    +1 on the above advice, the number one mistake from almost all beginner metal guitarists when using the Metal Zone (including myself, except I left the Mids at 12.00) and the bad sound it leads to is one of the main reasons why that pedal is then commonly disliked.

    +1 on that too, people would be surprised at how thin guitar tracks sound on their own if separated from bass and kick drum tracks in the mix on pro-level metal recordings.
