Okay so i'm running with a marshall MG30DFX and basically my cable broke the other day (It stopped producing sound pretty much altogether, occasionally some static) and so I went a got a new cable.

NOW my amp is just a piece of shit. The clean drive is way too soft, i even put it on the reccomended settings from the amp booklet and the acoustics from the ****ing electric guitar are louder than the amp.

I throw it onto the distortion drive, and even with the gain MAXED out, the only strings it distorts are my bottom ones. It sounds like a piece of shit too, i don't know.

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THIS IS AN AMP PROBLEM OR A CABLE PROBLEM? ANY HELP WOULD BE LOVELY.

the cable has a lifetime warranty so i don't give a shit, the amp is on a warranty too so I just need to know what I have to do to fix this problem i NEEEED TO PLAAY IM SOO BOREEDDD HELLPPP.

Thanks for reading I suck at typing.

you can plug your cable into the amp and tap on the other end with your hand (or a block of wood if that adds comfort) and see if you can hear anything.

otherwise, what you are describing doesn't sound like a cable problem. use your warranties.

Your problem is that you're running an MG.

MG bashing aside...

Make sure the tone and volume knob on your guitar are turned up.

The lower the volume on your pickup is, the cleaner the output will be, generally.

is the pickup switch loose? and have you been twisting it? i had that problem, and it lowered the output when i switched pickups sometimes, giving me a cleaner sound.

All i know is when i put it in rythmn it plays clean as shit, if anyone has decent tone settings for distortion it would help, it seems like im getting decent distortion on the treble switch only on the bottom 3 strings and then everything past my D string is pretty clean.
