Celebrate the World Icon in Thickly Saturated High Gain Distortion - the Boss MT-2-3A Metal Zone 30th Anniversary Pedal

Introduced way back in 1991, the iconic MT-2 Metal Zone remains the king of high-gain distortion stomps for guitarists around the world, with over one million sold and counting. Its thick, saturated sound is perfectly suited for metal styles and is also great for playing heavy rhythms and soaring solos in other genres. With an incredibly wide tone-shaping range and ultra-smooth sustain, the multifaceted MT-2 brings an array of rich distortion voices to any musical setting.

Limited Edition 30th Anniversary MT-2 Metal Zone (MT-2-3A)

To celebrate 30 years of continuous MT-2 production, Boss has created a limited edition version that's available throughout 2021. This commemorative pedal features gray lettering and a vintage silver thumbscrew for the battery compartment and comes in a box with a special 30th Anniversary logo.


  • Iconic high-gain distortion pedal 
  • Innovative dual-stage gain circuit produces thick and tight distortion sounds with smooth, singing sustain
  • Three-band active EQ with semi-parametric midrange provides intense sound customization with up to 15 dB boost/cut on each band
  • Easy to achieve massive, satisfying sounds at any volume level
  • BOSS five-year warranty


Step into the Metal Zone

The MT-2 is BOSS’s second most popular drive pedal ever, after the DS-1 Distortion. A key to its enduring success is the ability to achieve dense, heavy crunch and singing sustain at any volume, providing an instantly inspiring experience for players at every skill level. And thanks to its smooth character and active EQ with semi-parametric midrange, the MT-2 works well with all types of guitar amplifiers, including clean “pedal platform” amps.

Innovative Dual-Stage Gain Circuit

Under the hood, the MT-2 employs an innovative analog circuit design to realize its rich, heavy voice. Two gain stages are configured in series, with the first stage providing mid-focused clarity that feeds the second stage’s more aggressive character. Carefully tuned pre- and post-distortion filtering (seven total stages) ensures that the tone is tight and well-defined at every setting, with no mud or flub whatsoever

Shapeshifter 

The MT-2’s advanced tone shaping goes far beyond the capabilities of most analog drive pedals, letting you dial in everything from chugging, mid-scooped rhythm mayhem to bold, cutting sounds that poke through the densest mixes. Post-distortion Low, Middle, and High knobs offer +15 dB cut or boost to perfectly match your guitar and amp type or craft entirely new tones. The midrange is the heart of every guitar’s voice, and the MT-2 provides a variable control to set the frequency in this critical band anywhere from 200 Hz to 5 kHz.
