...for a tighter, more Metallica sounding distortion on my VK112? Besides a new amp.

Don't get me wrong, I really like this amp. Cleans are great, and it does rock and crunch with ease. I bought it expecting it not to be able to do Metallica.

What do I need to make it? An EQ, Distortion Pedal?

Any suggestions would be welcome, so long as they're not ridiculously expensive, as I'm on a budget. <£70 ($140 approx.) please!

Thanks for any help UG can offer.

A Radial ToneBone Hot British distortion, which i think is what Hammet used. I think itll help a bit to get a Metallica sound. Also be sure to get some sort of Tube amp. Thatll help loads.

VK is a tube amp.
VK = Peavey Valveking

Thanks a lot for the Tone Bone idea though.

Any other takers?

Tighter sound = more control over frequencies = EQ pedal
