It's possible to get peter steele's sound with the boss metal zone. first off, turn up the lows at 2 'o clock and turn down the highs to 9 'o clock. set the mid-range control to 11 'o clock. set the mid-frequency control to 1 'o clock. and set the gain to 11 'o clock. and set the level control to your liking. also add a chorus pedal. peter steele uses distortion with chorus. if your concern about low-end losses, an effects loop or a blender pedal should fix that up. hope this helps you out.
it is possible i do it myself... i have an MT2 Metal Zone, a DD3 Digital delay and a Boss CEB3 for chorus, although he uses the CH1 guitar chorus version of it. just email me and ill send you a pic of my board if youre still looking for it!
