    Anyone have any suggestions for Stoner/Doom settings? I love this pedal and would like to incorporate it into my overall sound.

    Try tone at 9- 10 O'clock sustain at noon, that should get you in the ball park.

    What about the the toggle? Me I like the dry setting but also think the boost sounds pretty neat.

    i didnt like the boost mode much at first but it can get you into "tuned muff" territory in my opinion.

    i just like the bass big muff more and more all the time. maybe i will buy another one and just have them at different settings... well ok, not gonna happen but you get the idea
     
  6. A fair amount of blend, but make your clean signal overdriven. Yummy.

    If it's truly stoner rock you don't ever remember your settings. They are whatever the knobs got bumped to when you took your stash out of the milk crate the Muff was sitting in at the time.

    My settings

    Volume 10:00
    Tone 1:00
    Sustain 3:00

    in Dry mode sometimes in Normal Mode

    but i run it in series with an Overdrive and A Boomstick Bottom Feeder...

    Od the Bottom Feeder the BBM

    so YMMV

    This one is easy:

    Get stoned, jam, twist knobs.

    Repeat as necessary until desired effect is achieved.

    and use a tube amp, of course

    I have found that my playing suffers significantly after I take a few cobble shots to the head, but hey, whatever works for ya
