Yeah, i got a crate vtx212b, and i find the distortion kind of... yeah, to "mr nice guy" kind. I want a overdriven hard, darker sound, like Zakk Wylde or Pantera, something overdistoreted. So any suggestions on pedals and stuff that would help?

Crates themselves never have had the 'Oooomph' type distortiong on the ones I've used...
People will probably recommend ad MT2/DS1 or something of that description around on these forums.

The Maxon distortion master is quite a nice pedal although I'm not certain on the price,
It gives plenty growl and heavy attack.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

Overdrive pedal such as a tubescreamer or my favorite Visual Sounds Jekyll & Hyde.

Mite be good to get a better amp if you haven't got a good distortion on that, I have a peavy bandit and the only pedals i use are delay, chorus, compressor, reverb. So that might be a good idea, other wise if ya dont mind forkin out £150 then a Line 6 POD XT will give you a range of sounds.

Generally any pedal that has "Metal" in the name would be sufficient for what you're looking for. Try an MT-2, Metalzone, or Metal Muff.

Yeah, i know, but i got into bls and heavy stuff like that after i bought my amp and i dont think i will buy a new one in a while, so i need a pedal who can get the same sound. Would it help to get a distortion pedal and a overdrive and run trough both at the same time?
