i own a metalzone... and its good if you know how to eq... people say it sucks... but i think its decent if you eq it right... along with the amp you're running through...
Absolutely horrid. A DS-2 or two OD pedals on at the same time (preferred) will sound much better.

It's this bad:


that bad. I just measured its bad.
I'm not racist.

I hate everyone the same.

To make it sound good you need an EQ pedal, or use an overdrive after it to beef it up a little. It sounds very shrill on its own. You can get the same sound with a nice distortion + overdrive combo.

Dude skip it. Seriously, most everyone who thinks they like it agree that it "only sounds good with a good amp" or it "only sounds good with an EQ pedal". Its like...'why dont you just buy a pedal that sounds good alone?'
Thanks guys.

So would a Turbo Distortion be ok?
