Hey,

I admit I am a gear fanatic and love to buy new pedals.

I already own some of them:
Electro Harmonix Tone Tattoo (MetalMuff+Delay)
Electro Harmonix Big Muff Pi
Electro Harmonix Holy Grail Plus (Reverb)
Electro Harmonix Soul Preacher (Sustainer)
Electro Harmonix SuperEgo
TC Electronics Polytune
TC Electronics NOVA System
TC Electronics The Dreamscpae
Ibanez TS 808 Tube Screamer
DigiTech Distortion Factory DF-7 (which I dislike, because it sounds flatter than the others)

At this moment I am sure about buying the MXR Smart Gate M-135 which is working really good from the tests I made and does not affect the sound as much as the Boss Noisegate.

I also wonder which Distortion/Overdrive Pedals might be a good add on to give me some new colors to my pedalboard?

I was thinking about:

BOSS Mega Distortion
BOSS Metal Zone (which is in the gearbag of Nickelback e.g., but I fear their sound depends much more on the Boogies they use)
MXR 78 Custom Badass Distortion
Himmelstrutz (any of them?)

So what can some other pedaladdicts recommend me?

Oh maybe not too unimportant: Black Stone Cherry, Daughtry, Nickelback, Pearl Jam (from the Alive album), Van Halen or Zakk Wylde have the sound I try to accomplish with my pedalcollection. Some of these sounds can already be recreated really well, some not. I know the sound of these guys is often dependant of their tunigs and their amps, but sometimes you can recreate these sounds with pedals really well.

Ohh and I use a BlackStar amp! wink.gif

Thnaks for your ideas...

Wow amazing collection of pedals you have got there! smile.gif

I would recommend Fulltone OCD as a very good drive pedal! The sound quality is just excellent.

For the metal tone in EMULATOR, I recently switched from an MXR Fullbore Metal (too much mid scoop/too heavy) to a ModTone extreme metal. It was cheap too....but sounded better than many other pedals I tried. Awesome eq as well. I highly suggest at least trying one.

I just purchased the xotic ep boost pedal - it's very subtle but adds a touch of vibrant aggression to your tone - enough to push your tubes harder. I wouldn't call it a metal pedal - more of a lead guitarist tone if you need a boost and some edge to cut through the rhythm section. I've been pretty happy with it since I purchased it a few days ago.

yes! this is my favourite! as well as the Route 66 also by Visual Sound.

I think that you could also add a Wah Wah and maybe a Whammy to your current set up...

Good poing! A nice Wah pedal ( wads to choose from just try several and see what you like) and maybe a Digitech Wammy Pedal (does wah/octave/harmonizer all in one pedal) would a good idea.

Personally, I prefer the ProCo Rat Box. I really like the tone it produces. Especially when using it with a Class A Tube Amp.
