EVH 5150III 50 Watt 6L6 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier

Crank out 50 watts of searing saturation with this slick 5150III 2x12" combo. A pair of heavy-duty 6L6 power tubes screams with aggressive American muscle.
An amp designed for the masses, the EVH 5150III 6L6 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 5150III 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 impedance, MIDI compatibility, and read more the included four-button footswitch.

The Right Stuff

In order to handle all this gain and mayhem, the 5150III 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 speakers, known for their robust midrange and punchy tonality.

Brimming with brawny tone, the EVH 5150III 50W 6L6 212 Combo is arena-sized sound in a Celestion powered compact package for more convenient transport.

Redesigned with versatile, all-new independent dual- concentric controls that allow for gain and volume level matching, this 50-watt tube combo amp boasts three channels for any playing style— crisp cleans, raw crunch or searing leads.

Delivering a full-spectrum of tone, channel one features pristine cleans, channel two kicks in with overdrive and heavy gain similar to the EVH 5150III 100S, while channel three oozes with liquid distortion. 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, resonance and reverb controls.

Loaded with dual 12” custom special designed EVH Celestion speakers to enhance and refine both your sound and your style, this combo amp also has seven JJ ECC83 (12AX7) preamp tubes, two JJ 6L6 power tubes and front-panel adjustable power output from 50 watts down to one watt.

Other features include a single input, rear-panel selectable output impedance (4, 8 or 16 ohms) with a pair of parallel speaker outputs, rear-panel MIDI input and preamp output, rear-panel effects loop and headphone jack (mutes power amp), and a four-button footswitch that controls all three channels and reverb for easy onstage switching.

The cabinet is constructed out of birch with special internal baffling for tight and increased bass response. Wrapped in stylish Black or Ivory vinyl, the EVH 5150III 50W 6L6 212 Combo is finished off with vintage-style chicken-knobs, red LED jewel indicator, molded black plastic top handle and pop-out casters. A high-quality fitted cover is available as an EVH Accessory.

I have the first EVH Combo Amp and used it at a 4 Th of July Gig - It really caused some fire works . It delivered on all 3 Channels and was loud enough for an out door Gig
