I have been looking at the metal muff when I noticed the Damage control distortion pedal. I 've got a ESP Dv8-r and a Marshall RG100SC. I know I want to get a distortion pedal I'm just trying to look around what are everyones opinions on between the two pedals?

I like the Metal Muff, but it's sort of a love it or hate it kind of pedal, it has a very unique sound whereas the Damage control is more generic sounding (although it sounds very very good) so try both out and see.

I fully agree except I don't like muffs. I recomend the metal zone.

metal zone?!

bleh..

i fully recommend the damage control. not because i think its better than the metal muff (never actually tried a EHX MM) but i simply because i feel that damage control products are very good quality.

Not a fan of either of those personally. Kind of equal in terms of tone really. Check out some of AMT's stuff.

Lots of clips of AMT's here.

Ive owned both and if price isn't an issue., go for the Solid Metal It doesnt have as much gain as the Muff, but it sounds very natural. The Metal Muff sounded great to me until I played 5150's and such.

The Muff sounds thin and artificial compared to the Damage Control Solid Metal which does a good job at replicating high-gain amp distortion.

The MM is a great pedal, but I haven't played the Damage Control so I can't compare the 2. I basically use it as my amp b/c I have a ****ty @$$ MG. It took my tone from life support status to stable. I pretty much skip the preamp by turning it's volume down, plugging the MM in and using only the master volume on the amp. It works really good for me now, at least until I get the money for a 5150.

I thought the Muff was a lot thicker sounding (at least the way I EQ'd it) but you're right that it doesn't really replicate a high gain amp, since it's kinda fuzzy.
