I will look into that one, but would a overdrive pedal sound good over a distortion pedal? Are they allowed to be on at the same time?

it will be VERY fuzzy, and create A LOT of feedback problems.

thats only if you turn everything up on the OD all the way. Although I like the feedback and fuzz my OD pedal produce, it can also be turned down to be just a standard boost that's quiet and give your sound a nice beefier tone.

So with the proper eq, I can have both a distortion and an overdrive pedal on at once?

if you configure the the pedals' EQs right, yeah. You could have your distortion pedal set to teh br00talz, but instead of using your OD to add more gain to the signal, you can turn the gain on the OD down, and have the Level (or whatever) turned up to boost the signal, or make it louder without the extra fuzz and feedback from adding more gain.

if you check out the EHX Metal Muff, like Vince mentioned, you'll find that it might be a distortion pedal, (a dang good one, too) but it has something called a Top Boost, which adds more treble to your sound, so you can play leads while cutting through the mix at the same time. Its kinda like 2 pedals in 1. So i second that you check out the Metal Muff smile.gif

I dont like the top boost though. I hate over the top treble. That's why I stick to my OD pedal to cut through the mix no problem while still retaining a nice beefy over driven tone that the top boost doesnt deliver smile.gif. Its by all means a great pedal so don't hesitate.

I dont like the sound of Boss Metalzone. Its too restrictive or too digital. Even though its a Metal distortion, it has that trebbly awful sound. If I were you, I'd try the Metalmuff. Its the only pedal I use for Metal.


I didn`t quite like the original Metal muff, too many knobs:P
But the pocket metal muff was awesome!

Had a very nice and tight metal distortion, even when i tuned to C. Sounded badass. And it`S cheap, only 900 NOK in Norway. And Norway is a pretty expensive country, most pedals are 1000+
