Hey, guys!
Recently I rediscovered my Zoom G2.1u from like 2005 because it's much easier recording that way (as opposed to VSTs with latency) and it djents! I've got a great "Milton Cleans" (Fellsilent, Monu, Tesseract, Hacktivist etc) tone and some very usable rhythm tones using the Dual Rec model with the stock cab and the 5150 with IRs:

This is using an Epiphone SG-400 and a Squier Telecaster (feels good to be broke lol)

Has anyone else got cool results with cheaper or less obvious gear?

New strings. No amp, no cables. It djents. Try it. ;P

Haha I agree, especially when you've just put them on and they're stupid low.

Using an Aguilar Agro bass overdrive as a boost in front of a high gain amp instead of an 808 type drive. Little more twangy than djenty, due to the weird midrange response meant more for bass, but definitely an interestingly tight and aggressive tone.

I've always wished there was an overdrive pedal where you could adjust the mid boost frequency, kinda like that boost on the G2.1u - you can choose between 5 bands to boost which can be very cool, but I've recently found that using a real OD in front of it really brings it to life, doesn't sound digital at all (not to mention the OD only cost me like £20!).
