EVH Eddie Van Halen 5150 III 50 Watt 6L6 Tube Guitar Amplifier Head

Pair the 5150 III head with any speaker cabinet and immerse yourself in high-gain magnificence. This 50-watt beast boasts a duo of powerful 6L6 power tubes.
With its smaller size and portability, the EVH Van Halen 5150 III 50 Watt 6L6 Tube Guitar Amplifier Head is the perfect amp for players who want arena volume and performance in a compact package. Three channels of road- tested sound work for any playing style -- crisp cleans, raw crunch or searing leads, while newly added independent dual-concentric controls allows for gain and volume level matching.

This 2.0 version of the popular 50-watt head delivers a full spectrum of tone -- channel one powers crystal-clear clean tone, channel two ranges from chunky overdrive to tight distortion, and channel three oozes with liquid gain. Channels one and two each have dual concentric gain/volume controls, with shared EQ (low, mid, high). Channel three has its own gain, volume and EQ (low, mid, high) controls. All three channels also have global presence and global resonance controls.

This amp head also includes selectable impedance (4, 8 or 16 ohms), dual parallel speaker output jacks, effects loop, headphone jack, line out and a four-button footswitch with 1/4" input jack and MIDI input.

Loaded with pure EVH sound and power, the EVH 5150III 50W 6L6 Head is wrapped in textured vinyl and features the instantly recognizable black EVH-striped steel grille. A high-quality fitted cover is available as an EVH Accessory.

"Absolutely perfect"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
If you are looking for an amp that can be used for any kind of metal tone, look no further! I couldn’t be more impressed! Never thought i’d say that an amp has more gain than I could ever need, but it does! .....and I mean this in the most positive way! I play mostly metal, using the blue channel with a Tubescreamer is absolutely perfect!
