I only have 1 channel on my amp, I know that may be seen as a negative and all but I still like my amp alot regardless, but I was wondering to go from clean to distorted would a nano metal muff do good? Does it sound a fair deal like the regular metal muff? I know- I have a Big muff already, but that doesn't really give me a metal tone, its a sick tone regardless.

If this wouldn't be a good one for heavy chugging and explosive force like Slayer or Pantera, what would be?

Thanks in advance guys.

Your username... it's amazing.



Yup.

A distortion pedal will do the trick. I'm not a big fan of the Metal Muff, but the nano sounds better than the full sized Metal Muff.

The nano has an EQ just you can't mess with it as much, just scoop high, scoop low, and off. Besides if I wanted and EQ Id go and buy one, the EQ on my amp runs through the preamp tubes so there is a fair deal of difference in useing it already, and I could just go and buy an EQ pedal.

However if the Nano Metal Muff sounds better I may end up getting that, I would check youtube and compare the 2 by the vid.s on there but there are absolutly NO MM nano vids out there, just the full size top boost ones.

^Are you for serious?

How are you getting cleans with your windsor?
Actually, i'd recommend an overdrive or something if you want to retain alot of your original tone. But, you may need something like a metal muff or something along those lines for Pantera stuff.

I can't say enough for the full sized metal muff, it's good stuff. You can, and be patient getting used to the knobs, get good and great metal tone.

*grr* Its easy it get cleans on a Windsor trust me if you can't, your doing it all wrong, just take your preamp volume down to 1/2 and take your master up to 12, then you roll back the volume on your guitar itself and BAM damn fine clean tone right there.

^what someones going to sig that and try and make me look like and idiot even though its true.

However I'm talking about the nano metal muff not my amp, so is that a yay or a nay on the whole nano vs full sized, because the full sized one would take up a fair deal of space on my pedal board thats already pretty full, I don't want to have to get a monstrious sized pedal board after shelling out the money for one in the first place.

The full-sized MM is meant to be the best, with the pocket/ini MM a close second. The mini (not the Nano) is meant to be good with the only downside being that it has a toggle rather than a footswitch for the boost

I'm not too worried about the boost, I have a boost on my amp itself which works just fine for me, and even if that wasn't enough I could toss my bad monkey on the job, its a pretty nice booster.

Yeah, I'm not worried about the top boost, its a nice plus that I don't really need for playing rythm in our band. If I was playing lead then I'd be all for it, and if I would want a top boost its nothing my bad monkey or a good EQ couldn't fix.

Yes. I A/B'd all three Metal Muff's through a few different amps - Peavey JSX, Marshall JVM, some SS B-52, and a Peavey VK. I'd take the pocket and/or nano over the full sized MM, that's if I even liked the MM.
#13
I see, so I can work out some good chug with the Nano MM right?

Euch, I wouldn't use a distortion for your amp's dirt. It'll sound far worse, and you're not going to be able to switch between clean and dirty at all easily using that amp.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.
#16
The 5 to 1 ratio is makeing me think it may be possible to go from clean to distorted.

Look at my sig My twin is basically only one channel with 4 inputs all clean tho. I can get just about any sound I need from those pedals. The only thing i'm waiting for is the trifecta fuzz and that should just about be the gamet of tone.

+1000. There is no need for distortions. Maybe an over drive for your leads, but otherwise, that stuff isn't needed.

hmm.. i wonder if a guitar->overdrive->volume boost->amp would work for getting seriously heavy tones on a windsor?

cause an overdrive would make it kinda gritty if the gain on the amp has to kept low for cleans.. if you were to boost the volume on an overdrive it might take it to metallier territory..

Just a thought. not sure if it would actually work.

I run my windsor with just an overdrive and it does metal fine. Also I can get cleans easily at high volumes. I don't see why everyone finds it so hard.

well there ya have it.

anyway, from what i've heard before not many people buy windsors for their metal tone.. so i wasn't sure how much boosting it would need.
