No I live hours away from one. UG is my source for Gear info. You guys picked out my entire rig so feel proud. IbanezPsycho probably has some insite on these pedals hes had almost every distortion pedal and OD known to man.

I just tried the hardwire metal pedal and i hated it.

The valve distortion is much better.
EHX metal muff as well.

What was the range of the Metal and Valve? How Brootalz can the Valve get?

I just want a insane Scooped Pantera like tone for shitz and Gigglez but still want it to be decent.
#11
how about the MI Audio Crunch box? (i swear by it) or a little more pricey the fulltone fulldrive?


edit: i see you are into the "brootals". still the crunch box can do it, i believe, plus a line boost of sorts (line boosts never hurt in my opinion)

i good sir, do not agree. the crunch box certainly does not "blow" as you call it.

Ah, I didn't see your post

your B-52 can't get heavy pantera tones?! you said you have an OD, right? ok so you've probably already tried boosting it...have you tried an EQ pedal? you know that'll shape your sound and can potentially change it completely, right? i'd try one of those out first, just to make sure your amp can't pull it off itself. MXR 10 band for the ultimate win.

go muff. You won't have to go more than 3/4ths gain until it's just ridicules.

Anyone tried one?

I really like the Valve Distortion, but its more use on a slightly dirty channel, or for modern alternative or classic rock. The Metal distortion was REALLY nice IMO, but you should go try it out. I perfer the Metal Muff in any case =P

There are a lot of good ones way better than the digitech and the so called metal muff. I recommend the crunch box, sansamp gt-2 or the amt california pedal. Pricey but you know what they say, you get what you pay for.

The Sansamp GT-2, while a quality pedal, isn't anywhere near brootal and requires a noise suppressor as it gets pretty noisy at high gain levels. I think the Line 6 Uber Metal is a better pedal in this instance.

It doesn't require a noise suppressor if you have quality cables and decent PU. IF you are just saying that the uber metal is better because the sansamp is noisy, I think that you are just praising the uber metal because it has a built in noise gate.

If you want that high gain sound without any compromises, Zviex BOX OF METAL, this pedal sounds better than alot of metal amps like cheap Bugera's and amps that are pushed into metal with OD's like valvekings and C30s.
#28
Wait, you guys are all recommending pedals that emulate tube distortion when the TS wants Pantera tones?

Plus, he already has a Maxon OD if he wanted to boost.

I prefer rack gear over pedals. look for a used DOD G7, or a used Alesis Quadrverb GT.
Multi-Effects rack units give you amazing sound without any 60hz hum.

GO WITH THE UBER METAL!!!!!!!!!!!!! Im telling you its straight up pantera in a box, I could get closer Pantera tones with that then with my Randall...


I'm just fearing a digital sound. I want something that gets that crazy gain but with a more organic tube sound. Ibanez I made a Speaker thread check it out for me.

Lol, Then you arent looking for a Pantera tone ..... And any distortion pedal in that price range is gonna sound digital..
#34
Try turning the mids down on the amp and put the EQ in the loop with a frown on it. Turn your gain to about 6 or 7 and throw the boost on it.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.

What about some of the $150-$200 pedals that are on GC.com. I'm still really leaning towards the Hardwire TL-2.
#36
I think GC carry the Blackstar pedals...

...and if they have the same return policy as UK sellers you can return stuff you don't like within in 7 days for full refund.

Why would you want a Blackstar pedal?

..Because they sound good. I tried loads of different distortion box's before I decided on the DistX.

Here's a suggestion: Why don't you recommend a pedal yourself rather than just shooting down everyone else's suggestions?

Blackstar pedals are just fuzzy muddy crap.
