Lets be straight. My amp is a solid state. It's good for a solid state. Believe me, if a valve amp were at all feasible I would wait a year or even two years for it. I need more gain and could easily handle this with nice results if my amp was a tube amp. I think a pedal into my clean channel would be the ticket for the heavier sounds I can't achieve with just my amps lead channel. I can handle clean, classic rock, bluesy, and hardrock sounds with my amp. So I want a pedal that can handle the heavier more metal oriented stuff. That sorta gain where you can craft chugging metal rhythm, searing riffs, and brutal pinch harmonics. My budget is around $100 or less.

^ no, just no. that pedal is as awful as a stock metalzone, sorry to burst your bubble. people push that **** too much on here and half of the people who pimp it to people have never played it. dont burn me at the stake here but the ****ing KRANK pedal sounds better than the metal muff. if that doesnt say anything to you, well then.......

It's not an inflexible budget. If there's something good for $140 I can stretch. I'll just have to wait longer.
