Metal Madness!

I love this pedal. We are talking pure metal madness here! With the EQ on board allowing adjustments to high, low, mid freq and mids the tonal possibilities are infinite! I especially liked the fact that even minor adjustments actually made a tone difference!The gain is monster yet dead quiet when not being played! I got it home and was tweaking away for two hours just smilin' large! If you are looking for a solid metal tone this is your pedal! Go out & Get it!

Metal sound

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I guess this is the best pedal for metal with tons of distortion. I simply use it to play metal, which is about the only thing it's good for.

The pedal has a 3 band EQ, with two dials available for adjusting the mids (one for boosting/cutting the frequency you set using the other knob, which is to set the frequency of the the middle range). There is also level and distortion dials. The knobs for the High and Low frequencies have a variable range from -15dB to +15dB, and the Middle frequency has a range of 200Hz to 5Khz.

I have not found the pedal to be amazingly noisy, though turning the distortion all the way and not using humbuckers you would probably find it to be quite irritating. I have found that you can get a good strong sound out of it but there is a lot of tweaking to be done to make this, otherwise the sounds can be somewhat tinny.

Settings I use mostly are:

Agressive Metal
LEVEL 12:00
HIGH 3:00
LOW 5:00
MID-FREQUENCY 4:00
MID 4:00
DIST 11:00

Professional distrshn for a professional musician.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I have long been using a Boss MT-2. In this pedal is very good sound and six-band equalizer. You can play heavy metal and light rock. The main thing that would grow out of the hands of the right place. I bought one this to a friend. He saw I had this pedal, listening to her and ordered the same to me. Robust housing of the pedal, protects it from falls and bruises. Good about themselves and live shows, virtually no problems because it has a very wide equalizer. I advise anyone who does not know what he wants to distortion.

Boss MT-2 Distortion Guitar Effect Pedal Well Worth It

Wading through the myriad of pedals and reviews of pedals this one seem to rise to the top in terms of highest star reviews for the price. These pedal things are kind of like amps and pickups, everyone is going to have their own opinion and it wont be necessarily right or wrong. All of us perceive sound differently so its what ever sounds good to you, unfortunately if you buy it off ebay you would have to spend money before you can hear it. You wont go wrong buying this pedal, for the money it is more than worth it. It has a wide range of controls for various types of music but leans a little towards grunge Nirvana,Bush,creed, Pearl Jam ish but can also do 80'ish AC/DC,Metallica Iron Maiden kind of style also. Bottom line is it is a very universal pedal and can be adjusted to whatever style you desire.

A classic all time favorite, can't go wrong with this unit.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Having been in music retail for a number of years, and also a guitar player, it is my opinion that this pedal is the definitive metal pedal. The original Metal Zone was better, arguably, but the MT-2 is a very close second to that. When I was working in the music store, we could not keep these on the shelf, they were so much in demand. There are myriad technical characteristics which could be bantered about as far as frequency response, signal to noise, etc. All I know is, it has guts, and when you play through it it is one awesome sounding distortion. There are probably similar pedals out on the market, but this would be my choice. I also have been playing guitar for 40 years and have seen a lot of gear, but this pedal always comes out on the top of my list. If you want your guitar to shred, get this, you will not be sorry.

DON'T HESITATE

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This pedal is awesome! You can fine tune the type of distortion you want more than the BOSS DS-1. If you love playing metal or hard rock, get this!

excellent construction of unit, excellent quality in performance

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

MT 2 though not necessarily thought of, as a versatile pedal, it does have that going for it. Not only is it sought after, and used as one of the best distortion pedals, it also can be used as an excellent boost for sustain and overdrive.

Very clean, fast delivery, and great sound. Thanks!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Got the product right away and it's in great shape. This has got to be the best sounding distortion of any of the pedals I've used. You can set it up with tone controls to give a soft buzz to take all the way up to a super sharp crunch. The MT-2 is a must for every guitarist serious about distortion effects.
