Bought one of these new..wasn't very crazy about it to be quite honest with you.Too crunchy for my taste,everyone has different styles,etc.I played it through my Carvin Legacy Amp,definitely too crunchy.Great for hardcore metal heads.I do alot of lead solos so I use a Tube screamer TS-808 over the lead channel on the amp.Very warm,natural and not too muddy.For my Distortion I simply use a BOSS DS-1.Dont get me wrong,its a great pedal,just not for my type of music.Hope this helps.

This pedal is a very good sounding distortion. Although, that's simply what it is: distortion. The one thing that one would need to know before buying is that the distortion in this pedal is HOT. Even on the lowest possible setting, the sound that this pedal produces is extremely overdriven. This is NOT a pedal to get if you want a sort of lightly-overdriven sound. This is a BIG MEAN DISTORTION MACHINE. Think death metal. The build quality of this pedal is also very nice. It's extremely solid-feeling. Will easily take a beating and keep working.
This pedal does produce distortion but the tone is horrible. Seriously. Don't buy it without trying out the competition. I give it two starts because the one I had was tough and lasted a long time.
Well what can I say. I bought this pedal about 15 years ago. To say the least the now 15+ year old pedal is still playing strong with absolutely zero issues. I love the versatility and range in tones that it provides. It has been my main practice pedal as well as stage pedal since I first bought it. It is must have for any hard rock/ Metal guitarist out there. Iam a big GNR player and also own the Marshall AFD 100 head and I must say that If you play around with this pedal you can achieve a tone extremely close to that of the AFD100. Buy the pedal it is well worth the low price (1/3rd of what I paid for it back in 1996/7) and will give you years of great distortion in your guitar playing.
I bought this pedal recently, and it is a well made pedal. It seems to be indestructible, which is nice in any pedal, and if you know how to set it, it is a great pedal. There were only three problems I found with it. The first was the fact that it will go through batteries in a matter of hours, which is easily solvable with a power source. The second was that it has a lot of treble pushing through it, which isn't bad, but it can be annoying if you don't know how to set it. The third problem is that when the batteries it is using get low, the activator light will not turn on, which is a minor problem, but it is still annoying. I don't know if it is worth the full $110 dollars, but if you can get it used or with a discount it is definitely worth it.
This is a great addition to my starter collection and I got a used one on sale for $40 from Guitar Center!!!!
This was actually the first pedal I ever bought. And while at first I didn?t like it and what it did to my sound. Because robbing tone is definitely something it?s capable of. I did however eventually find, for me, that perfect mixture of tone and subtle grind. It?s now one of my favorite pedals.
While this pedal especially excels in Metal tones, it is more versatile than it's title makes it out to be. While it keeps a nice crunch at most levels, the gain amount can range from a crunchy classic rock to even death metal. The best thing about this pedal is it's massive tonal control. The High/Low and Mid/Mid Freq control can craft your perfect tone, from sweeping your mids like Pantera or focusing more on Highs and Mid freq to achieve an Iron Maiden tone. This pedal also sounds killer when boosted with the Super Overdrive pedal, to achieve a more driven than distorted sound. Al in all, if you want a good heavy distortion, but not the brutal sound of the Metalcore pedal, Metal Zone is a good investment.
This pedal is great. It works well as an overdrive pedal as well as a distortion pedal. The instruction book gives some basic settings that are nice to start off with. Overall it is excellent for the price.
i've had this for 16 years and it still works perfect. You can get all kinds of sounds out of it. Just back off the distortion an d you get classic rock sounds. Fiddle with the eq and it gets heavier.
I bought this with my Christmas money and it is a great buy especially for the money. You get a wide range of tone from the bass treble and equalizer knobs, you can get just about any sound you try for. the disortion is very good and has the perfect sort of bite to it that some other pedals lack. i play street punk and ska punk and this is perfect, i also dabble with heavy metal and blues and it is just amazing for all types of music. Great pedal for the money!!!
