After searching, reading (here) & listening (YT), it seems that some people like the VMT as always-on and the SFT as an OD for extra balls when needed. For predominantly vintage-vibes, that is. I *think* this is the combo I'm going to go with, but wanted to do a TB community gut-check before I bust the wallet out (these aren't cheap pedals!). Seems like some people prefer the SFT over the VMT, some would reverse them in the roles above, some would rather go with one of the following: Fairfield Circuitry Barbershop Bearfoot FX Blueberry Bass OD. Aguilar Tone Hammer Pedal Sansamp VT Sansamp BDDI Xotic Bass BB W & C Phat Phuk B Way Huge Pork Loin Keeley Sparkle Drive Rusty Box Fuzzrocious Rat Tail Fuzzrocious Dark Driving I'm mainly in to rock n roll, dirty blues, garage rock. I dig the classic motown tone, I dig the full, & warm tones of Kings of Leon, and I dig the big-but-vintage OD of BRMC. 5% of the time, I'll get a little more modern/aggressive/experimental, but I've got a Pharaoh on the way, which should take care of the really raucous stuff (right?). So, what are your thoughts & experiences?
