Hi, I have been playing the guitar for a few years now. I have been using a Fender Mustang ll, which I like, but am ready for an upgrade. So I bought a Hot Rod Deluxe lV today. I am not sure that I like it. I like to play alot of heavy metal type music, and even with the drive on max, It sound more like a rock sound. Do I need a distortion pedal with this amp? Also I noticed on the clean channel, which sounds amazing, after 2 on the volume knob, it starts to sound distorted. If I turn it past 3, I feel like the speaker is going to blow. Is this normal? Seems like way to much power for this speaker.
Thanks for any info.

Yes take it back.

Next time don't buy an amp without trying it first to see if it suits your needs.

So you make a trip.
Buying online, sight unseen, sound unheard ... not the best idea.
