    Have you tried it on another amp? Tried a fresh battery? Have you checked to see if anything is shorting out inside the pedal?

    Did you try a new battery or another power supply?

Dead battery or disconnected power adapter. Leaving cables connected discharges battery in a day as this is what switches the battery on. (The input cable)

I just got a new Boss Metal Zone MT-2 pedal 3 days ago(1-28-11) n when I press on it is not turning on???


Try the obvious stuff first.
  1. Check that it has a battery in it and it is installed the right way round.
  2. Only use top quality batteries (Duracell Ultra or equivalent) do not use re-chargeables as they don't achieve adequate voltage.
  3. If you are using a mains adapter try a battery instead as the adapter may be faulty (or vice versa)
  4. Some effects pedals will not switch on without a jack plug in either the input or output socket (or both)
  5. If none of that works it is probably faulty - take it back to the shop and ask them to replace it or prove it works

It is possible the pedal is DESIGNED to be used with an amplified (preamp within guitar) and yours MAY be a passive guitar. You did not tell us what guitar you have.
Many of the processors for guitars depend on having a "line level" signal and that requires that your guitar has a built in preamp.
If your guitar doesn't have a preamp in it, buy a preamp to put ahead of this pedal.

How to set up foot switch in order


Personally I recommend the following set up:

Distortion>Effects>Compression/Noisegates/Sustain

This will ensure that the signal won't have any odd hiccups due to an odd pedal setup. But if you play around with different orders, you can end up with some very interested sounds.

There is a constant loud hum/buzz whenever I turn the pedal on. With my Boss Mt 2 Metal Zone effects pedal. It happens whether or not the power supply is plugged in. Ive tried switching cables and...


First and foremost , check your signal chain. By that, i mean put the pedal aside, ...just unhook it and take it out of your signal path. Using the same cables , guitar , amp, other pedals - borrow a friends MT-2 if you can get one , and try THAT to see if THAT works , OR any other kind of distortion pedal. If another one works ok , it's YOUR MT-2. Boss pedals are pretty rugged , but sometimes the little actuator (on/off switch) underneath the treadle (where you push your foot down) will become faulty. That's a high-gain pedal - are you using a basic Strat or other single-coil pickup guitar? If so , are you playing close to any flourescent lights? SIngle coils are noisy around those lights. Will cause a hum / buzz if using a heavy dist. pedal. You can check that by moving around as you play.

IF the expression pedal uses a lamp and light-dependent-resistor, check for burned out lamp at the pedal.

The Distortion Pedal has no effect on the sound.


i got d same problm. i fixed it myself.. check all the op amp ic's if they're all gud. if youre not sure, replace all 4 rc4558 ic's. in my case, i still felt a very small output signal from my pedal (equalizers, vol n gain ctrls r gud since they vary when i change the setting) so i suspected that one or 2 of my ic's were damaged. i only replace d last two op amps which my signal passes thru. i also had this problm with my marshall drive master. same diagnosis and solution. check your schematics
