Hey guys how's it going, first post hah.

A friend of my family hooked me up with a fender Princeton Chorus(125 watt) with a ART SGX T2 effects board, and an ART X-15 ultrafoot pedal system.
Not really messing with the effect board/pedals yet.

Anyways I know little to none about amps, effects, etc.

I know this amp is more for a clean guitar playing style, but it has the distortion/overdrive channel(gain,limiter, mid boost button, presense, volume).
What would be some ideal settings for Metal/hard/metalcore sound(Big fan of Parkway drive, megadeth, lamb of god, etc)?
This is what I have to work with, so if anyone could share some help that would be great.
Whether it be just the amp settings with/or without the pedals/effects too?

Thanks Guys

Treble - 10
Mids - 0 (that's right, ZERO!)
Bass - 10
Gain - set to taste

Pedals are made to change your sound, true, but some things just won't sound right. You can stick one of those buzzsaw pedals in front of it but it's not gonna sound like the 6505/Dual Rec/whatever in your head. It can sound pretty decent if set up right, but it wont sound... right.

Also, I hate you. I want a Priceton Reverb. I knw they're not even close to the same amp, but the name reminds me .

Yeah it's nice having a relative who is rich and big on music :]

I do appreciate the amp and realize it's not meant for it.
What would you guys try to get if you were in my situation?

I'm just a beginner and don't need the perfect metal tone you know, but at least something!
