Some distortion pedals are wussy. We're not judging them, we're just saying. And if you're sick of distortion pedals that fink out just before they really get mean and biting... the BOSS ML-2 deserves a place on your pedalboard. Dubbed the "Metal Core", the ML-2 is the heaviest of BOSS distortions with a nice sharp-edged attack for your crushing metal riffs. You'll love this one for all kinds of industrial, hard core, nu metal, grind core... all sorts of music. What's sweet is there's a LOW control that can get you a really heavy, low-frequency sound (think 7-string or dropped tuning style), and you can dial in that HIGH control to get a screaming, more metallic tone.

It does the job, though with my set up I wasn't able to get the super bassy, beefy tone that I originally was going for (which may or may not have actually been my amp's fault). But, I actually found a better, more versatile tone with good mids. Took some messing around and when I first plugged it in I felt like I made a wrong choice, but after neutralizing the EQ on the amp and pedal, I was able to find a tone that sounds really cool.
I have the distortion slightly backed down from full, probably about 80%, the low at 10 O'clock, and the highs at 2 o'clock. paired with a BOSS compressor and noise gate box, I've got a pretty good tone good for Iron Maiden and Kill Em All Metallica stuff, as well as metalcore / melo-death stuff.
Overall a good pedal, and as the first pedal on my pedalboard, it does a good job at giving me the metal tone that I want.
