I have a DXMG Dinky and a Vox Valvetronix XL 30W. I want more distortion so I can have heavier distortion for squeelies and such. Not looking for something that will make my guitar sound like gravel but good metal tone. Any suggestions? I don't want to have to buy a higher end amp at the moment because of money so preferablly pedals that would help. Thanks.

Well I like the amp. It has good sound. I just want to make the pinch harmonics squeel more. Any suggestions on making the distortion as heavy as possible on that amp? Like any setting suggestions?

The one I've tried had plenty of gain for "squeelies" as you call them. Are you sure it isn't your technique?

Pinch Harmonics is all about technique and Thicker strings also helps.

I believe its not my technique. On my friends Peavey I can make them squeel just fine. I'm not quite sure what the problem is. Does the power output have any effect on the tone?

I can never get pinch harmonics to work well on those amps. I don't know why. They just kind of sound terrible and die quickly.

Yeah thats one of my problems. I can get longer and better sounding ones on different amps.

EQ dude, try to kick up the treble. Changing your pickups might also help. Try brighter pickups, or ones with more output. Hope that helps.

Use an OD as boost. Make's my AD30VT's UK 80's Channel scream.

Thanks for all the help. My DXMG Dinky has EMG Hz Passive Pick ups. I heard EMG 85s are good. Any suggestions?

I don't think it's really worth changing the pickups on a modelling amp.
Boost the treble and mids a bit. Part of it might be technique too.
