How this came to be
I am not a big fan of the boss metalzone but like everything Boss does there is some serious genius in it and with the metal zone, for me, its the EQ section!
A 3 band active eq with a parametric mid control gives you such great control for a gain circuit. You can actively boost or cut the highs, mids and lows while also being able to adjust the freq range that the mid control affects! This lets you create really unique eq/gain combinations.
Since I wasn’t a fan of the gain section of the MZ I instead switched it out with the gain section from a vintage Opamp big muff giving you vintage inspired fuzz perfect to bring your tone to life.
This is one unique monster, and one bite will keep you hooked for life.
Ouput – This controls your overall volume. Its pretty straight forward
Freq – This lets you sweep through the parametric freq of the mid control. Think of a wah sweeping through freq except this lets you just pick a certain freq range to adjust and stay there
Gain – This adjusts how much fuzz you get
High – Actively boost or cut your High frequencies
Mids – Actively boost or cut your Mid frequencies
lows – Actively boost or cut your low frequencies
This is a “Limited Availability” product which means once this batch is sold out we might bring it back at some point but with a different color/finish options. This is the only time to get this cosmetic version of the pedal.
