This is amazing!!!!! I bought this over 6 months ago, and it is still makes godly sounds, and is built like a tank (figures, it's Boss brand). I use this to play the heaviest metal, or even general rock/alternative like Muse, and even Green Day. This pedal is versatile too, and VERY loud if you want it to be. Go out and get one if you play anything rock/alternative or metal. Just GO FOR IT :D Make sure to get the cable to plug it into the wall (like most all pedals, it burns through 9volts fast; every 5 hours or so of playtime). A Great buy, I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

It's very good for a small 1x10 or 1x8 amp combo. Gives a full stack metal sound for a small amp. I would not use this for a live setup. It has a very lose metal sound. I like my metal riffs tight. I think this pedal sounds like the digitech grunge pedal. I was disappointed with the sound, but im keeping it because i like collecting pedals.I own over 30 effect pedals. Metal is a matter of preference. Rock on Dudes!

    Comments about Boss ML-2 Metal Core Distortion Pedal:

    One of the things that really caught my eye on the BOSS-ML2 MetalCore was how versatile it was. This thing is AMAZING for all of those who play metal. Don't take that into consideration with djent players though because without a solid hate pedal, it's not as great as you would hope for it to be. Any other kind of metal such as power, post-hardcore, heavy metal, MetalCore or anything else along those lines, it's AMAZING!

      Comments about Boss ML-2 Metal Core Distortion Pedal:

      It DJ0NTs first of all. An extremely high gain pedal. I plugged this thing into a Roland Keyboard amp with no effects and my tone was KILLER. Add mids on the amp, that's all you need. Honestly running this throguh any amp with a decent speaker at any tuning is helpful. Also it's a durable little box, left her out in the rain after a show, she still runs fine. You can't a get a lighter distortion from this thing to be honest. You get metal, not classic rock. Handles drop tunings VERY WELL. Almost models a tube amp disto when cranked. Doesn't make excess noise, and I recommend using a cable instead of a 9v, that gives it the power it needs.

      False Advertising, Beware!!

      By Kris Irish

      from San Francisco, CA

      Comments about Boss ML-2 Metal Core Distortion Pedal:

      I was lured into buying this petal for its promise of proffering a tone ideal for grindcore and death metal riffing. A complete fatuity and false promise. It has extremely weak low and high ends and the volume levels are pitiful. THe instruction book also claims that the pedal can give you low ends with out down tuning! Again, complete hyperbole. You are definetly better off with the "Metal Zone" when its come to BOSS distortion.

        Comments about Boss ML-2 Metal Core Distortion Pedal:

        I was a bit skeptical on getting this because the name was a bit cheesy and I thought it would be a try-hard pedal and just suck, but no. This pedal is amazing. It's more of a buzz than an overdrive pedal, but it's not supposed to be an overdrive now is it? You can get a very good metalcore, post-hardcore, or even deathcore sound out of this. I love it.

        Comments about Boss ML-2 Metal Core Distortion Pedal:

        Boss ml-2.......its medal. Sounds good and rich. Its not all highs in the distortion. It sounds warm. I think they should have added a noise gate. That's the only thing I would change....but I still love it.

        Great distortion pedal!!!

        By Matt Aeschlimann

        from Butler PA

        Comments about Boss ML-2 Metal Core Distortion Pedal:

        So much crunch, so heavy.. This pedal goes hand in hand with detuning. Im a huge Mudvayne fan and the ML-2 gives you that Greg Tribbett sound and then some. Compared this pedal to the Medal Zone primarily and as flat as I thought it was, the Core was much heavier and well defined. Great for Mudvayne, Pantera, Alice In Chains.. ETC. I have to cut out my Humbuckers though to play Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Rush, Zeppelin... otherwise youre playing a death metal version of Houses of the Holy. Love this pedal.

          Comments about Boss ML-2 Metal Core Distortion Pedal:

          I love this pedal. It sounds amazing. You can get those really distorted tones you hear from early Bring Me The Horizon and Whitechapel, but you can also get a small amount of distortion if you want. I saw the review that says it sounds digital. It must be an amp issue, because this sounds spectacular.
