    I recently used Fractool to do an analysis of what cabs I am using and which ones I am not (mostly to free user slots) and it confirmed what I already knew, for the stock cabs I *really* like the humble, old school, 4x12 Cali (F065). IRL I never would have guessed this would be a fave (CL80s? Srsly?) but it really works for me for a lot of presets and styles. Anyone else have any stock IRs that seem to work for everything or acts as a starting/reference point for new presets?

    The Basketweave TV has always been a great cab.

    Mostly the 4x12 1960B V30 (RW) for clean and fuzz tones and the 4x12 FRACTAL GB M160 for overdriven amp tones. I've played a guitar riff into a looper and cycled through all the cab models and those were my choices. The 4x12 5153 cab models also sounded very nice, but not that different from the 4x12 FRACTAL GB M160, so I opted to only use my first two choices.

    I find myself using cab 158 more with 7.02. Combined it with Brit 800 and I may use it as my default combo

    Before I started using aftermarket IR's exclusively, this was my go-to:

    043 — 4x12 RECTO SM57 — Mesa Rectifier 4x12, Shure SM57, UltraRes (Cab Pack 5/14).

    Had to look that one up:
    Interesting... I have most of the TAF stuff. Mine is a MkII so I think I don't have that cab as a factory cab but may have it available as one to load.

    I find myself into G12H speakers right now (Greenbacks used to be my exclusive goto) so that new cab 57 from Q7 has been a major winner for me in addition to that 4x12 Cali I mentioned earlier:

    This right here, it just always works. For cleans the TX star factory cab is great too, nice and mellow

    I think that one is among the "extra" IRs in the firmware bundle.

    I'll have to check that one out. I've been using the Orange cab from CabIR.eu which is a G12H30 - really great sounding to me.

    I'd recommend the F019 for cleans to crunchs

    Haven't really used the stock cabs...
    Since I am using a real Zilla fatboy cab, I am also using a Zilla fatboy IR.
    Just seems to make sense.
    Though, I should capture my own IR of my own particular cab... That would be cool.

    The SLM V30 that went away a long time ago. I did a tonematch of it and still use it as a starting point for most crunchy tones.

    It sounds great for many things and the low end seems more balanced for my taste.
    With the latest FW updates finding a great ir or amp has gotten much easier! :)

    Omg this thread is just what I needed!!

    Been at rehearsal all week for a tour and last rehearsal day we went in-ear so I tried AX8 stereo to the board just for fun.
    Much better string separation than the miced amp we would have to deal with there (Fender deville 4x10).

    So today I'm re-doing my "pedalboard-patches", but slapping a cab block in there (there was already an amp in there so CPU wasnt much of a problem), though I can't decide which one.

    Oh and hey if anybody wants the patches just shout. :)

    My go-to cab is still the old 4x12 Cali from the AxeFx Gen 1 firmware, that was later removed in ~2010. But it was available on the internet for free download so I converted it to Ultrares format and use it up to today.

    EDIT: Here's what I got so far, pedalboard with 2 clean amps and 2 delays mix tied to EXP

    EDIT2: Pride

    F119 is the best starting point for transparent crunch or edge-of-breakup tones for me.

    I like 126/130/174 (All 4 x 12). Those are my GoTo's.

    126 and 130 are tonally very similar. I use some Marshall cabs here and there as well, but I find the recto cabs work better with the Marshall amps...for me. YMMV
