Inside Eddie and Wolfgang''s rigs.

Wolfgang Super Bassman Heads

Wolfgang Super Bassman Heads
Wolfgang also uses two 300-watt, all-tube Fender Super Bassman heads (plus two backups). The vintage channel of one head drives a Fender 2x15 cab, while the overdrive channel of the other drives a Fender 8x10 cab.

When PG caught up with Van Halen before their April 27, 2012, performance at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, the only thing more thrilling than getting a guided tour of Eddie’s and Wolfgang’s rigs from their techs, Craig DeFalco and Jim Survis, was getting to sit through soundcheck and hear Ed, Wolf, and Alex pound out flawless versions of classics such as “Unchained” and “Runnin’ with the Devil.” Sadly, we can’t share the unreal listening experience with you—but we can share our great shots of their gear. Enjoy!
