I've been trying to capture a good Punk and/or metal sound from my pedals but it's not working. I have a Boss Distortion/Overdrive pedal and a Bheringer Vintage Tube monster distortion pedal. The tube pedal is the best but i would like something better anyways. Would metal zone be the way to go, or would another pedal work

Ditch the metal zone. If you really want a distortion pedal, go for either the Boss MetalCore pedal (it's a misleading name; very versitile) or the Digitech Metal Master pedal.
Both work really well with a variety of styles.
I play guitar in a ska band.

What amp are you using?
Anyway, for a punk tone I'd say the ProCo Rat Distortion. Punk was pretty much founded on it.


¦ Epiphone Sheraton II ¦ GFS Mean 90s ¦ Ampeg J-20 ¦
¦ Fulltone OCD ¦ MXR 6-Band EQ ¦ Behringer Chorus ¦ Artec Analog Delay ¦ EHX Holy Grail ¦

Ignore the first post, the Metal Zone AND Metal Core are both awful awful pedals. What is your amp? The ProCo gets great reviews.

The MT-2 is good for punk lead tones. Evil-dog from Newgrounds uses one a lot of the time and he has a great tone.

As for metal, go with a Metal Muff.

Also, if you like what I suggesed, I would reccomend selling your other two pedals and putting them towards a new amp.

Yeah, they don't arrest/ticket hobos because they can't pay the fines. Then they hang out in the jail all day eating free food. There's no point.
