i ve been listening to bands like shadows fall, dragonforce and so on and one thing i ralized or at least think i did that when they get into the solo part their sound is a litle diferent more clear higher pitch very distinguished, is that an effect or some kind of pedal that they are usin bc i dont believe its just the distortion pedal
if u can help me to get that sound like them or close to it it would be great

I don't know how they do it exactly but for a solo just stomp on your EQ pedal which is set to raise mid frequencies so it will cut through + boost it so you will be heard.

Hence when getting a EQ pedal for soloing make sure it has a boost.

There are other ways but I find that using an EQ is the best way.

The Metal Muff pedal has distortion with a boost if more volume is needed for solos I believe. smile.gif

You can put the EQ pedal (like Boss) into the FX Loop and it can be a hell of a boost pedal. Try it wink.gif

Silly question maybe but will the boost on the metal muff also boost any signal passing through, also when the distortion is off?

If the EQ pedal is before it I'm pretty sure it would.

A distortion pedal for boosting could color your sound a bit, so if you want a "clean boost", I would go with the EQ smile.gif

I meant the Metal Muff's own boost alone. That pedal has a distortion + a boost button. Hence, will the boost function as a boost even with no distortion active or does dist = off mean that the entire pedal is bypassed?

When the distortion is off, the boost gets bypassed-

Another alternative is T-Rex's Möller distortion pedal, which got a separate button for boost (0 to 20 dB) and works regardless wether the distortion is on or off.

Yeah, muff is not a true boost pedal.

BUT for the kind of music ripper wants to play, its a great distortion pedal and then the boost is already at your feet. However it is nice to have a dedicated boost pedal for general purpose stuff. EQ pedals work fine, something like tube screamer or such also works pretty well.

Check out Dave Barber's custom pedals. They're some of the best out there. He has lots of sound clips on his site and the reviews at harmony central beat out practically all other pedals on the market.

as long as we're talking about EQ-pedals, is the Boss GE-7 equalizer good? Or would you recomend another one?
