I've heard real bad things about that pedal, but try it anyways, along with a Boss DS-1 and Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi.

Dude, what's the use of getting that peDal when your amp sucks. It will barely make a difference. Save up for a serious amp and afterward buy as much peDals as you want.

And yes, peDal is with a "D".

if anything Boss pedals are the best in the market, Steve Vai and Marty Friedman use nothing BUT...the rest are considerd mere child toys compared to Boss. So it IS an investment if you want to get it. BUt i agree to get a better Amp.
I am Cool Thanks for listening.

Get the pedal. You'll like it. Trust me. I've been through it. Crappy start up gear. Bad amp. Bought this pedal. Loved it, then got a good TUBE amp and Loved it even more. It is rock solid and has the best EQ control of any pedal. Will it sound good NO. Will it sound good to You? You betcha. Get the pedal, it's a great investment. Don't get a lower Dist. Pedal or it will sound really bad w/ your small amp i.e. Big Muff.

If you have a tube amp, the MT-2 is pretty much worthless. To TS, invest in a new amp and maybe get an EQ?

Sometimes I don't understand forums. It's all personal preference. This post surprized me because every review I've ever read about the BOSS MT-2 was positive, and then I read this. I personally love this pedal...while others tell you it sucks. So what does that tell you?...go out and try the pedal for yourself, mess with the eq, try it through different amps, and if YOU like, buy it! It doesn't matter where you go, some people love it, others hate it...but in the end it's up to you.

Not on UG. Here everything sucks or rules and very rarely do you see the phrase "in my opinion".

...eh? so your saying a $100 boss pedal DOMINATES a nice botique (sp?) pedal?

I wont go as far as to say boss beats everything, but some of the peTals aren't bad. DD-6 for example. but there is so many better brands, if you're willing to shell out the cash.

And TS, don't get a metal zone. for the love of god, don't get a metal zone.

Wrong:
a) if they are so good, why do you think that Keeley and Analogman get such good business modding them?
b) They are not the best, they are a moderate quality, reliable brand available at a reasonably low price.
c) Steve Vai uses 1 Boss pedal, which he uses as a solo boost, not as his main distortion. This pedal is soon to be replaced by a custom pedal built for him by Ibanez.

In my opinion,,
The MT-2 was a lot more relavent 10-15 years ago. You could spend $200 on a Vox V>TRNX AT-30 an get distortion just as sick, a great lower-middle amp packed w/ effects!

The Metal pedals seem obsolete due to amp modeling, hybrids, or most metal players who use tube amps.

Maximize your gear. $88 will get you in (nearly) several used mini pedal boards. At your age-get a Behringer V-amp. It's a POD XT w/ more features. $100. It really does sound great and comes with a floor pedal and case. Plus a pile of distortons and fx, and headphone jack for your old man.

I had a V-amp 2 (basically the same thing) when I was just starting out, and it helped me a lot finding out about which effects are which, which I liked, what kind of sound I was after, etc. Sure, the tone of it is not much to brag about, but there is nothing wrong with the versatility.
