Can the Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe V2 get all VH tones of V1?

Hello,
I'm about to buy a Wampler Pinnacle after being impressed by the Van Halen tones the V1 has. But I then found there was a V2 with different options ( and more knobs),
I searched youtube and many forums looking for comparisons of the V1 and V2, but can't find any info if the new redesigned pedal can get the same 3 tones the V1 has listed in the manual.
I've even written Wampler and the reply I received was:
"With the addition of the 3 band EQ, The PINN dlxe is even more versatile. Both pedals serve well. Tone is always subjective, I would suggest test driving both of those pedals in your signal path"

I don't live anywhere close enough that even carries Wampler Pedals ( I checked)
I called Wampler 3 or 4 times, but always got a recording to leave a message, but they never got back to me.
So I'm hoping someone out there may have an opinion / info on my question.
thank you

I recall replying back myself! I said this: It can get the same tones as the first (simpler) version, but getting the "van halen tones" has a lot to do with your playing style, as well as what guitar and amp you're playing. No one's going to nail VH1 and VH2 tones with a rickenbacker and a gorilla amp. With that said, there is much more control to the deluxe version, since the bass and treble controls interact a bit.
