Boss bring the Waza philosophy to tube amps (waza means art and technique - so sort of boutique) with the Waza Tube Amp Expander  reactive load attenuator with cabinet models, built in effects and effects loop. 

The idea is to be able to crank up your tube amp to get the full benefit of the Tube sound, but to soak up the power so you don't blow out the windows.

Useful for studio applications where you can get the full tone of a hardworking set of tubes, and also live where you can crank the amp, but keep the stage volume under control.

Waza Tube Amp Expander will be available in Spring at a price of $1299
