if its going to be more for adding a touch of gain and tightening up your amp, then it can work. if your amp isnt providing you with a good base tone thats close to what you want, this pedal isnt going to help much. its a good pedal, but its not something you would layer over your clean tone to get a metal sound.

That Bugera has more than enough gain to get a good metal tone.
If you're looking to layer it over the clean channel then it isn't gonna get nearly as heavy

If you're looking to boost the lead channel, then that's... just a horrible idea.

it tightens the tone up a bit, i don't know what you mean.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Is the Ibanez TS9DX good for a metal/metalcore ish sound? Current set up is a bugera 6262 halfstack

If a bugera doesn't have enough gain for you then your doing something wrong.

* Schecter Jeff Loomis Signature 7 String
