    Yeah guys - back on topic!

    VH in a box. Because you can! I'm gonna go hunt down the Mosky in vids. Obviously not a Mad Prof clone...

    I'll have to dig in the patches (not in my memory ATM); I'll get back with that.

    Also keep in mind, I use the Two Notes C.A.B. M in conjunction with the MP-1 for the power amp sim as well as speaker cab sim.

    I also do a "post-EQ" with the Quadraverb (final piece of gear in chain before it hits the power amp).

    Using all of these gear items, I can recreate studio VH1 tone... live.

    EDIT: (obviously set to tube distortion)

    OD1: 5.5
    OD2: 5.0
    Master Gain: 5.0
    Bass: 6
    Mid: 4
    Treble: 4
    Presence: 12

    Ace, I have a Mosky Brown that is like new with box that I'm going to move on from if you you are interested. It is supposed to be a Wampler Pinnacle clone. I also have one of those if you are interested

    I just sold my Pinnacle (exchanged it for a Zvex Distortron) because I get a nice VH sound from my JHS Andy Timmons.

    I had the Fab Overdrive, great sounding pedal, if the Fab Distortion is anything near as good it probably sounds great. Haven't tried it so can't comment on the VH-ness.

    I wasn't sure if that was a joke, but now that you mention it the Fab Fuzz is awesome and the delay is pretty damn good too!

    If they had packaged some of those fab pedals in a normal looking metal box, they would still be on pedalboards. The OD really was awesome.

    You guys are all missing it. VH1 Eddies tone was the flares on his jeans.

    Later Eddie moved to jumpsuits and tight pants that created all that chorus effect from the blood constriction.

    For VH1 tone .... just wear the period correct jeans -also add Adidas track shoes for more gain, boots for more brown.

    @Aceman, I read the thread and my english is good enough to understand you are looking for a pedal (or 2). I don't know any, but maybe a Zoom G1 Four can do the trick? It's one pedal and you can program it for that VH1 sound (or at least close to). The user interface is very easy to deal with. Just activate the pedal when needed. You can even insert the pitch shift block to play in Eb (very useful at least to practice with the record like in the good old days LOL). Freaking good processor also for headphone practice, and knowing that you also play bass, I think you can upload some bass amp models on the unit too.

    Y'all are wrong.

    You can only get Ed tone by chugging these:

    Was that his tone enhancer of choice back then? I would have guessed whiskey

    I remember trying that back in the day, after a few it worked well, at least to my ears.
