Ive had the Boss MT-2 Metal Zone pedal for almost a year. I still love the sound this thing puts out but on stage it just doesnt cut through the mix. I need suggestions on a new distortion pedal. Im heavily influenced by Thrice so I guess im going for that kind of sound, very dynamic but heavy and light when i need it to be.
you dont need a new distirtion pedal. have your tried useing a booster, messing with the settings, there are many things you can do to cut through the mic
What amp do you have? Also, what are your settings?

Old enough to yell rape.
Ive been looking at the boss mega distortion. But I think it might be a little over the top gain wise. Im not really into metal anymore so i dont really need a metal pedal. I just want a new pedal that I know can handle metal if I ever want to play metal. But I mostly want it for a good heavier rock type of tone.
for gigs i use a friends ampeg half stack. on the pedal my settings go..
Level 1 o'clock
treble 1 o'clock
bass 1 o'clock
mid 11 o'clock
mid freq almost 12
and distortion at about 1 to 2

i really dont like this pedal, im pretty much set on a new pedal. Just dont know what one

EDIT: its not the amp, the amps clean tone is awesome.

That is perhaps the most important piece of info you can provide us with.

How do you say "I'm okay" to an answering machine?

C'mon mate. He said he uses his friend's Ampeg halfstack (not that that narrows it down TOO much) for gigs.
