    You pic shows that you are to use the standard Boss PSA 9v adapter that all of their pedals use. It seems really unlikely that the jack barrel size would be different considering they have standardized everything in their line to the same size.

    I have 2 newish Waza pedals I love the delay it's the darkest delay I've ever heard. Both pedals work with the same power as all my other pedals (I have a lot of pedals.)

    Not just their line, but they literally set the standard for powering effects pedals in general!

    Boss, they're kinda the industry standard. Sure you can find some pedals that are better at what they do but Boss is everywhere and relatively inexpensive, especially used.

    not sure what the heck is going on here. all three are super cool pedals.

    Can't stress this enough--the pedal is not the issue. You are using one power cable that fits (the right angle cable plugged into the DD3), and the other straight cable (laying on top of the tuner) does not fit. The cable plugged into the DD-3 will also fit into the tuner pedal. Therefore the tuner pedal is not the issue, you are just using a completely incorrect cable. Godspeed, I don't think I can help you any further.

    Unless someone has modded one of your pedals for some strange reason, there’s no way on God’s green earth those two Boss pedals have different size jacks. Everyone knows Boss set the standard. Pedal makers all use the “Boss” size unless an odd power supply is required. The thing I don’t understand is, if they only work with a battery, why are trying to plug in the power adapter anyway?

    This entire thread wishes they could have those pedals in our hands so we could plug them into a standard PS and say, I told you so.

    I wholeheartedly disagree. BOSS is not the worst.
    Perhaps they are viewed upon as pedestrian and gets jealous hate because they are as ubiquitous as McDonalds, but they are far from the worst. I have several BOSS pedals that are 20-41 years old and they are all still going strong on all original parts.

    On topic, a stock BOSS adapter jack and plug is 2.1mm/5.5mm. All name brand power supplies use these measurements.

    will the angled jack in the first pic that's in the delay fit the waza?

    if not, is it possible that the waza is a counterfeit?

    The Boomerang uses 2.5, not 2.6 diameter plugs.
