When I blast my amp, I get a fairly muddy sound. Is there a way to get a sharper, clearer sound?

What amp do you have?

Without knowing any details at all, Id say you just need a bigger amp.

Could you give us specifics?

Bigger amp. Most amps are meant to decay at high volumes.

Just what I was going to say.

If it's a solid state amp then that's just what happens with them - people prefer tubes for a reason.

If you have a tube amp then it could be poor speakers or simply dodgy EQ'ing.

I have a solid state, Fender Frontman 25R. I love it for low-volume blues, but I am going to be getting a Marshall soon. Thanks everyone

yeah, your current amp is too small. just make sure to buy a GOOD marshall, not one of those half-tube / half solid-state deals... they will have the same problem with muddy tone at high volume.

You may also need to boost your mids a bit as you raise the volume. The ears hear frequencies a bit different at a higher volume.

Yeah. Raise your mids, lower bass and treble.

Yup, the muddiness is just an inherent quality of a not very good solid state amp.

As for that Marshall, if it's an MG or AVT then please don't - post in the Gear forum with your budget and requirements and you'll get some recommendations for GOOD amps.
