EVH Eddie Van Halen 5150III EL34 Head

Independent volume and gain control for all three channels has arrived with the 5150III(R) 50W EL34 head. Experience total control, along with the same lethal looks and ferocious EL34 tone of the 100-Watt head.

The EL34 power tubes deliver smoother contours, and greater sag and saturation that evoke a more modern "British" sound, all with more sustain and versatility than ever before.
Channel one boasts a more sparkling and compressed clean tone, while channels two and three possess a slightly darker and compressed tone with even more saturation than before. Other features include a rear-panel resonance control that tailors low-frequency response for all channels, a global presence control and shared three-band EQ for channels 1 and 2 with an independent EQ for channel 3.

Wrapped in an elegant gold and black EVH motif, the EL34 50-watt head also is equipped with an effects loop, headphone jack, pre-amp out and MIDI-in.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of EVH products.

"Amazing!!"
Overall: I’ve had my el34 59 watt head for about three months now(I preordered it) it is amazing . With a few tweaks of the eq you can pretty much find any sound you want. There is so much gain you don’t need an overdrive in front of it. If you do.. I have found some of pedals almost hold the gain back.. if you’re looking for that evh sound from the early years tweaking the blue channel is where it’s at. There are only two things I wish were different 1, the on/off/standby switch should be on the front of the amp. 2, it had reverb built in.. that’s it
Style of Music: Painters, Van Halen , Metallica, killswitch engage, hatebreed.. ect

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.
