Which is the best pedal for a good metallica/megadeth tone. Bare in mind i also play a lot of 'lighter' stuff like RHCP, beatles etc (but the boss ME-50 will do for that).

Cheers!

EDIT: or an overdrive pedal?

Get a new amp. A distortion pedal isn't going to make a crappy amp sound any better.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

But if you do get a pedal for metal, go for the Metal Muff.

Still, a valve amp like a Peavey Valveking, Ashdown Fallen Angel, Mesa/Boogie Express etc (depending on your budget) maybe with a Tubescreamer; would be better.

He says he can't play loud!

TS. get a Roland Micrcocube or a Cube 30X if you think you'll be able to sneak the volume up a bit from time to time.
