So I just got this amp i've been playing to for a while and it sounds awesome! every channel was working perfectly fine until one day, i put it on the crunch pre set and it didn't give me any distortion. I tries the factory reset and volume boost and i WOULD get distortion but it sounded so ugly that i stopped playing, any ideas on how to fix? would buying a distortion pedal help to get the distortion sound i want?

You may need to turn the boost back on. Read the part of the manual I have attached and see if anything there makes sense. Also I use Distortion Pedals sometimes. I've built 2 Tube Stomp boxes made by modkitsdiy, they turned out great.

I mostly play at home and my own music which is more of a bluesy Jazzy Rock mixture as I'm still learning how to play guitar so when I post a reply to try and help give ideas you know where I'm coming from. In a nutshell I'm always learning and having fun doing it. Rock-On!! Oh, and if I don't respond promptly I'm probably playing guitar or my computer locked up from multitasking 'cause I'm using Gear Box, HD500 Edit, Audacity and tab filled browsers all at the same time, Hahahaaaa. Surprisingly enough my 'puter handles the load more times than not.

I would return it if it doesn't sound right.
