he said for around a 100$ dollars, isnt te Jekyl and Hyde like 200?

EDIT: my bad you said used.

Try finding a pedal with a 12ax7 tube in it

^^^That's why he suggested a used one.

Are you playing a SS or a tube amp?

EDIT: Now i see your edit.

what about these behringer effects pedals.
they only cost about £30 but they are awesome.
i got two,
ultra distortion and blues overdrive.
i use distortion for lead and overdrive for rhythm.

has anyone tried the Keeley MT-2? I see them go cheap on eBay pretty consistently, but I've never tried one. Just curious.

if you like the seemingly digital sounding gain, you could try a line 6 uber metal, they can give some really nice high gain sounds.

^^ I have a DS1 .... Personally I think it sounds bad through a transistor amp. If you have a nice tube amp, the overdrive should be decent enough anyway.

the ds-1 is good. but not for lamb of god or god forbid type tones, i dont know why so many people have suggested that and the metal zone, neither are close to that kind of tone.

god forbid uses krank amps, and krank has a new pedal out the "distortus maximus" and it's pretty expensive used but you should be able to snag a used one for 100 bucks.

Go for the Keely Modded Metal Zone

Good luck finding a used Jeykll and Hyde (unless MAYBE ebay which gets complicated)

Go proco

Im going to be odering a Keeley soon, I'l see how good it sounds. but I must say it gets great reviews all around, just chech out harmony-central, plus the sound clips on the site sound great compared to a standard MT2.

It even looks cooler, and is pretty cheap. Only $150, or $75 if you supply the Metal Zone for him to mod.

If you can get a MT2 for cheaper than 75$ used the nit could be worth it, but you might as well get a new one. Then again Keeleys mod probably voids the gaurentee right?
