Hey All,

Was Just Wondering If Someone Could Tell Me What The Metal Zone Sounds Like... I Am Going To Buy 1 Soon, Just Wanted To Know How Versatile It Is And The Range Of Sounds It Can Produce? Just General Feedback Would Be Great!

Thanks Alot

Joe

It sounds like crap.

It's not in the least bit versatile...it's noisy, thin and weak sounding.

Rubbish.

It's a horrid pedal, nasty in all ways. Fizzy, noisy, FAR too much high end and it doesn't even crunch well.

Avoid.

The distortion on it is terrible no matter the eq settings. Not to mention that the Mid Freq that it includes can be very confusing to people who don't know much about it.
Get something like a Ds-1 if your set on boss, But A Metal-Muff would probably do you better. Also I'd like to suggest an Ibanez Tube King. I have one and it does it for me for all genres.
Quote by barden1069
A "tubescreamer" is a person paid by a guitarist to stand behind the amp and scream at the tubes. This terrifies the tubes into overdriving and delivers a thick, harmonic-rich tone.

I agree with everyone that have said it sounds awful. Much better pedals for less money. The thing I dislike most about it is that the highs are ear-piercingly shrill, and well it just doesn't sound good.

I Had The Boss MT-2 Before, It Was Good To Cover Up A ****ty Distortion Sound From A Solid State Amp, But When I Got My New Amp I felt I Would Be Kinda Useless.

I used to think it was pretty br00tal, but that's when I had an untrained ear >.>

Get an EHX metal muff instead.

It can really vary between your amp settings. If you plan on using it, be prepared to use either your amp or an external EQ pedal to boost your mids or else it will give you an extremely tinny and cold distortion. Some people like that, but I prefer my mids. On the other hand, I used to use an amp (johnson jt50 mirage) that tended towards too much mids, to the point that everything was muddy, but when I used the MT-2 it sounded great. If it interacts well with your amp, it's a really versatile pedal that can do tons of different tones and sound pretty good. If your amp doesn't play nice, like many, it will sound like a tin can of ass. Just make sure you try it out on your amp first.

It sounded "hXc" when I first got it and it was my very first pedal.
I slowly realised what a big mistake I made.

Please listen to this:

DON'T WASTE CASH ON DISTORTION PEDALS AND SAVE UP FOR A TUBE AMP.

Seriously just play with the clean tone or whatever you've got for now and buy an amp with good distortion later on.

I hope that you will listen to my words.

You mostly likely got a 'good' sound because you have no ear for tone. It probably sounds crap to everyone else.

why must we argue?
im not saying the pedal is god and its not
a tube amp or anything.
im just saying for a distortion pedal,its pretty good.
and i CAN get good crap out of it.
you just got to mess around with it.

Have it regret buying it, not good for the money, i would personally recomend a high gain tube amp, it may take a long time to save up for its worth it.

imo the Electro-Harmonix Metal Muff is the best of the metal distortion pedals (though, i am a bit of an EHX fanboy), but it all really depends on your amp. A general rule, i'd say, is if you don't like your amps tone on its own, you're not gonna like it no matter how many pedals you use.
