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.

Hi :) I have a problem with my Boss mt-2 pedal. Whenever I insert the jack plug in the input, the adapter switches off automatically. The pedal works fine with battery and no problem is created. This only...


Make sure you are NOT using a TRS (stereo or three conductor cable) type cable. PLugging into the input should turn the pedal ON, not off. The switch on the jack may be broken or soldering to the circuit board may be broken OR worst case, there is a crack in the circuit board.

"Check"light wont turn off on


From the user's manual:

The Check light lights when the effect is on. It ALSO is a battery indicator and when it gets dim, you need to replace the battery if you are not using an adapter.

If it won't go OFF when you try to turn it off, then the switch has probably failed or wiring to it has failed. In this case, service is required.

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

My MT-2 wont distort my guitar.


A few things to try....

Usually the adapter will over ride the battery when used.
1) Make sure your 1/4" cables are working properly without the pedal "in-line".

2) Take out battery, and use just the adapter only. Make sure it is the correct and proper adapter that works with Boss. Usually the PSA-120. If you are not using a Boss Adapter, make sure yours is a direct replacement with same specifications. 9V/200mA. And "tip negative". DO NOT use Radio Shack stuff, nothing against them, but there adapters just don't mix well with Boss products and the like.

2) Try just the battery, no AC adapter. Remember to unplug the input when not in use. Saves battery.

Basic rule of thumb...when using correct AC adapters for all your pedals all the time, and all sounds good, then take out the batteries.

If you still experience problems, it would be an internal IC chip most likely. From there post another question maybe.

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.

Metal Pedal mutes my guitar.


Sell the pedal and get a digitech, or convert it into a looper pedal.
