I'm pretty new to amps, my Marshall Amp only has three settings, Contour, Volume, and Gain. Today, however, I have a Crate MX10 and I can't for the life of me get any distortion out of it. I'm trying to play thrash metal right now like Anthrax and Megadeth and the only sounds I can get sound horrible.

It has these settings: Boost, Gain, Volume, Bass, Mid, and Treble. The only thing I can think of is turning the Bass all the way down.

Any help is well appreciated.
I get very tense around apples...Well, I get very tense generally. I think I've fallen into the trap of blaming fruit.

I'm in college, so buying anything, even picks, is a bit out of the question for me right now. Right now I have gain all the way up and boost a bit more than half way. I never had the gain on my Marshall more than about 3/4 of the way.

Try the gain and boost all the way up. Here is a link to the Crate site and your amps manual

Doing that gets me a really horrible tone and almost no crunch whatsoever. Right now I have Gain all the way and Boost at a 1/4. However, I have to use Bass and if I remember correctly, Bass is turned all the way down for thrash metal.

Bass is not turned all the way down for Thrash.

Thrash has just as much bass as treble.
