I've been playing for 25 years. Still gig regularly. recently, with this economy, I find myself budget shopping more and more.I've tried almost every brand of pedal at some time or another.I compare most all pedals to BOSS, as I primarily use Boss pedals. This thing is really a great deal. You can get a good vintage '80's hair metal sound(Ratt,Poison, Dokken) from this thing with the knobs cranked about 1/2 way,...or a really good modern distortion(Godsmack,Mudvein,Creed) just about anything you want. I run it thru my high gain channel of a fender frontman 2x12. I leave it on and use my channel switch to go clean-dirty. The knob placement is a lil funky, hard to adjust quickly,...but this pedal is built like a tank,....doesn't muddy up your distortion,....and lets chords still shine thru with heavy distortion. I don't reccommend it for Southern Rock, light rock,..(Skynard,...etc) a lil to heavy....but for most purposes, you can't go wrong for the 30 bucks. With the gain all the way up,..it's a little noisy,...but I doubt you'd ever need it that cranked anyway. somewhere between 1/2 and 3/4 crancked,....and scoop the mids as you like,..and it's as good as ANY other pedal I've ever used,..including Boss power stack,...boss mt-1,....ds-1,...this will do it as well or better than any of those.

I never liked Dano pedals because of the plastic cheap look and the ones I tried didn't soud great. Not the Cool Cat series! Sturdy, metal box and foremost great tone. I have my CM-2 over a year and I can't say it let me down. I played some gigs with it, I'm recording with it and it always sound great. In the 15 years that I'm playing electric guitar, I tried lot of pedals. There are so many over rates pedals in my opinion, only because something has a famous name and it cost a lot of money doesn't mean it will be a great product. I would say it has too much of distortion so don't worry, you can play everything including death metal with this box. The only thing I would change is the placement of input and output, but that is what makes them look different I guess. Buy it!
this pedal is the "real" deal, i got it based on the other reviews,and they we right, this pedal KICKS anybody ears... get it!!! you wont be disappointed.
I got this pedal for christmas and I was worried it wouldn't be powerful enough for Torche or Floor. Turns out that it's TOO powerful.PROS-Value, range of power from a nice light crunch to a destroyed, nasty, rude, searing distortion all the way up. The casing is very strong.CONS-Controls, mostly. The "switch" knob is really odd. Probably too noisy without a noisegate behind it and probably one in front of it. I use a gate behind it and it still drives the white noise coming out of that to a WHRRRRRRRRRRRRRR but those are my only gripes.
This thing has amazing tone and great sound. I wasn't expecting it to be so good. I've heard other distrtion pedals that were far inferior to this one. Highly recommend especially at the price.
I just bought this when I was in Texas about a week ago. I wanted to my amp to sound a little bit heavier. So I wanted to buy the Metal Zone Pedal, But I didn't have the money. So I gavethis pedal a shot... It's really cheap! And it really give's an awesome metal sound!! So please, when you don't have the money give Danelectro a chance.
I Love Danelectro products, I have the Orange Fuzz,Pepperoni Phaser, and today I got the Metal 2. It dosn't have an EQ per-say But it does have a three position knob that leaves the Mids: not scooped,somewhat scooped, and all scooped. They all three sound different, I prefer the "Off" position giving me some Mids. This Pedal sounds perfect for me. Great harmonics,sustain, etc..I use an Evolution Bridge pickup and the sound I getis incredible. All the reviews are correct, Tough as a tank and sounds A+. If you want Rock or Metal,this is the real deal!!
I got this pedal the other day when I was looking for a serious death metal sound and boy did I find it. This pedal gives all of the sounds of a pedal three times the price. Get it NOW!!!
when i was looking for a distortion peadal i was afraid that it wouldn't have enough distortion. well this pedal has much more then i needed it goes from classic rock to some crazy powerful distortion not even the heaviest death metal band would use. crank distortion about 3 quarters of the way and your good for any hardcore music
This pedal can give you some great metal sounds. I am really impressed with the sounds that can be produced by it. For the cost, it's great.
