BOSS's Million-selling High-gain Distortion Turns 30

Back in 1991, BOSS unleashed the now-controversial Metal Zone — the stompbox that housed more over-the-top high-gain distortion than any competing product at the time. The BOSS 30th Anniversary Metal Zone celebrates three decades of this iconic pedalboard classic, boasting the same dial-stage gain circuit along with an eye-grabbing grayscale color scheme that's guaranteed to attract attention. You also get the original pedal's oft-abused 3-band semi-parametric EQ, which provides ±15dB of boost or cut for surgical sonic sculpting. The BOSS Metal Zone is a classic — just about every budding metal guitarist has plugged one of these distortion pedals into a solid-state practice amp, dimed the gain, and massacred "Smoke on the Water." That said, this hyper-aggressive stomp continues to make its way onto countless pro-level pedalboards as well. If you're aiming for insane, ultra-saturated high-gain tones, there's nothing else like the Metal Zone.

Ultra-powerful 3-band semi-parametric EQ

The BOSS Metal Zone stimulates a lot of heated back and forth on the interwebs. But here's the truth: the Metal Zone is a solid-sounding distortion box, provided you use intelligent gain and EQ settings. Speaking of EQ, this pedal’s super-powerful semi-parametric EQ features +/-15dB of boost or cut, which can be abused — grossly abused. Scooping your mids by -15dB does not sound like "Master of Puppets" and cranking your highs by +15dB is only good for re-creating the sound of angry hornets. Remember, subtlety is the key. With conservative settings, the Metal Zone can really deliver the goods.

    BOSS guitar pedals: rugged, reliable, more than 10,000,000 sold

    More than 10,000,000 BOSS guitar and bass effects pedals have been sold to players worldwide, including such top players as Yngie Malmsteen, Dave Navarro, John Petrucci, Marty Friedman, Steve Vai, and Joe Satriani. You've also no doubt heard BOSS pedals recorded and onstage beneath the feet of bands of all genres, including Muse, The Killers, and Silversun Pickups. The reason for the success is clear: not only do BOSS effects pedals sound great - but they're also built like tanks and designed with serious use in mind. Each BOSS pedal is housed in a stomp-ready metal box and features a rubberized stomp area and base, to help safeguard against slipping. So, whether you're a fresh-out-of-the-gate beginner, an axe-veteran designing your dream pedalboard, or anywhere in between, you can depend on BOSS's proven line of pedals to craft your tone.

    What BOSS Says...

    Introduced way back in 1991, the iconic MT-2 Metal Zone remains the king of high-gain distortion stomps for guitarists around the world, with over one million sold and counting. Its thick, saturated sound is perfectly suited for metal styles and is also great for playing heavy rhythms and soaring solos in other genres. With incredibly wide tone-shaping range and ultra-smooth sustain, the multifaceted MT-2 brings an array of rich distortion voices to any musical setting.

    Step into the Metal Zone

    The MT-2 is BOSS’s second most popular drive pedal ever, after the DS-1 Distortion. A key to its enduring success is the ability to achieve dense, heavy crunch and singing sustain at any volume, providing an instantly inspiring experience for players at every skill level. And thanks to its smooth character and active EQ with semi-parametric midrange, the MT-2 works well with all types of guitar amplifiers, including clean “pedal platform” amps.

    Innovative Dual-Stage Gain Circuit

    Under the hood, the MT-2 employs an innovative analog circuit design to realize its rich, heavy voice. Two gain stages are configured in series, with the first stage providing mid-focused clarity that feeds the second stage’s more aggressive character. Carefully tuned pre- and post-distortion filtering (seven total stages) ensures that the tone is tight and well-defined at every setting, with no mud or flub whatsoever.

    Shapeshifter

    The MT-2’s advanced tone shaping goes far beyond the capabilities of most analog drive pedals, letting you dial in everything from chugging, mid-scooped rhythm mayhem to bold, cutting sounds that poke through the densest mixes. Post-distortion Low, Middle, and High knobs offer +15 dB cut or boost to perfectly match your guitar and amp type or craft entirely new tones. The midrange is the heart of every guitar’s voice, and the MT-2 provides a variable control to set the frequency in this critical band anywhere from 200 Hz to 5 kHz.
