Okay metal heads.. this one is for you! I came across this nice deal on the MXR M116 Fullbore Metal pedal. This is probably one of the best all around *metal* pedals out there. It’s a swiss army knife of metal guitar tones with built in EQ for scooping the mids. Insane gain and a built in noise gate to keep things tight. The MXR Fullbore Metal lists for $169.99, and you usually see it available for $100, but is currently on sale at Amazon for $80.56. This pedal also ships with FREE super saver shipping.
Here is the official description of the MXR M116 Fullbore Metal pedal:
Ultimate riff power is yours with the FullBore Metal Distortion pedal from MXR. This compact but powerful device is all you need to unleash the most devastating contemporary metal guitar tones ever heard. The FullBore pedal turbo-charges your guitar signal with lethal amounts of ultra high gain. This is combined with a built-in Noise Gate to knock out the noise associated with extreme gain levels while also adding definition and tightness to syncopated metal riffs.Extensive EQ controls, with Bass, Mid, sweepable Mid-Freq and Treble knobs let you sculpt your tone with fiendish precision. The additional Scoop switch provides an instant high and low frequency boost thatll rumble the room while also adding clarity. Available from MXR, the world leader in analog pedal technology.
