i've recently been looking for a decent metal-ish pedal, and the guy at my local guitar store has put me in a position where i'm basically choosing between the ehx pocket (or micro) metal muff or the boss metal core (or metal zone)

heeeeeeellllllllllllllllllllllllpppppppppppp

The Boss Metal Zone is much more versatile and has better EQ variation capabilities. You can only get one serious type of tone out of the Metal Core. I have both and I hardly use the ML-2 anymore.

Although, now that I have a tube amp, I don't use any distortion pedals. The natural tone from an overdriven tube amplifier is much more responsive, dynamic, clear and "non-digital" than any of those pedals. Chords sound terrible and muddy with the ML-2 and MT-2.
