Okay i just bought a Metal Muff Distortion Pedal with Top Boost. Before buying it, i tried it out at guitar center with several amps and it sounded crazy beast. When i took it home, i plugged it into my Epiphone LP and my Line 6 Spider IV and it sounded like insane crap. I used every channel and it sounded like crap on each. Is it the amp? because Line 6 amps are digital and i don't know. Should i get a tube amp with a good clean? i don't know what to do, Please HELP!

Yes to both questions. What's your budget and genres?

Budget would be about $300 and what i'm really looking for is a Metallica sound

Buying an amp to go with a pedal instead of a pedal to go with an amp?

There aren't many $300 tube amps that can handle metal. You could get a blackstar ht1 or ht5 (tube) or possibly a peavey Vypyr or Roland cube ( both ss modelers).For now, I'd suggest a cube: it's fairly cheap, has a good clean sound, and works well with pedals.

^Be nice, Cath.
