ok, so i just bought an ibanez ts9 tube screamer and a boss ml-2 metalcore pedal... 3 days ago

i plan on using the ts9 as a boost for my leads, but i noticed that the only way to get an actal boost is to tun off the ml-2, and the boost is extremely clean...way too clean for my solos and stuff, i need better overdrive, but i dont know how to get better distortion because i cant get the boost whiole the ts9 is on
does anyone know how to up the distortion on the ts9 so that the leads dont turn
out crappy?

i play through a line 6 spider III half stack, and i play alot of metal
should i get a totally different pedal? or do i need to tweak it out a little more?

***i plan on getting an all tube amp within the next year, but not any time soon

Tube screamers are a mids booster, they are made to push tubes into overdrive, its not very dirty. You should look for a dirtier OD pedal, like a ZW-44, or one of the Boss OD pedals.
