I've heard pretty good things about that one.

My suggestion is: Try it out! Play with the same guitar and amp that you have, and add the Metal Muff and see if it suits your playing style

I love mine, but it is pretty loose sounding, so you might not get very good sounds for Metallica and things like that out of it.

The metal muff will get you a7x , metallica tones easily but it wont get you that AC DC overdriven, crunchy marshall tone.

Depends on the type of metal muff, there are 3: the full size with top boost, the pocket, and the nano. They're solid pedals, but for a heavy distortion, I'd recommend a Boss MT2 metal zone for a solid British type sound, or a Line 6 Uber Metal, it has surprisingly good EQ control and has a built in noise gate,, only downside is that it devours batteries whole, an ac adapter would sove the problem with a battery in the unit as a backup precaution.

My Metal Muff is great.

I can get AC/DC-ish sound, Black Metal Roar, and anything in between.

It's the most versatile pedal I've ever played. The EQ works wonders, so make sure you get the full-sized one. Don't cheap out and get the pocket muff.

Tone is subjective, I dont need someone to tell me what I like, what may work for you may not work for everybody, and I happen to like my uber metal through my VHT Pitbull, it gives me the sound I desire, I could reccomend some boutique pedals that are pricier but I'm guessing its an entry level request, otherwise they wouldnt be asking what they SHOULD get, they'd demo as many until they found one that suited them. I've come across this scenario many times, being a GC accessories/ guitars dept employee, but if you're looking for a higher end distortion unit I'd try a Radial Tonebone Tri-mode or Hot British, they have a unique sound because they employ a single 12AX7 preamp tube.

The RocKtron Zombie is nice for the price, though it's best suited when paired with a tube amp...that is if you can find one readily availible.

An Uber Metal into a VHT sounds good?
I would think the VHT would be sharp enough as it is.


And +1 on the Tonebone, you may have to drop a pretty penny for it, but those things are the ****.

i have had my metal muff for almost a year now, its great and really versatile. don't just go by everyones opinions though. Give it a test run, I'm sure your gonna love it.

Well, there was that horrible accident with Metallica, where the entire band had their Metal amputated. =P

What amp are you useing? That's the most important element of the signal path.

People's opinions shouldn't matter as much as your ears.
