im looking for a decent distortion pedal that will really give me over the top distortion for when i play really heavy stuff. anyone recommend any good pedals?
im currently looking at the digitech death metal one.

oh and a quick question...do pedals sound the same on every amp? like would it still be as good on a marshall MG 100dfx?

cheers

i'm guessing "like would it be good on a MG" is a way to cover up from getting flamed.

the TL2 is really good to take you over the top imo.

yeah the problem is that my marshall MG100dfx has pretty rubbish distortion which is why everyone hates them so much. so thats why i need a decent pedal, maybe the death metal from digitech or the metal zone?

If you have the MG100dfx, I suggest a new amp first. A dist pedal really won't help.

But anyway:
TL-2
Blackstar HT-DIST/DIST-X
Maybe the metal muff.

Don't go for the metal zone/death metal, they have worst distortion than the MG.

No pedals can beat the mg's CRUSHING overdrive!

But seriously, crappy pedals usually sounds the same through most amps, and will actually sound better through crappy amps. High end pedals, though, really bring the best of your amp and guitar, wich means you get a completly different from it on differents amps and differents guitars.

throwing a distortion pedal infront of an MG will only bring out the worst in that amp... new amp time bro, but to answer your question, look into the mods for the metal zone... i remember coming across a really sweet one awhile back, but i forgot who did it. metal muff ain't bad either. if you're looking for raunchy, dimebaggian, punch you in the gut with a chainsaw, line6 uber metal. fair warning, that last one is nasty (and i mean that in every way possible) .

+1 so true .


if you got a solid state amp .. get a Line 6 Uber metal and it will sound good . or electro harmonix metal muff .

dont get a high end pedal like a dr boogey or Dual resistafier , cause they just wont sound great through a solid state amp . these pedal are awesome .. but theyre built for tube amp .

my dual resistafier and Mi audio crunch box doesnt sound as good as my cheaper Line 6 Uber metal .. right now ... because i m playing thorugh a roland microcube hook on a 4x12 marshall cab at really low volume .

those boutique stuff need the right set up to come alive .

so if you have a MG ... get a Line 6 uber metal and you should be set for metal stuff . For what it is ... the Uber metal is a great pedal .

Look into the AMT Electronics pedals. Not much more than the boss/digitech stuff, but a lot better sounding distortions (100% analog circuits). They compete sound-wise to the Sansamp stuff from Tech21. I run my AMT DT-2 into the front of a little 20watt SS amp and it sounds great (Fender R.A.D. amp).

Radial Bone pedals...theres about 5 different ones i think and they sound great.....I own the Radial Texas Bone and it sounds great on my Bugera and it even makes my Crate Flexwave sound much better....but thats cause the disto/OD on the flexwave sucks so run it on the clean and you get MUCH better tone. BUT thats just my opinion.
Crank your rig on 12, let it feedback wide-open for a good two minutes, freak your neighbors out and ENJOY THE POWER OF THE GUITAR! 'Oh, what a feeling,' and it ain't no damned Toyota!" ----Dimebag Darrell

The Hardwire TL-2 is based off the Metal Zone, FYI.

I think what he's trying to say is that the amp is only capable of so much... a high-end distortion would be a lost cause, not that a cheaper dist would actually sound "better."

or he could mean something else.
