1.Metal Zone(I'm using this right now)
2.Metal Core
3.Mega Distortion

Just asking, because I was thinking of switching to Metal Core, but i'm not sure, need help from someone who has experienced both, or has knowledge of these.

Well I have tried all three and at the time I first bought it I liked the Metal Core. But now after a year with it I would have to say the metal zone and mega distortion is a lot more versitile and better. But if you want a Dimebag sort of distortion go to the metal core it hits his sound perfectly. Just go to your guitar center and try them out they should have all three.

I've got the Metal Zone, but I haven't tried any of the others. I agree with that dude ^

Well the Metal Core is very organic and ballsy but it is hard to find good settings but when you do it is a pretty good pedal, the metal zone I find is very good in your room but sounds thin when playing at a bigger gig. Don't know about the Mega Distorion on that though.

Don't limit yourself to just Boss dude, there are a lot of makers out there that blow them out of the water. My advice is to go to pedalgeek.com. Search through there. All the pedals they have there have sound clips so just look through and listen to them.

Yea, I was thinking about that. I'll check them out.

Electro-Harmonix is probably the best (IMHO) non-boutique producers of analog pedals, aside from Maxon. Boss isn't bad, but better at their digital stuff.

Boss=Not the greatest OD's/Distortions. They're actually kind of bleh.
If you're looking for higher gain stuff on somewhat of a budget, go for an EH metal muff.

Boss pedals are usable; Until you get one with the word 'metal' in it's name.
There's better out there.
Signatures are overrated.
