I need a metal distortion sound that doesn't drown out the other instruments in the mix. I want to be able to clearly hear my bass player at the low end e,g. iron maiden, manowar etc. Which pedals should I get?

get a marshall and drive it.


There was a thread somewhere on the Marshall forums which had Maidens gear, I think they used MXR distortion or Overdrive pedals down fairly low, and some other overdrive pedal. But I'm not sure.

It really just depends on your amp.
