort-of-iterative design process?

Yes for cashmoney

I’m an og waza hater

Just reissue the pedals people want like the VB-2 without scalping people

I feel boss peaked with the DD-20 Giga delay or maybe that first red compact looper pedal

My DM-2W is pretty sweet. If you want a VB-2 just get a Behringer or TC Tailspin.

Well that’s two options one of which has terrible bypass and the other is very very ugly

Luckily I don’t want a vb-2 I was just figuratively speaking

This stuff makes sense to me (a socialist) but I gues capitalism gotta capitalise

How does the Marshall Shredmaster compare to a HM-2? I remember you built a couple of those aswell.

The 6CH vid is pretty good, compares it with a lot of more modern options.

Sounds GOOD but nothing remarkable (to me, at least); it’s like a smoother, mid-focussed DS1 with the right settings.

It's pretty different - doesn't get as high gain or loud and it's more of a smooth compressed drive - but the 3 band EQ makes it pretty easy to tweak.

A little on the noisy side hiss wise as I recall and a little weak volumewise too, both can be fixed though

IT HAS THAT CREEP SOUND YO

Looking forwards to hearing your takes on it.

BTW the Swedish Death Metal sound is everything on full but please do demo other tones!

Hilariously, the new Line 6 HX series update includes a HM-2 'Swedish Chainsaw' model; everyone's got HM-Fever.

I updated my HX Stomp last night and had a quick play- it definitely sounds inline with that 60 Cycle Hum video (who are apparently doing a demo today comparing this model with the real thing).

Funnily enough the friend who originally lent me his HM-2 just sent me this video out of the blue.

Nicely done demo mate.

Cheers. Its had a mixed reaction. I have been watching probably too many how to make your YouTube channel grow videos of late and went for a proper shitty YouTuber title which has upset a lot of people. However its easily done way better than any of my other videos in a couple of hours. I also got accused of posting the link in too many groups haha I can't win. I cant expect my bollox to go viral by its self I am not baby monkey on a skateboard!

Anyway I actually really enjoyed a lot of the tones available still Don't think its that special though.
