Just picked this up off CraigsList for a cool $30.

Pulled it open a minute ago and I can't really tell which mod its got (I believe it's just the basic MT-2 mod) but it does have the OPA2134PA chip. I haven't even bothered plugging this thing in yet. I wanted to share with UG first.

Anyway, pics!

I don't think the dude knew what he had.

I've played with this one for a bit now and so far it's one of the bestest distortion pedals I've used. It blows away the stock MT-2 and even monsters most of the much more expensive stuff I've used. This one's taking the crown for best CL find in the past month.

Edit: I'd post clips but all I've got to record with is a Rock Band mic. Woe is me.

My recordings always clip really badly if I play too loudly.

I imagine my problem is just that I've got no idea how to set up Audacity.

I do



Happy new pedal day! I used to love my old MT for nasty thrash/fuzz tones. I kinda miss it in all actuality..

And I think with the RB mics it's all about position... I've recorded quite a few loud clips that only have slight clipping

Maybe I'll have to back the mic off a little and see how that goes. I was originally just worried that the distance between driver and mic would cause a huge volume reduction. If that's the case I'll just have to adjust my playing - I suppose

That's good to hear. Unless you meant Keeley > Monte Allums.

Nice, I haven't really gotten to play too much with anything Keeley so I'm kinda in the dark.

So I got to A/B this thing with a stock MT-2 today. Obviously the MA pedal is going to be better, I'm just blown away by how much better this thing is.

I'm playing into a 100W SS Fender Performer combo right now and can't believe what this pedal can do. The harmonic overtones are rich and usable while the range of available tones is just phenomenal. I know its still not going to be everyone's cup of tea as it's still a Boss pedal (and worse, an MT-2) but it definitely changed the way I look at things.

My next pedal is going to be a DS-1 with an MA Rectifier Tri-Gain mod.
