It's an ultra. i go simple comp block>drive block> top boost amp block>reverb block> Parametric EQ block out to a JBL k120 2X12 cab.
The comp block is just a simple pedal style comp turned on to stock settings, the drive is a midboost w/ the drive set to about 6 or 7. The amp block is a top boost w/ the bass low, mids up and treble up and the drive a little higher than stock. Reverb is large hall w/ about 3seconds on the time. PEQ is there to create a real focused grouping of frequencies. I don't always use it but i thought it would be handy in a band situation. I don't do the Weir stuff in my band.
I have a phase block above the drive and a flanger below the drive so the drive block doesn't interact w/ those two blocks.
I use hollow body guitars w/ this patch almost exclusively. I've got a knock off prs hollow body w/ 3 p90's that can all be on at the same time, that sounds particularly nice. The patch, to my ears, gives you a simple but convincing Weir tone.
