The Heaviest BOSS Distortion Ever!

With its extreme gain, the ML-2 is the most potent and heavy distortion pedal ever created by BOSS. It easily delivers massive distortion and gain with heavy lows for playing Nu Metal, Grind Core, Industrial, Hard Core, or any genre that requires crushing sound. The ML-2's ferocious and biting tone will complement and cut through any blasting beats your rhythm section can create. If you're a metal maniac, the ML-2 from BOSS is your pedal!

BOSS ML-2 Features at a Glance:

  • Ultra-heavy distortion with sharp-edged attack for crushing metal riffs

  • Low control for heavy, low-frequency sound a la 7-string guitar or dropped tuning
  • High control for screaming, metallic tone
  • Road-tough BOSS metal construction
The BOSS ML-2 Metal Core is heaviness defined!

Freakin HEAVY!!!!

I am really digging this pedal!!! I play mainly heavy music...(Pantera, Disturbed, Korn, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer.....) So this pedal works great for me.....beyond great actually! Just sounds amazing!! Very easy to use and I have been able to dial in some really killer tones!

I ordered this bad boy from sweetwater and i was blown away. It has some of the crunchiest and gainiest distortion I've ever heard. I still have my stock pickups in my Ibanez Iceman and it still sounds killer! Pinch harmonics sound absolutely amazing and palm mutes are a huge wow.

This is Totally Metal

Very interesting sound this pedal gets. Very deep low sound, sounds a lot like the tones you hear in much of the newer metal music. I like the overall tone a little more than the Metal Zone however I wish that it had the same amount of controls like the adjustible mid-frequency the other pedal has. It also sounds like it has a limiter built in that makes for a bit of a squashed sound, but overall the pedal sounds amazing and was exactly what I was looking for.
