Everything depends on the sounds you want to achieve and the money you wanna spend.

What sounds do you want to achieve and how much money do you want to spend?
Also what gear do you already have?

I have up to £350 to spend ,
I have a Pro co rat 2 , spark tc boost with - gain - bass -treble- level, I like to play Rock and metal and do solo and shredding . So far eveything is true by pass in my rig and I would like to add in a buffer or a pedal that is not true by pass to act as a buffer and what ever eles is does .

i recently bought a Jamman solo XT looper and am very happy with it. would highly recommend it but i have not tried many loopers to compare it to.

If you want a plain tubescreamer, then go with a TS9. If you're looking for a tubescreamer in a more generic sense (overdrive) check out the Fulltone OCD, FD2, FD3, EHX Hot Tubes, Muff, Soul Food... options are literally endless. People on here seem pretty into the DigiTech Bad Monkey. You could also check out the Mooer Green Mile or Hustle Overdrive.

For delay, you also have also endless options. You can go with a Hardwire DL-8 which is a delay and looper, EHX Memory Toy/Boy, MXR Carbon Copy, Malekko 616 Ekko, TC Flashback (digital delay with MANY options).

For a tubescreamer type pedal, check out the Digitech Bad Monkey - it's much cheaper than the Ibanez and sounds as good. It will leave more money in the budget for the other things you're thinking of buying.

Also, what amp do you have?

Can anyone recommend a good looper, tubescreamer, delay, or other pedals for rock and metal?

C:

Looper: Digitech's Jamman or TC Electronics Ditto
Tubescreamer: Ibanez Tubesceamer, EHX Soul Food (has a buffer in it as well)
Delay: EHX Memory Man/Boy/Toy, Boss DD-7

The Visual Sound Jekyll & Hyde is a nice OD/Dist pedal that incorporates a TubeScreamer design:

http://www.guitarpedalshq.com/reviews/visual-sound-jekyll-and-hyde-overdrive-pedal-review/

They're @ $140 new, but can be had for as low as $70 used:

Tube Screamer: Green Rhino. Best tone sculpting I've had in a screamer, and I've tried a lot.
Delay: Boss DD-Whichever (6? 7? lost track, to be honest).
Bought my Green Rhino used, have had it for almost a year, and its still kicking.
Charvel So-Cal (SH6TB/N, killswitch), Jackson RR5FR (TB6/Jazz, Drop C). Joyo pxl pro.
Loop1=Crybaby from hell, Boss PS-5, Seymour Duncan 805 or Green Rhino, EQD Hoof or Earthbound Audio Super Collider. Loop 1 into ISP Decimator II.
Loop 2 (FX loop)-Line6 M9, TC Spark Mini. Loop 2 into mxr 10band. All into a Peavey Triple XXX 212, Ibanez IL15.

i was gonna say, thomann has a pretty decent price on the route 808, which is the tubescreamer side (the other VS pedals are dear in europe) and which has a nice buffer in there already. might be worth considering to sort of kill two birds with one stone.

As I recall, all of the VS combo pedals with an overdrive use the tubscreamer design.

i like my jamman. TC uses shitty switches, that rules them out.
Timmy for an OD.
if you go analog for delay look into Malekko, i have the normal 616, and a 616 Lo-Fi. they SLAY the carbon copy.

VS' discontinued Double Trouble is 2 TubeScreamers in one, so you can have them set differently.

i thought the newest one used the open road (nobels odr1 cloneish i think) as the od side?

Which pedal- the VS-XO? Its a dual OD, so possibly.

http://visualsound.net/route-66-v3-series/ (my mistake, it's based on the garagetrain, not the open road I think the less middy od on the vs-ox is probably open road-based (and I'm guessing the other one in it is ts-based, from the description)).

yeah the older versions were just the tubescreamer combined with the compressor, weren't they?

Sounds about right. I swear, I love my VS pedals. The only thing that bugs me is that their line- especially the combo pedals- is as limited as it is. I'd love to see them do some more, maybe unusual ones.

I mean...what about a OD/Chorus? (Devil's Choir?) Fuzz/RTG? (Primordial Chaos?) Whatever- I want to see MOAR!

The route 808 i have seems pretty good, but it's about the only one i've seen in europe at a half-decent price. For £50 a pop they're pretty nice. Problem is most of them (and that's the single ones) are closer to double that here in europe. the double ones are normally well over £100. That's pretty expensive compared to what they go for in the USA.
