My friend just gave me a VHII the other day, told me that he wants me to test drive it for a few months.
I'm wondering, how good is it at getting nice, saturated, heavy sounds? Not like old school 80's high-gain, which I also love, but something more modern?

If you have the amp for a "nice, saturated, heavy sound" I think it will work.

Then that's perfect, cuz my amp is a XXX combo.
I currently have a Dimarzio FRED in the bridge of my Les Paul, and I'd be putting that in the neck, and then putting the VHII in the bridge, so I just wanted to know how it would sound for heavy rhythms.

My guess is that it will sound better than the Fred for heavy rythms.

Yeah, the FRED can be kinda honky in the midrange, the VHII should be a lot more balanced and less compressed.
Actually called Mark!

I don't think I really have a problem with honkiness, at least not with driven tones. It gets sort of quacky when playing a straight clean tone, but this goes away when I push the clean channel with my OD. Which is actually really interesting because my clean tone has FAR fewer mids than my rhythm tones, for which I crank the shit out of the mids.

It would be nice to be a little less compressed though, just a little more air to the sound.
What do you mean by more balanced though?
