Inspired by Boss HM2, one of the most important distortion pedals in metal’s history which defined 80s heavy metal tone. This pedal is a cult classic that any guitarist must-have has a companionship.
We actually do not understand why the Boss MH2 ™ even has knobs, but we added one more to make it more useful. I mean, you crank them all and get the sound 1990 metal tone from Sweden. Instant Entombed buzzsaw tones just by pushing the footswitch down. But still, giving the EQ a third band makes it easier to use it with all kinds of amps. Make sure you check the footprint of the 2.2uf you buy. They can cause some headaches if you source too big ones.
There is scarcely a more important pedal in underground metal. Used in many different contexts across the last three decades, it is still in force and vigorous than ever.
