  • Best PREAMP pedal for M E T A L ?

    I know there's a lot of great pedals out there than can server as a good preamp for heavy metal distortion. I wanted to do a little survey after reading (and drooling) through the big tube pedal thread.

    - What's your favorite pedal for high gain metal?

    - How would you describe it, what amp(s) does it kinda/sorta sound like?

    If you have a high-gain pedal you love but dont like metal, post about it anyway. I just love typing M E T A L

    wrong forum...


    VERY WRONG FORUM


    I recommend you edit the post and ask another thing... after you begin to get flamed and raped with:

    "get a tube amp"

    *insert metalzones or gorilla amp pics

    *insults

    etc.

      I like the Metal Zone. It's plenty Metal, and if you play Metal through it, you'll be metal. You'll be playing in The Zone and you'll be playing Metal through the Metal Zone and in The Zone of Metal. I hate the Metal Zone. It's Zone of Metal is not the Zone most Metallers want to be Zoned in on. But If that Zone that the Metal Zone Zones in on, you will be Zoned out!

            LOL oh damnit.

            Ok I meant PREAMP pedal. That technically isnt an effect

            TUBE preamp pedal at that, tube freaks (I am myself a tube freak so dont take offense)

              Well just a pedal will not alter your amp's character for sure. If you got an amp with medium to heavy crunch probably a tubescreamer or a rangemaster will do the trick for you.

              If you want a floor preamp get a V-Twin or a Tube Toner!
              If you want to go high end get a Soldano Supercharger GTO
              Diezel VH4
              Diezel 4x12 cab with V30s
              VHT Pittbull Super Thirty
              Soldano Hot Rod 50
              Korg DL8000R
              Warmoth, Don Lace Bastard Frankenstrat
              Les Paul Standard Premium Plus
              Suhr Carve Top Standard

              and several other gadgets....

                  Please try the Koch Pedaltone, it has nice high-gain sound and come with 4 x 12AX7.

                  The Koch Pedaltone sounds much better than

                  Engl Tubetoner ( EQ not wide range),
                  H&K Tubeman ( too smooth sounding),
                  Soldano GTO ( modern sound, but no enough of gain) &
                  Mesa V-Twin ( too moddy)

                              I agree. I was very pleasantly surprised by that pedal. THrough a good clean channel it got some very nice metal tones.


                              I was also surprised/impressed by the Krank distortion pedal.
