EVH Eddie Van Halen 5150III EL34 Tube Guitar Amplifier Head (50 Watts)

Blast off into the iconic tones of classic EVH with this 50-watt monster of an amp. EL34 power tubes add iconic British-style snarl for aggressive overdrive.

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.

A footswitch is included.
