Brett Papa could probably make any gear combination sound great but there's something extra special going on here with the session ace / tutor /amp expert and this Marshall SV20H Studio Vintage amp. Following on from Bill Kelliher's recent JCM 800 Studio Series demo, it's another great showcase of Marshall's 20-watt relatively affordable tube amps.
Papa himself calls the results from this Marshall SV20H Studio Vintage one of the best Eddie Van Halen tones he's ever had in his life, and that's high praise from a man who was a key figure building custom amps for players at Divided By 13.
We love videos like this because they don't just showcase a great player and gear, but how pro's approach getting the sounds of legendary players. Always an education.
