I've been using a Boss MT-2 Metal Zone for some time now and I've been thinking of purchacing a 2nd one to keep at different settings. But now I'm wondering if there better heavy distortion pedals out there.

Any recommendations??

I play alot of metal (Strapping Young Lad type stuff)

The Digitech Hardwire TL-2 is good. Less than a hundred bucks.

If you wanna spend more in the 100 - 200 range, check out a Radial Tonebone Hot British and the Tech 21 SansAmp California.

I would suggest a Hardwire TL-2 or a Metal Muff. Sell the Metal Zone. Also, what amp do you have? (I'm almost afraid to ask)

-Gibson LP VM
-Silvertone Kentucky Blue
-MXR CC Delay
-Ibanez TS-9
-Egnater Rebel 20
-Avatar 1x12

My rig is simple
Haha. UG's Chuck just said chuck. haha
You're not truly playing guitar unless you know theory.

you can keep using that but if you want some really heavy stuff get the Boss ML-2 metal core its the heaviest distortion pedal made by boss


Boss is teh suckzorz (with the exception of a few pedals. I like their noise surpressor, tis 'bout it )

In my defense, its the only noise supressor i have ever used, (never really had the need for one) and it seemed to work pretty well.

For all those who wanted to know my amp, its a Crate GLX-65. I haven't been a huge fan of the distortion channel. Sounded alittle too digital
#16
I think you'd be better of with a new amp in that case. If the amp sounds digital, a pedal won't make much difference.

You could have your Metal Zoned modified. I hated my Metal Zone. I tried the Monte Allums mod. Now I love it. I also have a Metal muff and an 80's Rat. I like them both, but the modded Metal zone is my favorite.

actually i've heard the boss metal-core isn't all that bad. have you people ripping on it ever heard one?

First of all, I enjoy deathcore for it's complexity and it's the only genre heavy enough for me
