First of all vs threads aren't allowed. If you asked "which of these is better for metalcore etc" it would be better. That being said I really have no love for either one imo those bands 90% of their distortion from the amps

The MT-2 is better, but they both suck giant dong stock. You can, however, mod the MT-2 to become a great pedal.

[quote="'[BurnTheDusk"]']Boss pedals may be built like tanks but I would rather buy a cardboard box that is on my side than pay for a tank that is working against me.
There both poop to me. What's your budget for a distortion pedal, and what's your current amp?
a genz benz diablo 100 watt half stack.
gibson white v
and soon to be a warmoth custom with a floyd, soloist body, d'activators
I think the Genz Benz should be able to get all the distortion you need. If you really need more , you could get a tube screamer or some other overdrive.

I've only used the el diablo once but it was pretty decent I think a boost or OD would be much better than an all out distortion

could you name a decent pedal?
There's literally hundreds of pure "boost" pedals.

You can get away with eqs, using tube screamers, bad monkeys, sonic maximizers, fuzz boxes, rats, big/little muffs.

You have an el diablo and need more "brutalz"? You sure you're setting up the eq right?
