Hey UG,

I'm gonna buy a good distortion pedal in a week or so, but I don't know which to buy.
I have an Epiphone Les Paul Custom (with EMG 81/85), and a Blackheart Handsome Devil with Celestion 2×12 speakers.
I am looking for a good metal crunch, and a fat solo sound. Like most metalcore-ish bands. I do not play metalcore, but I like the guitar sound so..

Budget's probably about 200 euros max.

Tl;dr? It's only a few lines, just read it you lazy bastard

To give you a better understanding of the distortion 'crushy' sound:
I really like their tone in the intro. Ready to get flamed, but tbh, I don't give a sh¡t.

I live in Holland. For those that don't know, that's between England, France and Germany. For those so stupid they don't know where that is, it's in Europe.
Current gear:
Carvin CT6M
TC Electronics Dark Matter distortion
Harley Benton 2x12, with Celestion V30s
Laney Ironheart 60w tube amp

erm.... Digitech DF-7????
Don't know much about them stompboxes, I just recommended this one 'cause this was the only distortion pedal I thought of buying (due to it's versatility...)
Oh and... Try the Boss metalcore pedal if you're into "that metal-core tone"
