Is it just me, or is this straight up the most useless stock module there is? I seriously can't even get a halfway decent tone outta this thing! I've tried everything. I love the Disturbed tone but I can seem to even get close with it ;___;

Before we all started doing modded mods, the 1086 was one of the best. Strange what happens with time.

The 1087 is the only mod I liked enough to leave stock.

Meh, didnt really like it...I had 4 of them. When I compare to my other mods, its muddy. Also plays a bit stiff for my tastes. FWIW, my buddy got the Plexi Plus and all of the same issues are there- Exactly the same module with no enhancements...

yeah the 1086 is a tricky mod. You love or hate it. For me I hate it live in room just jamming and stuff, but recorded I really dig the tone. I have a 1087 that is 1086 on steroids. I end up using it on the lower gain so more like the 1086 but the voicing channel isn't as mudded out as 1086. EQ can fix all that s*&t in the mix. So yeah its just another mod that sounds roughly like all other mods to me.

Yes- I had one and stupidly sold it! (For cheap too) That was an entirely different tone.

Is it just because I was trying to use it for high gain stuff? Seems like people use is as more on just an overdrive that a balls out distortion.

To me, it doesnt have a ton of gain and does seem to break up quite a bit when you push the gain too high. On the topic of 1086's- I just got this module "CHEAP"!! I didnt even know if was modded when I bought it- Seller did not specify- Anyway, I got it and asked him if he had any details on who modded it (no answer) Thing is, this is the 5th 1086 I've had now- 3 stock and one JF modded...this one is different than any of them and sounds killer! I see several areas where this module was modded but there is no sticker or writing anywhere.... Anyone have any ideas as to who might have done it? Very clean work- And this thing sounds better than any of the previous versions (and did I say I got it stupid cheap?) Anyone??

So heard back from seller on the mod above...and he didnt know it was modded! Smile I was hoping that he might have some info. So back to square one in trying to figure out who did this awesome work.
