I play my Schecter Hellraiser through a Crate VTX200S 2x10 SS amp, but don't overally care for it's built-in distortion. I am looking for a good pedal that does Metallica type distortion for leads/solos, but one that wont cost me an arm and a leg. Was thinking about either the Boss Metal Zone or Boss Metal Core. Thoughts on those or any other suggestions?

Everyones gonna say this, but its absolutely true. Let me be the first-

Boss sucks, get the Metal Muff.

Trust me, its 100% true, and every UGer will tell you the same.

I've heard good things about the Metal Muff. Some people seem to like Metal Zone/Core, but others absolutely hate it. I haven't used any one of them myself.

dont get a metalzone!
from my experience the tone is thin and grainy and VERY week sounding.
Top lel.

metal muff for cheapness + quality. check out the proco rat 2 also.

Boss distortion pedals are pathetic in my opinion, and before some faggot flames me, i'm only talking about their distortion

Put it this way. My friend has Metal Muff through a Marshall MG and sounds totally badass. 'Nuff said.

AMT Extreme III. Its like a recto in a box. I think the Metal Muff is thin and fizzy soudning, kinda like the MetalZone. the MetalCore is really for Numetal and what not, with its heavily scooped sound.

how bout the digitech metal master?



I had a metal master, they are pretty awesome if you tweak the EQ right. I had to sell it off though.... !

metalzone is like a beez in a tin can, same with metal muff, but to a lesser extent imo. Well it is a hi-gain fuzz pedal.

If really want a good quality distortion in a stompbox, get a Sansamp GT2. But it is a lil on the pricy side.
