GREAT!

Br7ian, 03.06.2013
I grabbed one of these used just recently & on it's own...it's kind of the typical Boss distortion. Neither the most dynamic or the most realistic/tube-like sounding/feeling distortion. But it does seem to be a marked improvement from a lot of their older units that I've owned (nearly everything from the early 80's on). Typically Boss units (to me) always seemed overly harsh & artificial sounding in the upper mids and just gave off a grating "feel" & tone that did not make me want to use them. Their new Power Stack seems to mostly eradicate that problem & this unit is maybe a notch or so below that one. If I keep the TONE knob below 1:00 or so and the BOTTOM knob at about 2:30-ish it gives you a massive sounding grit, w/a ton of low end, without being to muffled. If either of those two creeps up higher than that. It starts to get either harsh or farty...depending on which knob is cranked.On it's own, I might not be super impressed...but I'm currently using it in conjunction with the Boss Power Stack in a split setup with one pedal going to one amp and the other pedal going to a 2nd amp and it really shines in that setup. Both are set to about 3/4 of the max gain & the Power Stack gives you the beefy mids, while the MD-2 provides a ton of low end & some upper-end sizzle. Both are set to less than full gain & goosed w/a overdrive for solos. So far, it seems like my favorite setup that I've had in many years.I gave it high marks for value & quality, just because Boss pedals are always durable and reliable & thus a great value for the $. Probably not the single most versatile Dist pedal out there...But for my setup it works excellent. If it was broken or was lost...I might look at other pedals...but I would definitely keep it in the running when looking for a replacement.

Rich, deep distortion in super quality

Zakath, 02.11.2009
I bought the BOSS MD-2 some time ago and I have to say that I am more than satisfied with the small but fine device.

Operation (5/5)
Very easy to use, 4 (5) knobs that allow you to modify and adjust distortion, "Gain Boost", which allows for particularly aggressive sounds, levels and the actual sound in mini-EQ styles. Connected, the pedal as usual in the Boss-Tretminen either via a corresponding 9V adapter or battery. The battery compartment can be found as usual under the actual switch, which can be easily screwed to the front side. Everything is easy to use and easy to use.

Features (4/5)
You will not be disappointed with the Boss MD-2. You can get everything from deep, clean, distorted sounds to a more "blues-ready" sound from the MD-2. However, you can only really enjoy the sound of the MD-2 in more heavily distorted areas, which brings us to the next point.

Sound (5/5)
The Boss MD-2 comes up with a great sound. At first I was positively surprised when I connected and played the pedal for the first time. A rich, clean sound. High quality distortion even with bad changes of the two tone controls you get a great sound out of the small device out. And even at maximum distortion you get everything you want, the pedal delivers even under full effort even great sounds and can not get on the small. Rich sound, whether you want a very deep, dark distortion or aggressive high-gain distortion, you get both here with flying colors from this small device.

Processing (5/5)
Actually, as usual from BOSS, you will also get well-made goods here, which looks great, endures a lot and allows good usability. The individual controls are also easy to handle even with minimal changes.


Result: Who wants this rich, deep, aggressive sound or everything in one and that in top quality and good workmanship should strike here. The price of 79 euros is also completely fine. Anyone who hesitates is guilty. - Appreciation: 5/5
