    I love this...

    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    LOL. I missed this.
    I think it's the tape strip for the picks putting it in that range.

    That’s Mike Palermo from up here in Ontario. Does a lot of EVH stuff and stuff for Hollywood Vampires.

    Not really to into the fact that his signature guitars, especially the 335 style guitars he makes, have pickups that read at 14 and 15k but it looks like he does great work.

    DC resistance measurements are widely used as a gauge of the “output” of passive magnetic pickups. This use of DC resistance is both technically incorrect and often misleading; to find out why, read on…

    I'm sorry, but a PAF reading 7.7k is not going to sound the same as a bucker that reads 13k. They won't and don't.

    So, while technically it might not be "correct" to compare pickups using this measurement, to the ear there is a difference.

    Some people seem to forget that the EVH sound was not really due to 'hot' pickups (slightly overwound was certainly mentioned back in the day), or seven12AX7's in the preamp. The signal (obviously including his hands) had a few variables, yet was mainly a PAF pickup into amps played LOUD.Sheer volume and power amp distortion.

    Even later with the Peavey 5150's, the gain wasn't cranked, yet from personal experience, using his post gain/master volume settings? You knew it was almost earplug time!
