    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

    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:

            It rocks on electric guitar and I turned it up, max, and it does the job. I've always wanted one that would peak out that high and this one does the trick. It does give my acoustic/electric a split personality, so I'll stick with electric guitars to use it.

                This pedal sounds great and to my surprise has absolutely zero humming or hissing or noise at all when you turn it on. I couldn't tell that it was even on until I hit the strings, just as clear as my clean channel. The morph feature really shapes the tone nicely. Doesn't give you that over saturation that just blends your chords together when playing hard and fast, great sound definition note to note. Crunch from hell too! Love this pedal and it will be replacing my ever loved Boss MT-2 Metal Zone which I never thought I would be doing.

                It seemed as if a peice was missing from the pedal itself because whenever I stepped on it, it would never turn on. I have fixed it with some DIY, but that shouldnt have to happen to others. Great sound quality if your amp has poor built-in distortion.

                  Did an impulse buy on a SDOD, glad I did. I don't play a lot of metal, and generally prefer overdrives to distortion. My cover band plays a couple of Pantera songs that need an edgier tone, this does the trick. Great chunky sound, and the X- Morph provides useful tones throughout the range. You can't vary the amount of gain, but rolling off your guitars volume does the same thing. I also have the Bogner Uberschall, and prefer this for heavy metal tones. Great pedal for the price.

                    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.
