How much did Van Halen have to do with the design of this amp, anyway?

I have been looking for interviews, etc, but can't find any.

Basically, he told Peavey to make a SLO copy for alot cheaper and change it a little bit, AFAIK.

I believe that the EVH 5150 III, though I could be wrong.

I think the Peavey 5150 was Eddie getting drunk and asking peavey for a lot of gain.

The fact that Eddie worked on the design of the amp is a major selling point for me, but the more I think about it he probably didn't work THAT much with Peavey on the tone.

It looks like I'm going Engl Fireball!

^It's not to say it isn't a good amp, I just don't feel it's right for old school van halen tone if that's what you're going for. If you like the amp you like it, who gives a flip who designed it?

His old tone (prior to peavey) was a Plexi. Here are his exact settings:

Volume 10
Bass 10
Middle 10
Treble 10

How is that for a great ear

In the guitar wankery genre, Hendrix is the king, Eddie is second. Care to argue that?

Eddie can play like its unbelievable but I never liked his tone too much. Although the 5150 is one of the greatest high gain amps ever made.

I don't care to argue that at all. Both are amazing guitarists, but IMHO both had mediocre tone at best.

I think Eddie has great tone, it's personally one of my favorites. Now Jimi on the other hand not so much...

Eddie has a great tone, but the 5150 does not have his tone. I played one expecting to be able to get some classic van halen tones but nope, just sounded like high gain metal chicken S***
