Bought one of these new..wasn't very crazy about it to be quite honest with you.Too crunchy for my taste,everyone has different styles,etc.I played it through my Carvin Legacy Amp,definitely too crunchy.Great for hardcore metal heads.I do alot of lead solos so I use a Tube screamer TS-808 over the lead channel on the amp.Very warm,natural and not too muddy.For my Distortion I simply use a BOSS DS-1.Dont get me wrong,its a great pedal,just not for my type of music.Hope this helps.

Boss Metal Zone

By DonKraZy06

from Hamilton, OH

Comments about Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal:

This is a great addition to any metal guitarists effect chain. I've used other distortion pedals before and the Boss MT-2 Metal Zone one is my favorite. I have an Ibanez RG-7420 7-string and it sounds great with this. The parametric EQ for the mids lets me get just the sound I want. Other distortion pedals can get you the same sound but cost three times as much. The only downside is the slighly loud noise floor it produces, but a noise gate fixes that right up. I definately recommend this for any heavy style guitarist.

Still a great pedal

By hightechandyman

from West Covina, CA

Comments about Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal:

I've had my Metal Zone for about four years now. I bought it used at a swapmeet from a burnt out metalhead. It was obviously well used. It still works perfectly today. With four knobs, it takes a little practice to use. Great metal sound as the name implies, maybe not for you sick death guys. Has great tone, to me, the best feature. Yes, perfect balance of tone and gain. Digitech has pedals that emulate the Metal Zone, that says alot man. My only complaint is how old it is verses the price. Still worth it though, Boss still makes the best boxes. I recommend this to any metalhead that can appreciate good tone. The ladies will also notice you more, I got married soon after I got mine. Just in time cause my hair is thining out, must be from all the high voltage metal.

This pedal ROCKS!

By Fuzzball

from Ida, MI

Comments about Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal:

If you want to rock this is what you crave. This pedal will give you that high gain that you crave. Unlike some distortion pedals this one sounds more full (more like a tube effect unit). You will be able to get incredible sustain with this unit so be prepared to break out a solo. The pedal should enable you to get good mids, and impressive lows. This unit is also built Boss tough so it should handle the abuse of the road. So if you want to rock or shred metal this is what you want.

Sounds Awesome!

By Mateo

from Boise, ID

Comments about Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal:

I bought this Metal Zone pedal shortly after buying my first guitar and amp, and it has been fun ever since. There are quite a variety of settings you can play with. My favorite is cancelling out the mids to sound like Dimebag (sorta :D). With the added reverb from my amp, I can emulate alot of bands. It's fun to show off with :D

By Kevin C

Comments about Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal:

This pedal is an amazing pedal if you want to get a heavy metallica sound. I recommend this for any hard rock/heavy metal guitar player because of its clear tone, and great distortion.

Most metalist pedal ever!!

By Jesus Hardwick

from Sacramento, ca

Comments about Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal:

When I got this pedal I was blown away on how great it sounded. If you are reading this and you want metal core..well SCREW THAT! This is the sickest sounding pedal you would ever find. Plus Boss makes very high quality pedals and each have a 5 year parts warranty on them. Buy this...NOW!!

Awesome pedal

By brandon mcduffie

from lakeland,fl

Comments about Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal:

This pedal is pretty unbeatable. it has 5 tone knobs that let you do death core to cream. it really make the cheapest guitar or amp sound great! boss did a great job on this one. the only complaint i have is that the sound is very trebly, so sometimes it is unclear because the gain is so high. after a while i bought a Marshall cabinet so i use this pedal a bit less now but its great for a metal guitarist on a budget.

BOSS MT-2

By Jarvis B.

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal:

After having this item purchased for 6 months, I have to say you can get a whole bunch of different sounds. You can get a tone from thrash metal bands like "Trivium", to Amazing lead tones like "Avenged Sevenfold". This is a must for anybody who is on a budget and needs a buzz as well as thick tones to their guitar riffs.

Good, but Situational.

By Noah

from Michigan

Comments about Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal:

This pedal is a very good sounding distortion. Although, that's simply what it is: distortion. The one thing that one would need to know before buying is that the distortion in this pedal is HOT. Even on the lowest possible setting, the sound that this pedal produces is extremely overdriven. This is NOT a pedal to get if you want a sort of lightly-overdriven sound. This is a BIG MEAN DISTORTION MACHINE. Think death metal. The build quality of this pedal is also very nice. It's extremely solid-feeling. Will easily take a beating and keep working.

Very Solid Addition!

By Joel the Pole, i dont know!

See all my reviews

Pros

  • Heavy Distortion
  • High sustain
  • Looks nice
  • Solidly built

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Metal

    Comments about Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal:

    Has a very long sustain, heavy distorted sound which is great for chugging and heavy riffs, if you tune the settings just right it can be great for solo's but the distortion can be slightly hard to keep clean because it has alot of bass and distortion. Overall this is a great pedal if you play low tuned, metal type music. Boss is of course always a solid choice for pedals (after all they are the original Marshall sound!) They are solid, high quality, long lasting pedals worth every penny.

    WOAH!!!!

    By SquierFromHell

    from Long Island, NY

    Comments about Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal:

    The MT-2 is a KILLER PEDAL!!!! I've played around with a few and wasn't reallt satisfied...then I found this!!!!!! It's one of the best pedals for the price. If I plug this aby into my Dean ML then I can get perfect heavy metal tones, but if I plug my Stratocaster in I can play oldies and brittish rock!!! It comes with a refrence sheet for how to set the knobs for diffrent music styles, but you should tweak it to fit the guitar and amp. this gets a 10-10 in my book!!

    By Tanner

    from Dexter, MO

    Comments about Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal:

    The BOSS Metal Zone MT-2 is an amzing ditortion pedal for anyone wanting to acheive a great sound. I used a Fender FM 210R 2x10" 65 Watt Guitar Combo Amp and i used my Fender 56 Strat NOS Electric Guitar with the pedal. I got a lot of sounds like British rock, also heavey metal and grunge ( Nirvana,Alice in Chains) All togeter this pedal is one of the greatest products on the market.

    By jacktastesgood

    from San Deigo, CA

    Comments about Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal:

    I bought this pedal used 2 years ago and since then i have used it for recording, gigs, and writing music. this pedal still has the best distortion out of every pedal i've tried. Its great for all types of rock and metal because it has so many different sounds waiting to be used, and it is great for its price.

    Meh

    By Gorilla Fingers

    from Where ever I fall asleep at night

    Comments about Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal:

    Well I fist used this pedal, for some reason I loved it. I bought one of my own shortly thereafter. And the more I try to get a good sound out of it the worse it sounds! You can't mix it with natural amp overdrive too! Go with a Tube Screamer. Much better sound.

    Good 4 Hard Rock

    By scheckter man

    from St. Louis, MO

    Comments about Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal:

    I got this pedal about a year ago for my birthday and i've been using it very frequently ever since. It has the perfect amount of gain 4 bands like ACDC and Motley crew. You can change the sound very easily as well. The EQ is amazing. I have noticed it could use more gain for metal but it definately delivers the treble. This is overall a great pedal. Definately consider buying it for the amazing price if your into classic or hard rock.

    Metal Pedal for the Violin

    By Arkady

    from Pittsburgh, PA

    Comments about Boss MT-2 Metal Zone Effects Pedal:

    I play electric violin and love how this pedal sounds with it. I turns my little violin into a mad beast. The lows and mids of the violin sound amazing, but the highs can screech a bit. What I love most is though is how it gives me a metal bite without killing that fact that I'm playing a violin. It also holds up to a lot of abuse, which other pedals sometimes can't do. Of all the pedals I've played with, this is absolutely my favorite.

    Great distortion pedal. As many others said, there are so many different sounds you can get from this. No doubt, worth the extra money over Boss's regular distortion pedal.
