What's better for Death metal deathcore, low tuning dropped c, b, a??
It's a Boss MT-2, not ML-2. And I don't play deathcore, but I really like the metal zone for other kinds of metal. The Metal Core is a bit too "loose" in it's distortion (or muddy if you like). The MT-2 is alot tighter. There's demos on the boss website though.
They are awful sounding pedals. Serisouly, dont buy either.
I used to have a Metal Zone and I was satisfied with it for a while, but the tone began driving me nuts so I traded it in for a Boss MD-2 Mega Distortion. While it isn't perfect, it produces a lot more low end than the Metal Zone. The MT-2 was just too "tinny" sounding... I could never get it to be ballsy enough. I don't have any experience with the Metal Core though so I can't really comment on it.
Get a Danelectro Cool Cat Metal II instead. Seriously, I'm not kidding. It's about 1/5 the price and it's quite similar to the EHX Metal Muff.
nothing really touches the metal muff, maybe a smart people factory - red threat, its a sick distortion pedal
