at the moment i have a ibanez sz320 with stock pups ,a peavey bandit 112 and a digitech death metal pedal but it doesnt really count cause its garbage. Was wondering what my best bet is to getting a solid metal tone by adding pedals new pickups w/e, i know the amp is not great but it was a gift so im not gettting rid of it. Ive been saving up for a new laptop but im willing to put that towards new equipment so that i can finally get the sound im looking for.
thanks in advance

The amp being a gift ain't a good enough reason not to get rid of it if you can afford it.

No pedal you chuck in front of that will sound good.

^You really can. Whoever gave it to you won't be offended if you tell them why you've got rid of it, so long as you get a good price and the money goes to a better amp.

Then you're screwed.

Honestly, the Mircocube sounds better than a Bandit.
Heads will roll. Throats will be slit. Blood will flow like springs of water.

Get the laptop, and play into it using some kind of guitar software. That should do fine until you're able to get a decent amp.

depends on your taste, Epiphone valve Jnr, FenderBlues Jnr or a blackheart in the valve

Vox Valvetronix or a Roland cube 30x in the modeling amps.

I'm sure some other forum members, can suggest a few Amps that I might have left out.

I hope you find that perfect Amp
