    Van Halen tones

    Post by GT62 on Mon Feb 12, 2018 6:27 am

    Hi guys, has anyone got any settings for the classic ‘brown sound’ from early VH albums please. Only had my GM40 for a week but blown away by the sounds already!!

    Lead channel, boost on, gain at 9 o'clock/10 o'clock resonance low, mids high, the rest to taste.

    Tbh on the lead channel with the boost on it is hard not to get a VH style tone if you're playing with humbuckers. I love that channel.
