Okay, so I can get a decent metal tone playing through my ESP with 81's and a valveking, but it doesn't have quite as much gain as I want. I think it would be cool to get a pedal to boost it, but I'm not sure which one. Any suggestions? I want a thrash/melodic death metal sort of tone.
Maxon OD9, Maxon OD808, Boss SD-1 Keeley modded would be my recommendations

oh my.
you poor soul.
i'll go and slit my wrists for you so you dont have to.

look for pedals made solely for boosting if you like your tone, but jsut want more gain.
they wont color sound as much.
alot of the tubescreamer clones mentioned above add alot of mids.
