Ok right so my setup (for exercises / basic practise) is simply my Ibanez RG370DX into a Boss DS-1 into a Behringer LX110.

When I flick on distortion its sounds a bit muddy and midi-y. Is there something i can do on the amp / stomp box / guitar to optimize the sound? Or is that just an amp thing and i should just go out and buy that Randall half stack that i want (finances permitted)

Isn't that a modeling amp, and a not very good one at that? Dude you could probably get a better sound if you plugged your guitar into a cats butt. Go get the Randall.

You're missing the forest for the trees.

Ask yourself if you really have to have a half-stack or should you be saving up for a more affordable smaller Randall.

If you like the Behringer then play it. It has tons of different sounds, but I wouldn't try and buy pedals to change the sound because no matter what you do it's still going to sound like a Behringer.
