    I am looking into a high gain pedal for that metal side of me. I usually play blues and Black Crowes type rock, but I sometimes love to play some metal from Black Sabbath to Opeth. :dude So anyone make one? If not any pedal makers who would make me one? Please let me know.

    Thanks.

    Actually none of those pedals suggested with get to "Opeth" levels of distortion... if I was going to go for that sort of tone, I'd try a Keeley Twilight Mod Metal Zone or ask Sean at lovepedal if he could cook you up something. The new BlackStar distortion from Subdecay seems to get pretty heavy too.

    I second the EMMA Reezafratzitz recommendation. It can get some brutal metal distortion sounds.

    HomeBrew Electronics Big D. It's extremely flexible. Thousands of distortion tones in that pedal.

    Another vote for the Hermida Grinder if you can find one, they don't cost a whole lot but delivers the goods!

    I don't agree - it's $99 worth of high end, ice-pick, buzzy distortion at loud volumes -- :mad: It was Uber-Crappy for me.

    I run my tonebone hot british (excellent pedal) into an eq pedal for thrash tones. PM me if you want a video of me doing it

    MI Audio Tubezone? I have one on the way and will see if it is what your looking for. For my less metal/heavy rock stuff I just use a BB preamp and an RC booster.

    Haven't tried it yet, but the metal muff looks nice. I've heard lotsa good things and a few complaints about it. Depends on what your after, but worth a try maybe. Not boutique but could still be nice.

    If it were me, my money would be on the:
