Product Description

Loaded with pure EVH sound and power, the new EVH 5150 III 50-Watt Head is a scaled-down version of its acclaimed 100-watt big brother - the mighty 5150 III head - with many of the same great features. Its smaller size and portability make it a perfect amp for players who want arena volume, tone and performance in a compact package. It pairs perfectly with the new EVH 5150 III 2x12 and 1x12 cabinets, in addition to the current EVH 5150 III 4x12 cabinet.

It's a three-channel amp; channels one and two share EQ, with gain, low, mid, high and volume controls; channel three has gain, low, mid, high, volume and master presence and resonance controls. Other features include selectable impedance (4, 8 or 16 ohms), dual parallel speaker output jacks, effects loop, headphone jack, line out and black hardware. Included four-button footswitch has 1/4 inch input jack; also accommodates MIDI footswitching.

Features

4-button footswitch with ultra fast switching Midi input that can be used to control channels with virtually any midi device

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (5 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "sell your amp, and buy one now!!!"
Sound: the sound has an organic quality that you don't find outside of old modded plexi's at full blast, but with way more gain on tap. the green channel is a good tube clean, but there is a volume jump from green to blue. the blue channel is where this thing opens up! very percussive and articulate, with great sustain! the red channel is pure searing liquidy blist, great for a lead or super saturated rhythm channel! Feature: I agree with the previous reveiwer, the midi does save the day with the volume jump, I use a digitech gsp1101 and it take care of it. on the same note using the gsp, the effects loop is very transparent. the included footswitch is also cool. Ease of Use: this thing was effortless to setup, and it sounded good at every setting. even the midi setup was easy, took 2 minutes to set all my patches! Quality: seems to be built like a tank, but time will tell how it will hold up to the old 5150's road standards! Value: best amp on the market for the value! Manufacturer Support: haven't had to deal with them yet. The Wow Factor: great sound, midi, and loud as hell......WOW! Overall: the title says it all!
Style of Music: anything thats loud with distortion!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "this amp is extremely verstile"
Sound: this thing sounds awesome. i have respect for eddie van halen, but my style is nothing like his. i play a lot of funk and classic rock, but i touch on old and new metal styles, jazz, soul, motown, etc. this amp will do almost anything convincingly. needless to say clean sounds are very important for all of this and this head is better than my fender deville for this and obviously the blue and red channels are awesome. Feature: the midi on this saves it from its biggest flaw, the jump in volume from the green to blue channels. with my HD500 i can fix this, but if you do not have anything similar youre going to probably be irritated by it. Ease of Use: pretty simple, no problems setting it up for anything so far Quality: as far as reliability im not too sure because i just got it, but it seems pretty solid. Value: great value especially with the 8 payment plan i got from AMS. Manufacturer Support: 5 year warranty, and somewhere i saw a forum before i bought this that a guy that worked for fender was answering all kinds of questions and seemed to be pretty helpful, from what ive seen theyre standing behind it 100 percent. The Wow Factor: 3 channels, midi switching, easier to carry than most heads, extreme versatility, the ability to mount it to the cab and tilt it. for me it has plenty of wow factor Overall: I use this amp with my POD HD500, life is so much easier now
Style of Music: anything i can get a band to jam on

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
