Boss ML-2

Metal Core Pedal

This is the most aggressive distorter that BOSS has ever built - for the hard core of metal fans! The most extreme distortion with a snappy attack for the hardest riffs!

When the most brutal of sounds are desired, the ML-2 Metal Core is the perfect weapon: for death metal, industrial, grind core, extreme metal, etc.

The bass control of the LOW knob ensures extreme bass, even for 7-string guitars and drop tunings, while the HIGH knob ensures cutting, metallic highs. Ultra fierce!

  • Ultra heavy distortion - ideal for the hardest riffs
  • Also for 7-string and dropped tunings
  • LOW knob for extreme bass (7-string guitar/drop tunings)
  • HIGH knob for cutting treble
  • Robustly manufactured - typical of BOSS
  • Weight: 0.4 kg
  • Dimensions (W x D x H): 73 x 129 x 59 mm

I'm not sure how to describe this
Medvedotron, 13.02.2019
I wanted to have this classic metal masterpiece for fun and I'm kind of disappointed. It's objectively good, it does what it should, it has enough knobs to let you play with it instead of guitar for hours. Where's the problem? It's fizzy, the proper tone can't be set easily (you have very short span of cool sound before the fizz appears while turning the knobs) and it's definitely not a pedal for all amps. So unless you have many of them you might be unlucky and it's not going to work with your setup. Definitely try it with your amp before you buy or at least don't use it as your first and only pedal.

Perfect for metal
PaulDaVinci, 03.04.2019
Boss delivers as always, high quality and durability, takes all the punishment you can dish out during a gig. It would be preferable to have a dedicated Mid control to adjust the tone even more finelly, additionally it would be nice if the distortion control had a wider range of control, from 25% and on it goes full one metal, which is nice, however after that the distortion increase has less of an impact.
