I was looking for thick distortion with smooth gain. This is not it. I thought every setting was weak. I am using a fender strat with Dimarzio Super Distortion in the bridge..cts pots etc. My Boss Drive Zone sounds much better than this. Maybe I just need to add a tube screamer for more gain..but this pedal sounded weak. I really wanted to like it. I paid for 2 day shipping to rock this thing out. As soon as I put a battery in it and hooked it up I almost wanted to unhook it. The gain wasn't smooth. Highs were too high and mids didn't help at all. This pedal is a one trick pony for metal I guess.

dude, get this pedal

By Al-X

from Undisclosed

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Metal Muff with Top Boost Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

this thing is great, it can sound extremely metal but can also do classic rock. it has so many features to accompany any preferred sound. i was told that the boost is for soloing but it sounds terrible, although im a rythum guitarist just letting you lead guitarists know. i was very happy with it the day i got it. if you have the money and play rock or metal its definitely worth it.

Two for the price of one!

By Michael B.

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Metal Muff with Top Boost Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

Metal requires a certain attitude that can't be had in Boss DS-1. You need the right bass response, scooped mids and creamy highs. This pedal has a lot of capabilities but by far the best feature of this Metal monster is the Top Boost. It's as good as having two pedals in one enclosure.

BANDCAMP 2006

By Old as dirt Rocker

from Maryland

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Metal Muff with Top Boost Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

Metal explosion in a little black box. I use it to drive my cube 30 @ home and it turns my cube into a Mini-Monster.If that is your kind of sound this IS your kind of stomp box. Not to mention that the top boost will cut you in half if you are not careful. I set my amp full on and let the MM volume control drive it. Gets a little thicker sound that way. Don't know how electro-harmonix is going to out-do this one. Great box.

sweetness

By sam vang

from akron,ohio

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Metal Muff with Top Boost Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

i have owned this distortion pedal for many months now. this is THE distortion pedal. great for any genre of music that requires massive amounts of distortion like metal. it sounds even better through a vst amp modeling program. i have had alot of my equipment that broke on me in the past, this thing is built like a tank it just wont break. forgot to mention that you can make any amp sound expensive with this thing.

nice crunch

By dave

from austin tx

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Metal Muff with Top Boost Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

This thing is sweet. takes a bit to get used to but turn your amp to the clean channel and take your trebble and mids down . and start tweaking the knobs i run the distortion at 12 o clock bass maxed top boost 2 o clock and man this thing is insane i run it through a b52 at212 and if i turn the sound up to half my whole block can hear it sounds great on my ibanez RG with EMG 85/81 pickups

Pure metal!

By Tristan Baeza

from Florida

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Metal Muff with Top Boost Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

So I bought this pedal as a christmas gift for myself. All I can say is "Wow" this pedal surprised me from the get go. The versatility is great, from hard rock, to metal, to even screamo. I toyed around with this pedal for a couple weeks and it was great. I ran it through a bass amp so I can really hear the power of this thing and it will surely blow you away. The quality of this pedal is really great. It's made out of metal and has good weight to it. So it won't be sliding around when using it. It comes with a top boost that increases the mids and treble of the sound. I don't recommend using the top boost because it muds up the sound a bit. It's a little pointless if you ask me. But everything else is great. 100% analog and the bypass works great. this is a must buy for anyone looking for a distortion pedal.

simply awesome

By mhrobinson87

from moss point, ms

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Metal Muff with Top Boost Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

I own several...okay...I own WAYYYY too many pedals so when I saw this one I had to try it. The guy at the store told me he liked it because he could still pick out individual notes with this pedal verses just a blur of fuzz with some or most of the others. He was 100% spot on with his assessment. Not only can you hear the notes but I swear there is some compression built in to this pedal as well even though it's not advertised. Palm muted pedal tones become fat and aggressive and you can hear the chords clearly. I hooked this up to a super reverb amp just for fun and with my Gibson Alnico's I swear it copies the sound of Randy R from Ozzy almost perfectly. I definately reccomend this pedal as a first choice for a distortion pedal above even the TS-808 tube screamer which I own as well. The top boost is a nice feature but you don't need to turn it up much to get the effect.

intense stuff

By LesPaulMan95

from NJ

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Metal Muff with Top Boost Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

this pedal is so crazy that its should be off limits!!! the only problem is when you boost the gain and put on the top boost it gets feedback and its sounds sort of unnatural but its a great pedal for Kerry King and Dimebag Darrel influenced players

It broke

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Metal Muff with Top Boost Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

This is an alright pedal. The price is a little bit high. It sounds nice, but on certain settings it just sounds weird. What i am really dissapointed about is that it broke after having it for just about 3 months. It was working fine one night and the next day I went to turn it on and it just let off a loud buzzing noise, and I could barely hear the music unless I strummed really hard, and even then it sounded really bad.

Molten Metal it's got

By ScottPayer

from Royal Oak, MI

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Metal Muff with Top Boost Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

I was surprised to find this much craziness in one pedal for this price. It has the best metal crunch I have heard from a single pedal. The individual notes of the chords can still be heard. Normally I would use a compressor to get more sustain but this one doesn't need it. It has noticeable hum when you are not riffing but I think that's normal. I gave it a 4.0 on quality cause I watched the right hand L.E.D. dim and then die the first time I used it. (The top boost LED still works fine.) The tonal controls seem to all have a nice effective sweep and I'm sure if you are playing in a band, the top boost will cut your lead through the rest of the noise. If you turn the drive all the way down, I still think you will be satisfied with it for more classic rock sounds but there are perhaps other pedals better for classic. For the price, it?s astounding.

Awesome Pedal...

By Billy Michiel

from Atlanta Ga.

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Metal Muff with Top Boost Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

This is a great distortion pedal for metal but that's about all that it can do. It has much better quality distortion than any others that Ive heard. Top boost is great for solos because the top boost adds a ton of treble, but if your looking for the tone of a Marshall, then this pedal alone cant do that much. I run my guitar through this and Boss's new Metal Core, and with that and a clean amp, you can craft about any type of distortion. (Of course, it helps when your clean amp is a 1966 all tube Princeton Reverb!)

sick pedal

By matt papasan

from brentwood california

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Metal Muff with Top Boost Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

this pedal is one of the best pedals ive played. Our second guitarists, who throws in some solos as well, can kill on this thing and its a pretty descent price as well. so my advice to you, buy it.

Best All Around Pedal I Have - "5 Plus Stars"

By Kevin Buck

from Granbury

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Metal Muff with Top Boost Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

My son tried all of these type of pedals out at our local Guitar Center, while I listened in on them (took over an hour). We purchased the pedal that day for him and his metal playing. Based upon this I purchased one about a few months later and it is the best pedal I have in my pedal box as I can control what I want and kick it in with a stomp and keep my Princeton set normally. Get one of these pedal first and it may cancele out your needs for some other pedals you are looking at. For the price it beats the you know what out of a few of my Boss pedals, which I really don't need any more. Any offers?

Dirty metal

By Monica Cappas

from Pensacola, FL

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Metal Muff with Top Boost Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

This pedal will give you some great tones! I found it to be a bit bassey and a little dirty, which for my needs is just fine. If you are looking for a tighter metal pedal this one is not it. Im playing through a peavy valve king half stack and 4 different gutars, all of which have SD Blackouts installed. Im happy with the pedal but it may not be for everyone.

Not nearly as good as I hoped

By valhalla76

from Charleston, SC

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Metal Muff with Top Boost Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

I didn't find this pedal all that great. The boost adds an abnoxious volume spike, so it isn't really practical to swith back and forth between low distortion and high distortion. Without the boost turned on, it is muffled sounded and you need to use an EQ pedal. With the boost on it is screeches to much.

not for bass guitar

By Moe

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Electro-Harmonix XO Metal Muff with Top Boost Distortion Guitar Effects Pedal:

i bought this thing about 7 months ago, thinking that it's a bass pedal (because it's placed in the bass effects section on this website) but after doing a little research on this thing, i finally figured why it didn't pickup my low B and D string signals, because it's a guitar pedal. however when i tried it on my guitar, it sounded very.....distortiony, which is what it's supposed to sound like, right? anyways, the awesome features on this pedal are the top boost knob (which sounds better than anything i have ever heard) and the distrotion knob which if it's turned on all the way, will practically make your face melt. overall, it's too pricey and meant for guitar signals only
