Hey guys, here is my attempt at the Van Halen II tone. I started the clip off with Unchained... even though its on Fair Warning... LOL, then I do Light Up The Sky. I am using a second Variac on this clip. Let me know what you guys think: http://www.netmusicians.org/files/73-Variplex Track 2.mp3 To me, the Light Up The Sky clip sounds really close to the VH II album tone. I added Reverb and Delay in GarageBand. Here is the gear: Blankenship Variplex (6CA7s biased to 50ma) Mojave 4x12 loaded with Scumback M75s Mansel Mahogony Strat w/ Mojave 8.3 PAF clone More to come!
