long ago when I was a teenager who didn't truly appreciate the craft that is guitar tone,
I was given a Metal Muff by a family member not ling after beginning guitar lessons.
But you know how it is when you're 14..... Of course I cranked everything up to max and slammed away on some powerchords.
I ended up frying the pedal by plugging the wrong adapter into it one day (pay attention to what you're doing, kids)

9 years later, after developing a sense of what is and isn't tasteful tonewise,
I decided to make a trade on kijiji for another Metal Muff, just to see how things stack up against my memory of it and how i dial in my tones currently.

It definitely satisfies my lust for fierce chugging riffs, and it cleans up a lot nicer than i remember being able to at the age of 14 lol

I can say this pedal is easily a "less is more" type of thing,
It has the ability to be total distortion overkill,
But if you dial it back and take some proper time to find a good balance of frequencies, it screams quite nicely.

I'm glad to have this piece of gear back in my arsenal of tone

I've always found that my favourite (and still crushing) Muff tones tend to come with the gain before noon. The Metal Muff is definitely a sleeper model IMHO.

Yeah its definitely a pedal that does more than can do more than it needs to, and if you're not careful it sounds a bit too rugged.
I personally keep the gain around 9:00 and I run an overdrive into it dialed way down
