Metal Pedal

I own a GNX2 digitech effect pedal.

It's great and all...but it's humongous, and of course-digital.

 

I'm looking for a single distortion pedal, something extremely high-gain.

An alternative to the boss mt-2.

 

I play death metal/black metal, I've been looking at pedals like. the rocktron metal planet but I haven't been able to test anything out other then the MT-2.. because sadly that's all that the shops in my area have that are really high-gain. That and the line 6 uber metal, but that too is digital and i'm looking to stray away from the digital side.

 

so, any suggestions, i'd be grateful.

 

i haven't seen any metal distortion pedal threads.. so.. yeah..

 

-lengthy post sorry-

 

 

for anyone curious..

i use an agile ghost 2 (basically explorer) with kent armstrong ultra distortion pickup in the bridge and a bill lawrence 500xl in the neck.

 

through a peavey TNT 150 bass amp. (i know it's a bass amp.)

having relatively little experience with either, i recommend the zoom tri metal and ehx metal muff (the full sized one) based on what i've heard. im obligated to say, of course, that good metal distortion is all about the amp, but yeah. tri metal, they're cheap.

thanks a lot for the advice.


i was actually looking at the metal muff pedal.


and as far as amps go... somehow i only get good bass amps.

and i'm not a bass player
:(

i just get them for incredibly cheap.


i'm gonna look for the tri metal.


:)



im all for bass amps- if i could afford any amp for guitar it'd be a vintage svt... but go tube, dube

Insane gains: Zoom Tri-Metal.
High gain: Rocktron Zombie.

I prefer the Zombie over the Tri-Metal. The Tri-Metal sounds pretty static and lifeless like most diode clippers.

I just got this one & like it:

Although I've been using a Rocktron Metal Planet for the past few years.

You can't go wrong with that as a choice.

Other good ones are the AMT Du Hast and Rocktron Zombie.



oh, that looks like a sick pedal.
