Hey, anyone here use a boost pedal for playing metal? I'm looking at the MXR boost pedal... seems simple and seems like it would work. I want more more more more gain and power. Does it work with solid state amps?
No boosts or overdrives work that great with solid state amps in my experience, they just don't work the same way they do on valve amps, you're best off getting a distortion pedal.
