    I have tried MANY different CAB IR files.
    I usually come back to Ownhammer as my favorites.
    Even though I own THOUSANDS I probably use less than 10.
    What are your favorites and how many do you actually use?

    Ownhammer GNR Basketweave for me. Best IR I've used by a country mile. I use it on Plexi, Brit800, Recto, BE and HBE models.
    I even have one Deluxe preset that uses it.

    I've also go the 112DVRB (Deluxe) and VC30 |(Top Boost) IRs, but I'm still not sure they are much better than the stock IRs.

    My favorite bought presets are the Celestion Suhr pack. I have the Ownhammer GNR but like the Celestion best.

    However, I recently discovered this IR that someone posted at TGP in a big free pack on a Headrush thread. It is called 57 3 and it is my favorite. Please give it a try and let me know what you think.

    I tried it quickly on a couple of high gain presets.
    For these presets it sounded a bit thin to my ears.
    Perhaps I'll like it better on some other presets.

    Dozens and dozens of free cabs mainly and a bunch of cabs I got as part of preset packs.
    Most of them have been never tried
    I only use one on all the presets I regularly use: Celestion RedBack 412.

    The two reasons why I don't try a lot of IR's is because
    - it is so time consuming to load them into the amplifire and try them on different presets
    - I like the redbacks

    York Audio has some great IRs. I use the Bogner and Marshall Blackjack packs.

    https://www.yorkaudio.co/

    For free IRs, it’s been a crapshoot. I’ve got some older ones from Celestion and Ownhammer that are decent. I actually REALLY like a couple that Leon Todd created and gives away on his site.

    I’ll give the PureCab referenced in another thread a try.
