The problem is entirely in your choice of amps. A small amp like that cannot handle the heavy load of high gain pickups and distortion. It will run out of head room. There is more to the power rating of an amp than just how loud it gets. It takes more power in an amp for gain and distortion than most beginners realize.

If you are going to play through any mini amp, resign yourself to playing clean. If you want gain and distortion, use something other than a mini amp.
