Im looking for some good pedals that have extreme gain and are good for death metal and etc. I have been recommended Digitech LiveWire TL-2 Distortions or whatever they are called and Ive been trying to check out Boss Metal Zones.

DOD AMERICAN METAL.

I like the DOD Grind pedal too. But, it's got only a couple of good sounds along with a lot of awesomely bad ones.

Boss MD-2 is a cheap option. The independant top and bottom tone knobs are great for getting a good metal tones.

I think they're discontinued now but you pick one up off ebay for about £40
Schecter C-1 Hellraiser Fr
Peavey 6505+ 112

Yeah it is pretty tinny, but I like that sound for hard metal for some reason. Maybe another option would be an EH Metal Muff, top boosting for leads, with an MXR 10 band shaping it and adding some gain.

You must also be a fan of people using wasp nests as amps... The demo of that sounds like crap and PGS usually has good sound demos. Comments don't sound too promising, either...

TS, keep your eyes out for used pedals. You can find great deals.
#21
Fullbore Metal is terrible, the TL2 is terrible, the Metalcore is terrible...

Pretty much anything that you can buy at GC that is labeled as "metal" is going to sound like shit stock.

Send that Metalzone in for a Keeley treatment, and you'll never want another high gain pedal again. Keeley's and Monte Allum's mods for the MT2 are the best.

Or you could use an Overdrive from your amp and boost, not horrid tone from some piece of junk pedal....

Or, if he doesn't have:

a) a tube amp
b) a high gain tube amp
c) a high gain amp in general
d) an amp that will actually let the overdrive be used how its supposed to

...then it won't really make a difference. Even the best overdrive won't turn a dimed Fender Twin Reverb into a high gain metal monster. Which is obviously what he's looking for.

Have you ever played a Keeley modded Metalzone? It doesn't sound like a cheap pedal.
It actually sounds good.

Usually I'd agree with you. But if you don't have a high gain amp, or a high gain tube amp at that (to make the OD actually worth something), then the most you can get is thrash at best.

The boss metal zone is crap, while the metal core is good for a good trebly(in a good way) high gain. I.e. Entombed

there's a demo of a boosted Twin Reverb in my laptop, it's not 5150 at 10 level gain, but it's still something that makes you go "woah that's a twin reverb what the heck?"
