Boss Product Overview
The BOSS MD-2 Mega Distortion lets you drive out the crushing tones that modern metal demands. The MD-2's state-of-the-art dual-stage distortion circuit with an added gain boost gives you what it says on the tin- mega distortion. The BOTTOM and TONE controls let you boost or cut your low-end or presence. The BOTTOM control is great for baritone and 7/8 string guitarists as it keeps the MD-2 from sounding "woofy". The MD-2 comes in a tank-tough BOSS casing, of course, and a 5-year warranty is included.

For some reason this pedal gets a lot of criticism on YouTube. It’s completely undeserved. This works perfectly for that modern metal chug sound. But surprisingly works equally well as a Blues Overdrive. Best of all is the price which is very reasonable considering the build quality. The pedal will probably outlast me!
It’s fantastic! Easy to work with, and get some great tones and sounds out of it. I love it!
Not a metal head. Serves my distortion needs more than adequately. Get some freaking great sounds out of it.
