Hi guys,

I'm thinking about buying a distortion pedal for my guitar. I want play Metalcore and I'm searching for a punching sound or something similar to Heaven Shall Burn or any other band like this. .I play on an Esp Ltd EX-260 with a Marshall MG30DFX. I'd like to know what pedal you would recommend to me or if I should just by a new amp and what would you recommend to me.

Really, you should just buy a new amp.

Look for a used Peavey Ultra, Ampeg VH140C, and a 5150/6505. Also, check Alf's 'Ultimate Gear for Metal' thread.

If you can't get a new amp, go with a Digitech Hardwire TL-2.
