So, I got a problem.
My friend is a pretty decent guitarist.
He has a Les Paul through a tube amp (a relatively older tube amp. I don't know the exact brand), and I need help getting some good distortion out of it.
I have a boss Ds-1 Distortion.
The Head on the amp has a Volume, Treble, and Bass control.
Any help?

And by distortion I mean that equivalent to Metallica/Slayer/Megadeth.

Turn on the distortion/crunch channel on the amp. If it doesn't have one, you guys are kinda SOL. Leave all the knobs on the amp at noon except volume, use that as necessary.

On the DS-1 crank the volume all the way. Minimize distortion, only use it sparingly. Adjust the tone know as desired.
