Are there pedals to boost the gain ontop of a distortion pedal such as the boss metal core? or am i pretty much stuck to if wanting a heavier sound buying a pedal more than $100
The metal core and your amp should have all the gain you need. It'll sound like crap, but have loads of gain

i doubt its more gain you need. i dont think pedals can be boosted like amps (not digital ones anyway). do you have an EQ pedal in your effects loop? a good bass/treble boost with an eq pedal is key to getting a good heavy sound. you have more than enough actual gain in that pedal.

what's your gear?

I haven't tried it but i doubt the problem is that the ml2 doesn't have enough gain.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Et tu, br00tz?
Some pedals like the Metalzone have all the gain you need. There is also a 'boost' pedal that I believe does something with the pick up.
search google using with terms like "gain stacking" or "stacking gain pedals"...

Some pedals can be boosted and sound good, but...
ok secondary question because im gonna get an eq..would u plug into the distortion from the guitar n then the eq, or backwords?
EQ's work best in the FX loop.
