^hehh...those things are $190 bucks, IF you can find one.

Threadstarter, a metal muff will probably be your best bet.

The MT-2 doesn't suck. He asked that if we suggest a pedal explain why we think its good. not a "Metal muff ownz all. MT-2 sucks" post.

the MT-2 i have and i can get decent sounds out of it. A lot of people don't like it because its hard to get a decent sound out of but all it takes is some alone time with it. Its built pretty solid (It is a boss after all) and after getting my settings right it sounds very good.

Thing is i wouldn't recommend it without trying it out first. Go to your local music store and try a long line of pedals and see what you like more.

Dime would not have used that pedal . He used Randalls and Krank amps.

well I have a MT-2 also. The distortion is thin and wirey...which is a good way of explaining it I think. It kills my tone, someone also reffered to it as sound like a bunch of bee's in a tin can...

So I think its a peice of ****, and I tried to mod it...but thats a different story...

But most people here will tell you a metal muff... I was asking this same question a while back, and I got the same responses... I got the metal muff too, I love it.

But like someone said above this question gets asked so many times, doesnt matter who asks it, always get the same repsonse...

...He was dead before the pedal existed. I'm not kidding.


All of his gain came from Randall Warheads and some other randalls.

You can get some similar sounds to Pantera with the MT-2, but I honestly wouldnt recommend it. As many other people say, its very thin, weak and smooth. I'd go with a metal muff.

save yourself and go with a metal muff. mt-2 is, like everyone has said so far, thin and very hard to get good sounds out of it. i had it for a year and i hated it... metal muff on the other hand has a very thick, chunky sound and also enough distortion for your most metal pleasures.

Turn down the level (to around 9 o'clock) and work your way from there.

You don't need a distortion pedal if you own a decent tube amp. So to help you better, what is your current set up?


ps. Piece of advice, dont fall for all this metal pedal nonsense. From my own experience, it only costs you money and you keep searching for that great metal tone. I really wonder what amps all these metal muff lovers have.

It's gotta be the Line 6 Uber Metal. You don't even need to put it on the Insane setting and it's brutal as hell.
