What genres/bands do you play/want to sound like?


And in any circumstance only get the DS-1 if you plan to mod it, I don't know about the metal core though.

i preety much just play thrash metal and rock, bands like metallica, iron maiden, and megadeth


Sorry, but you really haven't narrowed it down enough. Go to a store and try every tube amp they have. Get an idea of what every the different brands and amps sound like.

Sorry, my bad, I was mistaking it for a different pedal, yeah, the Mt-2 is in fact a pretty good distortion.


Also, TS, yeah it would be helpful to narrow it down a bit more, which particular guitarists would you like to imitate?

probably kirk hammett,.. or adrian smith... but i like the heavy sound that metallica makes from older albums... so james or kirk..

Hmmm, well, as far as I know Hammett uses a tubescreamer into a tube amp on a low gain setting, so you could try messing around with that to see if you get something you like in conjunction with your amp. But an Mt-2 is also a decent pedal for that kind of sound.

imo i hate the mt-2, it sounds really digital. I guess its better than the metal core though. I guess the BOSS DS-1 is ok if you can get it modded. I would really suggest looking into other brands though.
