The Good Metal Distortion

I have a small little problem. I have a shitty guitar and a shitty amp. I cant afford a new guitar or new amp. The problem I have lies in the amp. Its sucks ass because it has no distortion on it. All I have is the Digitech Rp200. I like to play black metal, Immortal type distortion. Also I enjoy Amon Amarth. If anyone could help me with setting for my piece of shit please go ahead.

I would have to suggest getting a job and saving some money... whats stopping you? A low budjet distortion sounds have-decent compared to a low budjet clean, which IMO sounds like complete shit. So really, you dont need that much money to get a distortion going.

What do I have? I have a little Fender Bullet amp... it has GAIN (distortion) built into it and it works quiet well.. except its hard to ajust the volume when its the gain is above 5 (out of 10)... its either two quiet or too loud. It was about $170 Canadian... so thats peanuts american ($120 I'm guessing). Definitely worth it. It was my first amp (considering a tube soon) and has brought me far.

a damn good petal would be the Death Metal distortion by DOD(an obvious choice). has a real deep, crunchy sound. great for solo's except for it doesn't carry harmonics very well.

Thanks Drag the Waters. But what about black metal. I have been searching all around music stores in order to find a nice black metal sound and turned up with nothing.If you have any suggestions, please share. And to dunlop man... I lead a shitty life. The only thing that keeps me alive is my music. I have been saving and shit but it will probably be about a year before I am able to buy a nice powerful amp.

sound

Dude, u could just pick up a Boss Metal Zone (MT-2) if you cant afford much its your best bet, it can achieve a range of sounds. A job wouls also be a plan if u want the big stuff, b4 u buy your amp find out wat the bands u listen to use, thats your best bet to get the sound u want (if u want to sound like them) u should aim to have your own "corpsevomit sound" that ppl would recognise as "your sound".

Hey man, check out this link, it is has reviews out the yang yang on any brand, any model pedal, effects processors, whatever:
www.effectsdatabase.com
Personally, I think for your situation you should check out the boss mt-2 metal zone like metaldave said. You could use the dod fx-86b dm distortion with your mid's cranked, but I still think the mt-2 could better achieve that black metal "hiss".

i would seriously suggest getting the Dod Death metal!! its a killer pedal for those on a tight budget. I used to use one for death/black metal, but i saved up my money for over a year and got a boss gt6, IT FUCKIN ROCKS!!!!!!

you could also try the Digitech metalmaster, theres shit loads of variation in that pedal, more than the mt 2,

I picked up DigiTech's metal master and liked the different tone variations, but I wouldn't recommend you use it as a 9V operated stompbox because it has a digital prosessor that will eat a fresh 9V in 20 miuntes. My DOD fx 86 can run for a week and a half, being used a few hours a day on a new 9V. So if you're looking at the metal master, I would also drop another twenty bucks on the adapter.

I wouldn't really suggest the MT-2 for Black Metal. To me it seems to have a better thrash sound. I say go with the DOD. Or be smart, go and try some distortion pedals.

No, DOD pedals haven't really seemed to be too sturdy in my opinion, which would make up for their low prices. I've broken two so far.

Man, I don't know what the hell you guys are doing to your pedals, but I bought my first dod fx 86 used like three years ago. That finally took a shit, and I just recently replaced it. But those things have sturdy metal casings, and it doesn't have a digital processor in it, and unless you're taking the thing in the pool with you, or you guys have giant ape feet... I dunno. Maybe I'm just lucky....

id have to disagree and say the DOD pedals are great...

i have tried and bought alot of pedals over the years....i owned a metal zone and thought it was ok until i put it up against this cheap DOD grunge pedal i found...the grunge blew it away...

now it didnt exactly give me the sound i was looking for but i did run it through some piece of poo marshall combo..70 watts or so(cant remember)...so i hunted around for a good cheap but loud stack...and i found a bargain!!

what i did was trade in my marshall combo for a randall 412-jb quadbox(4 x 12'' speakers, 400watts)...i thought it was a fair deal cause i knew once i found a head i was gonna be able to crank it..

the head i found is actually a bass head, its a Peavey sessionbass 200watter and i found it in some 2nd hand shop amongst the stereo amps and it was very cheap...i found the same model in a guitar shop and 2nd hand it was 3 times more expensive than what i payed for it..i figured if it didnt sound good with my box i could flog it off to someone for a tidy profit..

but to my surprise the amp rocked hard...the head has many knobs so im able to create alot of good sounds without actually adjusting my pedal knobs...

so what im saying here is that your amp has alot to do with your sound....the pedal can only do so much....and another option is to get an eq' pedal to boost your mids or your lows or what ever needs it.

hope that mad sense cause im really stoned.

ummm... all the dod pedals i've played and/or owned(grunge,deathmetal,supradist,chorus, ect.) had metal casings, so i don't know what "peice of plastic shit" dod pedals you've been playing. i've only broken one dod pedal, and it had nothing to do with the out side being poorly constructed, i just hooked up the wrong adapter and it fried it.

after i had owened half a dozen different distorion pedals i just figured, most the pros use their amps for distortion. so i went out and bought a mesa vtwin rackmount preamp another 4x12 cab, i sold my old head and bought a nice power amp. now with that setup i could get meaner or pussier distorion than any of the pedals i've played.(mt2,dod death,supra and grunge,ibanez ds7 and sm7.)
i'd suggest saving up and putting money into a bitchn amp with the sounds you like.
