Metallica's "Sad but True".

My amp will be a vox ad50vt and I doubt that it has enough distortion in the built in channels. I'm a total noob about contemporary distortion pedals. Advice appreciated in advance...

I've had really good luck with setting my amp (same as yours) to a crunch (my personal choice, gain at 1:00 on the UK 80s setting) and then going the rest of the way with my Wylde Overdrive.

By high-gain I don't mean stupid stuff. I just mean styles like Motley Crue or Iron Maiden
