So I play an Ibanez S470 through a Roland cube 60. And well that's all my gear. I want a heavier sound, but not all fuzzy, clear and thicker then it is a the moment. Any recommendations? I don't have much money to spend but am just looking really.

get a metal distortion and a noise supresion to get rid of the fuzz

an eq pedal to beef up your tone a bit might help

^Won't help much. Mids are really about tone more than clarity. They don't beef up your sound much on their own.

Not really. Noise suppressors won't help with the fuzz and if he can't get a beefy metal tone out of his amp a pedal won't help.

Exactly what he doesn't want. Fizzy, muddy tone that's got a bass response that's woofy instead of beefy.

I agree with those who said EQ Pedal; the MXR 10-band comes highly reccomended.

Clean boost pedal? Maybe a noise gate pedal? Not sure how this will work with the cube.

A chorus can thicken up your sound. I recently picked up a Visual Sounds H2O to replace my DOD FX65 chorus. It sounds pretty good.

an EQ pedal would be great for that.
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.

It's more of an effect than a tonal booster though; even at lower settings a I find a chorus can mush out your chugging metal rhythms or whatever.

Compressor pedal?

If all you had to go on was the forum you'd think a Decimator could cure noise caused by dodgey stage lighting and restock the ocean's population of sperm whales

Eq pedal would be the best bet...

Also a trick I use from time to time is you can setup a delay pedal with a little a hair bit of delay and you can get a good doubling effect to will fattin it up a bit as well.

EQ pedal wins. Flawless victory.

If I'm trying to "strengthen my sound a bit" I run a compressor into an EQ.
