I've got a Ashdown Fallen Angel and its got a boost channel, which doesnt seem to work. so the distortion is a bit pathetic at the moment.

Im using an Line 6 uber metal pedal, which is normally OTT but it just doesnt seem to give out enough gain on this amp. Any ideas on how i can get a higher gain sound without spending a fortune or know what the problem is?

Thanks in advance.

You do know that the boost isn't a separate channel right? It's just a gain boost for the distortion channel alone...

Anyway, I recommend a decent OD pedal or graphic EQ to boost the input.

Dead preamp tube sounds like a possibility.

Otherwise, take it to a shop.

if it isnt the preamp tube i'd recommend that you put a signal boosting pedal, designed for a tube amp, in front of it. i bought a tube screamer and i couldnt be happier. the uber metal is a digital pedal if i remember correctly and therefore using it with a tube amp will kill your tone, in my opinion. hope i helped.
