Which one of these is the overall best pedal?

[Metal Master]
[Distortion Factory]

My friend has the Metal Master, and I really like it...but I'm not sure which one I should get. Which one is the most versatile?

Has anybody seen a comparison between these two?
I don't know why Mac users get so defensive when you call them idiots. I mean, Apple is a company that has built its entire user base around the fact that its users can't do simple things like turn their computers on.

You should try them out. If you can't, go for the metal master.

A new amp


What he said. Instead of inking money into a sub-par distortion pedal. I recommend saving up for a nice tube amp with a good built-in metal distortion, something like a Peavey 5150 2x12. You can get them fairly cheap used on eBay, and I'm sure you can find a lot of people out there willing to buy your spider. Sorry if this is offensive, but I'm just giving you my honest opinion.

On the topic of the Pedal...if you're dead-set on getting one, I say to avoid the Metal Master. About 2 years ago, I bought one because it sounded so mean to my untrained ear. I haven't touched it in forever, I cannot push a decent sounding metal tone out of it to save my life. I've never heard the Distortion Factory, but I suggest staying away from lower-priced distortion stomp boxes. They generally tend to sound way too digital. If I had to suggest one, it'd be the distortion factory, just because it's more versatile.

Hope this helps.

^ Most cheap distortions are analogue. I'd avoid modelling distortions "captures the sound of x pedals in 1", that's like asking for a bad emulation of a number of cheap distortions.
