I would like to play metal guitar, and am practicing, but I can't afford everything at a time. I have a crappy guitar and amp, but I was wondering, would I get more distortion out of a new amp, or a distortion pedal first?
More distortion from a pedal, but terrible tone. Go for an amp first

I made the mistake of pedal first with an ML-2, amp still sounded like shit, distorted shit but shit.
