yeah man just get a metal muff, i bought one today to replace my digitech metal master and it is really badass. However to improve the tone of your boss (i dont have one myself so ill be really genneral) is to lower the treble a bit and jack up your mids (lower the mids on your amp to compensate a bit though or else it will sound muddy). Also you can add a lot of life to the sound of digital pedals by adding some reverb (preferably real spring reverb).

Any type of metal pedal will always sound cold and sterile, its the facts of life.
Ibanez -> Peavey -> Eardrums

Apparently I'm on some list of people to listen to..?

1st and 2 equalizer?

that isnt true I just got a Metal Muff and it doesnt sound sterile at all, the Rocktron Silver Dragon sounds really good too, as does the new pedal that krank has out. But a lot of them (i.e. Boss Metal Zone Digitech Metal Master and the newer proco rats) do sound really bad.

That's usually the reaction of people to the MT-2 after they get more experience. Noobs love these things because they wrap your sound in a thick, fuzzy blanket of distortion. It covers small fückups, sloppy notes, etc and to a noob, it's the shìt because it actually DOES make them sound better.

But once these noobs start actually knowing how to play and can actually play chords and notes clean(er), they start to notice how dry and sterile and overly fuzzy the MT-2 makes them sound. And it sounds to me like you've just made that discovery. Good for you.

^^ yeahh..so besides the metal muff and silver dragon..what are some good ones.
im actually very serious about my tone, and i bought a bass amp to suit what i like.
so price isnt much of an object, but lets say...300 max.

the original Big Muff can do some cool ****, but its a really loose fuzzy distortion, its very heavy though. Krank just came out with a new pedal called Distortus Maximus thats supposed to be able to emulate thier amps fairly well, guitar world gave it a rave review but i havent tried it personally.

ill try out the krank pedal wherever they have it.

Just something I want to share with some of you.

More distortion does not make metal, and certainly does not make good metal. Good metal is about mechanical guitar playing (not necessarily technical, but still physically demanding). Lately ive noticed that turning the distortion up higher on my amp only blurs the lines of my notes when im playing fast. Which means im lacking definitition. It makes my playing SOUND sloppy when its anything but.

Its a crisper tighter distortion for more odern style metal, versus the standard Big Muffs heavy loose fuzzy distotion, Big Muffs are great for stuff like Black Sabbath and doom metal.

^ Did he say he played metal through a fender blues amp? Belt up.
1) Amp disortions would win over crappy toneless dirtboxes
2) Playing with too much gain will a) Suck your guitar's tone away b) You wont be able to hear yourself playing clearly c) Your tone will be buzzy fizzy noisey unispiring mush.

And yes the fender blues juniors would pwn the big muffs and what not.

thats a total matter of opinion, i personally prefer stompbox distortion over straight tube amp distortion half the time.

ehh tubes are nice and all, but stomp boxes can add a good variety, thats why most players use both. I actually like to use my distortion pedals to accent my tube distortion so you dont just get the generic tube tone.

Just 'cause a pedal has the word 'metal' doesn't mean it's the sh*t

thats very true, the boss metal zone blows, the digitech metal master isnt much better.

I play in a metal band, and I use NO pedals.... not even a wah.

you dont need pedals to play great metal, just some talent.
