    Default Can Sig:X do Brown sound?

    Hey guys,

    i was kiding with the amp (Sig:X) and just hapened to sound close to Van Halen.

    I think i can get it to sound much closer...maybe i'll record some better Brownies latter

    So here is my 1st atempt to get it


    Here is the link:

    Not bad dude! settings???

    Just needs that butter sustain... I've been toying with the idea that putting a good compressor in the fx loop, in parallel, might give a vht a little more of that butter feel while preserving most of the amps clarity, dynamics, and punch that we all love.

    But what do I know, I'm just cave man.

    Anyone try this yet? What compressor? results???

    I think it may possibly need more mids and on the wood setting if it isn't.

    Geting closer to the brown sound on SIg:X, i think!!!

    Here is the link to another clip:

    Maybe it needs a little more drive...
    This time was boosted with a SD1 with the tone a bit on the bright side. It was the rythm chanell on vintage and wood settings

    The guitar is a different one than the 1st clip too. This is a strat type with a single-coil on bridge, wich the SIG seems to love

    Kudos! Put that clip in a band context with a nice plate reverb and a decent mastering job and I think you'd piss off a lot of people who spent loads of money of modded plexis and clones (though they'd never cop to it) You can hear the key elements here, but because it isn't a plexi, diehards will find fault with it.

    I personally think the elusive EVH 1 sound has much more to do with playing chops and great recording technique that most people want to admit.

    That you can get it that close on homemade clips speaks to yout ear for tone and a talent deeper that just copping EVH.
