    Default Eddies next endorsement.. MODELLER

    If Eddie really wanted to rake it in in a commercial endorsement he should consider doing working with Line 6 or similar company with digital modelling.I know the tube snobs will flame me, but the technology is now at the point where unless you are half -bat the sounds are indecipherably different from real amps.Can you imagine if he let Line Six model his original 68 plexi super lead and his favorite 5150? His deal is done with Peavey anyway,and Im sure there was no clause in his contract back in 1994 that he couldnt digitally model his own amp.The overhead on these items is way below building all these amps (not to mention shipping them, material waste, store space).He doesnt have to lift a finger, the modelling process would be about a week,and then he sits back and rakes in his cut.The "Edward Van Halen Signature Model" for Line 6 would sell HUGE. Everyones been trying to copy it anyway,he might as well profit from it.

    pfloyd is speculating that Eddie should use a Modeller to make some cash etc...
    My opinion is that Eddie uses and/or makes his own stuff so to speak. But pfloyd does have a point for us geetar players that are trying to get the Eddie tone etc.....
    Just go for it!

    I don't know if Ed would go for it.

    One of the top three reasons it took so long to get anything new from Van Halen was because Ed upgraded 5150 with the latest studio gear... and then spent about a year and a half to make it sound like the Analog gear he just replaced.

    Factor in that Ed's own tone has changed three times since 1978 and I think you'd just confuse him. Besides, if he needed the money he'd be putting out music.

    Very well put, I agree...but, what if we fans could just have something allow us get his tone a little easier.
    Just go for it!

    I thought this was a done deal, so I got a little curious as us womens are prone to be. I thought it was actually a new development for Edward.

    Oh well.

    Gonna put this in the Guitar Room. It should get some good convo in there.

    Not necessarily when you consider they lost money on VH 3 and I doubt made much on Best of both worlds.I can speak from experience that you really have to move a lot of units (a band like VH would have to sell 800 000 + to start making profits because the promo costs are so high) to just break even these days, factor in downloading, and your only real chance for profits are in tour merch. Van Halen type music is not really commercially viable like it used to be,and thats why he went into endorsements in the first place.He probably made more from the EBMM, Peavey Wolfgang,And 5150 1 and 2, in the 90s than he did from new VH product in the 90's. On the modelling choice, all he needs to do is really one amp ,for all I care, the Marshall 68 super lead that was on VH1 and 2. He could do all of them.No confusion here.

    If that was his intention, he failed miserably, those 3 songs are VERY digital sounding.

    I just saw from the other post about Eddies 2004 pedalboard that he is (was) already using a line 6 product that is not commercially available.maybe this is a sign of things to come.It will be a major step backward if he goes with Crate and makes big ol expensive amps.
