Boss Metal Zone Reviews
At new you can find these pedals right at around $99. Way too much money for the sound that this thing makes. It really is a terrible sounding pedal no question about it. I would get a BLackstar distortion pedal if you need something that is over the top but also sounds good to listen to. [read more on Audiofanzine]iamqman rated this unit on 2011-07-28.
All in all I feel that the Boss MT2 is a good pedal for someone on a budget who is looking for a classic metal sound. It's not recommended for someone who knows great tube amp tone, because it will almost certainly fall short, but for a sub $100 pedal it does an okay job at capturing a slice of molten metal tone.

This pedal definitely has a bad reputation among guitarists and the online music community. To be fair, a lot of this has to do with beginners who run it through cheap digital amps that don't take pedals well at all. But that aside, its not the best pedal out there. It is definitely no replacement for a good high gain channel. This was the... [read more on Audiofanzine]denied rated this unit on 2011-04-29.
Aside from the trick of using this pedal as an EQ to boost the amp, I really can't recommend this at all. It sounds way too buzzy and fizzy to be of any real use. Most people who buy these are beginners who have no clue what they're getting themselves into. What's worse is they tend to run these things through solid state amps which just squa...

This pedal is ok at best. There isn't much you can do to dial out the insane amount of treble present in the sound. THAT is it's big downfall. It's harsh and muddy. For $99, there are many better options for a metal pedal than this. $99 is far too much for what it is. If you wanna sound like a buzz saw, this is the pedal for you. If you wanna so...

As stated earlier, the only negative I can write about this unit is the average distortion tone and nasally character of the pedal. But the excellent eq controls and the fact that there are cheap modifications available make it a great pedal in my book. It's been around for many years, and is the standard for heavy metal in a pedal. Buy one ... [read more on Audiofanzine]glassjaw7 rated this unit on 2011-03-16.
I've been using the Boss MT-2 Metal Zone for about three years and while it is a good sounding pedal with a decent amount of parameters, I don't use it very often simply because I don't play the type of music that this pedal is intended for anymore. The price of this pedal makes it a very attractive option and I would encourage those interested ... [read more on Audiofanzine]moosers rated this unit on 2009-05-14.
