    If you boost the volume and leave the gain some what low it should be pretty crunchy. Maybe try getting a EQ and a Sonic Maximizer to drive it more.

    Do I really need to pick those up or is there a way to pull it off with out the pedals..... but if not should get something like a BBE Sonic stomp and a Boss EQ pedal.... I'm looking for a sound somewhere on the line of Metallica(...and justice for all album) and Children of bodom

    No it was just an idea to get a more "natural" amp tone. Are you blasting the amp? Because if you aren't the amp really isn't breathing to its full extent. :rock:

    maybe try a tube screamer? the 808 reissue is a staple of my rig.

    I have the same head, for a metal tone try what I use.. In order;
    Deep Switch ON
    Tone Shift ON
    be in Lead 2 channel (max gain)
    Presence 6
    Treble 7
    Mid 4ish
    Bass 7
    Gain on 7

    if thats too buzzy, then switch it to Lead 1, and depending on the sound you're going for try putting the tone shift back out

    for that amp i always went for the mids on 10, tone shift and deep OFF. you'll cut through a lot more in a live setting. too much bass and no mids will bury your sound on stage no matter how loud you get things will sound jumbled.
    KT77 tubes might help you get more clarity of notes and definition in your distortion. will give it some more balls too.
    i agree with the dudes suggesting the EQ's and the tube screamers also.

    I ended up messing around with the amp a little more and I found a setting I really liked....
    Presence 10
    treble 7
    middle 7
    bass 6
    deep IN
    tone shift IN
    gain 5
    lead 2

    I gives me a great sound.. esp sounds bad ass when playing master of puppets......Thanks for the help...I'll prob end up buying a tube screamer and a EQ in a day or two

    What does the tube screamer actually do?? Just give it more kick??

    ps i'm blasting the shit out of my amp now....louder the better..F**k the neighbors
