    VFE Killer Rabbit directly into Recabinet (No amp or ampsim)

    Trying to get that "High On Fire" brand of stoner metal. Think this pedal does that pretty well, with a little "Queens Of The Stone Age" thrown in for good measure.

    My plan now is to get a small tube amp (Carvin VT16 or an Orange Tiny Terror) something that has a decent clean-to-slightly-overdriven tone. I tried putting the pedal into my POD HD with a just-slightly-more-gain-than-clean patch using an AC15 and it really gave it a nice, lively, studio recorded kind of sound without the slight "overly present" sound that it has going direct into Recabinet.

    This is actually my first guitar pedal. I've had one bass pedal before this (and now I've got the B7K, which... Also amazing) but yeah, I couldn't be happier with this thing. I've tried dozens of guitar pedals in stores, gone through all the modeled pedals in the POD X3 and HD, and... Yeah. Nothing compares.
