I have a ZAR E20R amp and I pump my gain to max but still feel like i get no distortion at all, is there something I can do in EQ to boost it or am I just doomed and need to get a pedal?enter image description here

  • Did you push in the "On" button on the Overdrive channel? – emran Sep 21 '19 at 22:47
  • Yeh, I pushed the on button haha. I also know some amps require higher volume for better distortion, tried that too, but changed nothing. – paskoo Sep 21 '19 at 23:52
  • Can you post a photo of the actual settings that aren’t working? Have you tried putting treble, bass, and middle on 10? – Todd Wilcox Sep 22 '19 at 0:09
  • @paskoo did this amp come with a foot switch? Some amps could only switch channels with the foot switch. It's a stretch but figured I would ask anyway. – emran Sep 22 '19 at 1:45
