    I don't like either too much. Check out the Guyatone Metal Monster. There are some videos on youtube. I have three of them I like it so much.

    I have a great mod for you. You drill an extra hole in the case of your distortion pedal and put in a 100K linear pot. On the outside, you install a good looking knob on the pot shaft and under the knob letter it with

    "More"

    If you're a bedroom rocker, then the MT-2 will do just fine. I hate the sound of them, but they're not horrid. I've been a fan of Line6 stuff for solid bedroom metal sounds. But... if you really want those sounds, you need a high gain tube amp.

    Which distortion?

    I wouldn't get either of those if I were you. MXR makes really nice pedals at reasonable prices. The Zakk Wylde (Even though I hate signature things) is definitely spot on for metal, and I would take MXR over Boss any day. The other guy that said Guyatone, yeah I agree with that as well, Guyatone makes some solid pedals. Also check out the EMMA Pisdiyauwot... (thats the best choice if you can afford it, they cost about $240.00 though) I don't know if it is out yet, but all of the other EMMA pedals have been nothing short of Bad Ass! And there all hand built in Denmark, so I know their built to a high quality standard both Sweden and Norway are know for their craftsmanship world wide.
