Well I got this amp and I think I might have not made the right choice. The only way I can get distortion is turning up the volume till it bursts my eardrums. Does anyone else have this amp? Does it have good distortion? Or is it mostly made for acustic. There is a great possibility that I'm just using it wrong. Thoughts and helpfull tips would be appriciated.

I dont know the amp, but if it's an acoustic amp you shouldnt be playing an electric guitar through it

Take it to a shop and ask them to show you what to do, thats what I had to do when I got my first guitar and amp, I didn't know what I was doing, so I asked for help.

are you stupid, you WANT an amp to have a muddy clean channel??? Dont even try to get distortion with only a clean channel and no pedals, cause its just not gonna happen on one of those.
