Jim's Comments: "We've taken our most popular pack and kicked it up to the next level! We've now got the correct gear that Eddie used in the studio and spent a TON of time making sure they sound as close as we could possibly get. These profiles capture Eddie's "Brown Sound" heard on the early Van Halen records, from Van Halen I up to 1984. The Kemper Phaser, Flanger and Tape Delay do an admirable job recreating the old analog effects used in Eddie's rig and are included in the profiles as appropriate for each album. Liquid profiles are also included. I'm extremely proud of this pack, and I think you'll love it."
Please Note: Obviously, the guitar is a very important part of the signal chain, and differences between guitars will affect the tone. We used one of Jim's Frankenstrats with a Fralin Pure PAF humbucker pickup as the reference to build the profiles. If your guitar has a fuller tone, we recommend increasing the Treble and/or Presence and seeing how that sounds. If your guitar is bright, try reducing the Treble and Presence and go from there.
