SOURCE: light indicator is on

Try changing the battery, if it doesn't help, some possibilities are:

- dirty contacts or a broken wire on the footswitch

- a broken wire from the distortion output to the output plug

- a broken wire elsewhere in the unit (e.g. potentiometers or rotary controllers)

- a bad input / output level or other potentiometer or rotary controller

- a burnt out component (a bit unlikely, but possible, and it could be anything)

- a bad connector contact inside the unit

- a bad pin solder contact on ANY of the components inside the unit (wires, connectors, switches, jack plugs, resistors,variable resistors, trimmers, diodes, capacitors, transistors, ICs, etc.)

Broken wires / badly soldered pins need to be resoldered, but if there is damage to any of the components, they wil probably need to be replaced.

I hope you can find out what it is.

SOURCE: There is a constant loud hum/buzz whenever I turn

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.

SOURCE: I just got a new Boss Metal Zone MT-2 pedal 3 days

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 works fine for about a few minutes and then the light is slowly getting pale and the sound slowly looses power until it doesn't give any sound at all. Tried a few different batteries, same thing.


Battery is not the problem.
It could be transistors, IC, elco etc. It must be checked.
This electronic parts, could be almost breakdown. At the beginning of the device is turned on, it work fine, but after a while it became hot, then the value is changed, then the circuit was not working.
Can also occur on the DC input, the diode and the elco (D006,C019,C40,C41). View image.

If you are running on battery, replace the battery. The batteries tend to recover a bit and will operate the unit for a brief period

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.

Metal Pedal mutes my guitar.


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