do you know this for a fact first hand or are you repeating something you heard somewhere? I wasnt there, I have always heard that the van halen stuff was cut on a solid state UA console (the blue one). If thats not ture I would certainly like to know. The sound of the first few van halen records absolutely sounds like UA 1108 amplifiers to me, I would be pretty suprised if a tube console was used at all.
