Well I don't have another guitar to see if my amp is messed up, nor do i have another amp to see if my guitar is messed up

my amp works and sound comes out but not as loud as its supposed to and my distortion channel sounds like some pretty weak overdrive rather than just about as distorted as my amp will go
and i have to turn it up really loud to get noise out of it


what could the problem be or how can i figure it out?

not to be a dick, but make sure the volume on your guitar is turned up. you'll have to get another guitar to run through your amp if you really want to test it. maybe the volume pot on your guitar is going bad.

I was in a nu-metal band when I was 15. I hated the top 3 strings (G,B, and E). I wondered why guitars even had them.

take your guitar to a music store and plug in there. if all goes well then it's the amp.

Maybe your pickups are too low. It would explain why you are not getting enough sound... and a weak distortion.
