The second you open the box you will notice the durability that comes with most Digitech stomboxes. You could bring this pedal to the mosh pit and back and it would still be in one piece. Once you plug this in you will be overwhelmed with how many different distorted tones you can come up with. Using the X-series morph knob you can choose from crunchy low tones, screaming high tones, and everything in between. Can't get that perfect tone? The instruction manual included with the box give's you many presets such as the DOD and the BOSS metal stombox tones. The Metal Master may be more pricey than your average distortion pedal but you will definetly get your moneys worth. I have owned this pedal for a good four to five years and it's still in good condition, great tone, and no problems what so ever. Even if your not a headbanger the Metal Master can give you the rocking tone you've always wanted!

This is a good pedal for metal and it gives a very heavy sound. I found this pedal doesn't cut as well as other pedals with individual EQ like the Boss Metal Zone or the Marshall Jackhammer. For Riffs, it tends to give a very cut-mid sound, which sounds very heavy but it gives alot of unwanted noise and feedback(especially at high volume) so it would work better with a noise suppressor of some sort. For solos, I would say this pedal is not bad. It can give a very warm distortion sound for solos with the right settings. Overall I recommend this pedal for soloing rather than riffs and you do need a noise suppressor to cut the noise in order to get the full affect.

Better than Boss Metal Zone

By Zeke

from Louisiana

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

I used to play a boss metal zone until I joined a band my friends started up. When I would go to play my amp always had a hiss to it and the distortion wasnt really good at high volumes. It might've been my amp, but this pedal definitely fixed the problem either way. With no hissing and balls-to-the-wall distortion, this is a must buy for the metal lover.

All around awesome pedal

By Justin

from RI

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

I just bought this pedal the other day and I can say that this is, by far, the best heavy metal pedal I have used. the features that it has are great and easy to use. another thing i like about this pedal is that it doesnt drain batteries like the Boss pedals. if you are looking for a great sounding distortion pedal then look no further and buy this.

killer pedal!

By Lespaulismyhero8,000,000

from Rochester, MI

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

i've had this pedal for about a year now and it's boosted my distortion like crazy. the morph is amazing and through a powerful amp it works wonders. one thing though, get an adapter for this pedal. the battery doesn't work for long. i tried it on two different pedals and the battery stopped working after about an hour of play. so buy an adapter. this pedal supplies many different sounds. all great. buy this

IF YOU WANT METAL YOU GOT IT

By Brian

from New York

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

Nice pedal,I have been trying to get this sound for many years! I use a Marshall MG-DFX100 amp on the clean channel with my Fender Stratocaster. If you like metal this is the one to get!I can only imagine how crazy the sound would be with a guitar specifically designed for metal.Only one downfall I could find was the battery compartment is kinda tricky to get to as it is under the on/off pedal.I highly recommend this pedal,the morph control is the "beast"! The price is alo pretty good for the awesome metal sound your going to achieve no matter what amp or guitar you have.Smell the Fuzz!

I can't believe it!

By Bleeding Ears

from Salem, Oregon

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

I have a Korg Toneworks AX100G, and a Marshall G80R CD. I could never get that heavy metal sound I like..Megadeth, Pantera, Chunka chunka krunch! My Toneworks is ok, I don't play like I used to so it's just a part time hobby now. I was really looking hard at the Bos MT-2 Metal Zone, when I accidentally found this. This not only imitates the MT-2, but even more! I am now officially selling my Toneworks, this one pedal is all I need to play what I play. I wish I would have found this sooner! The Morph dial is an awesome little knob. You will not belive the different souns you get as you turn it! I don't know what else to say other than it's built like a tank, and sounds like an attack on a third world country, taking no prisoners. If you don't get one of these, you're not a true metal head!

Awesome pedal!

By Guitarslinger

from Weeki Wachee, FL

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

My best friend owns this pedal, and I use it all the time. I usually play it through a Line 6 Spider II 112, with either a Yamaha Pacifica or an Epiphone G400. It sounds great with both. Turning the Lo control up gives huge bottom end, while the Hi gives screaming tone. The morph control allows for a surprisingly wide range of sounds for a distortion pedal, at a great price. The pedal is also very solidly constructed. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an affordable solution to the typical amp's built-in effects.

Ehh...

By Colin

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

Ok... so here's how it really goes this pedal is great... i mean really great if you play metal and hardcore... but if you just want to get a little less distortion, it's imposable I've tried just about everything i can imagine to get this thing a little less but it just keeps on spitting out some crazy distortion. Overall a great pedal, which i love, but if your not into the crazy distortion then i wouldn't get this.

Great pedal

By Dimefan21

from Undisclosed

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

I recently purchased the Digitech metal master pedal and I am very impresed. First of all it is built like a TANK. You could drop it, hit it, and even try to smash it and it would still work. So, great for the traveling musician. Plus the X Series morph lets you find some crazy metal tones. Tou can go from deep and evil to high and squealing. So I advise you get this one and play around with it and see what you can do.

By Johnny Be Good

from Harrisburg, PA

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

This pedal is amazing. It made my little 30 watt Marshall sound like a stack. The sound is real powerful and gives you that new metal sound you'd need if u play like me. Along with that you can play classic rock. You can go from Lynyrd Skynyrd to Black Sabbath to Slipknot to As I Lay Dying like that. I highly recommend this pedal to anyone who plays any type of rock.

rocks hard!!

By rocker550

from Manalapan, NJ

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

the metal master pedal covers all kinds of metal. crank the morph knob all the way to the right and it sounds like pantera. do it to the left for a more black sabbath sounding distortion. (or go anywhere inbetween. the batteries definately dont last very long- which is why i recommend getting the adapter where u get unlimited metal distortion

I believed the hype and was disappointed.

By OZ

from Las Vegas

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

I bought this pedal for my rhythm guitarist. We played around for a week and could not get the sound we wanted. Played through a crate solid state and a marshal solid state head with different cabs and was missing a lot of crunch and sustainability. We always had it plugged into the power supply to make sure the pedal would not get affected by the quickly draining battery. Spend the extra ten bucks and get the boss metalcore pedal. Played with the boss pedal for 30 minutes and got better results. Please just check it out first before you buy.

For 10 years I've wanted what this pedal does:

By Cuttingteeth

from Memphis, TN

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

I am always skeptical of reviews, hence the fact that I played through this pedal with my guitar and through the cheapest amp in the store...because if that sounded good, I knew my amp would sound even better. Cut to the point: I like various bands and sounds like - Throwdown, Hum, Helmet, Smoking Popes, Weezer, NOFX, etc. Finally I have a distortion pedal that is capable of generating those such tones. It's not a feedback monster either. The tones are very clear and defined.

Fantastic

By Jon

from Edina, MN

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

This thing is amazing, it absolutely beats the competition. Most people think of Boss as having the best pedals, but this beats Boss' Metal Zone, easily. Why? Because it has the sounds producible with the Metal zone, and much more. The "Morph" knob makes it ridiculously versatile, but it's not for the faint of heart - there's no gain knob for a reason. If you're looking for a good pedal that can get you great rock and metal sounds, this is the way to go.

The Most Metal for Your Money

By iwannaSGboy7

from Jourdanton, TX

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

When I bought this pedal, I had high expectations, but what I got far exceeded anything I could have dreamed for at its price. It sounds great on every guitar and through every amp I've ever tried it on, and its dedicated mixer output makes recording one step easier. It is a little difficult to find the exact sound that you are looking for at first, but once you get used to the Morph feature it is quite easy to find your own unique tone. My only gripe is that it eats through most batteries within a couple of days. Just buy an AC adapter and this will easily be the best sounding distortion pedal in your lineup.

Metal Pedal Master

By Fxmusician

from Cleveland ,Ohio

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

You can get every sound from light to heavy distortion, from deep low end to high pitch screaming distortion, to sick, death metal distortion & everything in between. The metal master is highly adjustable to your taste. You can get the sounds of all the other pedals Dod death metal, Boss metal zone Pro co Rat ,you name it, chain saw. I love this pedal. I use it alot with my line 6 flextone & my hughes & kettner warp 7 half stack. I play both 6 & 7 string ibanez & schecter guitars.Built like a tank ,sturdy construction, and great for direct recording.

Every kind of metal

By eliobean

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

I bought this pedal because i couldnt get great metal distortion out of my all around pedal. This pedal is great! You can go from very deep bassey metal to crisp black sabbath type distortion. It has a knob called x-series morph, which changes the sound drastically. Highly recommended. I love it!

Every Band needs this!~!

By DPOWER

from Chicago,IL

Comments about Digitech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

If dont know this product, this is one of the X-series of DigiTech company. You can make chain, sounds exactly like you wanted it to be. Powerful pedal is what I can describe it. My suggestion is that buy this, you`ll love the quality, it may cost more than regular pedal but its worth it... You can use it on any Amp. Great Sound!
