Ok so I just found out that Mattias Eklundh uses a Fatal Tube Distortion Pedal.

Check this video for his tone. http://youtube.com/watch?v=Vxq0xvSJojw

Im actually thinking of purchasing this pedal because of the warm tone it gives off in the video. I have a MT-2 Metal Zone and the sound on it just isnt cutting it for me. Does anyone have any experiance with this pedal? Good/bad? Is it worth it?

Here are some reviews of this product.

Well...I hate to say this, but a nice pedal with a modelling amp isn't gonna do much for you. A modelling amp kind of strips down the tone, and the adds all the modelling crap whatever on.
The pedal will be far less effective than it is with his setup.

hrmm..it may sound good it may not. i really have no idea if a Cube takes pedals well...especially super high distortion pedals.

on a different note...that dude in that video is HELLA WIERD!

Well. It would probably be a step up from my MT-2. The thiness on that pedal makes me cringe.

How do you plan to get your hands on such a pedal?


Internet. Just look at the websites I posted.

The Roland amps are really bad at taking pedals. I know from experience. I'd ditch the amp first.

Here are some samples: http://amtelectronics.com/products/product_pages/fatal.html

Since I live here, I bought this pedal (FT) in a store for $70. Actually it's an overdrive, not a distortion. I grew really dissapointed later with that pedal; it was toooo dull compared to any other pedals I had; very inexpressive, sounded like a toy for kids. And next weak I returned that one in the store and bought an AMT DistStation-2.

After a month I sold it too. I think the problem can be that they make a fixed filter that plays the role of the speakersimulator, so the best way is to use it in line.

I'm not going to have anything of the AMT any more, though they're now working on a double tube distortion and the price they promise will be aroung $170 only for the two-tube pedal. Some people enjoy the AMT Astral Tube. It doesn't mean that my opinion must be deciding if you're going to get it; many people like the FT.

If you've any questions to them, I can ask them on their fourm if you like.

If you want to feed a distortin or modelling pedal into the cube use the AUX IN input (usually reserved from drum machine, etc) it's a line - in input but it's very transparent, it doesn't flavour anything that's coming in through it. but it'll make most disto pedals sound pretty nasty.
