I have a Boss Metal Zone that I love but I got an offer to trade it for a Digitech Death Metal Pedal. Are they any good? Also how does it compare to a Metal Core? I know mine costs twice what his cost brand new though so if I trade Ill do it for like an extra 40 bucks or something? I just wanna know how they compare.

I had a Digitech Death Metal pedal. One of the worst distortion pedals I've ever heard. I gave it away. The Metal Zone is the best of the three, although none are very good, but that isn't the point. Keep the Metal Zone.

^This too. The hardwire pedals actually aren't bad.

what they mean is they all take a lot of fine tuning to get a good sound out of them, my old digitech death metal can get some really nice lows on it but the highs are just crap, try out all three pedals and see which one you can get the nicest sound out of and how nice the sound is

Hardwire TL-2 is better. I have experience with all of those.


This, it's also like $71 on musiciansfriend or GC.com right now. I just got one and I really love it. The barber dirty bomb is also godly.

no, I really mean they suck

i had the MT2 and i don't think it was terrible. it could really only get one or two good sounds out of it, but if those were the sounds you're looking for, it's a great pedal.

but that said, they are much better pedals.

I agree with the TS - I used to use an MT-2, and after playing with the settings for a couple of days, I actually got it to sound good.

It's definitely better than any of the offers. The Death Metal pedal is horrible imo, and the metalcore is wayy too trebly/thin. I couldn't get any desirable sounds out of that one in the time I've messed with it.

Wow, I really love the responses... "Sucks balls", "Sounds crap", "Sucks ass", and yet no good explanation why?
I guess you guys are overloaded with the "best of the best" gear so everything else than what you've got yourself sucks balls, right? Thought it was something like that yeah...
Also remember that those aren't really expensive pedals, mhm? So they are probably good for their price.

I've also seen that as good as no one likes the Line 6 spiders... What the heck do you have against it? I've got the Spider Jam 75w and it sounds very good. Yet again it's probably because "MY GEAR IS THE BEST OMFGSZ", right? Gosh...

Here are the dirt boxes in the 90 dollar range that get the job done. Metal zone, Metal muff, Son of Hyde, maybe the TL-2. Dirt boxes that suck ass. Metal core, fullbore, ubermetal. Some people may like the last three i don't .

BTW I don't like spiders i've had a lot of experience playing through them as well, they do sound crap and the only thing there passable at being is a practice amp. I've had a metal zone and my tone sucked cause i was a n00b at the time so didnt know better. My current tube combo cost me £300 on the used market and i've never spent more than £400 on a guitar to date. So shhst

the 3 of em are horrible pedals


They all blow balls, and are a complete waste of money. They should be melted down or thrown into a dumpster.

Instead, you should get an interface bundled with a program, which is cheaper and better.

I'll explain why they suck balls right now.
Their tone is terrible and generic, poor quality, and for a horrible horrible price.

You know that Metal Zone pos? I can get that effect plus over 50 more effects and amps for the same, or maybe less of a price. What does the MT-2 cost, 120 dollars?

I can get Amplitube Metal for 99 dollars.

I used to have a Metal Zone pedal, and it got the job done. I never really liked it that much, but I don't like stompbox distortion very much anyway. But it was nice to have when i was beginning. I would keep it.

I don't have any experience with the Boss pedals besides playing them in a store, and I could not for the life of me find a useable tone. No matter how I adjusted the tone stacks they both just produced the same buzzy, recycled 'metal' tone.

Now the Digitech Death Metal, what a horrible piece of garbage. I honestly don't know how, but I ended up with two of these in my possession at one time. I think someone stuck them in the back of my cab at band practice just to get rid of the things. I spent days messing with them trying to make something out of my 'good fortune', but it is just so thin and fizzy. Honestly, I ended up just taking them down to the recycling plant.

i have the digitech death metal. i think its a really good pedal. i used to have a line 6 spider amp and i thought all the on board effects were complete rubish.
