I LOVE THIS PEDAL!!! I adjust the four graphic equalizer setting controls and the distortion level and it produces a massive array of distortion tones. Once I dialed in the searing distortion sound I was looking for I was in HEAVY METAL HEAVEN! I leave my amp settings at 12 on clean and use my pedal to adjust my distortion tone. Also, if you don't know where to start, the pedal comes with diagram setting for different types of music to get you started. As always, start the controls at 12 o' clock and move them. There are hundreds of distortion pedals out there, mostly with 2 or 3 knob controls, this pedal has 6. Four of those knob controls are stacked on top of each other. The guitar players who don't like this pedal are the ones who don't want to take the time to learn how to use this pedal properly and they give up, blaming the pedal, when in fact the guitarist needs to learn how to adjust the pedal. If you buy this pedal as I did, it gives tons of different distortion tones and you'll never have to buy another distortion pedal.

Great Buy! I would buy again


It has been my dream to play One by Metallica. And this makes that dream possible! I just tap it with my foot and it gives me the sound I want. Instead of having the change the settings on my amp and wasting time. Thanks so much!



Great pedal


I have known for years this is a great pedal. I had just bought a new amp and the gain channel sounded very muddy by itself. The metal zone really tightened up the sound. It make it very crunchy and thick but bright and clear at the same time. Great for hard rock and metal



You want HEAVY? This gives You HEAVY!!!


in order for this pedal to sound good you need to hook it up to a clean amp or through your effects return on the back. then start with all the controls at 12 then slowly dial in your sound. I put the bass at about 4:00 I reduce the treble to 11:00 mid frequency and gain both at 3:00 and distortion an level stays at 12:00 that gives me all the HEAVY that I could ask for. Really really cool pedal, I highly recommend it.



Thumbs up!


The pedal has a wide variety of settings. It has really enhanced all aspects of rock/metal.



Yes would buy again


Well i was going to return it.ran this into a blackstar ht40 and sounded like garbage.tried running it thru the effects loop next.still sounded like garbage.so for the hell of it i ran it thru my other amp a peavey 212 valveking and holy moly it sounds amazing.dont understand why it sounds so diff on a diff amp.so its a keeper.amazing they wouldnt post this with profanity lol



Boss makes great effects


Easy to use. Great price



Exactly what I was looking for


Exactly the pedal I left the house looking for. I really live the sounds I get from it. It has taken my one man black/thrash/punk project to an even darker place, and I'm very pleased with it.



Best Sam Ash purchase since my first guitar


This pedal literally rocks. I have never used a pedal before and was always curious why I could not get my guitar to sound exactly like the songs I was playing. However, after going to the Sam ash store I've been going to since I was 8, the employees were super helpful and walked me through a few affordable pedals and explained how to get the sound I was looking for and now I have this pedal and I couldn't be happier. I'm definitely going back soon to try and out and purchase a few more pedals.



Would definitely recommend.


This is an awesome pedal. I plugged it into the effects loop of my Orange Micro Dark Terror Amp Head and got some beautiful distortion sounds out of it. You definitely can produce amazing sounds out of this thing if you know how to use it.
