FF brought me to Treble bleed circuits in the first place. My strat was totally unusable without it in combination with a FF and vol down. Just mush. Now I'm in love with the mod. Also w/o the pedal it just suits my playing style and "tone in the head" so well. I know some ppl hate the mod, but I'm a believer. As of the FF, ironically a virtual FF pedal in amplitube made me buy my first FF. Before that I thought they were just too vintage sounding and too much of a one-trick-pony. Boy was I wrong!
