Guitar Pedals for Death Metal
 
Hey,

I'm looking at purchasing a distortion pedal in the near future, and I was looking for some advice from some experienced metal players. I need something with swerious balls and crunch because I play a lot of death metal stuff. I've looked at 3 models in particular and heard pros and cons for each. however, I don't know what to believe so I've come here as my last resort.

These are the models I was reffering to:

BOSS MT-2 Metal Zone

DoD FX86 Death Metal Distortion Pedal

Marshall Jackhammer


Opinions anyone?

Boss MT-2: More variation in sound, so that you can in turn, create your own sound, I personally think it doesn't have enough of a 'raw' sound, kind of souns thin...

DOD FX86: Awesome pedal, has more balls than the MT-2 and Jackhammer but be prepared for feedback. Also out of this you can get many tones but not as many as the MT-2

Jackhammer: I'd say nothing special, just another distortion pedal for metal, not DM

Digitech Metalmaster: Good fuckin pedal, I've only used it through a B-52 stack and an Ibanez RG270 and it's my favorite so far. Has the balls of the DOD and tonal range of the MT-2

DOD Grunge: I use this to play DM and it sounds awesome, not as good as the FX86 but still can hold it's own

best bet I'd say is the Digitech, if not go for a DOD, lots of feedback but get a noise gate if you can't handle it...:uzi:

if you decide to get the dod death metal i suggest that you decide to buy pro leads like Planet Waves leads. Thats what i did and it elliminated all the feedback and static shite. It is fucking amazing now, NO SHITTY HORRIBLE FEEDABACK!!! YEAH . I would get pro leads for it before you even decide of getting a noisegate.

OK, I checked out the Metal Master and found this:

http://digitech.com/products/metalmaster.htm

Click on LISTEN and tell me if the pedals that this pedal can "supposedly" emulate really sound like that, or if its just a crappy imitiation. I'll probably buy this if it offers the sounds of the other two pedals, and especially for the "Tour of Hell" setting they have. That is the ultimate death distortion that I was looking for. Thanks a lot for helping me find this.

How mutch do the metalmaster cost? More or less than metalzone?

Necro_Butcher 2003-07-28 09:42

as far as i know they cost the same amount

mrweijia 2003-07-28 11:03

which one has the highest gain output?

Mordor 2003-07-28 12:37

the digitech metal master costs shit loads more than the boss and dod. My dod death metal cost me bout 30. I aint got a boss mt2 but there bein sold at about 59 and the digitechs sellin for 85. So for your money your better off gettin a Dod death metal and probably some other effects. It would probly still work out cheaper than the digitech.

daggerfall 2003-07-28 13:01

I got a Metalzone, and if the metalmaster is expensive I wont buy it.

I've never seen a Metalmaster pedal in norway anyway.

AND... the guy who played on the demonstration, at the homepage, is probely good enough to get anything sound good...

DEAD 2003-07-28 19:38

Zoom Tri-Metal. Best solid-state distortion I've ever heard. You get amazing distorion that doesnt mudy up. And if you are stupid enough to want to scoup the mids, it has a range control for the mids so you can make your tone total shit if you like. But you get a great sound with everything at 12 o'clock and with some tweaking from them all at the posituon you get your perfect sound. Its like $60, but I heard it got discontinued. Real shame, such a great pedal.

Yhe Phil has sum crazy death metal scream huh? Id even say it rivals Chris Barnes..... LMAO but anywayz

DOD - $50
TRI-METAL - $50
BOSS - $80
DIGITECH - $80

Those where the cheapest i could find them. Most prices r from musicians friend except the Tri-Metal is from Sam Ash.

A flanger is pretty cool for Death Metal depending on how you
set it up. Sometimes it gives a very thick flanging sounds with Distortion.
Try using two dist. pedals also....It may give a shit load of feedback,
but its worth a try.

RUSSIANROULETTE 2003-08-09 20:32

I have the DOD Death Metal distortion pedal. In my opinion it's the best distortion I've ever played.....and I've played many. It's not really Death Metal distortion though, I think it sounds more Thrash than anything. Good for rythm but a little too screechy for leads.

xdislexicx 2003-08-19 11:52

go with a mmx metal monster, it has a tube in it! its sooo much better than the boss metalzone,digitech,dod,zoom. but its like $150 american

an even better choice would be a mesa/boogie bottle rocket, it's about $200 but its like havin a dual rectifier in a stompbox.



:uzi: :drunk: :flame: :beer: XXX

yeah, except it sounds like shit compared to a real rect :rolleyes:

out of the list the thread starter noted, I'de pick the MT-2 because of its versatility and tone...

tube pedals are nice, but compared to the tube amps they're modelled after, they sound like crap, they are a nice addition though... guess I'm not much of a pedal pusher.

boss mt2 metal zone thats what i got and i love it:beer:

yeh, but just about every distortion pedal, even most amp's distortions, sound like shit compared to the real dual rec. and the bottle rocket isnt exactly modeled after the rec., the vtwin pedal pre amp is though, but its like $300+ and it sounds alot better than the bottle rocket.(still not as good as the real dual rec. though,:(

the big muff is a good cheaper pedal, its a really thick one, great for warm rythm.
i don't like the metalzone as much as i used to, once you've had a real tube amp, you don't want to go back.

the best thing to do is sell your mom's car and buy a bogner uberschall (head+cab=$3,500), then move in with your bandmate in a different state so she cant find you, then you can live happily ever after, and bust out the heaviest shit ever!

well that sounds like about the best idea I've heard in here all year, haha

the E-H big muff, I think its too vintage sounding and not tight enough, but I'm not a big E-H fan, I only like their microbass-synth.

Necro_Butcher 2003-08-20 08:59

ok beotchs im gonna tell you all right now about the best distortion pedal right now
ok im talking about the line 6 distortion modulater(the yellow pedal with 4 buttons)
ok this pedal is used by the most brutal death metal band in my place and it also has like 20 different kinds of distortion so it has all the veristillity in the world
the only down side to the pedal is the price (its about 400 canadain i think)
BUT IT IS THE BEST DISTORTION PEDAL EVER MADE
