Distortion for sure, overdrive won't give you the snarl that you're after. Maybe one of the boss distortion pedals such as the metal zone. Try a few out in your local guitar store and see what you think.

Wrong and no.


If you can't get those tones out of an AD-XL, you're doing it wrong.


If you still can't get it, get a Bad Monkey.

TS: Since you're using an SS amp you are going to want a distortion pedal. Overdrives are designed to push tubes harder to produce more gain.

If there is a store near you that carries a lot of pedals then my recommendation is to go there and try as many pedals out as you can. If not then check out some pedals online like the MI Audio Crunch Box or the Electro-Harmonix Metal Muff.

EDIT: You're using one of the amps from the XL series and you cant get a good metal tone!? The XL series was specifically designed for metal-oriented music...

If you're like me and you don't like the fuzziness that the XL can get, use the "Glass" channel (the clean setting), turn the gain up somewhere past half (I think I had mine on 3/4ish), and then put an EHX Metal Muff between your guitar and the amp. You'll get a Marshall-y crunch with plenty of gain. Trust me.

You also might want to invest in an EQ pedal (I have the MXR 10-band, but I bet the 6-band will work find as well). If you put the EQ after the Metal Muff, you can really sculpt the sound to your liking. It works pretty damn well.
