A breakthrough bass experience through Waza innovation
Like Waza-Air has done for guitarists, Waza-Air Bass delivers a totally new personal playing solution for bassists through cutting-edge Boss innovation. Far more than a simple headphone amp, Waza-Air Bass fuses premium amp, effects and wireless technologies with dynamic 3D sound, delivering a unique bass amplification experience that's never been available until now.
Satisfying and inspiring
Practicing bass at home through an amp can be problematic because low frequencies can travel through walls and disturb others. Using headphones is often a necessary solution, but the sound lacks the depth of the in-room experience. Waza-Air Bass changes that, restoring the natural dimension, resonance and 'moving air' feel that's lost with traditional phones. An integrated gyro sensor tracks your head movements as you play, driving sophisticated 3D algorithms that provide spatial realism that must be heard to be believed. And it all happens automatically, so all you have to do is plug in and go!
Premium amps and effects, tuned for bass
Waza-Air Bass comes with loads of great-sounding amps and effects, with full customization and ready-to-play presets available via the companion Boss Tone Studio app. Five different bass amp types provide everything from clean and punchy modern sounds to vintage and driven tube-style voicings. There's also a massive selection of bass-tuned effects to choose from, including staples like compressor, overdrive, EQ and T-wah, rich modulation and ambience effects and specialty sounds such as octave, bass synth, ring mod and more. And with six onboard memories, you can store favorite setups and scroll through them with dedicated buttons.
Get your groove on
With a wide range of onboard rhythms, your daily practice sessions with Waza-Air Bass are always fun and productive. Ten acoustic drum patterns are available complete with easy BPM and reverb control in the Boss Tone Studio app. There's an advanced metronome, too, with 32 rhythm variations that include triplets and odd meters like 5/4 and 7/4. You can store six different rhythm setups in the app, ready for quick recall when you want to jam.
Choose your space
The advanced ambience setups in Waza-Air Bass provide three realistic environments to play in. Surround mode places the amp in a virtual room, providing an immersive experience like playing in a recording studio. Things get even more realistic with Static mode, where the combined amp and room sound changes depending on where you move your head. Stage mode lets you step into the spotlight with the amp sound coming from a virtual backline behind you, along with the onboard acoustic drum patterns or music streamed from your phone over Bluetooth.
No wires, no hassle
All audio connectivity with Waza-Air Bass is 100% wireless for a hassle-free experience. With the ability to move and play in complete freedom, you'll never get tangled up or pull off your headphones by stepping on a cable. And thanks to advanced wireless tech inherited from Boss's acclaimed WL series, you'll always enjoy premium sound quality and great playing feel with ultra-low latency. Auto standby and wake functions conserve battery life between playing sessions, minimizing the need to plug in and recharge.
High-quality sound and rugged build
Equipped with large, custom-designed 50mm drivers, Waza-Air Bass provides rich, full sound for both bass playing and music listening. The conforming earpads and wide headband are super-comfortable for extended playing sessions, while the rugged build ensures lasting durability for everyday practice and jamming. Waza-Air Bass folds down into a compact size for storage or sliding into the pocket of an instrument bag. An optional case (sold separately) is also available for securely carrying the headphones, WL-T transmitter and USB charging cable in one package.
