      This is a very versatile distortion pedal In short, it replaced my Boss DS-1. I've been able to get some great tones out of it. With the drive setting low, it has an edgy blues drive or classic rock drive. It definitely has more distortion than i'll ever use, but thats what i like about it. It has loads of headroom. The noise gate works well, but if you have it on 2, the notes like to fizzle out if you're trying to sustain a tone for more than 3sec. The 3 settings of Metal, Pulverize, and Insane really shift the EQ and Volume differently. If i want a mid scooped rhythm tone, I like to use Insane. If i want a Metallica-esque tone, i'll select Metal. If i want a midsy tone with some lows added in, i'll choose Pulverize. I'm on Pulverize most of the time becuase i love mids and it gets nice and growly.

      The only thing that i didnt like was how the mids knob was set up. Its not like your amp's knob where all the way up is boosted and all the way down is scooped. The mid knob is more like a mid frequency knob. I noticed this about 3 months after playing with this knob. I noticed that turning it up makes more of a "chak chak chak" sound when you palm mute the low end. I took out the lows and turned the mid knob all the way down, trying to get an icepicky tone. Instead i got "djenty" style tone with some nice mid-lows. If you want to control the volume of the mids, use the Scoop knob. That one made sense to me. Scoop the mids, turn it up. Boost the mids and turn it down.

      The variance of tones i get from this pedal is crazy. I play everything from blues to br00talz ;) Its my main distortion pedal if i cant get the tone with my amp. It has been very responsive with the amount of distortion applied. If i pick softer, the distortion lessens, harder, and it increases.
      I have used this pedal with my two guitars: 7 string with blackouts and OFR. and Ibanez quilted maple with Steve vai pups in 2 steps down. I've used it in my home studio and through my PV Ultra 112 combo. Sounds great no matter what i put it through so far!

      ok first of all... don't let the sound clips fool you. I must have gotten a dud or something because the volume control is totally off wack... the volume is very low, i.e., I have to turn the volume on the pedal all the way up to get it to be close the equal to the volume to my other pedals that are on 1/4 - 1/2 volume. I have a Digitech Grunge and a Rocktron Zombie and I love both of them... don't get me wrong, I like the distortion pretty well on the Uber Metal and the pinch harmonics on the "Insane" are in fact "Insane" and the variety of distortion capabilities are amazing... but it sounds a lot different on the sound clips. it is very well built and sturdy although the knobs are crap, they'll break off easily. I'm sending the Uber Metal back and hopefully get another.. but right now I'm hoping its a faulty pedal because if its supposed to be that way then that is just a big load of blown money. And if you are looking for a good sound Metal or any kind of metal, hardcore, heavy rock, I would strongly recommend the Rocktron Zombie and the Digitech Grunge. they sound amazing and they're cheaper. and just to give you a random tip, to make the pedals, i.e. Zombie, Grudge, Uber Metal, etc. sound heavier, more clear, more amazing, just add some compression. turn the compression knob on 1/2 and add the distortions, that's is if you have a compression pedal. but anyway's ... I LOVE Line6 and would trust them to my life, and Line6 quality but please, I recommend the Grundge and Zombie, go with one of those.

          BEST PEDAL EVER!!!! If you happen to have a peavey vypyr amp, set your amp to Plexi, and put on the clean tones. Then push this bad boy and listen to the metal tones destroy your mind!! It sounds like a whole new guitar! It is amazing!! It might take an hour or so to find the tones you like from the pedal, but from there on, it is absolute epicness. Be sure to stock up on 9 volt batteries though

          Best.... Pedal.... EVER!!!! Even if you have the gain all the way down the sound is still amazing! I got it for Christmas because before I was just playing through my amp, but never again. This is the best pedal hands down. And don't even get me started on the built-in noise gate.

          Great Distortion With Gate

          By Nihilist

          from Nepal

          Comments about Line 6 ToneCore Uber Metal Distortion Pedal:

          It is a great distortion pedal, with built-in gate. I think every distortion should have one. It has three distortion selections but I use only one, Pulverize.I read the previous review about mid not being scooped, but it does. I don't use scooped mids when live anyway, you won't sound distinct and clear. Mine is not quiet at all, It's very loud and distinct in fact.My Rig used to be BC Rich NT Jr.V to Uber Metal To Ibanez Toneblaster half stack and that was enough to get that beefy sound that we all metalheads look for.I used to have Boss Metalzone, but I had to use compressor with it to get that beef, but since I started using this pedal, compressor was off my chain.

          Uber Metal

          By ZElite

          from SF, CA

          Comments about Line 6 ToneCore Uber Metal Distortion Pedal:

          For the amount of time I used this pedal it was awesome. Thought I'd never need another distortion pedal again. Then one day...Was using it all the time, got myself a couple new pedals, added them to the rig and now the Uber won't work, either in a sequence or just by itself. Plugged in the LED comes on so it has power. I hear a pop when I touch my cable to the output but when I connect it to the amp and run the cable from the guitar I can't pick up any incoming signal. Oh well. R.I.P. I've been interested in trying out an MXR Fullbore Metal anyway. This isn't my first Line-6 product to eventually lead me to regret my purchase. I also got a UX2 Audio Interface that came with about 5 computer programs, all of which were either garbage or "lite" versions, in other words, useless. Don't listen to their claims of solving latency either. LIES.Now I'm just waiting for my ToneCore flange to die (MXR Micro Flange, here I come)

          Comments about Line 6 ToneCore Uber Metal Distortion Pedal:

          i bought this pedal because i heard my friends line 6 amp and it had these distortion settings. It sounded bad ass. So I bought this with high hopes of a mean chunky distortion , honest to god it was the worst sounding distortion i had ever heard. total fuzz, no beef at all . the scoop option is absolutely worthless, adds more fuzz. 4x12, and it sounded like fuzz paper.only tolerable setting was mids all the way up, scoop all the way down. this pedal is worthless, overpriced and worthless. do not buy, you will be disappointed. i did find the best sounding distortion however, boss metal core with boss noise suppressor....just get those 2 items, you will not be disappointed in any way, period. the only thing it had going for it was the noise gate, as you need one for real distortion....but too bad the sound was horrible....needs all sound gated permanently.

          this pedal is amazing, but there is one thing i can say about it, it is really quiet the only way to get the volume level you need if your gonna be playing with drums vocals bass ect. you have to run it thru a mixer which is what i have done, other than that it is a great pedal and i would recommend to anyone! its a must buy!

          It's all about the TONE.

          Comments about Line 6 ToneCore Uber Metal Distortion Pedal:

          It has a ton of different distortion possibilities. The built in noise gate cuts the feedback really nicely, wherever the pedal is in the effects chain. The parametric EQ is the best feature on it, and it has a quite a lot of them. The mid scoop is where it's at, though. It really adds the perfect dimension to all of the different distortions.
