well right now this is what im using:

ltd viper-400 with a crate 200w vtx 200s and its got good gain but when i crank it up all the way it gets a bit too muddy so im looking to clear up the sound but still have some good gain. im not looking for some super heavy distortion but i really like the GnR sound so im going for that.

any advice on a good pedal to help me out?
#2
how bout an eq?

a new amp could help a lot too

Whodicted

i dont have the money for a new amp, and thats a really nice amp IMO i was thinking somthing along the line of an overdrive maybe? if i turn down the gain on the amp and use the overdrive might get what im looking for, but it was just an idea, and i wanna hear what u guys think

isn't it a solid state amp?
overdrive don't work so great with transistors man
an EQ, Compressor, u should be able to get GNR tone from ur amp only...

DBX makes good EQ's, they aren't pedals, so I dont know if that what your looking for but here is a pretty good 31-Band EQ
