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.

I arnt to gc to test out pedals, this being my number 1 in mind. I first tested the metal zone since the guy at gc said its better. I tried both out and the metalcore was just missing something, and the metalzone seemed perfect. I sat there testing both over and over messing with all the knobs and got the metalzone to get an even better distortion. I was glad to figure out the metalzone will be my choice. But as I walked out I heard a guy playong a bunch of metal rifts and he was using a hardwire pedal. I went and tested it out to find that its exactly what I was looking for. A lot of people say metalcore and others say metalzone, its all your opinion, but if your looking for something that you can really change distortion check out the hardwire tl2. If your not sure like I was go to gc and see what's best for you

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:

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.

System Of A Down in a box!

By KENNETH BAKER

from Trenton, MI

Comments about Boss ML-2 Metal Core Distortion Pedal:

Simply put, this distortion pedal sounds exactly like Daron Malakian's main heavy tone from System Of A Down with the right amp EQ. I also got it to sound like Slipknot's main sound after toying around with it the first day i got it. It's like a souped-up and fine-tuned DS-1 Distortion, with a ton more gain and a better refined EQ. The distortion is very grainy and sharp, great for detuning and for lower-tuned riffs. If you roll back the gain, you can get a light distortion out of it, great if you want to combine it with the gain from your amp or for a gain boost for soloing. I would definitely recommend this pedal to any level of metal-lover because it has the potential to excel in all of them!

Probably a 5 with a tube amp

By Nate Meister

from Naples, Fl

Comments about Boss ML-2 Metal Core Distortion Pedal:

Sick pedal non the less, but I'm rocking a Gibson les Paul Studio with a Fender non tube amp. This is a good pedal but I think if I had a Tube Amp it would sound much better. So I would say and do is save your pennies up for a tube amp and then start thinking about pedals. It will make a world of difference and I think you would be more stoked! but the pedal is quality product

I LOVE IT!!!!!

By Travis Priester

from Hammond, IN

Comments about Boss ML-2 Metal Core Distortion Pedal:

I love the Boss ML-2, you definitely get what you paid for. I have this pedal and a Digitech RP355 effects processor, I love them both, but I would have to say that the ML-2 has better bass and the tone is amazing. It just makes the guitar sound "fuller" it gives it that "oomph". You couldn't ask for a better deal. I would definitely recommend this pedal to anyone who wants to get the sound without paying an arm and a leg!!!!

Oh no, not again!

By Niko Vinters

from Canada

Comments about Boss ML-2 Metal Core Distortion Pedal:

Ok, I got this for christmas 3 months ago. After about a week it stopped working I went back to the store I got it from and they replaced it. About 3 months later the other one stopped working ( It's probably just my bad luck.). While it was working, it had a A LOT OF DISTORTION! It would be good for death metal (Lamb Of God, etc). Defenitely not for even rock. It never broke or anything it just stopped working probably just because of my lack of luck. It looks cool, pretty sturdy.

This pedal is awesome

By Elmer Chavez

from Bay area

Comments about Boss ML-2 Metal Core Distortion Pedal:

I don't consider myself an advanced player by any means but I was getting tired of using the Distortion on my amp. Like many players before me I bought a line 6 amp and although they're not The worst they are far from the best, but I'm a guitarist on a budget. I've heard great things for these Boss pedals so I decided to give them a shot. This one does not disappoint . The sound is distorted to a point where it is still clear. Every note and every strum sounds tight without being a burden to your tone. I highly recommend this pedal to all metal and rock fans.
