  • VFE Pedals -- holy carp! :o

    Just got my Pale Horse od in the mail today... Now, I've only had about a half an hour to check it out, but so far the potential has me pretty stoked. At this point, all I will say is this: this is the first or pedal I've ever plugged into that has me *seriously* considering running my amps clean and using a pedal for my primary gain source.

    I just a/b'd running into my Maz dialed in for clean against the Maz alone dialed for crunch, and I swear the tone was all but identical either way. If I hadn't just heard it, I wouldn't have thought it possible.

    We'll see how it goes with more extensive playing, but first impression is that this is one helluva pedal. Major kudos to Peter at VFE.

    P.S. The customer service has been superb, as well, fwiw.

    That's great to hear, Drae.

    Peter is finishing up my order and will be shipping by the end of the week.
    Can't wait to try his pedals.

          Not James Peters... Peter is this guy's first name:

          www.vfepedals.com

          I had already gotten the Blueprint delay, which is digital, but with all the controls can be dialed in to sound fairly similar to my Carbon Copy, but man, the Pale Horse really just blew me away on first playing it.

          Hope it'll still be that amazing by the time I get to plug back in tonight...

                Nice!
                Glad to see you're as happy with VFE as I am.

                I think I'm gonna snag a Rocket EQ to use as a solo boost, add some level and put a bump in the mids and I think it'll be killer for that.

                  Been thinking about the boost thing ... If I do end up using the Pale Horse for my gain, I'd need some kind of boost or something for my quasi-pseudo-metal tones. Since I've never run a clean-amp rig, I'm not sure whether I should boost the Pale Horse, use a separate high-gain pedal, or what...

                  Either way, LARGE thanx to you, K-Bizz, for turning me on to this company. I can't wait to get the tremolo that's on order (but I'll have to, for about a month... )

                        It's uncharted territory for me, but if I can get "my tone" that way, it sure would be a more practical setup... At the very least, it's cool to see how the "other half" lives.

                          I swear, dialing back the level knob & turning up the mix control makes it sound damn near analog (using my Carbon Copy as a reference).

                            seriously great service.

                            I asked him if he could mod my fiery red horse muff from triangle specs to civil war specs. He said it would be easier to build a new one. so, guess what. He's building me a custom Civil War Muff, and just trading it for the Fiery Red horse. Dude is a class act.

                            BTW, the Fiery Red Horse sounded great, but I just prefer Russian flavoured muffs.

                              Oh my GAWD, I love this pedal!!!

                              Just gave it another run... this thing is so amp-like -- it really doesn't feel like I've got a pedal in between the guitar and amp. Tried boosting the Pale Horse with my Keeley SD-1 -- convincing faux-metal tones.

                              Still stoked...
