I'm looking for a pedal that will give me a chug-ish metal sound, and wondering what would do this best. Right now i'm looking at the metal muff and distortus maximus, but feel free to recomend others. I'm trying to keep this around a c-note or less. Thanks.

What about a Rocktron Silver Dragon?

Or a BBE Crusher?

I don't like the Metal Muff - so I'd say try out those and the Krank.

edit: The Rocktron is about $140, but the Krank is $150? I bring it up because you say keep it under $100...

#2: I didn't like the MM because I thought it sounded thin, not what I think of for 'chug-ish' metal.

I have a metal muff, and it definitely takes some tweaking to get the sound that you're looking for, be it chunky or buzzy or whatever, but I find it does a great job. I played a bunch of other pedals before buying it, and it killed 'em all, but I havn't tried distortus maximus, so maybe that one is better. All I can say is the metal muff probably won't disappoint when it comes to crunch.

EDIT: people are hating on the metal muff. dunno why. the above ^ is my opinion though.
If Rock is a lifestyle, then Metal's an addiction

Let me guess...

A metal muff is an excellent, versatile pedal that is good not just for metal, but other genres as well.

I heard you don't get extreamly heavy distortion with the krank as u do with the metal muff. Its more of an overdrive pedal.

The Krank's probably better. The Metal Muff really doesn't get that chug.

In general, I found Metal Muff really reminds you of Dimebag's Darrell's sound, even on the Blues Junior. But if it's the chug sound, then I Metal Muff may be unable to do that sound.

their overdrive pedal is the Krankshaft, the Distortus is all about distortion. Personally not a big fan of the metal muff.
