SO I just bought a MESA/BOOGIE DUal Rectifier and it sounds awesome. I play a lot of everything and this was just perfect for it all. I've heard that a lot of metal bands use this amp. I know that Kirk Hammett uses these and when i played it didn't seem quite as distorted as it does when I hear Metallica albums. What is Kirk doing/using to get a more metal sound out of this amp?

Kirk uses a tubescreamer for most solos.

Kirk Hammet uses an Ibanez TS9 with his amp's disortion. Plus, he gets a little bit of gain from his EMG pickups as well.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

He gets a lot of bite from the EMGs he uses...but I dont think he uses as much distortion as everyone thinks...

^ aye. i mean you should easily be able to get to metallica levels of gain with a recto.
