The majority of what I play is metalcore thrash, usually in drop c/d standard. I'm playing through a Behringer GX210 V-Tone. Need some more kick. Also looking at digitech RP pedals, maybe 155?

definitely not a big muff...

mxr fullbore metal sounds like crap. i would pick up a barber dirty bomb, or do it tr00 thrash and get either a tubescreamer or a rat.

Er, I meant metal muff. Sorry. I called GC looking for used metal muffs and the dude tried convincing me to buy the fullbore. Said it had more gain out of "every pedal ever made." His horrid attempts at pitching a product kinda turned me off on it but the sucker in me let my mind wander and perhaps.. believe a salesmen. :O

The fullbore metal pedal is terrible. Big muffs aren't what your looking for either. The digitech metal master is a great pedal. Check that one out.

I actually meant the metal muff. To be specific, Electro Harmonix Metal Muff with Top Boost.

I've heard mixed reviews of them. I've personally have never played them, so i would advise you to play one if you can. I know the metal master is good because my friend has one.

NOT the Metal Zone--I played one of those for a long time and it was not good at all, I got a similar but tighter sound out of a BBE American Metal that cost less than half as much. Other than that, I don't really know.

Well I like the metal muff. Very versatile for the price. And out of that list I have played the Metal zone (can get 1 or 2 nice tones but besides that it sucks) and the digitech.

I would still take the metal muff. If u take some time and learn how to tweak it it's pretty good.

What's your budget? Look into some of Keeley and Analogman Modded DS1s and MT2s.

This. A thousand times this. While I don't have too much say in this (only distortion I owned before this was a Boss OS-2), the TL-2 is amazing. It can get a good range of some amazing distortions. I've tried out other distortions at Guitar Center and such, but the TL-2 is the best to me. It also sounds amazing with other pedals, unlike my OS-2 which didn't sound bad with other pedals, but not as good as the TL-2.

But get some other opinions, too. Like I said, I don't really have a lot of experience giving distortions through their runs.
