Boss MD-2

By

Comments about Boss MD-2 Mega Distortion Pedal:

This is a great pedal for any kind of Rock or Metal.
I had this pedal for 2 years and it never broke or messed up once.
The Boost really helps and the it has a nice variety of sounds you can get from it.
It has no feedback problems at all, and it is overall a great distortion pedal.
I play mostly Punk, and it's perfect for it.
I gave it a 9/10 because it doesn't have true bypass, but it doesn't really for sound wise.
I highly recommend this if you want a great sounding distortion pedal.

Boss mega distortion

Comments about Boss MD-2 Mega Distortion Pedal:

Been playing for 35 yrs, I use this into a 18 watt tube Marshall combo. Sounds great! The only thing I would like it to have is a mid range control but that's not a deal breaker at all. I use a tube screamer in front of it for solos.

Comments about Boss MD-2 Mega Distortion Pedal:

I bought this a little over a year ago when my band was starting up. I needed a pedal that allowed more than simple distortion, because I hate that much grit, and I needed a pedal with great overdrive. I was initially thinking of buying the BOSS OD-3 Overdrive pedal, but the store was out of them. Not wanting to wait, and on my way to band practice that day, I took a long hard look at all the pedals the store had to offer. The MD-2 pedal stood out as a pedal that would give me the overdrive I needed, and also give me the option of adding distortion overtop.

Respectable...

Comments about Boss MD-2 Mega Distortion Pedal:

Two weeks ago I went into my local guitar shop looking for a good distortion pedal to play metal with. Out of about forty pedals, this one along with metal zone were the two heaviest, most aggressive, metally sounding pedals in the store. I couldn't decide at first; I ended up choosing this one because it was cheaper by about twenty bucks. After taking it home and playing it for a few days I realized that this pedal totally and furiously kicks major @$$. The only think I don't like about it and the reason I gave it four stars out of five is that it is difficult to make out notes the higher you turn up the distortion and gain, and there is some considerable background noise. I would like to be able to turn the distortion all the way up and still hear the clarity of chords/notes, but it tends to sound fuzzy if you turn the settings all the way up. This is the only problem I have with it though, and other than that, overall I think it's a pretty good pedal. For the record, I did go back to that same guitar store today to purchase the metal zone (price was no longer a factor since I recieved some Christmas money) and I have yet to find out if that is better than the mega distortion pedal. Once I test it out and get the feel of it I'll post a review on it.

YES!

Comments about Boss MD-2 Mega Distortion Pedal:

This might be the first and last distortion pedal you need to buy. I don't know if I worded that right but get it. You can get a few good distortions out of it and tweak them as necessary. If you think your amps distortion is good, like I did, but it's nothing like this pedal. Get it now.

This is a great pedal for someone who is starting out. This was my first pedal and still plays like a dream. If you play rock or metal this is the pedal for you.

fantastic!!

By 

from Israel

Comments about Boss MD-2 Mega Distortion Pedal:

The MD-2 Boss Mega Distortion is fantastic!!I can play all kinds of distortion with it, and a few kinds of overdrive. You need to be careful with this pedal because the distortion power is very big.I play the MD-2 with a Fender Stratocaster and the sound is fantastic, but you can use it with every guitar you want.You can mix it with the Boss great v-wah or with the Boss Super Chorus , and that will be great.

GREAT!

By 

from Canada, Quebec, Montreal

Comments about Boss MD-2 Mega Distortion Pedal:

Why spend like 50 $ more for a metal zone when the Mega Distortion 2 is almost the same one? It is great, having nice sound. Great for play old Metallica like Master of Puppets or Seek and Destroy. I recommend this Distortion Pedal. It rocks! (Ok I'll give maybe 2/5 for the color but it's the sound we need). Buy it!
