Would I get a good Metallica sound with this?

That pedal basically just sounds like a greyhound pissing into a treacle tin. I have a mate who used to use an MT2 straight into a PA speaker at band-practices, and it sounded hideous. It was made even worse by the fact that he never shut up about how great he thought it sounded.
I deeply regret the 6661 in my username. Siiiigh. Damn you, 14 year old me, you edgy little bastard.

I think its a decent pedal. Ok for low volume heavy distortion. But it needs a lot of tweaking and a great amp to sound good. definitely not worth the money

Yes we are. We all got together in our top secret volcano headquaters conspired against you.

In all seriousness, I'd just send it back and get the money back, if possible. If you want a half decent distortion pedal, look at the AMT Legend pedals, I've toyed with some of them in a store, and they all seem pretty good value for money.

The only good sound I ever got out of mine was an AM-radio type of effect. Everything else sounded ultra thin and way too fizzy (even on low gain settings).

I wouldn't recommend spending money on one, but since your grandma ordered it for you I'd spend some time with it and see what you can get out of it. Worst case you can send it back for something else (if the place/site takes returns).

I'd rather not send it back. It's a Christmas present. Do you guys have any clue to as what band's sound I can achieve?

I can understand that. I don't like sending gifts back either. The MT-2 will get you into Metallica territory, but it's better at like a "Kill Em All" tone rather than a Black Album or new Metallica tone. This pedal makes everything sound thin, so if you're looking for thick distortion this really isn't it. Think 80s metal, not modern metal.

Kill Em All - AJFA is that the range I can get?
Hi, you're better than me. Have a nice day!
#14
With a lot of tweaking it can sound not horrible, but it's still wayyyy to digital sounding to be any good at all. I use it mostly to colour my overdrive pedal, and even then super light on the distortion.

Yeah that's about what you'll get. Although the tone might not be as thick as you'd want for AJFA. But let's be serious, Hetfield layered the guitar tracks a million times on that album. Not many pedals/amps are going to come close to a thick tone like that

It's a secret volcano base, it's hard not to tell people about it.
Atleast the location of the volcano is still a mystery!

I used to have an MT-2 when I still played on a Crate solid-state combo. It was good for practice, but when I started gigging it was obvious it wasn't cutting it. This is what I ended up doing...

Guitar->Boss BD-2->MT-2->Boss GE-7-> Amp

Once I dialed it in, I got a great, thick tone. Not half bad for pedals and a cheap solid state. But it took an overdrive and an equalizer to get any use out of the MT-2 in a live setting.


What kind of amp are you playing it through, and do you have any other effects?
#19
I just recently sold my MT-2 after having it for a couple of years.

It's... possible to get a usable sound out of it. But it took me an entire week of tweaking to pull it off.

It should be alright, as long as you don't set high expectations for it.

Mine's ok, but I don't play metal....

That being said, I think it's a crap pedal if you want it to do what it says it will do...

surprising though is on Musician's friend, out of 653 reviews, it has 4.5 stars, outta 5. I use it for 80's and 90's stuff... the distortion is set at about 1/4, bass and mids up slightly, and treble turned down to about 1/4... I start with a clean sound on my amp and it works for me... It was free, so I use it... I'll get a better one..... someday...

It sounds terrible. Which is fine because save for Load, and some of the Black Album, Metallica sounds terrible too.

From clips ive heard, the mt2 can sound pretty awesome with the "diezel hifi mod" or something along those lines. If you want to keep it then mod it and it can soun pretty good
#24
You can send it to someone for modding; modifying it makes it an excellent distortion.

I liked the one I played with. Stock it's mediocre at best.

my old mt-2 had the mark humphrey SLO/Diezel mod. It didn't sound like a slo or any diezel ive heard, but it did sound considerably better than stock. It was only like $30 bucks for the mod too, that was like 4 years ago though.

I never said itll sound like a diezel or SLO, just that itll sound better than stock
#28
I know. It would be ridiculous to expect a pedal to sounds anything like either of those amps, especially considering what makes those amps sound like they do(trannies and filtering, amongst other things.) I had no qualms with the sound of though.

I just think it is kind of misleading for mark to have named the mod that since a slo and pretty much any amp from diezel sound nothing alike.

I'm not gonna mod it, that's money I don't feel like spending. I have to save for a bass stack.
Hi, you're better than me. Have a nice day!
#30
I had one back when i only had a bass amp to play through. I used it with a Gibson Faded Flying V and actually got some great Mega Deth tones (Symphony of Destruction) as well as a pretty much perfect Nightwish rhythm tone. I don't think they are as bad as people say, but they can take a pretty good while to dial in right.
#31
Well the important question is: Can I get an old school Metallica sound out of it with no mods.

@schecter guy: Would it give me the Youthanasia tone?
