Ok so here's what happened.

I skipped school today and went to the music store. I get there, and end up trying a digitech Metal Master distortion petal. Anways, it sounds awesome in the store. I bring it home, plug it in, and shit my pants. It sounds AWFUL!!! What happened??? It sounds tinny and flat, and sometimes buzzes. WTF>>>??? someone help me.

So I just woke up sitting in my desk chair, with my bong on the desk in a bunch of little pieces and my hand super glued to my penis. Speculations as to what the hell just happened and how to unglue my hand from my member would be appreciated.

Its your amp or your guitar.
An ibanez in the store through a mesa with the MM is not gonna sound the same with a piece of plywood through a PA speaker.

well if your battery dies sometimes your pedals sound like crap. get an AV, AC, whatever adapter thing and use that for power. i love my metal master.

I'm playing it thru a Fender Vibro Champ Tube amp w/ an Agile LP-2500, I have no idea what it is....I bought new cables and everything....

It's not even heavy enough disortion! I have no clue...

I agree with the guy about the metal muff They kick ass!
A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who aren't close-minded morons.

From what year is yours?

IMO you should return that metal master ASAP.

I have a friend who returned 3 that didn't work, and finally broke down and bought a Metal Zone (yeah, big improvement, lol.)

Seriously, get a Muff, or a RAT. I love my Turbo Rat, great heavy distortion.

^^ To Mr Hankey

Yep, I've got a champ . Pretty sweet little amps. Mine's a '76 Silverface

I got mine from a guy who was trying to wire it to his truck's sound system....lol. He didn't know anything about it and sold it to me for 15 bucks. Still has the original tubes and everything.

To everyone else, I put a new battery in, that fixed it. It's great now. The only problem I've got is when I use the bridge pickup and the MORPH knob is past 12 o'clock I get that extremely trebly "Icicle in The Ear" tone...but I just switch into the Middle and it warms up a little...

I think the problem with that is in the amp not having EQ, but it's not major. I just use the champ for practice/jamming with friends.

Well, thanks everyone for helping me with that...

I can't believe it was just the battery.....lol...I feel retarded now.

It's not your amp, it's mine, and I'll do whatever I want with it. The pedal sounds better than anything else they had in the store (and I literally tried them all) besides the TS9, but it wasn't "heavy" enough. If anyone should be feeling sad about it, it would be me. (and I'm not, it sounds amazing).
