I've been browsing around seeing these threads about people wanting to do metal on tube but not spend an arm and a leg. A common example being the valveking, you apparantly need a pedal to be able to play metal, but i never see recommended pedal. Here's what i've learned so far . There are apparantly two ways to use a pedal, to use an overdrive pedal to tighten the distortion on the lead channel, or to use a distortion pedal to use on the clean channel of an amp. There's an all tube crate v 33w on sale for 250, i have a $400 budget for an amp, any ideas on what pedal?

Ibanez TS-9, Maxon OD-9, Maxon OD-808, Boss HM-2. Those are the only ones I can think of at the moment.

A ZW-44 Wylde overdrive would be good for metal. Look at some of the good youtube demos.

I have played the MXR ZW-44 Wylde Overdrive Pedal, although I was a bit skeptical about it being a signature effect...it sounded great, and I don't like Zakk Wylde.

It'd be closer to incest than masturbation, but I don't think there's a word for it.

i think you should try the amp with an OD as a boost and see if you like the gain you get from there. Good od's to look into would be ts-808, mad od-808, ts-9, maxon od-9, or a digitech bad monkey if your on a budget. If your looking for a distortion pedal maybe a metal muff.

^^yea and it probably has CRUSHING OVERDRIVE. but seriously ive heard the metal muff is good and the TS-9
^I S*** you not compadre!

Wow TS, this is a seriously great, original idea.


Anyway, I'm off, for some reason I have the strongest urge to listen to The Ramones.

I use the Metal zone pedal from boss...it has a pretty good sounding distortion, but theres a lot of highs on it, it sounds pretty good on my crate.

I have one and I wouldn't recommend it, it just sounds too digital for my tastes.
