An amp designed for the masses, the EVH 5150 III combo amp aims to cover all the bases. It's got variable power selection from one to 50 watts, two Celestion speakers, and three channels that go from polite clean to sociopathic distortion.

Three Channels of Madness

Built to fulfill the high-gain fantasies of sadistic metalheads, the 5150 series has become known for raunchy distortion, but this amp offers much more than copious gain. Clean -- the first of its three channels -- offers crisp, clear tones great for blues or even country. On the crunch channel, you'll hear the classic "brown sound" with warm vintage distortion that's responsive to your pick attack. The ridiculous amounts of gain on the lead channel should leave no one wanting more, but if you want to further define your tone, the two sets of three-band EQs along with master presence and reverb give you plenty of tone shaping tools.

Flexibility at All Levels

Make no mistake, the EVH 5150 III is one powerful amp. But it can also tone things down when it needs to. With its variable power scaling, the amp can run from between one to 50 watts. This makes it suitable for late night bedroom practice or rocking hundreds of faces with blasting power chords. When you really need to quiet down, the headphone output keeps the sound for your ears only. Other practical features are the two parallel 1/4" outputs with 4/8/16 ohms selectable, MIDI compatibility, and the included four-button footswitch.

The Right Stuff

In order to handle all this gain and mayhem, the 5150 III had to have the right components. EVH powers the amp with two 6L6 tubes in the power section and seven 12 AX7 tubes in the preamp. Delivering that all-tube sound are two Celestion G12M Greenback speakers, known for their robust midrange and punchy tonality.

Features:

- 1-50 watts selectable output
- Two Celestion G12M Greenback speakers
- Three channels (clean, crunch, and lead)
- Three-band EQ for channels 1 and 2 and separate EQ for channel 3
- Master presence and reverb controls
- Seven 12AX7 preamp tubes
- Two 6L6 power tubes
- Two parallel 1/4" outputs selectable between 4, 8, and 16 ohms
- MIDI compatible
- Four-button footswitch included

Get all the gain you could ever want at any volume you need with the EVH 5150 III.

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. "Wow this amp can growl, very impressed with this quality built and sexy EVH Ivory finish"
Overall: Wow have just begun to play this bad boy. Was shipped on time! Packaged great! Unpacked and found myself some 4 hours later playing with the amps sounds very, very impressed and happy. The only thing I could possibly say negative would be the way the casters plug into the bottom of the cabinet. They need a retainer ring, so when you push the caster in they stay into the cabinet. I had 2 that we're a little loose, moved them around in positions with the others until finding somewhat of a snug fit. They will only loosen with time thou. Not a big deal, maybe for next design Eddie have casters with retainers and bigger wheels like 3". Also adding a mp3 port would be pure esctacy! Thx zZsounds for making the deal go through fast & safe shipping using gr8 shippers "Fedex" Love this amp Eddie!! Cya on stage!! Cheers

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awesome look and killer tone!!"
Overall: I must say this amp is probably the best combo I've played through in a long time. I got the ivory combo which looks absolutely awesome. Quality on this amp is solid, very we'll built. Dialing in any tone is easy. Tones anywhere from clean, blues, rock, and metal. Probably my favorite feature is the capability of using 1watt to 50 watts, perfect for bedroom volumes and you do not lose any tone whatsoever. This is a fairly big combo. Comes with castors and recessed side handles which is a plus. Also at 50 watts this amp is LOUD!!! Once again, amp is a little on the pricy side but with zZounds installment payments plans it's a no brainer!!
