What you're all missing is the famous Ted Templeman reverb!

Acually, Angus most famous/first/best/favourite SG is NOT a (late) 60's SG it's a 70, 71 or even a 72 (norlin) Gibson SG standard.

Re: Lookin for Eddie's "Brown Sound"

It was great reading this thread. I still consider myself a newbie going on 3 years, (an old one but that's besides the point lol). I own several Marshalls and I thought maybe I was doing something wrong whenever I wanted to plug in and play something with balls (a heavy Zeppelin, AC/DC tune for instance): I would not like my tone with my JMP 2203 or JCM 800 2204 at moderate levels in the house with the pre-amp turned up (to get distortion) and master volume cut back in order not to be extremely loud. Instead, I would either cut the pre-amp way down and turn the master WAY up and say **** it I am gonna crank this bitch or, play through my non-master volume 1987 or 1959 LOUD as hell (police have come to talk to me on a couple of occasions). I typically rather play without an overdrive pedal, although I do own a few. Yeah I am a little crazy doing this, but what I realized, and have seen touched upon in this thread is that OVERDRIVEN POWER TUBES IMHO rule when it comes to great tone, and to do so = LOUD. So I may be a little crazy in the layperson's eyes (or ears), and slowly going deaf, but I LOVE what I am hearing. It's also a synergy - I find if I am pleased with my tone my playing is at its best.

Re: Lookin for Eddie's "Brown Sound"

[edit] [/edit]
well Ed's plexi was a 67 or maybe a late 67? i've played a 67 clone and a
68 clone and i think the 68 sounds more like Eddie's Plex.

not a fan of distortion pedals but as others mentioned The Wampler Pinnacle is great for early VH
you can actually play clean when it's on and it's very dynamic.


power distortion is mostly the phase inverter getting pushed. don't believe me?
try an amp with a post phase inverter master volume. i want to mod my master volume on my 89 2204 to a PPIMV.
if you want to brown out your tone i would ask a tech to lower your plate voltages.
that way your heater voltages are still in spec.

better yet... rather than trying to duplicate someone else's sound, explore and find one to call your own

Thumbs up Re: Lookin for Eddie's "Brown Sound"

What about the Ceriatone Plexi brown MKII 100watt?
Sounds pretty EVH
You can hear demos on Ceriatone's website

Here's one of them:
