Is there a universally/unambiguously considered best metal effects pedal less than 50 USD (preferably new, though I'm open-minded to suggestions for that price used if the suggestion is high quality enough)?

#1
As a prelude, I didn't search the forums at all preceding typing this post, so if this question has been asked and pretty thoroughly answered in the past I apologize for any redundancy. I've never owned any effects pedals in the past, and recently I've gotten much more into metal than I had been when younger so I thought it seemed logical for me to purchase at least one metal effect pedal. I've demoed at least four unique models on youtube, and for the most part the quality has seemed pretty much analogous as far as unique brands/models go, though what impressed me the most if I had to make reference to that was the pocket metal muff which I expect to be the most cost effective as far as that sub-category of pedals go. While browsing online the seemingly most cost effective heavy metal distortion pedal is the dan electro brand pedal, though I want a good balance of cost effectiveness and quality not just the former. Obviously some recommendations/advice about what's in my best interest as far as this purchase goes would be appreciated, as I have little practical experience as already stated and I want some advice from someone who has a lot of experience with these types of products. Provided I get a decent amount of helpful responses, thanks in advance!

The Pocket Metal Muff is a good buy, but there may be a better option.

What is your current rig?

No.

Such a refreshingly concise answer.

Pretty much no, as dspellman said.

That being said, some pedals are better than others.

what amp and guitar are you using?

Yes.

Questions like this will only get opinions and you know what they say about opinions!

A question like this will be subject to personal taste therefore difficult to get a universal/unambiguous answer.

So my answer is: No

FWIW I prefer to use my amp's gain with a TS9 for a boost.

No, no universally accepted unit, I would suggest the Digitech MetalMaster - could be had used for under your budget and has speaker emulated output if you want to run headphones from it or can help if the amp you are running it into is not that great.

ok clearly this thread is going no where real fast. OP try again only this time give us a little more to work with. what type of metal sounds do you want. amp being used etc.

there is no pedal that is universally the answer for anything and there never will be.
