Rocktron makes some really cool products. I like this pedal because you have so much influence over the way you shape your distortion. You can pretty much do anything from screaming uber-metal destruction to softer blues-crunch with lots of thick and rich tones. The LED is super bright, so you'll always know if you left it on, and the housing and switch seem to be really durable. I can't stress enough how much I like the 4 EQ knobs. WIth low, middle, upper middle, and high you really can customize the hell out of the sound you want. It's a great pedal, and even if you can't buy it new, there's always a good used price out there too.

This is an awesome pedal for getting an edgy, aggressive metal tone. While this pedal is similar to Boss Metalzone as far as basic sound and knob options go, the sound from the Metal Planet is far superior in my opinion for the following reasons: 1. Full bodied, ballsy bass. The metalzone is pretty lacking in this area, but the metal planet shines. 2. Clear, useable mid-range. Great metal tones include a solid mid presence, and whereas the metalzone mid sounds plastic-y and super "quacky", the Metal Planet is a lot smoother.
Now, if there's an aspect of the Metal Planet that I'm least satisfied with, it's with the high end. To my ears it's a little on the harsh side. Maybe this is what you want, but I personally prefer a "sweeter", more melodic high end. At any rate, I work my way around this issue by simply turning the highs down a bit and it's fine.
Something else worth mentioning is the nature of the distortion. When I first heard this pedal I was shocked at how clear and defined the sound was; there is almost no hi-gain "fuzz" at all, only metal crunch and bite. So if you're looking for something to duplicate the sound of a mesa-boogie dual rectifier, look elsewhere. If you're looking for more of a Mesa Boogie Mark II C+ (think Metallica Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets albums)then the Metal Planet will definitely get you in the ball-park.
The last thing I'll add is that I'm playing out of a fender hotrod tube amp plugged into a 4x12 cab with celestion vintage 30 speakers. I mostly use a schecter guitar with an emg 81 in the bridge. Just so you have at least a rough point of reference for my comments.
To conclude this review, I think the Rocktron Metal Planet is an awesome pedal for raw, crunchy metal tones.

This is by far the best sounding distortion pedal I've ever used. I've tried so many different types, and this seems to be the only one that doesn't get on my nerves after 2 weeks or so. The only gripe I have is that Rocktron doesn't provide an AC adapter. Then again, most pedals don't come with one, but still, it would help set Rocktron apart from the rest of the pack. Especially since this pedal eats batteries like a champ. Maybe I'm just lazy, but I really hate having to unplug my guitar from the input jack so the battery doesn't run down, and sometimes I forget to do so, come back in the morning and then have to get a new battery. Oh well, that's relatively minor since the tone of this pedal more than makes up for any shortcomings. I've read that some people think the sound is thin, and I have to disagree. Just play with the EQ settings on the pedal and on your amp a little bit.

The first thing you should know about me as a reviewer is that I've been playing guitar for 24 years and I'm pretty picky about my gear. Most of the effects pedals on my pedal board are boutique brand ones like Strymon, Eventide, Pigtronix, etc. I don't normally buy pedals that are under $100. It's just not in my nature. However, I needed a buffer for my pedal board and this pedal looked fun and quirky. I had very low expectations for it. In fact, to reinforce the notion that is was probably useless for anything other than a buffer, it arrived in a clear plastic clam-shell package, like a toy. Just out of curiosity, though, I turned it on to see what it sounds like.

Now, I know that everyone's tone and amps are different, but with the EQ on this set with the Low all the way clockwise and the High and Mid/Mid Freq all the way counter-clockwise, it sounds GREAT with the Distortion turned all the way clockwise. Just set the Volume all the way counter-clockwise and turn it up as needed. Granted, as some people will point out, this isn't the most extremely high-gain pedal out there, but it definitely qualifies as high-gain. I ran this through my clean amp channel and it was plenty heavy enough to do thrash metal with. With a little boost or compression, I'm sure it would work great for death metal.

I've owned a number of high-gain distortion pedals over the years, but this one is probably the smoothest and most musical, even with the Distortion turned all the way up. I've been using it for hours now and I've played more tonight than I have in a long time. It's completely silent with the Volume halfway up (I didn't need to turn it up any higher) and it plays very nicely with my Strymon Mobius and Strymon TimeLine.
