How much is your budget?
I'd say metalmuff if you got 100 dollars.

well if your looking for a heavier sound it would be wise in spending your money on a Digitech Death Metal stomp box (its another name for a pedal btw) it would be wise getting a 9v adaptor aswell because it eas through 9v batteries with ease

metalmuff for sure

Metal Muff is the way to go. It's fantastic, and is 100% worth the price tag. Last time I played one (few months ago), it was great, but had quite a lot of feedback at high volumes.

Boss ML-2 Metal Core pedal if your looking for a pure, undiluted metal tone with a mad mid-scoop, and Boss MT-2 Metal Zone if your looking for something more versitle.

NO.
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.
Both of those pedals are horrible and scooping your mids makes for horrible tone anyway.

Metal Muff.

I agree with you that not everyone wants the same tone as him, but having mids is EXTREMELY important to the guitar cutting through the mix in a live situation. The guitar is a mid ranged instrument which is why you need mids. The cymbals from drums are highs and the bass are the lows.

If you think scooped mids sound good you're a ****ing retard.
Mids is where the body of the guitar is. Scoop the mids and you might aswell just not bother playing the damn instrument at all.

Everyone in here seems to support the Metal Muff.

Now, while I personally love EHX pedals, is it better than the Maxon OD-9 for VERSATILE gain boosting?

For just a boost the Maxon is better. What kind of amp are you using?

Although people can have their opinions, the metalzone is ah orrible, horrible pedal.

The metal core isn't to bad though. Im a fan of EQ pedals. EQ + metalcore = Epic...

Have the EQ in your effects loop and boost the mids slightly with it.

Cut the mids on your metalcore.

Then just find a tone you like with the EQ.

my first call would be to buy a new amp.

My second call would be go for a Rocktron Zombie or a Toadworks Death Rattle.

the person most likely to rush a stage and shoot the guitarist with the scooped mids.................... Dream pin! scooped mids have been around as long as metal has chill out. some people like scooped mids deal with it.

Scooped mids are perfectly fine for bedroom practicing and recording.

NOOOOOO

dont get the boss, its very dry and overall a dissapointing pedal, i had this choice a few months ago and i got an EHX Metal Muff, trust me its the only pedal that deserves the word Metal in its title, i got some excellent rock tones aswell. And look at my amp, its not even making the most of the pedal, i played it threw a peavey 112 valveking and it is the greatest sounding pedal ever. take my advise man.

Metal Muff is the best

Well it all depends on your amp really... if its a modeling amp I wouldn't bother. But I have a Metal Muff that I really like for when I'm not playing funk or blues. It's REALLY versatile with it's 3 band EQ and a top boost that I never use cause I play with a really bright guitar and lots of treble anyways but its there nonetheless. I can't say any of the Boss distortions I tried were better than the Metal Muff. The Metal Muff can do all of the Boss tones but more organic and just better sounding.
