Hmmm, its a little expensive for a paperweight... That's what you'll be using it for, right?

You serious? I know everyone hates anything with the word 'metal' in it, but the Metal Muff is a good pedal.

Haha, my point wasn't that its a bad pedal, but that without knowing what he wants to use it for how can we tell?

I've always had my roland micro cube, but i'm building my own tube amp at the moment, so for that I need a dist pedal. So I'm going to tell people to get me that for christmas, but I need to decide which model first.

I mean genres, bands, songs even. What type of amp are you building and what sound do you want to get from it with this distortion pedal.

As with all things UG, the better info you give us the better info we give you.

Well, I play mostly metallica and paul gilbert shreds and stuff. I just want a good pedal, good for both metal chords and soloing.

The metal muff should get you these sounds just fine. My personal advice, get the one with top boost...I used it quite a bit, and the I liked the EQ better on that one that the other models. I would try tracking down a used one...maybe on ebay...before you drop the cash on a brand new one. And, like with all gear, try one out first if you can. As you can tell by this thread...its not everybody's favorite pedal.

However, it is much better than the Boss Metal Zone.

that pedal will give you a good range of tones, if you get the one with top boost. ive desired one of these for ages, but always wanted other stuff over it because its not a priority. but this pedal does have a lot of tone. and it wont disappoint you, e.g boss metal zone.

It sounds damn good boosting a tube amp, especially if you have, say, a JCM 800 and want to take it beyond thrash territory.

Buddy of mine used one through a little SS amp, and it didn't sound very good. Maybe something like my Ampeg would sound a bit better, but without the tubes it gets tinny I thought.
