Boss MD-2 Mega Distortion Pedal
In Stock!

There's a reason they called it the "Mega Distortion" pedal. . .

Every guitarist we've seen come in contact with the MD-2 has been blown away. Some go so far as to say it's BOSS's best distortion pedal ever. We know that's a bold statement, but just wait until you hear it! It delivers distortion so nasty, gnarly, and just plain vicious that it'll leave permanent psychological scars.

BOSS MD-2 Mega Distortion Pedal Features at a Glance:

  • Gain boost circuit creates huge distortion and sustain regardless of level

  • New bottom control for bottom-heavy distortion matched to 7 string guitars

EXCELLENT PEDAL

Got my Boss MD-2 yesterday! Sweetwater is known for fast delivery! 2 days! I replaced my Boss Blues Driver with this pedal! I finally got the sound that I was hearing in my head! Played my Hendrix signature white start and IMMEDIATLY heard that sweet Hendrix distorted, overdriven tone! A power stack pedal and Monterrey pedal on the vibe channel in the chain with the MD-2 was a little piece of heaven!!! Played through a Marshall DSL40C on the clean channel. Tone knob at 1 o'clock, bottom knob at 2 o'clock, distortion knob at 1-2 o'clock, overdrive knob at 1-2 o'clock and you're COOKING with gas and electric!!! Played for 2 hours straight!! I play blues, blues-rock, hard rock, R&B, jazz and R&B Gospel, no metal. With tweaking it probably could play metal if that's your thing. Do yourself a favor and pick-up one of these badd boys! Israel Foster hooked me up and gives great service at Sweetwater! I have a drawer full of pedals that couldn't cut the mustard but I expect this pedal to be a permanent member of my pedalboard! ROCK ON PEOPLE!!!

Boss MD-2 mega distortion

This pedal has so much drive and pressure created inside it. that plugged into a fender amp I turn the level knob to like one. With the distortion and drive turned down to about one also. WIth my guitar on 3 I get so much power and sweet overdrive. I have owned the tube screamer and every other overdrive and distortion pedal out there. including the big muff which is a toy next to this pedal. With this pedal with it's potential turned almost all the way down blows away other distortion pedals no problem. And if I turn my guitar up to six or seven suddenly it sounds like zz top, turn up the drive and now it sounds like Steve Vai with overtones screaming then you can go over the top with this sonic futuristic Nuclear battle with overdrive and distortion over the top with screaming like a angry dragon. This pedal is one of the few pedals I have bought and kept. Most pedals are limiting and dirty. this one is amazing. I have found that often less is more with this pedal. And if you want to sound like a screaming dragon it is right at you fingertips.

Only Distortion Pedal I've liked

I've had this for nearly 10 years with heavy use and I'm only now buying a backup. So along with the incredible sound, its also very well constructed (at least it was 10 years ago). This is actually the first distortion pedal that I ever played and nothing has ever matched it since. This is: Thick. Punchy. Smooth. Warm. Modern. This is not: Noisy Thin Harsh Sharp

One of the best

This pedal is fantastic. Lots of versatility and warm, heavy distortion. I have tried most of the "usual suspects" and in my opinion this is one of the very best. When you consider the great price point I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better pedal. Highly recommended.

BOSS MD-2 MEGA DISTORTION

I'M IN THE MIDDLE OF RECORDING A DOUBLE ALBUM IN A MAJOR STUDIO, I'VE USED BOSS PEDALS FOR MANY YEARS AND NEVER HAD ONE FAIL. AS A DISTORTION THE METAL CORE WAS TOO BRASH UNTIL I COUPLED IT WITH A BOSS ACTIVE DISTORTION. THEN I NEEDED A TOTALLY DIFFERENT COLOR OF SOUND FOR WHAT I WAS DOING, AND SWAPPED OUT THE METAL CORE & PUT A BOSS MEGA DISTORTION BEFORE THE ADAPTIVE DISTORTION IN MY SIGNAL CHAIN FOLLOWED BY 450 MILLISECONDS OF DELAY & A TOUCH OF CHORUS FROM A LINE 6 FROM SWEETWATER AND I GOT THE TONE I WAS AFTER. YOU ALSO WANT TO PLAY MORE WHEN YOU SOUND GOOD ! I'M BACK IN THE STUDIO IN TWO DAYS AND BOSS WAY HUGE & CRY BABY IS THROUGHOUT MY PEDAL BOARD ALL FROM SWEETWATER.
