Hey guys,

I've got a solid state amp, a Roland cube x60, and I've heard that certain things don't sound great with solid state, like, active pickups, cause it doesn't have tubes to "overload". Would a boss ML-2 metalcore sound any good on a solid state amp?

Thanks.

P.S.: If this a good pedal or should I get another, if so, please mention.

It will work fine. Just use the JC-Clean channel for it. I would also add an EQ to give it an extra kick.

then go for the metalzone, the metalcore is a more high gain grainy nu-metal feel

id get the metal zone, its almost the same thing but it can get some more sounds out of it.

I like your suggestion. Actually to the OP - check out the Keeley modded Boss Metal Zone. It's actually a very good sounding pedal.

So you're cube isn't giving you what you're looking for with one of the Distortion channels cranked and scooped?

I would try out the Metal Zone, but I'd go to a shop and try them out. Thats you're best bet.

If you try the Metal Zone ask the clerk to see the paper work that comes with the pedal. They have a list of settings in them and try the metal setting. It'll give you a good starting point. You can tweek it to what you're looking for. The Metal Core might have one too.
