It's all personal. I liked the w.
After listening to many clips on YouTube The Gibson PAF especially the Gibson 57 classic plus. The lower output pickup has the clarity and brightness/drive I hear on Van Halen 1 to me higher output pickups lose the clarity and are way less open. Van Halen 1 has that clarity and drive.
That's, why I like super dist.
I have a USA Wolfgang and from my experience, it doesn't make the "Ed" sound. I believe this is in the amp.
However, the pickup certainly helps and I'd say EVH Frankenstein pickup is your best bet:
Amp: Bray 4550
Bullrock Dimarzio Super Distortion is a high output pickup
Nope. I consider it mid.
I just gave you my thought from using the lbxi and all the pickups you mentioned before. I shall hand you over to Sapient. Good luck in your quest for da browns.
I have a Bareknuckles VH II (I know, it's not a VH I) in the bridge position of one of my Teles and it totally nails it.
Bray uses JB or ‘78 on his demo...His tone is very close to EVH VH1.
Bray uses the 78 I spoke to him sometime ago about that
You know I think tone chasing is fun. I do think that some of what we are chasing is production methods .
I always listen to the album but I just listened to a isolated track , obviously you can tell the rhythm is is recorded differently from the lead.
This RWTD the rhythm sounds like what many say a PAF but the plexi sounds wide open with lots of reverb maybe post production reverb.
The lead , not sure. It does sound like it is recorded further from the mic. With even more reverb.
It sounds good but quite good player ability also has a lot to do with this video. He captures the style of playing quite well.
yeah hes skilled.
Backs off readily for many great sounds.
Super Distortion in an alder super strat will get you really close. The other major component for me is a blackback G12H30 speaker (honestly, that's been my secret weapon in nailing that tone, regardless of the amps over the years - whatever I've tried, that speaker gets those "damn, that's the tone" comments every time, at least when paired with the guitar/pup I mentioned).
Shuddup and play that funky music!
yeah man.you I believe.
Haha! Good to hear from you, SB, hope things are going well.
Yes my bud. Same to you! Always a fav player and tone freak!
In many images shows hex key poles. Only two pickups known, both very close spec - +/- roughly 13.5Ω
The ES-335 theory is most likely true knowing Eddie's tweaking background, but people still looking for the P.A.F. screw/slug since forever.
I assume that only Ed knew what mag he used, so even if one knew it was a vintage humbucker, it was in need of repair after he tried tweaking. Seymour's Entry to the show. He most likely found out the mag. (& with an output of roughly 9Ω's, indicates the P.A.F.) Everyone knows what happened after, when Seymour release his EVH clone.... Ed was pissed.
Also it is fair to note that the first aftermarket pickup offered by Gibson was Larry DiMarzio's DP101 and slug version.
