What is your opinion of this product?
Metal Zone is one of the first stompboxes I bought when I was first learning to play guitar in 1990. The fact that they are still around today is fairly telling on its own. Given its relative antiquity, how does the Metal Zone hold up today? In my opinion, it holds up immaculately. You obviously have a fair degree of control with the 2 channel EQ, volume, and distortion knobs. This pedal won't match a lot of today's pedals as far as programmable diversity, but it continues to produce a rock solid sound. I personally use this pedal more as an overdrive than as a straight distortion these days, and it works perfectly in that regard. However, as a stand alone distortion, it still sounds good. Are there better distortion pedals out there? Yes. Are there any that are more consistent and reliable? By my mind, not so much.
Fat Metal 378 KB
Here the high and lows are boosted with the onboard EQ. Great for metal solos and riffs.
Aggressive Thrash Metal 298 KB
To get this unique, extremely distorted sound, the MT2's HIGHs and LOWs are boosted, MIDs are cut and DIST is set fairly high. This is a no-holds-barred, aggressive sound that's ideal for thrash.
70s Power Rock 328 KB
This is a great '70s power rock sound with fat, powerful MIDs - great for arena rock riffs. Work the FREQ control to tailor the MIDs response.
