I'm looking to get the best pedal to get the "stereotypical" modern day alt-rock crunch. something that sounds similar (but obv better) than my RFIER-stack setting on my micro cube.

I'll be playing it through my peavey c-30 effects loop if that makes a diff. My peavey sounds good on mid overdrive but once I crank it all the way up, its just too harsh.
this is a post. there are many like it but this one is mine

If you've got the bread, a Damage Control Solid Metal is a very versitile pedal.

A lot of people recomend the metal muff. I like it, it sounds pretty nice, the only thing is it lacks note clarity once you get into the lower notes. That's my only real qualm with it.

I'm looking for one as well. Something to go with a tube amp. Someone recommended a tube screamer, but that one is just overdrive, not distortion, right?

If its going into a valve amp like a classic 30, then a) you want an overdrive pedal, not a distortion and b) you want to put it in front of the amp, not in the effects loop.

Some nice pedals are:
Ibanez/Maxon/Decent clone Tubescreamer
Fulltone OCD
etc...
There'll be other suggestions, but the 2 points at the top are important.

id say the metal muff, sounds awsome, its crunchy and not fizzy like most distortion pedals

how come? If I run a distorted/clipped signal through the clean channel why wouldn't it sound okay?

Putting it out of before the amp and not in effects loop makes sense though.

You should put distortion pedals between your guitar and amp. Generally when I play guitar the signal path is:

(If FX loop bypassed)
Guitar>Wah Pedal>Distort>Amp>Speaker

(With FX loop)

Guitar>Wah Pedal>Distort>Amp>FX Loop (Chorus, Flanger, Delay etc.)> Speaker

But that's just me.

More on topic, try getting a good OD to saturate your guitar's signal for the tubes.

No it's not. They are not very good in leads IMO.
