Hello, i have a boss mt2 metal zone pedal which i used to use with a mg marshall amp, but now ive got a Blackstar id core amp which is known as a modeling amp, so my question is do modeling amps like this get well with gain/distortion pedals like the metal zone, or the sound of the amp is much better than the one i can get with the amp+ pedal.
Thanks for your help in advance

I'd imagine the ID probably sounds better on its own without the MT2.
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

The Blackstar sounds much better than any sound you can get with the MT-2. I was pleasantly surprised by the ID Core when I played it.

You could use the MT-2 as an EQ/Boost by turning the Distortion off, dimimg the Level, and playing around with the tone knobs. I'm sure you could probably enhance the OD channels of the amp that way.

Also, if you actually like the sound of the MT-2, I really doubt the Blackstar is going to take pedals any worse than the MG, so just plug it in and try.

Generally, no. Really the Metal Zone does not usually get along with any amp, they are not really good units for most uses.

Lose the pedal cause it is not helping your tone.

IMO, it is just substituting one cheesegrater for another.

Setup the amp clean, kick in the distortion, see how it gets along. Then see if you can top that sound with just the amp itself.
Personally, I'd sell both...fast.
