Watched on YouTube a recent interview by Fluff of riffs and beards with Mike Soldano and he was basically talking about the three SLO’s he sold to Eddie Van Halen which was interesting. But the thing that was most interesting was him saying about Eddie getting him to take away ‘the amp ‘to retube . To Soldano’s surprise it was bone stock and how even after the retube it sounded nothing like ‘Eddie’ just a good stock supelead . Remembering Eddie telling him about the variac Soldano experimented by gradually turning the voltage down to 88volts and bam there it was , instant Eddie and considerably lower volume , according to Soldanos estimates the amp was running at 20-30 watts . This has got me thinking , 1987x with a variac or even studio vintage with variac ???????
