Just try and sort your EQ out the best you can. Your amp isn't the best anyway, a pedal will not really make any difference.

I'd recommend an amp upgrade tbh.

Ugh...

Just get a Peavey Vypyr 15w 30w 75w or 60w tube.

But since you haven't listed your budget, you could probably get a Diezel Vh4.

Ok I'm going to jump on this before all the haters show up. Don't worry about buying a pedal, just keep saving your money for a new amp at some point in the future.

I'm assuming your MG is one of the four channel ones but correct me if I'm wrong. Try setting your amp on the OD 1 (or OD 2 if you need more gain) setting, gain around 1-2 o'clock, bass 1-2 o'clock, mids 12 o'clock, treble 2-3 o'clock, volume to taste, adjust from there. I find that's a good place to start with about any amp for me.

Like I said, don't worry about a pedal, any cheap ones won't really help and you're better off just saving for a new amp instead of shelling out for a more expensive one. Looking at your gear I'm assuming you're just starting out (again, correct me if I'm wrong) and people are going to hate on your amp but I think it's not a bad starter amp, that being said I'm not a fan of the newest ones.

My GF- What's the difference between Gibson and Epiphone?

GF- So Epiphone is like Gibson's slutty little sister?

Me- I love you.

With an MG you'd definitely be better with a nice distortion pedal. Better still buy a good amp, but if you can't then a nice pedal all the way.
