    Default EVH Gear page video treat :)

    I was browsing the EVH Gear site before work today . Under the 'News' section there is a REALLY cool video I came across !!!

    One of my favorite EVH tribute guitarists , Al Estrada , does some insane riffing on an EVH Striped Circles guitar . He does some cool ad libs w/harmonics , then launches into the intro of Fools ... The bluesy stuff that morphs into the madman picking runs , which then goes into some early live Eruption bits . Not the tapping licks - Al really nails the scarier stuff .

    His tone /attack / feel , and attitude are amazing . He's one of the best I've seen ...
    Then he goes into 'Unchained' riffs to cap it off

    Very nice!

    Fools & the Oakland version of "Unchained."
    I really love his bends, especially the one at 2:27.

    Well, there's your proof that this EVH guitar & Amp CAN produce a close proximity to
    the classic tones.
    I kinda wish Ed would use Al's settings, today.

    First I agree. My 5150 III 2x12 combo does a good early VH. Al is using Marshalls here. Thinks it's a pretty complicated setup. To me anyway. Slaving one amp into another. I'm too lazy for all that. He does get a very good sound though.

    I've seen some other live clips where Al was using a SPLAWN amp , and getting a similar tone .
    Is it possible that the top Marshall head shown here was for clean tones , and the bottom head is for the gain stuff ?

    On that Curt Mitchell 'Play like EVH style' dvd , he had a two amp rig for that purpose as well .

    I wish my hands were that big, it would make it a lot easier to play this stuff...
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.
