    OK guys...I don't want any speeches on "it's in his fingers!" As I read these message boards I see many different levels of guitar playing Eddie which is awesome but I need some help from a few of you that I can tell know your stuff. 5150 amp, wolfgang, and MXR pedals will get you started at a taste of the old sound but I am past that. I am trying to fumble with the For unlawful, balance and greatest hits tone. I have plenty of rack gear, couple of cabs and a 5150 head. I've got the EBMM's and wolfies. My sound is pretty mushy-do you guys have suggestions? Whats the harmonizer for (just high quality chorus? detuned about 2 cents?)Why a cab simulator? How do I hook up two cabs in stereo with wet/dry mix? I know that was a lot of questions but I know somebody out there is a gearhead like me only striving for that balance tone! I love the tone on pleasure dome and CGTSNM. Any help would be great! Thanks guys

    Uh good questions...

    Well the harmonizer is an important part of eddie setup and yes is just a sort of hi quality chorus (i detune it at +6 and -6 cents)
    Here's eddie's basic setup:

    From head (it's got to be a 5150 to have f.u.c.k. sound, not marshall) one speaker output goes to one cabinet , while the other speaker output goes to speaker emulator.
    From the speaker emulator you obtain a line level output, (it emulates speaker's load so it won't damage the amp). From there the signal goes into harmonizer (it handles only line level signal - don't connect speaker output to anything that's not a cabinet!!!-)and from each output goes to a different power amp, from there to 2 speakers cabinet.

    So you have one cabinet with dry signal and two wet (with effects).
    I hope it was clear (my english is not so good, im from italy)
    If you want more feel free to email me!

    You can avoid mushy tone by not overloading on the distortion. On a 5150, run your pre-gain anywhere from 4-7 and run your post around 4-6. When I had my 5150 it didn't get into that "headroom" style of distortion until it was up around 5. . .really loud, but clear and not too buzzy. If you are using a speaker simulator, you can really crank your posts to smooth out the sound and keep your overall volume down with your power amps.
