by Jeff from FloridaI do not belong in a band, or perform for a living. Music is a hobby of mine, and I do have some nice toys. I bought this pedal because I purchased a 15 watt tube amp that created wonderful clean tone... read more [+]s, but did not do distortion very well. I plugged this baby in, and wow! I was able to get some of my favorite tones out of it right away. I suppose this pedal will react different with other equipment, but dispite what some people have said, this pedal is very versatile. You can get a Led Zeppelin sound, AC/DC, Judas Priest, and many other tones. Now my little tube amp is able to give me the best of both worlds, clean and dirty, and sounds better than my 75 watt solid state amp. close [-]

Music Background: Play Piano and Guitar,
by Brian from Albuquerque , New MexicoMetal Zone is my favorite distortion pedal. i own many and love them all, But the Metal zone has been used on countless Metal records, from Whitesnake to Cannibal Corpse. Entombed used a early one ... read more [+]similar on Left Hand Path. Toxic holocaust uses it. So many to list. I swear by mine. It gives awesome sounds from Fuzz to flat out high gain death metal! There are new ones coming out all the time. But i try them and i miss the old school thrash metal attack sound i can get from the MT2. It can get high gain but sometimes i want to back off and play old metal records, And there's hundred's!!! MT2 can do this with it's great equalizer built in. It Is easy to dial in , simple and almosy every distortion pedal you hear is based off of the MT2. This is a Legendary Pedal. close [-]

BEST DISTORTION PEDAL EVER...
by Mr. Brooke Shields [no relation] from NYCI've owned many different types of distortions over the years but this is the ONE. I've bought many over the years. It's like yr favorite album. The most intense distortion and the crunch is the best.... read more [+] The EQs built in are fantastic too. I can't even go back to any other distortions. close [-]

by Richie from Palmyra, PAI mostly use preamp distortion, but needed an actual distortion box sound for a few songs in a live set and chose this after trying a bunch of pedals. Most pedals sounded more like toys with one basic... read more [+] sound to me compared to this. I know that some people prefer other sounds, but this gives you a range of quality choices. Boss always seems to give you something that takes you farther and they did it again with this pedal. It's diverse. It's definitely a solid workhorse. The MT-2 gets some nice sounding distortions and the EQ gives you a great range of sounds and control. The EQ really put this over the top for me. The pedal can be adjusted for use as a booster pedal too. It's hard to choose a distortion pedal without hearing them all, but if you're trying a web only selection, I'll say that this is definitely among the best and it gets sounds from 70's rock and metal to some of the heavier stuff that's on the radio now. If you're playing mostly blues, there are better choices, but for hard rock, metal or some sweet lead sounds in anything from pop to a range of heavy styles, this is one of the best if not THE best, depending on your situation. Nice hard rock/ metal rythm sounds too. Even though it's called Metal Zone, it covers more ground than just metal. It sounds extra cool on lead guitars combined with a little delay and I've used it to add a small amount of EQ and distortion while recording a bass track too. close [-]
