    Here is the box I've backed into:

    1) Boss size or so or smaller
    2) $150 or less
    3) More gain than a Riot or SCOD
    4) Controls to add/reduce scoopage
    5) Please no can of bees buzzing
    6) Covers Mesa rectifier tones


    any suggestions?

    anything close?

    Keeley modded MT-2 sounds pretty close to what you're looking for

    Tech 21 Character Series US Steel is pretty cool... and covers the RectumFryers tones :D I have one, and it is my Metallica in a Box pedal
    The Barber Dirty Bomb is pretty good, too

    Tech 21 is a bit larger than I'd like. The Twilight MZ mod could do it.

    Anything else?

    To be honest, with the price and size constraints, I don't know of many pedals within these parameters that are going to nail recto tones.

    You could also look at the MythFX Minotaur but I still think from what I've heard, the Twilight MT-2 sounds better and has a few more tonal options.

    Try the Digitech Hardwire pedal.

    Now....if you want something that will cut through the mix loud and clear give the MXR Dime Distortion a shot. But its bigger than what your looking for.

    Yeah if you can spare a little more room and $30

    The Tight Metal kills, one of the best metal pedals I've heard period.

    for $169 new - Mad Professor Stone Grey is an amazing choice.

    hard to find anything GREAT under $150.

    i love the BJFe/Bearfoot Dyna Red, the various FETTO pedals, some nice ones....but they are more than $150

    The mythfx, although a great pedal... is probbably not quite the sound you are looking for.... it gets heavy but once you have the gain past a certain level it almost turns into (albeit a great sounding) fuzz.

    In this case, my vote is for an MT-2.... or I think greenhouse efx has a high gain pedal too.

    I highly recommend the Railhead TUA and the Stone Grey might get you there as well. I didn't keep my TUA but it gets much closer to the OKKO Dominator and Toneczar Openhaus than anything else for under $200.
