i was looking at a tubescreamer and i dont know if it would help out my sound and give me a better harmonix sound. i play metal i dont know when other people say that this pedal is great for 80's sort of stuff or like metalcoreish type metal.
Wrong forum (try GG&A, I assume the mods will move it for you ), but the Tubescreamer makes a great boost if you're using a tube amp that needs a push. If you're using a solid state amp, it won't really help for metal (generally)

Which Tubescreamer were you looking at? The TS7, TS9, TS9DX or TS808? And what amp are you using?
There really for blues, but i suppose they world work for metal with the right settings..
