Wood revealed that the idea came about when he was going to do a Van Halen-leaning video on the BOSS SDE 3000VH and fellow VH fanatic Pete Thorn beat him to it. So he got thinking about a bigger idea, integrating that delay pedal based on the digital delay rack unit Eddie used: 'What would it be like to shrink Ed's $30,000/$40,000 rig into a pedalboard?"
Well now we know, with the help of XAct Tone Solutions (XTS) in Nashville. The results can switch from wet/dry/wet to mono with the flick of a switch. XTS even put it on a striped pedalboard.
The video above includes XTS talking through how the 'board works, as well as session pro Andy's playing and the reaction of guest players to the rig. Spoiler: in case you didn't know, Andy has his EVH chops down.
And just to prove how good the pedalboard is, it's run through three mic'd Roland Micro Cubes instead of the 5150s, and it still sounds amazing!
