... scuse me?

You need to buy a new amp, my friend. There is a vast world out there of great tones that can't come from a pedal alone and you're missing out on all of it.

You need a new amp. That pedal you've got there isn't exactly hot stuff either.

You may hear your pedal and think "This sounds just like (insert favorite band)!"
No, it doesn't.

(Insert favorite band)'s tone would sear through your pedal in a side by side comparison.

Rhythm in Jump. Dancing Close to You.

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.

And by "compliment", I hope you don't mean both running at the same time...
Pedals (for the most part) are solid state, it'll just get muddy if you tubescream a distortion pedal.

To all the tone freaks out there!!
Probably not a good idea, since almost any 'tone freak' will tell you to get a really nice little tube amp and a good quality overdrive.

If you want loads of crazy overdrive tones at home get Guitar Rig or something instead.

First off, what amp do you use for gigs? If it's not a tube amp then don't bother with a new pedal. Second, if you are going to buy a new pedal, DON'T use it in conjunction with that MD2. It's not a very good pedal to begin with, and distortion pedals should be used one at a time. Daisychaining them will kill your tone. As long as you have a good amp for it to drive, I would say go with an EHX Metal Muff and either sell or give away that MD2.

The MD2 is a pretty meh pedal for gigging unless you want to make out and out noise, I certainly wouldn't be looking to run anything else at the same time, apart from an EQ pedal, that would actually be a really sensible idea...


...get an EQ pedal
Actually called Mark!

Yeah, he's apparently talking about it for gigs. But he's not going to gig with a practice amp, so that means he has to buy a new amp, so he might as well get one with good tone and use his pedal only for practice.

Which means he should get him some tubes.

Wow. You're either lying or really have no idea what you play through.

First off, that made no sense whatsoever.
Secondly, You already told us you're running a 15 watt practice amp.
Thirdly, if you had tubes from either of those companies, the answer would be throw all your pedals in a fire and /thread.

Edit:
Well, distortion pedals is what I meant.

Sigged.
this is just like watching a train wreck.

iI wouldn't be so bad if he invited "everyone who loves muddy distortion!"
But no, he invited the tone freaks.

Disclaimer:
I do not own tubes, i just severely hate solid state and can't afford a tube head right now because I wrecked my car.
I hate my Metal master.

i have the MT-2 Crappy sounding distortion but its what i have for now. For some solos a do run a overdrive before the pedal distortion and it doesnt sound that muddy or anything, just doesnt sound good.

may b you needa treble booster??


Solid state just gets very hissy and harsh.
Adding more treble =/= tone.
