well, try turning all the settings on the amp to zero, and then start out clean. If all your clean settings work fine and the trouble is in the distortion, see if any of your friends have a distortion pedal and ask them if you could just try it. This way if the pedal is the answer, you'll know to spend the money, rather than spend the money and have it not work. Personally i don't know anything about laney amps but do a bit of research on them and see if other people have the same problems.

i don't like laney amps. it is true the distortion does suck on them. so a gibsonsg650 said, look at a distortion pedal. but i'd just get a whole new amp

The Low-end Solid State Laneys have shitty distortion, but if we're talking about their Tube models, they're some of the best natural distortion you can get.

Conclusion: Look to get a new amplifier if you're unsatisfied with the one you have currently.

Hardly an unusual instrument for a guitar student. The RG350 prices somewhere between a good squire and a MIM strat.

Never every say a Laney amp sounds bad. They are the best amp (for distortion).. why do you think paul gilbert uses a: Laney GH100L.. with no effects.. just the distortion of the map in his recordings...

For distortion i find:
Gain 8
Treble 5
Middle 3
Presence 8
