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.
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.
