Hey guys, i recently purchased a SX SST62K guitar pack.
it came with a small, 10 wat SX GA-1065.
it has a volume, high, mid , low & drive controls.
can anyone tell me how to set the amp to play good hard rock/metal please?
Volume: 0-10
High -10 - 10
mid -10 - 10
low -10 - 10
drive on/off
please tell me what to set it to.
Thanks

Well, from my experience different amps can sound different in different places. Try this (this is what I first did when I first got my guitar 2 years ago). Put the volume at a level you are happy with, now put the drive up and turn every dial (apart from vol) up to the max. If that isn't what you want just eexperiment and you should find something you like.

chances are u wont get metal out of it. u might want to look into getting a cheap distortion pedal. as for hard rock. i would try these:

drive on
high 7
mid 6
low 5-6

or

drive on
high 6
mid 2
low 9

when playing metal, the "heaviest" sounds have low mids, medium highs, and high lows. so when u get a distortion pedal, keep drive off, and use the second settings.

Are you prepared to spend any more money?

I would consider myself a kinda intermediate player (kinda) and I really like the Boss ME-50. That has a Metal option on the distortion pedal.....
