    hi, has anyone tried the Tech 21 Trademark 60 ? I was told that it has a "VH setting". I'm looking for opinions on this amp 'cause i might be interested in buying one. THANKS !!

    I haven't tried that particular amp, but I've found that the best way to approach Ed's sound is just pure volume. Take that Marshall or 5150, and just turn it up, then back some of that "dirt" off and there you go.

    I think a lot of his moderen sound comes from that Harmonizer thing he uses. I am sure Tribb or Jape can tell you more about that.

    Van Heflin:

    Good luck on the search for Edward's sound. I haven't tried the Tech 21 amp, but I have tried the AX2 212 by Line 6. You can shape the sound to mimic some of Edward's stuff, but to get anything close to EVH you will have to master the string muting (both right and left hand). He uses this technique to keep things from getting away from him.

    The Line 6 amps offer more versatility. The 5150 Amps are his baby, and are almost identical to his stage amps. You might also try a Marshall/Power brake combination.
