Nu Metal Pedals

This seems to be going against the grain but between my Guytron FV and CAA OD-100, I have all of the other tonal fronts covered to my personal satisfaction. I do however occasionally get the urge or need to play the Dropped tuning scooped Nu or Death Metal type of stuff:dude.

I can get the tones fairly close with the OD-100 but it requires some substantial EQ adjustments that don't sit well with my normal tonal preference.

I would like to find a pedal that will work with either a clean channel setting or to shape a classic rock type of gain channel.

I see tons of boutique boosts, OD's, fuzzes and TS clones but no metal pedals.

What recommendations do you have.

Hughes and Kettner Warp Factor... cheap death metal in a round box and then you hit the warp switch and instant Slipknot and Korn... not exactly, but close enough and it won't cost ya more than $100... I don't really know of ANY other products besides it that really aim for the massive low-end, low-mid, oversaturated gain sound... even modded metal-zones don't come close to that sound in my opinion. Only thing else I can think of is MAYBE that Mesa Boogie pre-amp pedal that was out quite a few years ago, but even then I'm not sure if it nails the modern Nu Metal sound. Hope ya find what you're looking for.

Damage Control Demonizer...not cheap, but pretty much the best high gain pedal I've tried. Lots of gain and very flexible pre and post EQs.

Give the Danelectro Black Licorice pedal a shot. Nasy buzz plus octave down. Surprisingly good for the money.

Line 6 UberMetal.

I tried that H&K Warp Factor and hated it....but in all fairness I have a Rectifier, so maybe I'm just spoiled.

Plus the uber scooped thing isn't really my bag, so maybe that's why I hated it.


A buddy of mine is big into death metal, and he's pretty happy with his stock Metal Zone.....


Also, the Tech21 SansAmp GT-2 can do a pretty good Mark style boogie high gain. It doesn't have the same low end punch as a Rectifier, but it's good for death metal style speed licks.

TriMetal :dude

I'm not really into metal, but I still keep the TM on my board. Even with the gain relatively low, it's still the 'heaviest' thing out there. I haven't tried the demonizer, but it kills the H&K stuff, the ubermetal, any flavor of MT-2, zoom driver, and the ibanez metal stuff.

Very touch sensitive, all analog, great bypass, and dead silent when not playing.

Track one down if you can.

+1 for the TriMetal.. much better than the Metal Zone or the Ibanez stuff to be sure. The Zoom HL-01 (HyperLead) is also similar, with a bit tighter bass. Seems just as gain-y as the Tri though.. It works well with dropped C tuning on a Les Paul for the Scandinavian death metal tones I dabble with on occasion.

I don't know - I think the Trimetal and the hyperlead are pretty different. IMO the bass is tighter on the TM, and it has more grind to the sound. The Hyperlead is also voiced differently, it has a smoother, more compressed sound. More of a lead tone compared to the TMs tight, grinding rhythm.

I haven't spent much time with the hyperlead, it didn't do much for me - the TM I keep coming back to, there's nothing else like it...
