The Mega Distortion has a dual distortion and gain circuit that produces some really heavy distorted sound. No other Boss pedal has as much gain as the MD-2. Focus is on the bottom end and 7 string players have been targeted by advertising campaigns. With the massive gain that this pedal can produce, it can easily become very noisy at high gain settings.
