I bought mine used three years ago and it works great.

I would definitely recommend this pedal for a Heavy Metal player and I greatly recommend this for Metallica players.

Boss pedals are extremely well built, known for lasting typically 10 to 20 years, or even more.

I've had my Boss Metal Zone for about 15 years and have never had any issues with it. It's an incredibly versatile distortion pedal (whether you're playing Thrash-metal or Brit-pop). I've used other (cheaper) fuzz-boxes etc, but I always come back to the Boss. Well worth the money.

Note that this pedal is meant to be used with an amp that is on a clean setting. The pedal is meant for playing metal (like Metallica), or metal-ish punk rock (like Pennywise, Strung Out, The Offspring). It does this very well. If you don't want to buy a tube amp like a Peavey 6505 or a Mesa Boogie, this pedal will get you pretty close for far less money. Of course nothing is better than a real tube amp, but this pedal is pretty cool. I combine mine with a $400 65-watt solid state amp and I love it. The EQ is very flexible, letting you dial in just about any sound you could want. The gain is adjustable too, so you can dial in more of a standard rock sound if you want. Boss pedals are extremely well built, known for lasting typically 10 to 20 years, or even more. And that's with regularly being used all the time.

I also have a Boss CH-1 Super Chorus and I put the pedals right next to each other. I can step on both at the same time and instantly switch from heavy metal distortion to a beautiful clean sound with chorus (a la Metallica), and then back.

I have a lot of pedals... In fact, I have 2 distortion and 2 overdrive pedals (though only the MT2 and the OD3 are regularly in my rig.) This pedal won't give you a "cranked up tube stack" sound. No... Instead, it's very edgy and smooth as can be. It has a mid-sweep knob on it to help sculpt your tone. I usually use it as a mid-boost for solos. You'll find that you get amazing sustain and a huge sound that you won't be able to replicate (easily... I'm sure the huge Boss distortion box comes close, but for the price...) with any other pedal.

This pedal is amazing, but it needs some work and you have to get your hands dirty. I bought mine back in 1997. Over the years I tried it with many different low end amps. I eventually played it through a Marshall JCM 800. The problem is that I never could find the sound I was looking for. I parted with the JCM (bad decision) and got a Line 6 Spider Jam (even worse decision). After a month, I was already tired of the Line 6. I dumped it for a Peavey Transformer 112 which is fantastic in its own right. Through it all, I never did find the distortion/overdrive tone I was looking for. By itself as a distortion pedal, the MT-2 produces a very paper like distortion and is painful to listen to. Well, I recently picked up a Peavey 6505+ 112 because I was dying to play a good tube amp again at a cheap price. Alone, the amp gets me close. So I decided to try the MT-2 with it on the lead channel, but in a different way than before. This time, I set the distortion to 0, but the level is set at roughly 3:00. I keep my pre-gain on the amp at 11:00 and voila! Instant tone. I also went a step further and ordered the Monte Allums Tri Gain Sustainia Mod kit. I did the work myself and now have the most amazing overdrive/distortion sound ever (without spending a fortune)! My wife was out for a bit last night and I decided to turn it up a bit. I've spent almost 20 years looking for my tone. I never thought it was possible to find with a Metal Zone. Last night was pure metal chaos in my house for 45 minutes.

This foot pedal it's beyond of what i expected of it, it's amazing super heavy and you can play with it what ever way you wan't. Completly easy to use i recomend it to any one willing to expand he's musical horizons and be heavier in what he or she plays.

This is a great pedal I picked up used, they can be had cheaply on the used market. I actually use it with both an acoustic electric guitar to get a little distortion and the bass guitar for some grit. The 2 EQ pots on the front panel make it very versatile, enough to use with a cigar box guitar also.

The pedal can preserve bass signal and still be EQ'd for saturated distortion. The other reviews speak for this pedal both here and on other sites and one can see why it is so popular. I also other Boss Distortion pedals. Like most people, I own a DS-1 and an MD-2 which are both cheap and effective. I own a HM-2 Heavy Metal 2 which caters more to the traditional metal sound and I actually think this pedal is more versatile IMO with different guitars where you may not want a strictly metal tone.

I also own an older 80's HM-2 Heavy Metal which will run circles around the metal zone for classic thrash and speed metal tones and almost any other heavy distortion pedal that I could never part with, overall i like this pedal, but it cannot top the older legendary Boss pedals.

This pedal delivers what it promises - Metal! The versatility and sound quality make this pedal a must-have for anyone playing on the heavier side. Combined with typical Boss bullet-proof construction and reliability, I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to add awesome crunch to any setup.

I bought mine used three years ago and it works great. It works for a Metallica, Pantera type sound. You can also get good rock sounds with the gain turned down and eq. adjusted.
