I really want to know how to get a good van halen brown sound, I have a valveking halfstack and wanted to know if anybody knows some good settings. I would also like to know what EVH uses for echo. Thanks.

Boost your midrange.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

I do that with treble and lower the base, but I'm still not getting a good tone I have a guitar with a bolt on neck and hot pickups.

I was with Steve Vai saturday during his alien guitar secrets gig and he said Eddy came by one day and played thru his rig and it sounded like Eddy, it´s in the fingers, you could´nt get his sound even if you played thru his gear, sorry to say.

Excuse me?

The 5150 is your best shot of getting a sick EVH sound, but you'll have to accept the fact you'll never get that perfect tone.

try these.

my current vk settings when using the Jem and a satchurator, big bad wah, lil aligator volume pedal, digitech whammy, and micro pog.

clean channel- b=8,m=5, t=8 boost off
channel 2- is same as the clean, vol boost i leave switchable, gain boost off(thats for the satchurator), gain 4

in the loop vox time machine
general reverb 7 and res 10 pres 8.

and ive gotta agree with sstony alot of of tone occurs before you get any where near the amp (fingers, pick, pups, strings, guitar materials, cables, fx then your amp and then how your speakers are voiced).

the vk speakers are very dark in their voicing btw.

Do you think the fact he is using a line6 412 cab could be more of an issue?

I've heard the speakers in those are pretty poor quality and create a muddy tone?

i didn`t look at his sig and spot the line s**tzz 412, he said in the post vk halfstack so i assumed it was a vk half stack head and cab.

i`ve never used line s**tzz cabs so wouldn`t know about their speaker voicing.
