Am I the only one who thinks some of Rockstah's old clips sound closer than Ralle's clips?

Ralle's clips are ridiculously close, great stuff.. I like Rockstah's also I think they're very close..

I wish I had an amp to butcher into EVH specs but im not prepared to go modding my '69 SB when it's in such perfect stock condition.. Will have to get a '68 metroamp to tweak for that illustrious tone.

I posted a question in an older thread with no response, so I thought I might try again here. If you can recall ralle's VHII clips, I was curious what power tubes were used. My initial guess was some NOS EL34's but now I am thinking maybe the JJ EL34's. Does anyone know?

I should post some clips because I am chasing the tone like many others. I have VH I and WACF pretty well understood. It is interesting because a lot of assumptions are made based on photos and talk of live rigs. But I don't think what was done on tour necessarily matches what was done in the studio.

In payment for a response to this question, here's a hidden gem that you might not have known about: http://members.tripod.com/azdz/articles ... vh1995.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;.

Great interview; thanks for posting that.
Dweezil seems like a big fan who's genuinely ecstatic to be talking to his idol.

I did think RAlles were the best clips when I joined this forum, but since then, I think rockstar's work, mod 5 etc and then his slaving -exhibit a clip is the best I have heard yet!

820ohm (2) (Two accounts say these drifted to just over 1k (1.1k). Ive used 1k here before (on cerrums suggestion) and it definitely sounds smoother but its very sublte.
Will a CC 1k 1/2 watt resistors work here?

Thanks Mark! Yes, I think my 50w does have the 1k but I'm gearing up to order a 68 kit and am trying to get all my ducks lined up: Pooring through the old threads and learning allot and having a ball:D
