Or a keeley modded MT-2

All much better!

i'm using~it's great
#11
I have a DS-1, MT-2, and an Ibanez Dist pedal (Can't remember the model #). The MT-2 Is by far better than anything else I've used...

I reccomend it.
#12
I didn't like the MT-2 when I owned it. It may have been because it was on my old SS amps, but it sounded so thin. There was no "umph" behind it. It seemed like I had turned treble all the way up and mids and bass down but I didn't.
#13
is the keeley mod much better than the stock mt-2 ? and as any one herd of a mt-2 whith a devils fx mod.
#15
im a big advocate of the EH Metal Muff, it sounds way bigger and fuller than the MT-2 (which has a nasty harsh electronic sound) the keeley modded ones are a little better though.

Dude the boss MT-2 hands down is the best. Def buy it.


No it's not and don't. The MT-2 is one of the worst pedals on the market.
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.

so what is the best


"Best" is largely subjective......largely, but not completely (the MT-2 is crap, doesn't matter what you think...it's crap) Try a Metal Muff or an Uber-Metal, just stay the hell away from the MT-2. Or better yet, buy a tube amp.

x2 - exactly! This pedal has 2 in built 12ax7's! Listen to the soundclips at the damage control website, or if you can't afford that - look at an MXR doubleshot or a rocktron Silver Dragon - I have one (Rocktron) and its fantastic for metal. If you want more details either repost or PM me.

Good Luck,

yes go with the metal muff.im a MT-2 fan. but at loud levels its tough to get a good sound where the metal muff does get a good (high gain) sound.
#26
yeah those damage control ones are the best
but there 200-300 dollars

i've heard great things form the uber metal, and that's about it
#28
ok let me fix this thread because there are so many horrible suggestions let me go through a list of what is crap.

CRAP
Boss MT-2
Digitech metal master basically anything by digitech
Line 6 Uber metal

Mediocre
Rocktron Silver Dragon
MXR double Shot
MXR Dime Distortion

Very good
Maxon DS-9 Sonic Distortion
VS Jekyl and Hyde
Mesa V-Twin
The Demonizizers

The pedals on the crap list are absolute garbage digital sounding sound like crap basically

The pedals on the mediocre list arent bad but there are much better

The pedals in the last list are all amazing and will get you very good distortion.

I have fixed the thread you are welcome i will answer any questions youve got

Very good
Maxon DS-9 Sonic Distortion
VS Jekyl and Hyde
Mesa V-Twin
The Demonizizers

Those ones.. the Mesa is like a guitar head by itself haha it looks so nice.

With the Demonizer and or the Mesa's price I could buy a new amp. lol

The SD-9 Sonic Distortion is the only affordable one, but the sound clips I heard are "mediocre-not good"

Personally, I'd say the best combination for any tone is the Boss DS-1 and an EQ pedal, but that's jsut me. Of the ones listed that I've tried, the Uber Metal is the only one I've ever found to have a useable tone.

i liked the sound of the mesa boogie v twin pedal..........absolutely killer sounding, but seriously expensive


Technically, it's a preamp, and not a distortion pedal. I used to own one, and I did enjoy it. I knew that a tube preamp means nothing if you have solid state power, but ordered it anyway. I used it as a preamp jacked directly into my Peavey Bandit's power amp. I really enjoyed the sound. It wasn't as huge of an 'improvement'; (and I use that term loosely) as I expected a $300 pedal to be, but it was nice.

The real eye (ear) opener occurred when I took the pedal to a friend's house and tried it in his JCM 900 2 x 12 combo and his other guitarist's Mesa Recto half stack. The difference was amazing. It sounded huge and completely different than on my amp. Hearing this thing dancing with tube power made me reconsider my purchase. In the end, I sold the V-Twin, since I really wasn't getting my money's worth out of it thru my rig.

So unless you're planning on running your shìt thru tube power, spending bug bucks on tube preamps or tube distortion is a waste of money.
