i bought it at guitar center for 100 bucks, came out to 107 with tax, i bought it cuz i need heavy gain that sounds good
its got a noise gate that has three settings; off-1-2, and it actually works, its got more knobs than the average distortion pedal and theyre pretty sensitive which is cool cuz u can get a lot of tones, its also got three modes too, but be warned - this is for metal and metal only (well actually this would work for any high gain sound in general)
this thing will inhale a 9 volt in an hour, u need the adapter, but i would get an adapter for any gear i own so this doesnt bug me
its metal alright, it weighs like 3 pounds easy, the battery compartment is alright i guess, but not the best design in my opinion, knobs seem like a good kick would take em off
this thing sounds killer, fellow gainiacs with very little money take note and get down to your local guitar store to check this out, it covers everything from bodom to slayer to pantera, best pedal out right now for sure.
Tried this pedal at a local guitar shop with a friend, he bought it and I bought one just a few days later. It instantly struck us both as a "must have" product.
It usually runs $100 but it's worth every penny.
Whats not to like?! This is the distortion pedal we've all been waiting for. Where the others fall short, this pedal steps it up with unbelievable amounts of distortion, power, and control. There's 6 knobs (level, gain, high, mid, mid-scoop, and low) and they are all quite sensitive. The slightest turn makes a world of change. Any (and I do mean ANY) sound is achievable. There's also 3-way switch for 3 types of distortion to choose from (Metal, Pulverize, and Insanity), all are very capapble, flexible and very cool. There's also a 2 level noise gate that is quite effective in cleaning up the sound when useing a lot of palm muteing. If every other dist. pedal has left you feeling unsatisfied, head to www.line6.com and find out more. Better yet, go find a store that has 'em and try one out, I know that when you do, you'll be $100 poorer but you'll be swimming in unlimited distortion. Oh, it's also built like a tank, it weighs almost 3 pounds!!! All metal construction.
There is nothing to dislike about this product.
Top f'n notch. WW3 will come and go, roaches and my Uber Metal pedal will inherit the earth.
I put this in the "dont ask, just buy" catagory! Definitly check it out now!

Digital distortion pedal with three selectable voicings. Effective EQ (parametric mid) and integrated noise gate (also very effective)
No problems. Or almost (see below)...
The sound of this stomp box changed radically after buying a new amp.
- I first had a Roland Cube 30 solid-state amp and the result was very good: guitar (peavey wofgang US) directly into the Uber Metal, and stomp box into the amp (clean channel). The result sounds very nice (I use the metal mode since I usually play classic hard rock) with a long sustain. Only the low-end is a bit too light. The tone is rather cold (it also due to the Cube) but easily usable.
- I then bought a Valveking 112 tube amp: the result is disastrous!! Very shrilling sound, almost no low frequencies, etc. I tried to connect it into the FX loop of the amp: the sound was a bit better with more lows but less gain and less sustain... Surprisingly, the lead channel of the 112 gives better results. So, I don't use the Uper Metal!!
Try this stomp box with your amp because you could get bad surprises.
I was very satisfied with my Roland Cube, but the pedal is useless with the Valveking.
I bought a Vox Satchurator later and had no problems. I connect it to the clean channel and I get a good distortion sound.
I don't know if you would experience the same problem with other tube amps: just try it out with your own amp before buying it.

What a very simple pedal, turn the knobs and it sounds!
The knob of level as very sensitive require a little practice to use
The function scoop affecting the middle frquence select the knob of the same name is very interesting and deserves to linger
Integrates noise gate is very useful, no breath!
The sounds are expressive, not cold at all!
The mode most appropriate Mtal the sonority of the 70s and 80s
The pulverized fashion would be close to the distortion of a tube amp
The insane mode, then, is the avoinerie a gain standard accuracy of all distortion, sharp and full of bass, my prefers!
Humbuckers are simple but recommands ca also sounds worse but it sounds!
With active microphone is even better
I've had a few weeks I am fully satisfied!
dtrone it is by far the boss metal zone for a much lower price!
I pay 95 report qualitprix good line6 thank you, I care
A buy urgently
