I love the crunchy rock sound like the kind that Bad Company has, but Ive never been able to come close to it. I assume my guitar and amp are the major reasons, I have an Epiphone EM-2 and a Line 6 Spider II 15 watt, but I don't see why I can't at least come close? Without buying a new guitar or an amp above maybe $400, is there any amps, pedals, or just EQ settings that I can use to come close?

Please don't post things like "everyone likes different sounds, just keep trying." I know everyones taste is different, but just a suggestion of what you like is better than nothing at all.

volume man...gain at 4 or 5 and crank that puppy. but seriously that amp doesn't move much air, definitely upgrade that first

all cheap tube amps, but totally depends on how much you want to spend

Try a marshall with crunch balance fairly high and mids past the treble. maybe a bit of reverb as well? Bass: 6 Mids: 9 Treble: 7 Crunch balance 8 Reverb: 2-4?

You can get a badass bugera tube combo amp for right around $400 and bugera's are pretty sweet amps

The JCA SAS linked to will blow the Bugera away in terms of crunch.
