White tape, or clear tape with white paper over the LEDs is what I use outside. It's just enough to see if it's on.


Interesting and ingenious! I may have to try that when stuck like that again.

The waza edition BD-2 really is great - it’s a BD-2 lover’s BD-2.

I recall being impressed when demoing both it and the SD-1W a while back. Both of the second "channel" functions seemed to nicely address any issues I otherwise had with the first.

For my purple-esque board though I'm tempted by a VB-2W :D

Purple is always good!
Some of my favourite pedals are the BF-2 and the EBS Billy Sheehan drive which is also purple.. :thumbs:

Can't argue with that! :lol:

I currently have three BF-2's of different label colors, which is really overkill but haven't the heart to lose one yet. Love the fat black knobbed type. :thumbs:

That's unintentionally very funny. If I'm not totally on the wrong track, the circuits have been made by Maxon and were used by Ibanez with Maxon's permission. :)

Great board, man! You know that I deeply appreciate your choices. :thumbs:

Maxon were the company that ibanez subcontracted to make their pedals back in the day... the pedals were entirely made by Maxon and badged ibanez.

..furthermore in modern times Maxon and Ibanez have parted ways, and both currently and interdependently produce variants and iterations of those original designs.

Ibanez caters for the mid-end market (offering and owning the trademark to, the "Tubescreamer"), whilst Maxon re-positioned as a higher end (typical $100 more per pedal) producing upgraded higher-spec versions. The Maxon pedals are very good indeed :thumbs:
