    Come on now... you can tell us.
    That wire going from Sig-In direct to Sig-Out ... it was 100% oxygen-free, cryogenically annealed, torroidally-routed, pure Silver , amiright?

    Maybe he uses that but the night I saw him(early days) I commented that I was surprised to see a Metal Zone on his board.

    Quick, somebody get that guy here on TGP.
    We'll straighten his tone out.
    Seriously though, with some dialing in Boss dirt can and does sound great live.

    Really, I love their album "Highly Evolved". Would never have guessed the distortion was a Metal Zone.

    I saw them live and it was all boss pedals. Tu2, metal zone and two boss delays. Couldn't make out the numbers on them but I think they were dd3 and dd5.

    Guess it’s the player, not the pedal!

    Ummm... I actually have a Keeley modded Metal Zone. I haven't played it in a while but... I kinda like it. Sounds monstrous.

    it was a Boss Metal Zone...

    Tone is in the fingers. Obviously, this dude had compensatory phalanges.

    Before I clicked the thread title, I’m doing the internal chant:

    “please be a metal zone, please be a metal zone,” (clicks link) “YES!!”

    I wouldn't have guessed that if you offered me a million dollars in prize money and gave me a year to guess it.:)

    Most pedals can be used to get a usable sound if enough time is spent seeing what it can do.

    In the late 80’s I ran a MXR Distortion Plus and a Boss HM-2 into a Peavey Century Head and it could go from slightly hairy to monstrous.

    Not sure about that but I think the Metal Zone was used by Clapton on most of the Cream sessions in the 60s. It's a well kept secret.
