I guess this thing can pull off metal, but in all honesty, this pedal lacks a lot in clarity and versatility.Too much low end is muddy, but if you back it off, there isn't enough. The Morph knob is the high point with this pedal, as you CAN get a few cool sounding tones... but this simply doesn't sound that good.I played this in front of a Randall RH300 head with a Randall RS125CX cab. I play a lot of heavy music: metalcore, deathcore, death, hardcore, punk, hard rock, etc. I like my gain, but not from this. The DigiTech GRUNGE is far superior, though I won't use it for extreme metal.Ultimately, I found this pedal a disappointment. There are many dirt boxes far superior to this, including its cheaper brother the Grunge. Perhaps it just didn't agree with my particular amp, but the EQing on this is not good (needs a Mid control in the worst way). I've played many distortion pedals and this one was one of the worst, though not THE worst I've played.

Comments about DigiTech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

This pedal is great for the heavy metal/thrash/death metal playing styles. It has a wide range of distortion. As much chunk as you want. The low end is the best feature to me. Depending on your tuning and amp you may need to dial it back. Compared it to the new distortion pedals and this one has the heavy sound. Do not get this for anything but the heavy stuff or you will be disappointed. Get the 9volt adapter battery life about 4 hours that's no joke! Thanks Tom

    Comments about DigiTech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

    I found that this pedal lacked definition in riffs. When i play anything but open chugs it barely lets anything shine through. If you're in a breakdown band then go for it. I play anywhere from drop D to drop B and there's never a point where i get a decent sound. Through passive pickups or active. And trying to roll off your volume to get less gain doesn't work at all. I'd rather use something else.

    Comments about DigiTech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

    The second best pedal around. Only the BOSS Metal Zone out-does it. Great sound and more simplified than the Metal Zone. Great for beginner and intermediates. On mine, the 9V connector broke after a year of use, but why not connect to a power supply instead. I've done that with mine and had no other problems.

    All kinds of heavy in a small package

    Comments about DigiTech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

    Now normally I'm not a huge fan of Digitech pedals because in my experience they often are too noisy but this one is the best thing I've heard out of Digitech yet. I've played around with their Grunge model before I got this pedal and now I can honestly say I'm never turning back! The fact that this pedal can model a wide variety of sounds sets it apart from all the others. Spend your money on a true metal distortion effect. Get this one.

    XXM Metal Master

    By Superman-1XT05

    from The Fortress of Solitude

    Comments about DigiTech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

    This is a fantastic pedal, for most situations. You can get nearly any tone you desire, from creamy bluest tones to thick, heavy death metal tones. It's got a very clear and articulated characteristic. There's really only a few tones I use, but it's nice that I've got more options. Now, if you're looking for that fantastic Periphery-ish tone (which is my ideal tone) you won't be finding that here, but if you want any sort of typical high-gain tone(i.e., Pantera, Dream Theater, Megadeth to The Faceless, The Arusha Accord, etc.) then look no further. My only complaint is that this pedal eats up batteries like crazy.

    A true Metal Master

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about DigiTech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

    I dont know where to start. This pedal is simply beautiful. You can model this pedal to ANY kind of metal, from the light and simple, to the deep demonic chaotic chord changes that are Death Metal. The morph nob(far right on the pedal) changes from extreamlly scooped from 7'o clock to 10'o clock, to a chunky rythm from 12 to 3, then a totally insane distortion that will blow away the compition. I think personally that it sounds much more natural with a battery, even though you get an average 3 to 4 hours out of it. But using an adapter, you get a more digital industrial sound out of it. Overall, I must say that this is one of the most versitial pedal I've ever used. For the price, this is a hidden jewel among the hundreds of other "metal masters." I highly recommend this pedal to ANYONE wanting to play metal, or even hard rock.

    This thing is awsome

    By Wolf

    from Pasadena Texas

    Comments about DigiTech XMM Metal Master Heavy Metal Distortion Pedal:

    I have not recieved this pedal yet, but I have played them at the guitar store and always managed to play solos that sounded great. If you feel like there is too much noise when playing a solo I suggest that you turn the high tone close to the middle, and turn the bass on your amp down and not turn the mid tone all the way down. This will help to keep feedback from beeing too loud. And for those of you who have problems with the battery, STOP USING THE BATTERY! Get yourself an AC adaptor. And just use a surge protector, and just turn the power off. This will also save you a lot of money and time. The 9 volt battery drains faster than other batteries anyway. So I suggest this stomp-box for all you metalheads out there!
