Metal Zone: a milestone in high-gain stomps
First released in 1991 and in continuous production ever since, MT-2 Metal Zone is loved by guitarists everywhere for its thick, rich distortion and distinctive mid-focused character. Capable of producing a versatile range of heavy tones, MT-2's innovative dual-stage gain circuit has influenced legions of pedal designers through the years. Another standout feature is its groundbreaking three-band EQ with parametric midrange, which provides deep sound-shaping ability for covering numerous high-gain styles. The pedal was also one of the first Boss compacts with dual-concentric knobs, offering expanded control without increasing size.

MT-2W: refined tones with Waza craftsmanship
Like all Waza Craft pedals, MT-2W infuses an original Boss analog design with artful refinements for enhanced performance and versatility. The dual-stage gain circuit features a discrete design with carefully selected components, providing premium tones with increased clarity. The EQ has been refined as well, with a smoother midrange tone and unique Q values specially tuned for the pedal's Standard and Custom modes.

Standard mode: enhanced Metal Zone
Supported by the discrete components in MT-2W's dual-stage gain circuit, Standard mode takes Metal Zone's famous mid-driven sound to the next level. The attack is even more responsive and the definition and clarity has been enhanced as well. Noise has been reduced, too, providing improved performance at ultra-high gain settings.

Custom mode: wide and tight
Engaging MT-2W's Custom mode voices the pedal for a huge, wide-ranging sound, making it ideal for nearly any current heavy style. The tone is natural and open with increased dynamics and rounder lower mids than Standard mode. Even at the highest gain settings, the low end remains full yet tight, focused and well-defined, perfect for chugging out low-tuned riffs. The sound also cleans up very nicely when reducing your guitar's volume, putting an extremely balanced range of tones under your fingers.
