Thanks,

The best Boss pedals for metal are the Electro-Harmonix Metal Muff or a Guyatone MMX Metal Monster.

I incurred the wrath of the Association of White Knights. Specifically the Parent's Basement branch of service.

My guitarist has both but uses the Metalcore pedal. The distortion is much tighter and crisp, but also capable of some raw super heavy shit.

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

Both suck pretty bad stock.

I modded my MT-2 with the Monte Allums mod and it sounds WAY better.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

So any other pedal or which pedal would you prefer, to make that heavy, low sound that Deathcore riffs use?

I've heard some good things about the EHX Hot Tubes (Replace the tubes with 12AX7's to get some insane amounts of gain). There aren't any good demo's on youtube though. If you can't get your hands on that, I think that the Visual Sound Jekyll and Hyde can get pretty heavy. Otherwise, I would suggest the Metal Muff.

Oh! I forgot about the latest version of the Ibanez Tube king. Great sound from that too.

yea, the Metal Zone sucks imo, so i got rid of it, i have the core which i used with my VK sometimes, and it was ok.

Ok, I totally forgot about the Blackstar HT-DISTX. It's kind of pricey but WELL worth it.

I would recommend this over any of those.

There also might be better demos online. Check for yourself.

This is a great example. Wait until about half-way through to see what it can really do as far as gain goes.
