Why would you use a TS and an SD-1? They're both overdrives, whereas the Metal Muff is a distortion unit.


Edit: "Better" doesn't exist, and decisions about your tone will be subjective. Try some gear, and choose for yourself.

Tool.

Personally, I love my SD-1 running through a solid distortion. I would never use it on its own, and I wouldn't run a distortion alone either. I can't comment on either the Metal Muff, or TS, as I've never tried either. Most fanboys would probably say that a MM + TS combo would be the holy grail, but getting to a shop and trying everything is your best bet. Also, don't forget that an overdrive will alter the dynamics of your tone more through a tube amp, compared to a solid state. Through a solid state, the overdrive will just add a bunch more input gain, and sound fizzy, but through a tube, it'll add a new, more responsive level to your tone, as the tubes are pushed harder. These are all things that you can only hear and feel by trying gear.
