Hi guys ,

Do you know if the Boss metal zone pedal is digital nowadays or has a digital component ?

Schematics for the MT-2 show all analogue. It would be overkill really, unless e.g. you want crunch at any input level (Line 6 Crunchtone?)

No I only use it for a heavy distorted lead sound with a lot of mids dialed in . I wondered if the Meteal zone was digital because it seems that other pedals of Boss like the CH 1 chorus and the PH 3 phase shifter are digital I am told

I own the PH 3 and never expected it to be digital

Older CH-1s are analogue. They changed them to digital in 2001.

Due to an IC change, the parts have been changed from serial No. AP11700.
We call the new type of this model, CH-1A for identifying the old type and new type for convenience on service system.
Although the model name will change from CH-1 to CH-1A, the product pedal is still labeled CH-1.
The appearance of CH-1 and CH-1A are the same. Identify by the serial number or the model name that is silk-screen printed on the board.
