    Default EVH 5150 III Round 2 - Van Halen Riffage

    Hey guys,

    Here are some riffs I did on the EVH 5150 III. I used my Les Paul Standard for the Unchained and used the Frankie for Aint talkin bout love and You really got me.

    I think the amp was a little loud for the camera and sounds a bit overloaded...i'll have to experiment with lower volume to hear how it sounds on the video.

    I'm curious if anyone has tips on recording using a video camera...also for the tone...too much treble? More mids? Etc.

    Thanks and enjoy. I appreciate all feedback!

    One thing i did once was put a carboard in front of the camera's mic..it helped a lot . Maybe a bit less flanger as well.

    Thanks. I'll try that. With the flanger...I have it on the VH preset button which is what the settings are supposed to be but they are too loud in the mix.

    Should I put the flanger in the effects loop?

    the flanger could be amplified because of the camera's cheaper mic acutally. i use the MXR flanger as well..and i use it direct, but i reduce it in the mix, on it's natural preset, it seem TO present for me, but that,s a mather of taste realy

    Have to concur with the crappy mic theory on the camera. Hell, if you watch some of the videos of Ed playing Unchained on the last tour (yes, I realize he was overusing the flanger on some shows), it over amplifies the flanger's effect....something I did NOT notice at the actual show.

    Nice demo clip man! Actually, I just put up a demo of Unchained too on my band's myspace. I've got the EVH Flanger in the effects loop of a block letter 5150 head. It's fun for me to listen to the different EVH amps and compare!

    Hey, since you are close to me -- where did you go to get your 5150 III? The closest guitar center to me that carries them is Arlington Heights (very near Chicago).
