Very important question:

How much gain can you get out of the elements? I've had an itch for some serious metal lately with lots of palm-muting and I want to know if the elements will scratch it.

I don't think it's dimed.

In this setting, it sound similar to my PCfx Fuzzy Lady with the switch down... I'm impress with the versatility of the Elements.

Sorry for my lateness here gents!

Lee, the Elements gain is right at half in that Slayer video and in my high gain demo, although you add gain when you crank up the midrange for that Slayer tone. Turning up the gain knob past that doesn't change the sound much, just a bit more saturation and compression since it's already pretty much as distorted as it can get.

I did some sample settings too although I don't have an awesome video for them like Syl does:

Nice!!! Can't wait to try those... (I'm out of town and won't be home until saturday).
I really like my last setup... it's really fuzz like (see pic above ^ kind of muff like without the metallic sounding of a muff).

I'm sure this is a personal preference, but IMO, the vast majority of Elements settings sound better at 18v. There's kind of a pinched quality to the gain decay at 9v that (usually) didn't work all that well for me, especially at more traditionally br00tal settings.

Having said that, I think my favorite setting was gain up, asymmetrical clipping, bass up all the way, mids dialed to taste, treble at noon, mid-freq up. At 9v. Fucking ragged.

I only tried it at 9v.
Is there a way to get 18v with a PP2+ (I just got the PP2+)?

You need a voltage-doubling y-cable, but yes.
