MT-2W

Online

For over 25 years, the MT-2 Metal Zone has been one of the most popular and influential compact pedals in the BOSS lineup, with overall sales that are second only to the venerable DS-1 Distortion. Made in Japan and infused with Waza Craft mojo, the MT-2W takes the iconic stomp to new levels of tonal range and versatility. Standard mode delivers an evolved version of the original mid-focused Metal Zone tone, while Custom mode introduces a fresh, wide-ranging voice that's perfectly suited for today's diverse high-gain styles.

• Premium Waza Craft pedal with all-analog audio circuitry
• Innovative dual-stage gain circuit built with discrete analog components
• Standard mode updates the famous MT-2 Metal Zone sound with improved clarity and lower noise
• Custom mode delivers full-throttle gain tones with wider range, increased dynamics, and tighter low end
• Powerful three-band EQ provides intense sound customization with High, Low, and sweepable Midrange and up to 15 dB boost/cut on each band
• Premium buffer for clean and clear tone when bypassed
• Made in Japan
• BOSS five-year warranty

Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreSt. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador
I have used the stock MT-2 many times, and every time was kinda let down. I was not a guitar player in the 90's, so I have had reach to much more high gain amps/pedals. However, I have always wanted a Metal Zone made better with a better circuit. This one nails it, the custom circuit allows you to run in front of your tube head and get amazing high gain tones. It's shocking how good it does sound with proper EQ. Even on the stock circuit, the noise level is very quiet compared to the regular MT-2. Very good pedal, for the niche market it is for nowadays.
