ok if the EVH gear is supposed sound like Eddie's gear, so if you theroicly got like $7,000 and you got like all the EVH gear like the Wolfgang Guitar, the Half Stack, the Phase 90, the Flanger, the Dunlop Wah, maybe the humbuckers, wouldnt that sound exactly like Van Halen? haha

You're not truly playing guitar unless you know theory.

At least 40-50% of the tone is in his fingers.
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"

There's a difference between sounding like Eddie, and getting Eddie's tone.


Exactly!

Also using that gear would give you his modern tone!

Did he say his tone was the same? I don't think so.

If you want the brown sound, get a super lead and crank that fuker. If you want his modern tone and the ability to do the brown sound get an SLO or a 5150 III

your playing effects your tone more than you think, I can get my crate amp to sound similar to Eddie if i wanted too, its almost all in the fingers when i play van halen songs they my amp sounds pretty damn close to eddie but with the same settings i'll play something else and i get a whole different tone than what i thought i had

I didn't say your playing doesn't affect tone. Also, sounding like someone and having the same tone aren't the same things.

If I wanted the same setup as VH (pretty much what you're asking) I'd skip getting any of the 5150/6505 line, and head straight for a Metro 12,000 series. http://plexireplicas.com/metropoulos-amplifiers/12000-series/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zX510aR92vM&feature=related

Let me try to put this argument to rest once and for all:

At the CMT Awards, I played Keith Urban's R4 through his rack and Hiwatt/ WEM cabinet. In fact I played "You Look Good In My Shirt" through said rig while trying to capture the nuances of the recording. Does anyone want to take a guess what that sounded like?


(Hint: it sounded like Keith Urban)

Expression and phrasing is in the fingers; tone is in the amp.
