Ive got a peavey valveking 112 and I will probly have another tube amp that i will be wanting a more metalish sound. What is a overdrive pedal that is good to push a amp to a good metal sound?

i use a TS808 with my blues junior w/ metal muff.

nice classic distortion on top of the ripping metal.

a friend of mine, a real metalhead uses an digitech metal-anything, some kind of black disk-stompbox and a boss metalzone
but james root from slipknot and stone sour even uses a boss od-2 overdrive!!

This is true, however they use the boos infront of Bogner Uberschalls and Triple Rectifiers.

No Question. B/c you have a tube amp already. Get the Damage Control Solid Metal. Its definitly what your looking for.

Dude, I have the 112 and got the Visual Sounds Jekyll & Hyde three days ago. This thing is amazing. You can get (almost) any tone for any style of music great on it. It will do metal awesomely. It has two pedals in one. The Jekyll side is a llittle higher gain TS808, and the Hyde side is an awesome sounding distortion. You can use them separately or together for endless possibilities.

I know that sounds like I work for VS, but I don't. I'm just a happy customer.

when i was looking for an overdrive and distortion pedal, i tried the jekyll and hide, since it came with both. The overdrive is nice, very TS-like, but the downfall was the distortion, it sounded too thin and not enough punch

if you want to push the tubes further, combined with your amp's overdrive, you can get a transparent OD, like skreddy screwdriver, or the RC series, tried those before and its superb at what it does, but then again, boutique stuff tends to be a lil pricy. You can get the a TS if you dont mind the mid hump added to your tone. The DX or TS7 would it good coz you can turn on the hot switch, with more gain.
