I have a Randall RG150 (pre-Washburn ), but it won't get into high-gain territory. I like to use it because it's got a really unique tone and a great bluesy distortion that I tend to actually prefer over most of my tube amps. The only thing it could use is tightening up (but I'm getting a MXR 10-band for that), and that the distortion basically won't push past a classic rock or classic metal tone, so any metal that I try to play ends up sounding Maiden-ish. I can take the gain to around 2 o'clock but it just ends up turning into a muddy mess after that.

So what can I do? Could I get away with putting a TS in front of it, even though it's SS? If not, what distortion pedals would you recommend? or would anybody want to trade for a vh140c?

...Bro, what metal are you playing that it can't handle? Randall RGs are some of the highest gain amps in existence.

Try turning it up.

I've always found it kinda lacking, but it really showed today when I tried some In Flames. And supposedly they do have lots of gain, maybe it's just the "alpha hybrid" RG150H's? Or maybe my amp is fucked up?

I can't really turn it up, I play in my bedroom and it's a 150w amp :/ But the few times I have, the OD seems weaker?
