    Anyone know a good website that has the basics of how Eddie's tone has evolved over the course of his career? I know this has been beat to death, but I'm a senior citizen on this board with a short memory! I specifically want to know about his guitars, pickups, effects, and amps he's used. I can name most of the guitars and some of the other stuff, but not the where and when part of where they come into play, know what I mean? Thanks. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Two vital ingredients of the early "brown sound"... assloads of mids & reverb! "Scooped-mids" Metallica chunk EQ need not apply.

    Also, cranking it 'til your ears bleed through a good 4X12 cab loaded with Celestion V30's is a plus. His Sammy-present tone with the 5150s is more of a stereo, wet/dry setup with a shitload of chorus (most of the time).

    Yep, early sound = Dimed plexi superlead, and a cab with Greenbacks or G12H's would sound even better than V30's. He's been using the wet/dry setup since the early days. Thats how he got his echo, flanger, etc... after the distortion. You run the speaker out of the Marshall into a palmer load box or a similar unit that you can send the speaker signal straight through for the dry cab, and run the line out of the load box to the effects, then amplify the effected signal with a transparent power amp, and feed the wet cabs.

    I used to use a cab loaded with v 30's but found I was getting too much bottom at different venues, so I went back to old greenbacks.

    Same here, the V30 cab I have right now has way too much bottom for my Marshall and the mids are a little too "in your face" you know what I mean. I wish I could afford some real vintage green backs, but the 1960TV cab with green back reissues that I tried sounded worlds better than the V30's. The highs had a lot more sparkle but also a nice slice, the mids were a lot more mellow and more high mid punch, where the V30's were more low mid sounding to me(I think this is where the extra bottom comes from in my situation), and the lows were loose enough for the Marshall sound but not sloppy loose. The V30's, however, sound wonderful with my 5150!

    That sounds like it could be a good combination.

    I don't know about through the years but here is some good reading even if it's a crock of shit,
    meaning when Eds original amp was refurbished the guy who did it said it was bone stock when he started on it and bone stock when he finished it
    I believe him but others believe different .
