boss MD-2 distortion,pedal

Created: 04/11/10
an interesting,effect to say the least you know there are a lot of distortion pedals out there,when it comes to deciding,that your music needs one then one has to consider what am i looking to hear from my distortion,and there are a lot of variables,in which to choose from are you looking for heavy heavy tone with high end treble or that thick rich tone that delivers that crunching bass in your single notes well at any rate heres a pedal you should not over look, the BOSS MD-2,i think the MD,might stand for (m)ind blowing (d)estruction the second generation (2) well after hearing the MD-2, it wasnt hard to not call it that man its a killer of a distortion,pedal im not into the death metal scene,i mean i dont play it all the time but i enjoy it sometimes but this little red devil of a distortion is bad in a very good way ever since trying one ive bought several boss distortion pedals and of all my distortion pedals,this little red devil is the one i use most i love it wouldnt play without it sincerely william 11-4-10 jam on dude, power to the people.

Boss MD-2 Distortion Pedal

Created: 18/08/10
I used a lot (well, a full pedalboard) of Boss pedals in the late '70s to mid '80s, and I always found them to be very reliable.
That said - this particular pedal not only seemed to rob tone from my rig (Gibson LP, Vintage Dean V, Vintage Kramer Pacer through a Marshall), but the distortion was muddy; no real distinction of notes; very 'canned' sounding.
I resold it locally easily enough, and replaced it with a Hardwire Distortion. Nice edge; great harmonics & note definition. Won't be adding anymore Boss pedals to my board, unless they revolutionize their designs.

Fantastic sound. In my opinion, this is one of the best distortion pedals around. Playing power chords on this beast is like aural sex, and it gives me eargasms every time I plug it in.

This pedal is very nice, it is not very versatile, but for thrash/heavy metal like Metallica, Black Sabbath it sounds great! I like to use it combined with Boss SD-1.

It is a well built pedal. AC adaptable. Stacked tone controle do help dialing in a good tone. At low GAIN and DIST settings this pedal gives a good overdrive. It is not noisy, no hum.
