Modern Control for Vintage Amps:
Whether you rock a Plexi head or combo Champ, if you’re a tube enthusiast, you’re sure to love all the BOSS Waza Tube Amp Expander can do for your setup.
Reactive loadbox with XLR outs:
A challenge for any gigging guitarist, regardless of experience, is translating the nuanced response of an amp in a room into a microphone and out to your listeners’ ears. With the Waza Tube Amp Expander, outputting your signal in glorious hi-fi is as easy as running a cable to FOH. Balanced XLR outputs give players options for mono or stereo outputs.
Onboard cab and mic sims, plus a 4-spot IR loader:
Of course, running a direct output from an amp rarely sounds as good as it does filtered through a sweet speaker cabinet. That’s why the Waza Tube Amp Expander gives you seven onboard cab emulations and five selectable mic types to virtually manipulate your sound without loss of signal or clarity. One of the Waza Tube Amp Expander’s standout features is it allows you store up to four custom speaker impulse responses (IRs) onboard, making this amp companion not just feature packed, but virtually future proof as well.
10 loadable amp presets:
Unlike other units on the market, the Waza Tube Amp Expander lets you save and recall settings to instantly pair with 10 of your favorite amps.
100 watts of Class A/B power:
If you love driving your AC15 at practice levels but find its cleans a bit bottlenecked for larger stages, the BOSS Waza Tube Amp Expander gives you an additional hundred watts of transparent, Class A/B cab fuel to drive an additional speaker cabinet without compromising the tone you love.
10 onboard BOSS effects:
With the Waza Tube Amp Expander’s onboard stereo reverb, compression, delay, and more, you can leave your pedalboard at home and still enjoy all the trappings of the modern performance platform.
FX loop equipped:
Today’s players like to run their dirt boxes into the front of their amps and insert time-based effects, such as reverbs and delays, into an effects loop after the preamp stage. The problem for vintage players is, most of our amps don’t have native FX loops. The Waza Tube Amp Expander turns the tide by giving your classic amp an FX loop for choosier stomp management and 4-cable floor unit integration.
Powerful MIDI hub:
The BOSS Waza Tube Amp Expander makes a full-fledged command center for any advanced stomp setup. MIDI in and out lets you control compatible MIDI effects and footswitches, including the BOSS GA-FC and FS series switches.
USB audio out and editing:
You can inject premium 32-bit/96kHz audio from your guitar amp directly into your DAW session using the Waza Tube Amp Expander’s onboard cab sims and USB connection — no mic or external interface required. This connection doubles a communication port for managing presets within the editor app. Ready your vintage amp for the digital age with the BOSS Waza Tube Amp Expander from Sweetwater.
