All I know is that I called 7Hz the brown sound back in the day because of its psychoacoustic and physiological effects on the mind and body.

I always thought that reference was to Alex Van Halen’s snare drum sound. He always said alex’s Snare drum sounded like a log, and that’s where they got the term “brown” sound

The brown out of the electrical grid that would often happen in California.

The brown stains on Ed's fingers from cigarettes.

The brown from all the bullshit everyone thinks they know about Eddie's tone.

I've one of the original Guitar World interview copy that Eddie did back in March of 1981 where he laughs (in a kind way) about all the fuss over his tone on the first self titled album released on February 10, 1978 and on March 23, 1979 Van Halen II. Eddie says "it was nothing special, I just cranked my Marshall to 10 and let it rip . . ." The one thing that I find very smart is that the recording engineer on these two albums (Donn Landee) at the Sunset Studio recorded Van Halen in a very large high ceiling room and took advantage of its live chamber. This is how Eddie achieved that beautiful delayed echo on songs like Runnin' with the Devil and Jamie's Cryin' - no DSP reverb here. I personally dislike DSP reverb (it always sounds fabricated) in comparison to a nice open setting with good natural analogue acoustics.
