I'm having an issue on a lot of amps where I can't get a nice tight distortion sound. I only play in my basement so I'm not playing super loud. It sounds like there is too much distortion or my signal is too hot. I'm not seeing red led's so I don't think my signal is too hot but that's how I describe. It doesn't get better if I turn the guitar volume down, or lower the distortion on whatever amp i'm using. It obviously makes it less gainy but it doesn't clean it up. There is still this extra distortion sound. Anything I can try or check?
