You could invest in a good, at least 7-band EQ, that would at least do a little.
I have no idea what I'm talking about. Don't belive me.

The only thing I can think of is to buy a simi-decent, but inexpensive, distortion. Like a Boss DS-1 or Digitech Grunge. Run the amp on the clean channel, turn the petal on; ALWAYS leave it on. When you want to play clean roll back the volume on your guitar; the little bit of overdrive left from the petal will make the tone almost okay, and under 'gain' it should be better than nothing.

A new amp is in order though; however, if you don't have the money right now and are looking for a stop-gap measure that ^ is it.

Pedal dude, not petal. Basically, don't waste (which is what spending your money on your practice amp would be) your money with buying effects, especially anything even vaguely resembling a multi-effect. Save your money and buy a nice small combo, there's a LOT out there you have to choose from.

To all of the guys who say you need an expensive tube amp: I play an Epi LP Special II through an Ibanez 10 watt solid state and it sounds amazing. I use a Mini Metal Muff and a Pocket POD, and use the amp as more of a speaker. I never use the overdrive on the amp, even though it sounds fine.

it's very easy to say that. But have you actually played on a really good amp? I mean you can say you've listened to lots of songs with guitars in them and such but it's not until you spend a good few minutes playing a real good amp in person that you hear what "amazing" tone actually is. I know loads of people who thought they had good tone until they tried out/bought a good amp.

im going to have to agree with eddie on this one. ive played my stupid friends ibanez and it sounds awful. even if you cant afford it go to the guitar shop and try something nice out. i think you will see for your self what good sound is.

he said petal, not pedal.

and to the TS, you could buy an EQ and distortion pedal, but in the end, a better amp is the best way to go.

Treble/High and Bass/Low on full, and middle off completley. Will get you a really thrashy tone with neck pickup, and a nice rock tone with your bridge pickup =D

Ah, doesn't it suck when I can't even spell something wrong to correct somebody?

No, it really won't give you a good 'thrashy' or 'rock' tone. You'll sound horrible and won't get any sort of projection at all.
