The "Metal Zone" is a hilarious concept, right? Step on this pedal and then BOOM! You're in the Metal Zone. But all jokes aside, this pedal has become absolutely iconic. When it was released in 1991, it offered over-the-top distortion—new levels of gain that weren't accessible with any of the pedals that came before.
Perhaps the most interesting detail of the MT-2 is the versatility it provides for shaping the mid-range. You can access huge, punchy mids or even scoop the mid range out altogether. With a parametric control that sets the specific frequency range, there's endless flexibility. This detail caused the Metal Zone to alter the trajectory of guitar tone in various metal sub-genres.
This 2004 Boss MT-2 Metal Zone is in decent cosmetic condition, but the front right corner is scuffed. There is also velcro on the bottom. It functions 100% as it should, and it sounds fantastic. If you need an ultra-saturated sound, the MT-2 will get it done! Enter the Metal Zone—you won't regret it.
