Boss ML-2 Metal Core Distortion Pedal

With its extreme gain, the ML-2 is the most potent and heavy distortion pedal ever created by BOSS. It easily delivers massive distortion and gain with heavy lows for playing Nu Metal, Grind Core, Industrial, Hard Core, or any genre that requires crushing sound. The ML-2's ferocious and biting tone will complement and cut through any blast beats your rhythm section can create.

4.5 out of 5 (28 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Finally a pedal that sounds like BoltThrower,Fear Factory,Pantera,Death.And doesnt sound too tinny and high pitched....Boss rule"
Sound: I use a Washburnx37 seven string guitar with seymore duncan JB pickups and a Washburn 7 string with Dimarzio X2N pickups in the bridge.I drop way down to A and G tunings.With thick .70 strings.I use an old Ibanez Toneblaster 100 watt head for the clean channel and a presonus mic tube preamp to make the signal louder.With an Ibanez toneblaster 4x12 cab.Anyways This new boss metalcore pedal is crunchy and powerful at the same time without being muddy or tinny.I like it alot better than the deathmetal pedal and the Metalzone.It also will make your sound more punchy.My band plays heavy,fast death and blackmetal and this pedal makes my sound cut through the mix with ease.I say to anyone with a cheap amp with crappy distortion to buy this pedal and run it into your clean channel for an awesome distortion tone.I would also buy a cheap 50.00$ tube preamp like a behringer or art ,just to boost your guitar signal before it hits the amp.Makes it twice as loud! Feature: This pedal does not have alot of features.It has a high,low,level and distortion adjustment.But its tuned for a heavy low mid crunchy sound.If you turn down the distortion and turn up the high then you will get a more midrange 80s metal lead sound.I like the highs down and lows up for a thick badass modern metal tone.Even if your guitar has cheap stock pickups,this thing will make um sound great.So go out and get a job and go buy this pedal.lol. Ease of Use: easy Manufacturer Support: Never had to contact Boss.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "GET THIS PEDAL!"
Sound: BY far the best overall sound for METALHEADS. after some careful decision making between this and 2 other pedals (one by line 6 and other by Digitech) i am more than happy with the sound. I use this with a stock LTD f50 and a crate GTX212 120 watt and the range of sound is incredible. Metal to black metal and death metal and everything in between! Feature: i jumped on the free Ac adapter offer!!! Ease of Use: EASY EASY EASY is all i have to say. after playing around with teh settings, i found my favorite sound in just a few minutes Quality: It seems tough. time will tell. Value: Definitely worth the price in its range. The Wow Factor: could be bigger.. haha but its sexy.
Style of Music: Metal, progressive, death metal, thrash!!

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "I've bought several items from zZounds. I had purchased a bass amp and had to return it because of a manufacturing defect. I received a return slip and shipped it back with no problems. The shipping on a bass combo amp isn't cheap! I've even used the online chat to discuss equipment and actually talked to a bass player that gave some great recommendations on filling out the total sound of my rig. zZounds rocks and will be my exclusive gear store!"

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest.
