I'm looking to up my metal tone, and not be as digital. Would you recommend the Boss pedal over my Line 6 one? I'm looking to get a closer Opeth distortion sound. What I was thinking of doing was turn the gain low on my Crate V16 to get the cleans and just the pedal for distortion.

By the way I'm also just wondering if tube amps like distortion pedals.

**** the Metal Zone. Get the Metal Core....

The metal zone is nothing but static.


EDIT: Most tube amps react perfectly with distortion pedals. A lot of high-gain tubes I've played on clashed with them a bit though.

I'm not looking to play teh br00tlez or anything that heavy. Just a more analog metal tone.

If you go that route, check out the Keeley modded mt-2, a bit pricier, but the sound clips sound much better

Also, the Digitech Hardwire series ain't bad.

Don't get the Boss MT 2 or ML 2 they're both pretty bad, unless you plan on having modded.
How much do you want to pay for th pedal?

Just not so much as to pay the amount of a new amp? Maybe around $100.

The Digitech Hardwire metal pedal is based on the Metal Zone, so the circuit itself is certainly not bad. With some cap changes to lower the harshness/fizziness it's actually a useful pedal if you don't want to spend the cash on a high-gain amp.

Granted, the Metal Zone is horribly overpriced new.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

Can you go used?
Because for that price you can get good deal used.
I just bougth a Radial tonebone for 125$ on my craiglist, those pedal are really nice, and they have plenty of gain on tap.
I say just troll your craiglist, maybe you'll find an awesome deal. Or tell us what is your nearest major city and maybe we find something for you

The Keeley Mt-2 is A great choice with a tube amp.

don't get the Metal Zone I got it free from some guy redoing my parents kitchen and I told him I wouldn't use it cause it sucked for tone and he said keep it so I'm waiting to sell it at my local retail store I'm able to get $60 for it which I'm surprised cause that pedal is not even worth $20 new in my opinion. Basically just check some pedals out on the internet and check reviews too. I did that with the TS9DX and I'm happy with that pedal.

Yeah mate, I'm definitely looking into that Keeley Mt-2. Think it'd go swell with a tube amp?
