Aimed at metal players, the Taiwanese-made MD-2 ($129 retail/$79 street) features a two-stage distortion circuit designed to slam out furious high-gain tones that pack sizzling edge and massive low-end thrust. The concentric Tone and Bottom controls are especially powerful, enabling you to dial in just the right balance of rumble and high-frequency bite, and the Level and Distortion knobs provide all the output and sustain you need for everything from searing blues/rock to Dimebag-inspired mosh. Shred fanatics will especially appreciate the Gain Boost control, which intensifies the grind to replicate the scathing tones produced by high-powered amplifiers of the Randall/Rectifier ilk. If carnivorous grind is more important to you than tube-style sweetness, get down with Mega Distortion.
KUDOS Extreme gain. Powerful EQ.
CONCERNS Not true bypass.
