    Re: Let's talk pedals

    NEVER be afraid to turn the gain DOWN on an uber dirt box. Might be surprised at the tone you find.

    I call my HM-2 Mr. Growley when the gain is ~3-4. Very cool sound!

        The Metal Core is much easier to dial in than the Metal Zone. The Metal Zone has a few sweet spots, but most people miss them.

            This. My cheap knock-off's gain is right around 1, then I jam an FZ2 knock-off on boost mode into it to push the choppy OD into that buzzsaw tone.

              Just have to know how to play the amp. Everything on 10 or 5 ISN'T necessarily it.

                That most of MT2 users, like the kids in Guitar Centers, can't get a good sound of it, doesn't mean that a good sound can't come out of it. For certain styles I think the pedal certainly has a place. Have a listen to Blinded by Fear by At the Gates.

                  I always thought the Metal zone was a bad pedal but my buddy used one through a JVM halfstack a few times and WOW killer Silverchair and other heavy tight distortion tones.

                  I think folks just associate the Metalzone with the long haired Teens playing metallica through a Fender Frontman 15 in their room.

                    Through a Peavey solid state amp, into a custom cabinet with 10" speakers.

                      been there done that! actually it was a frontman 212r.

                      I have a friend that plays in a worship band and he uses the metalzone for leads, he gets some good tones. Tho like someone said earlier, the hm2 is where it's at. But that one is much more expensive

                        Its ok that amp is miles better than the amp I started with (old carpet covered Yorkville Bass combo)

                        I have heard some people use the Metal zone for its EQ and have the gain off completely.. whether or not they modded it to get rid of all gain I can't remember but they said it was a lot like the Parametric EQ Boss pedal that is expensive used now online.

                          Yep. Lower the gain a lot (10hs or less on the gain knob), boost the mids and cut bass & treble. Very usable sounds using this pedal this way.
                          Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think.

                            I "like" my MT2 with all knobs at noon, 'cept gain at 10 o'clock. Only useable setting for me.
                            IMO, the MT2 has potential but the EQ is very nasty(or nasally).
                            Any of you recommend a dirt pedal with the compression and gain of the MT2 without it's nasally character??
