    Ive been singing this pedals praises from the rooftops for years now and im here again to declare this thing as just an absolute BEAST! And a direct 100% accurate clone of the real amps gain channel. Anyone who might be on the fence i implore you to just GET IT!!
    Ive revisited the VHD in my latest video, NOW WITH 100% LESS SCOOPED MIDS!!

    That tone sounds god-like.

    Ain't gonna scare this old metal head away with less mids ;-)

    Sounds great G-man!

    Haha thanks, i got some mid scoop flak from my 1st vhd video years ago but in my defense i was specifically going for that ultra scooped dying fetus tone but had always wanted to revisit the vhd. I just love this thing. Now im GASing for the blacked out version with silent soft footswitch on the site lol

    Great demo! Way too many mids though... Haha Your original video is what sold me on the VHD. I don't think I'll ever part with mine, such a cool, unique sound. Cut all those mids and just sludge away. /m/

    Sounds great with an HM2 in front as well.

    Play me some riffs off Winds of Creation and I’ll consider buying one. (Mids optional)

    I have one of these... when plugged into my ampeg SS150's power section it sounds just like the VH. If you plug it into a quality tube amp it destroys. Of course I only use the scooped mid setting :D

    The Eye of Horus or 9 Steps would do nicely.;)

    Actually, I was kinda kidding, but if you could play a few of those riffs...

    I can only imagine the damage I could do with that pedal into my 6505’s power amp.
