EVH Eddie Van Halen Limited Edition 5150III 100S Custom Stealth Guitar Amplifier Head (100 Watts)

Glowing with the power of eight ECC83 preamp tubes and four aggressive 6L6 power tubes, this hand-customized 100-watt head screams with rock 'n' roll tone.

This limited edition hand-customized EVH 5150 III 100S head is identical to the one Eddie Van Halen toured with, and features the exact same custom modifications. The head and cabinet are available individually, or together as a complete half stack.

The 100-watt head features a single input and three channels (clean, crunch, lead), each with versatile controls (volume, gain, presence, low, mid, high). Channel two features increased gain for greater sustain and is re-voiced for improved low-mid frequency definition; channel three also features increased gain and improved range for the "low" control. Further, each channel has a rear-panel resonance control knob that dials in fine-tuned low-end response. The amp boasts eight JJ ECC83 preamp tubes, four Shuguang 6L6 power tubes, switchable output impedance (4, 8 and 16 ohms) and adjustable bias control. Other features include vintage-style "chicken head" control knobs, red jewel, dual speaker jacks, effects loop, direct out and molded plastic handle.

The head comes in a special black "Stealth" aesthetic; and a seven-pin, four-button footswitch is included (controls each channel and the effects loop). Optional EVH fitted cover also available.

Great amp!!!!!! This is the 5150III on steroids. Lots of gain and the clean channel is very good. It is on the tad noisy side. All the control knobs are very sensitive. This amp is the real modded deal right out of the box. The only thing I would recommend would be to get the matching cab. I tried this head with 4 different cabs and the EVH 4 X 12 sounded the best hands down.
