I know this pedal is old, but it's the only one i got and it's still great, i managed to get Metallica's distortion (suitable for all of their songs) and solos, like fade to black's both solos, acoustic sounds, master of puppets instrumental part both distortion and acoustic.
Just posting this to help thos epeople who have the BOSS GT pedals (i'm guessing BOSS GT-8 is similiar to BOSS GT-3 right just with more effects and ****)

So here are the settings:


Metallica Distortion:

Using:

Comp/LM : Limter ON

OD/DS: OverDrive/Dist ON > Type Metal 1 > Drive 30 > Bass +21 > Treble +28 > Level 50

Preamp/SP Sim: Preamp ON > Type JC-120 > Volume 35 > Bass 50 > Middle 50 > Treble 50 > Presence 0 > Master 80 > Bright OFF > Gain Middle

Fade to Black Last Solo:
Same settings as Fade to Black First solo, just add,

I'll be posting master of puppets interlude settings, sanitarium settings later on and maybe some sounds so you can hear how close it is to metallica's. Hope this helped
