Ok, well im planning on getting a micro amp, that I can take with me WHEREVER. (must run on batteries).

No headphone amps!

I need one thats pretty versatile though, has good enough overdrive or distortion to play hardcore, and deathmetal. Enough to play SOAD stuff, and a decent clean sound aswell.

I played the micro cube at my local music store, and either I was doing something wrong, or the OD sucks? I couldnt really find an OD switch or knob, and pure gain doesnt sound all that great.

So, it would be great if I got some good recommendations.

You were doing something wrong, the micro-cube is your best(pretty much only) choice for a metal portable amp.

every micro amp sucks. they are only 4 being able 2 hear yourself play. if you want a versatile amp get a real one

well I already have a real one (I just havnt updated my signature).

I dont care for other people to hear me play, I just want a nice portable amp.

I like the portable marshall half/full stack microamps. they sell for like 50 or so bucks and they might have enough distortion for you, especially if you have active pickups. plus they have a belt clip!

Uhm i would say maybe the Micro Cube i own one and its great. But the little marshall amps are horrible. They sound great the first day but after a while the clean will sound distorted.

You were doing something wrong. Turn the rotary dial to "R-fier" and turn the gain up, start with the tone knob at middle and work from there. Preferably use a guitar with medium output humbuckers (I've heard actives don't work too well tho).

set it to the r-fier model. you were probably running it on the blackface model or something like that.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
