i have a quick question, i have a crate gxl series amp, 65 watts. and the distortion tone leaves a bit to be desired, would it be worth it to buy a distortion pedal with high, low, and mid EQ controls to make up for it, so in basic terms, would it sound better? I dont have any specific pedals in mind quite yet, so suggestion would be helpful. i play mostly hard rock/metal.

P.S please do not respond whit "get a new amp", i am on a budget.

edit- my budget is about 130 dollars (saved up some change over the past few months)
and i do not want a new amp because thats at least a couple hundred dollars, my current amp is loud enough, and if i could fix the majority of distortion sound problems with a pedal it would be more cost efficient.
