does anyone know what kind of overdrive/distortion pedal eddie van halen uses in his guitar solos? or maybe a similar sound? I've noticed that its a popular sound for solos back in the 80s. Thanks in advance.
I don't think it was anything special. Just a really loud amp, a badass guitar player and a hell of a producer/studio.
pretty sure its just his amazing 5150 head. straight through but im not positive.
