I thought the the top boost was useless, but the EQ on it is great.
I play mostly Slayer and never had to put the gain past 11:00.

yea thats were ive got it now but what about the other knobs for slayer? and same thing the top boost is for solos i guess?

I think the Metal Muff is an excellent distortion pedal.

It is one of two distortion pedals on my immense GAS list (Along with the Way Huge Fat Sandwich)

I already have a way to get great Sabbath tones, and most other metal tones, but I love the MM for the extra chunk it can give to a dark amp like mine.

^ before you get this pedal what is your amp??
cuz if you have a modeling amp or an MG it wont do you any good...........

Its a great pedal. I've had mine for over a year now and it just now gave me a problem...the power jack stopped working with my one spot...so I had to buy one of the one spot 9V battery clips...and it works fine again I get a pretty good metalcore sound out of mine (going to a Peavey Windsor) by keeping the top boost at 11:00, treble at 2:00, mid at 11:00, bass at 3:00, distortion at 1:00, volume to taste. Very versatile pedal, the EQ is great. A lot of times I will set it up for the sound I want, then use the top boost for solos. But when I use the settings that I mentioned above, I use my MXR 10-band to add punch/gain/mids for leads.

I think the Metal Muff is a terrible pedal. It is muddy, and characterless. It has a good EQ, though and I could find various different sounds with it.

every1 is saying they have founds sounds in it but what im asking for is what type of sounds you found and wat settings you have it set at to get those sounds plz thanks

Mids for Slayer. First get a decent sound with just your amp EQ. then go for a good scooped sound with the Metal Muff - then add the mids (and maybe take some away on the amp - that's how I ran it). Your mileage will vary.

Use this only with a clean channel on a modeling amp.
