Thanks for posting. One of the people who commented on the vid said the track sheet for was VH2. It shows two SM57s on Ed's amp, looks like in a separate room ? They show two faders for Ed, so I guess the guitar tracks were recorded, mixed, and then bussed in mono to the reverb chamber through the Altec Lansing A7 afterwards. Good stuff.

I just logged in to post the same thing, Pretty wild man. Check out the related vids where the girl does a one take eruption and they do running with the devil and other gems.

You can hear the studio sound its freakin unreal. I love it. Just think you could go their and book an hour as a bucket list hit. Would be priceless.

Not much to it now we get the real skinny.
That chamber was delayed though. Would like to know the delay that was used for that.
Lag deck from tape probably?

(Disregard-they said tape slap further into vid so yes lag deck fo sho)

Diggin its two simple cheap ass obtainable sm57's. The old standby workhorse.
One cab and no hocus pocus really.
Wonder more about the actual validity of the 10band.
Eye witness account of who was there?
Theres the gain boost then

But its finally makin sense and comin out of the speculative fog machine.
Cool we get to see this finally.

But in a way sad too. All the awe and wonder and that feeling of wild magic about how it was dies just a little bit.
Kinda like exhuming a tomb really
When you turn 40, then find out you finally do have a child, a 25 year old beautiful daughter?? And.... GRANDKIDS!?! Thats AWESOME!!!!!
