The meatl amster is about $80 and the death metal about $50 quite a big difference, but you only pay for what you get, the meatl master is deffintly worth paying extra.

Jeez... if your house was on fire, what would you do? Phone the fire department, or go on UG and ask us what to do?
Get a BOSS Metalzone, those Death metal pedals crap out on you quickly, ive had a bunch of friends say they blow out in a few months.

I wouldnt take any...especially the MT-2...its a horible sounding pedal...but same with 99.99% of all pedals that say "metal" on them.

I have a Death Metal. I think new is 50.

Its a good pedal, people complain about it having no gain, but you could use your guitar volume to adjust it.

I've had mine for a while now, the only complaint is that its a battery sucker.. keep some spares.
i got an ac adaptor , it works for my pedal i got now, my only worries is if the Metal Master Of Death Metal Dont have ac inputs lol. i really took an interest in the metal master

if you can, try out a Line 6 Über Metal (I just bought one second hand from a friend).
it has a built-in noise gate (I assure you, no feedback whatsoever if you put the gate on 2)
pinch harmonics just flow out without any problems!

of course, a cranked high gain tube amp will always beat any distortion or overdrive pedal out there...
i have the metal master. i like the way it sounds but it sounds real digital. i only use it for like BFMV or COB though cuz i have a marshall and the gain on there does the job for metallica or slayer especially when u throw a EQ pedal in front of it.

I've owned both. I'm not a huge fan of either, but the Death Metal is definitely more versatile. Don't be fooled by the Metal Masters little morph knob, it's nothing more than a mid control. The Metal Master is one of the only pedals I've come across where I've heard someone else play it and been able to say "Well that's a digital pedal"

That said...go for the Line 6 Uber Metal.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

well, the death metal sucks ass, but the metal master is worth it! the boss metal sounds really muddy.

I am torn between the Metal Master and Uber Metal. I play a lot of SOAD. I am not sure which one to get.
