I got the Peavey JSX Mini Collosal today, and was rather disapointed... i thought you could get the metal sound of this amp by just cranking it, i was so wrong .

I will need a pedal now to get the metal sound i want. I was thinking about getting the boss MT 2 pedal.. but i dont really have a clue about what pedals are good...

The kind of music i play is for example steve vai joe satriani paul gilbert but i also play sonata arctica , megadeth, angra, van halen (or at least i attempt to play it)

What pedal would you guys recommend me
if you just got it today maybe you should think about returning it

Gibson Les Paul Standard
Fender American Strat
Taylor 214ce
Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier (about to be Voodoo Modded)
Keeley TS-808
Boss GT-10 Processor
Boss RC-20xl
why did you not test the amp more?

well, dont al valve amps sound clean without pedals? I mean i bought this amp , cause satriani promoted it (not only for that reason) so i thought i can get those sounds of his music out of it

I spent a lot of time looking for a valve amp that suited my specifactions, (low voltage, possibilty of getting high gain) this was the only one close...

i honestly dont know what to do, to return it , would be rather stupid, the shop where i bought it is like 1 hour and 20 minutes of drive of where i live , i rly dno what to do

i've done some searching, and i hardly come across something comparable with the peavey jsx mini collosal, i just wonder if i get for example a boss mt-2, or a ibanez tube screamer, could i get that metal sound like for example :

Yet, i also like this kind of tune :

I know that to get that exact tune i'd need to spend loads of money, i just wonder if i can get more or less close to it and still keep the volume low enough for bedroom use
