Exactly. Hear this excerpt from "Runnin' from the devil" I personally recorded: http://pregnosplatter.altervista.org/Jcm800/Eldy 1959 nailed brown sound.mp3 (click on QUI if Altervista shows up) Very close uh? Well, there's nothing weird or odd I used. No NOS or exotic valves, no VariAC, no modded amp, no pedals.... nothing. Just: - Eldy with the bridge pickup - the SuperLead (which is stock and hass TungSol 12AX7 and JJ EL34 valves) with the following settings: Presence 9, Bass 0, Mid 9, Treble 9, Channel I volume 9 (Channel II disconnected/not used) - the Palmer and some reverb/echo in the DAW. I also touched the EQ a bit (500 Hz -1dB, 3kHz + 2 dB). Therefore, guys... don't believe the hype you read on the internet. You need no exotic valves or strange mods or those fu***in VariAC (that are dangerous!) to get Eddie's sound. Just practice hard. Then, get a Fly Deluxe or a bright sounding guitar with humbuckers (poplar or similar wood) and an old 1959 SuperLead or a new boutique clone, and CRANK IT. You'll get it, I promise. Ah yes, regarding the cab... if u want to use a cab, I'm afraid u need Pre-Rola G12Ms or clones (like Scumback), and I believe that he mixed them with JBL 120s. At least my pro audio engineers friends suspect that. But you'll get very close with just PreRola G12Ms (or clones), trust me.
