Tough, you need to. Get rid and get yourself a Roland Cube instead, a pedal's not going to do what you want.
Actually called Mark!

Metal Muff is a great pedal when used with a tube amp, but sounds thin through a solid state....

Unfortunately those metallica tones you seek come from very high end amps and not pedals...

You REALLY need a new amp. I didn't even know zoom made amps. I bet they suck.
Man, look at the EQ on the Mesas.

Fuvk no. That pedal will get you nowhere near Metallica's sound through a solid state. I've tried, trust me. It sounds really compressed and thin, very bad. Through a tube amp it sounds great. I've heard it through a VK and it sounds really nice.

But through a solid state that pedal is too much. I would work much better for really heavy, death metal stuff in drop tunings, but not for Metallica.

That will do exactly what you want too. Plus you can make a few bucks of the amp you have now. Go for the Cube.

Remember that Metallica's tone has changed a lot thru the years, so it depends on what era(s) you want to emulate. And that can range from the MXR '78 distortion to the MXR full bore metal, Boss MT-2 metal zone and others.
I remember when Digitech made modeling pedals emulating Clapton, Hendrix, and a guy from disturbed. It sure would be nice if they'd do the same for Metallica, but I'm sure there are way too many legalities.

Didn't Hetfield use a ProCo Rat years ago?
It's an opinion. It's subjective. And I'm right, anyway.
