Im looking to upgrade my mt2 for a nice metal distortion sound. If I buy a pedal, I want a good one, not a midrange mediocre one like a metal master or digitech death metal ect. I would like the distortions in a expensive pedal board like a gt8 or whatever. But I have no interest in the 300 other effects so I don't see the point of purchasing one of those. I was looking a maxon pedals, but im looking for other recomendations. Money is not really an issue (within reason of course) as long as it doesn't cost the same as a stack lol. Also, is it worth the money for a boutique pedal?

my amp is a marshall avt 275 as well.
Read my post. Not this.

well i think a nice overdrive is worth it.......i jsut spent 250$ on a fulltone fulldrive 2 custom shop mosfet edition.....this thing was worth every ****ing penny but dont get your hopes up for getting one, they are 8 months back ordered and EXTREMELY HARD TO FIND, nearly impossible to be exact.

Your better off buying another amp
My suggestion? Sell your marshall for about $400-$500... Should be enough to get you a REAL tube amp IMO

Sell the Marshall, chip in some more money, and buy a nice tube amp. Use the rest on a botique OD pedal, instead of distortion.

2nd^

I have a $200 fuzz pedal that sounds amazing. It's worth the money once you upgrade your amp.

And then God came down from his silver throne
And said, 'Honey, that water ain't free

Everyone's right. You don't really need a new pedal but a new amp. I had an AVT100 and once you play a good tube amp you'll see that the amp stinks.

Anyway to answer your question. Go for a Line 6 Uber Metal set the thing to pulverize and that'll give you a good fat metal sound. There's not really much point in the more expensive distortion pedals as you wont hear them clearly through your amp. Personally I think the Uber is one of the best anyway.

Gibson Gothic Flying V
Engl Screamer Combo
Maxon OD-9
Squier 10w amp

Yeah - a new tube amp would be a better way to go, but here are some good distortion pedals anyway;

Rocktron Silver Dragon,
Mxr Doubleshot,
And have a look at some tonebones!

Good luck
