The band room that my band rents has a Fender Super Reverb Combo tube amp:

We rented the room without knowing what was inside, and to our disappointment, they have no amps with any sort of gain/distortion. I cannot bring my own amp there, since I have no car (it's Hong Kong, what would you need a car for :p, and I have to take public transport like trains and buses. Carrying my guitar with all my pedals and gear is heavy enough.

My question is, is there a pedal out there which can successfully get some thrash metal (Metallica) sounds out of the Fender Super Reverb Combo?

I hope I am in luck, thanks for any help.

Well, chances are I'll get flamed for saying this, but I quite like the Digitech Scott Ian pedal, it can get some pretty thrashy tones from it, but, the first thing I'd try to look for is a Blackstar HT-Dist or HT-DistX, or maybe a Digitech Hardwire Metal Distortion.

Oh yeah, I want to stay below 100 USD.

and thx for the replies

EDIT: in fact, i would prefer if I kept it below 80 USD...seeing as the amp isn't even mine and we may begin renting a different room.

Would a Boss DS-1 Distortion pedal be able to get a Metallica sound out of a Fender Super Reverb?

i for sure doubt it..........look at a metal muff. I've never tried the hardwire but the vids sound ok.

I would not suggest the Metal Muff, especially with a trebly blackface. The Metal Muff is very trebly and has too much of an 'icepick to the brain' quality for solid rhythm
i would suggest try 1 of the many Boss metal flavored distortion pedals for one that is more oldschool flavored - you don't want to sound like Slipknot in a Metallica cover band
remember - Metallica = mid BOOST, many people scoop the mids completely and then wonder why the don't have that kill em all tone
speaking of which, stay true to early metalica and stay away from overly processed sounds; get raw!
