Metal zone: How I got ripped off

I know this is not ultimate guitar, but I wanted to tell you about how I got that shitty pedal when I bought my first electric guitar

Because I'm left handed, guitars for lefties are very expensive. Sadly when I went to the music shop to buy the guitar I had two options: a replica of a telecaster and a les paul which was original. My parents convinced me to buythe tele becasue the les paul was too expensive so I convinced myself to buy it because Eddie Vedder plays one.

Somehow I knew that the telecaster was not suitable for metal so I asked for a distortion pedal, I actually wanted to buy a super fuzz (one of the first things I learnt about pedals thanks to the smashing pumpkins) but the idiot convinced me to buy the metal zone and he even told me that I didn't even need it to tune it to drop D, so I was like "that sounds pretty cool i buy it"

My amp is a peavey (not a very famous brand but I think it sounds ok) well, here comes the problem: I couldn't understand why the pedal gave me so much distortion that the one I wanted, and sometimes I think it sounds too compressed, it's like playing in an empty room. So I think the next time I'll buy a better distortion pedal, if you have any suggestions I'm all ears.

I also want to buy a whammy bar but I don't know if it's reliable to buy one. And yeah, you cannot downtune the guitar beyond a drop c because the strings get too weak and it starts to sound too unstable.
