get a cheap marshall... my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps.

Every one of them crap.

TS, don't get a Tubescreamer because any attempt to "boost" solid state distortion usually results in crap. Likewise don't buy a piece of rubbish like the metal zone, look for a dedicated distortion to use on the clean channel as an alternative, maybe a Rocktron Zombie.

i wanna see a clip of a recto buying some groceries.

Maybe try a valve preamp pedal such as the H&K Tubeman or one of the damage control pedals. Personally iv never found a distorsion box that takes to SS amps particularly well.
