I've never heard or played the amp, but if it's sounding metalish try more mids and less bass and treble.

Yes, do what pawnluv said. Turn the mids all the way, if you have to.

My Palo is British voiced and made for the classic crunch, and I still have me mids on 8.

See if my settings do anything for your amp....

Treble: 7
Mids: 8.5/9
Bass: 6

It gave me a kinda punchy, really middy sound.
