Basically, I like my amps OD channel, but I would like something to give it more gain.

Maxon OD9 or OD-808?

Or something completely different?

Suggestions please?

I play all sorts of metal and i have a ValveKing 112.

An overdrive will work depending on the amp..
some amps won't have enough gain to become suited for metal even with an overdrive.. others are close to it but not quite and the overdrive reaches enough gain.

I have no clue about the valveking so I can't really give you an answer :X

It sounds quite good without a pedal but I would like more gain.

The 808 is a good choice, but the suggestion of a preamp pedal is better, in my opinion. Mesa Boogie puts out a V-Twin pedal that is fantastic for any metal, blues, or classic rock. It's very versatile, but it's on the expensive side, as it the 808 too. Hope this helps.
