I like the Boss MT-2. I tried it out at guitar center with other metal pedals and I felt it got the best sound, I used it with an eq pedal that made it sound even more badass.

buying a single pedal is not going to give you better tone, its based on a whole crapload of things. Amp, speakers, etc etc.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.
