Hi there UG,
I have a Kustom Quad100 DFX and well...the lead channel is kinda to mellow for me. I want it to have more gain but without a pedal, I'm selling my distortion pedal and other stuff. Is there any way I can mod the amp so there will be more gain? Theres a boost button on the control panel with a knob that makes the gain go up and down. Can I mod that? Make it clip a little more??

Almost impossible...a digital modelling amp requires putting new firmware on the chips...you'd have to code your mods.

Hmm, I didn't know it was a Digital modeling amp lol. The lead and clean channel run seperate. The lead channel has a "Boost" button. The effects are seperate I think too. I think only the effects are digital, hence DFX in the model name. Doesn't the dirty channel come from diodes or LED's? If this is a digital modeling amp then so is the Marshall MG with EFX :X

^The MG is too
I'd say the distortion is also digital. Hit Kustom up with an email and ask.
