Depends on your other gear and what styles you're into. I bought one without properly testing it first, and later realized it doesn't suit me at all. Actually, I don't understand why this pedal receives so much praise.
Its a good pedal, I liked the tones....But the only niggle is that top-boost jobbie. All i got from that was waaay too much gain and horrible feedback.
The Nano version is meant to be better

Me either. This seems to be the pedal of choice around here for some reason. When I worked at a music store I tried to steer people away from this pedal and check out other things. A lot of people ended up returning the Metal Muff with Top Boost because they kept dieing. We even got a demo Metal Muff from EHX for the store and the thing died within a couple days. Its got a tight distortion, but it sounds thin and fizzy. There's way too much gain on tap, past 12 o'clock and this thing sounds like a mess. I know I've said this many times on here, the Top Boost is a joke.
