Ok, well currently im running a carvin x100b (80's model) through a custom made 2x12..

I love the cleans and the lead tones on this amp no question it sings.. However, it lacks in any form of rhythym tone, which is what i play in my band.. Im currently using an boss mt-2 metal zone. :'( and after playing with it for about a freaking year ive honestly gotten not horrible tones out of it thanks to the x100, HOWEVER.. im looking for something perhaps a little more versatile, and far better sounding, and an amp is not an option right now due to money, and the fact i love the rest of my amp...

So im getting a new distortion pedal. I need something that can do heavy stuff.. I LOVE recto's sounds, and a bogner uberschall, (I know i cant get a pedal to sound like that, but i like tones LIKE that).. I listen to literaly anything with a guitar, and love heavy stuff like, all that remains, avenged sevenfold, killswitch engage, and lighter-ish stuff than that like shinedown, system of a down, tool, anything really..


any thoughts on ( http://www.guitarcenter.com/Tech-21-SansAmp-Tri-A-C--Distortion-Pedal-151794-i1124576.gc )

or what would you guys recomend?

Price isnt really a determining factor as long as its not over 300 (not that hard)

Electro harmonix metal muff is without a doubt one of the best metal pedals i have purchased. i have bought and used the boss metal core (not that good), the metalzone (also not that great), and a digitech death metal (worst of all) but the EHX metal muff has great tone with a good EQ section and is very user friendly. i would suggest giving it a try at your local shop if they carry it.

I've heard it through youtube and honestly was not that impressed with it, however people rave about it, is it versatile at all? Maybe i will have to try one out?

Im not a fan of the metal muff. The pedal in youre link should be pretty good. The Tech 21 GT2 is also a good good, versatile pedal that can good good heavy tones
