    Never tried them on bass but when regarding guitar, the digitech is the best IMO. If you can, check out the old Boss pedal called Digital Metalizer if i remember correct, it's IMO better then the new one.

    I played around with the MT-2, but not for very long. It really can give you major distortion, fuzz-like at the extreme. At first I had problems with lack of low end, but it has EQ that you can pretty much maintain the lows. It's not really my cup of tea, but fun to mess with. It would be perfect though for certain Metallica and POTUSA songs.

    Spent a little more time with the MT-2. It's great with guitar, but for bass, I'd probably look elsewhere. Voodoo Sparkle Drive, Big Muff, and Fulltone get a lot of good reviews here on TB.

    I love when companys put in the genre which this pedal is to be used: The question should be to you, "Do you want to just be in the metal zone? Or be the METAL MASTER?!?" :D
