Go for an early model like the 505 .. i think its that one. I know one of them has a good destortion setting on it. THe pedal you have now hasnt. Also one of the boss pedals has good destortion settings from what i've heard.
By virtue of their electrical properties, tubes generate a special waveform when they're saturated, which is why tube engineering has tremendous tonal advantages over solid state or DSP solutions, particularly for crunch and lead sounds. Tubes enter the saturation zone gradually or softly, which lends tube-driven tone its trademark yet totally unique character.

Boss makes more than one. The only ones I've actually seen around have been the metal zone and that crazy red thing.

Stay away from Zoom. They're terrible.

Look into a multi-effects pedal. They contain everything you would ever need with effects, and for a fraction of the price.

Personally, I like the GNX3, but you can also look at Boss GT-6 and quite a few others. Check out Ebay.

I remember reading somewhere on the net, that for a good metal sound (I've tried it and works nicely), is to get an EQ, put the BASS all the way up, MIDS all the way down, and HIGHS either centre or all the way up.

No, actually that sounds like crap. For metal you need your mids a decent ways up. That will give you more clarity, you'll cut through the drums and bass better, and your tone will be more aggressive.

It WILL sound good at low volumes, but if you're planning on gigging you need mids.

The bass guitar is supposed to occupy the low end frequencies while the guitar takes care of the mids. So you won't really "cut through" (be heard very well), if you scoop the mids.

But it will sound nice if you're just playing in your room or something, you'll get a nice heavy sound, just don't plan on trying that at a gig.

Wayne Static of Static-x, interview by Marshall for Marshall Law #5
"I think one of the mistakes a lot of metal guitarists do is sweep out the mids too much," he states. "That might sound cool when you're playing by yourself in the bedroom but when you're trying to compete with a live drummer, bass and all that other stuff, the midrange really has to be in there."



That looks familiar.
