I am looking for a pedal to give me the crunch that I need - I will be running it through a Crate Blackheart 5W Tube Amp... right now I have the Digitech Death Metal pedal but I find that its lacking in a few aspects... especially in the mids.

What do you think about the Metal Muff?

Guyatone Metal Monster? This one sounds the best from the soundclips that I heard but I don't know that it warrants double the price.

Metal Zone?

I never liked metal zone, get the boss metalcore instead, so much better

and the metal muff is godly as well

Win.
EQ is mad responsive, and you can get so many different dist tones.

Metal Muff + GE-7 = So much versatility in tone.

The Metal Muff alone has a great EQ. I love mine

im also looking at metal muff... is it good for soloing and anything besides metal?

also will it have effect on solid state amps

My favorite so far is the AMT DistMachine. I really love it. Loads of options, not too expensive. You may want to use it with a looper though as it has an always on cabinet emulation (even when the pedal is off) which changes the sound of your bypassed signal.

Cool thanks guys - anyone try out the Metal Monster? It sounded damn good on Youtube but I know there's not substitute for the real thing... it just seemed to have that kick ass heavyness without all that extra crappy noise - of course it coulda just been his amp...

What is your price range and what type of metal tones are you after?


<= $200

I am looking for a really crunchy sound without the fuzz or buzz that some pedals produce - a clean sounding heavyness if that makes sense.

any answer that is not the Metal Zone.

try out the Metal Muff, it really is something. E-H really knows how to make a product.

Metal Muff = Mids.

If you want mids, buy a Metal Muff.

I tried the Metal Master and MT-2 and both sounded scooped and thin.

Metal Muff is great for MIDS! You will love it.

EDIT: As for versatility, the softest sounds you'll get with it will be something like AC/DC or ZZ Top.

It can get that scooped metal tone (which I hate) but it only does it when YOU dial it in.

The MT-2 and Metal Master both seemed scooped no matter where I put the knobs.

Yes Mids is definitely what I'm after - not just a lot of gain with a lot of noise... sounds like this might be the one for me!

Yeah, I think you'll like it!

It has some heavy tones to it, don't get me wrong, but it keeps it's clarity really well. The notes are really defined and natural, even when you dial in a lot of gain.

I can stand 7 feet from my amp with the volume on the amp above halfway and not get any feedback when I let go of the strings. It really is a great pedal. I've never heard anything better. If I had, I wouldn't recommend it like this.
