This is the thing, I havent really bought a single piece of equipment for the past year or so and I really need something that would help settle the GAS in my system. A good distortion pedal(analog) would really serve my purpose. I intend to make use of the FX loop(send/return) in my processor to connect the distortion pedal which will inturn enable me to use features of both my processor AND the pedal . Equipment: a) Ibanez RG 370DX with stock pups b) Zoom GFX8 c) D'addario strings(standard) Metal tones that interest me: a) Nevermore b) Death c) Arch Enemy d) Evergrey e) Opeth f) Symphony X g) Martyr I did a little research myself and kinda narrowed it down to: a) AMT Metalizer http://www.amtnorthamerica.com/products/product_pages/metalizer.html b) Line 6 Uber Metal http://line6.com/tonecore/uberMetal.html c) Digitech Death Metal http://www.digitech.com/products/DeathMetal.htm d) Landmine http://www.landminepedals.com/ e) Zoom Tri Metal http://www.samsontech.com/products/productpage.cfm?prodID=159 Need you guys to help me choose the best among the aforementioned pedals. Also, if you know of a pedal which sounds better than the ones mentioned, let me know.
