I agree, the 1086 and Recto are voiced differently but both are very useful.

Hey, im looking for a Peavy 5150 sound. Would the 1086 work? I still have yet to hear ultra xl clips.

I have a 1086 and I used to have a Peavey JSX (which I understand is similar to the 5150/XXX). Anyway, the 1086 isn't really that sound. It's good, and gets heavy, but it's not the same. I'm hoping the Ultra XL will be "that" sound, but have yet to hear it.

Hey, thats cool, i heard the 1086 is really good and i wanna hear some more sound clips and some sound clips of the ultra xl too. I was also thinking if i got the 1086, i would add the bbe sonic stomp to it to fatten it up and make it a lot more clearer, im thinking that might help to get the 5150 type sound, plus it has so much versatility.

Personally I think the 1086 is one of the most up front and clear (yet full) modules of the bunch.

I've never thought BBE ever sounded good on guitar. Cleans maybe, but dirt? No way! Even though I own one from back in the day (It's not worth enough to sell, and every once and a blue moon can come through), I've grown to hate the BBE sound. I like my mids in tact and my highs not messed with. The lo contour is like a muddy bass boost IME.

Might just be me, sometimes it works but most times not. Only if what's there is so muddy and I've got nothing to lose by trying it do I ever do so.

I absolutely LOVE the BBE Sonic Stomp in the loop of my RM50. Especially with the high-gain modules. YMMV.

Alot of people have the bbe sonic stomp, does that mean that the density and prescence knobs on the head itself doesnt do enough for it and the sonic stomp makes it sound much better. Cause i was planning on buying my head, 1086 and sonic stomp together but should i try out the head by itself first? and if i need the sonic stomp, do yall turn your presence and density knobs all the way down and just use the sonic stomp?

Good question. I wondered the same thing.

The Sonic Stomp and the density/presence work TOGETHER. I have my D/P set around 4:00-6:00 and the SS is set at 6:00 and 7:00.

The SS works wonders, but only if used in the efx loop. Don't waste your time running it into the front of the amp - no matter what the manual says.

I always thought that the trick to hitting James Hetfeild's tone in the Justice/Black Album era was in EMG 60 pickups. I have a couple of guitars loaded with EMG 60's and they always seem to get the best results

Has anybody done any of the mods to the 1086?
Not sure if it's worth it or not...
