EVH Eddie Van Halen 5150 Iconic Series Tube Amplifier Head (80 Watts)

Dial in 5150 gain for an affordable price! This workhorse amp head boasts 2 channels with an extra voicing mode on each, 1/4 power switch, and 10 dB boost.

The EVH 5150 Iconic Series satisfies the needs of gigging and recording guitarists craving that pure and powerful EVH tube tone, but at a more affordable price. Evolving from the revered EVH 5150III amplifiers, the Iconic Series delivers the searing sound and growling gain that the late Eddie Van Halen made famous throughout his groundbreaking career.

Designed by renowned amp engineer, James Brown, the 5150 Iconic Series 80W Head is powered by four JJ 6L6 power tubes and voiced with two JJ ECC83S preamp tubes, providing all the firepower the modern guitarist needs.

This head features two channels with an extra voicing on each for even more versatility. The Green channel boasts an overdrive button to run from lush clean tones to increased gain, while the Red channel's burn button adds fiery crunch that's ideal for blistering leads.

Each channel houses its own gain and volume controls, allowing for level-matching the volume when switching between the clean and high gain channels. The channel two noise gate's quick attack suppresses any hiss while ensuring all staccato riffing is articulate and crisp, not choked and choppy. The Boost control on Channel 2 allows you to add another 10 dB of foot-switchable volume to your tone -- perfect for ensuring your solos cut through the mix. The control panel also includes shared EQ (Low, Mid and High), global resonance and presence knobs to adjust the low- and high-end aspects of your tone, and a global reverb control to add the perfect read more amount of bounce and decay for any room.

Other features include a two-button footswitch, effects loop, dual parallel speaker output jacks, 1/4 power switch to reduce wattage -- allowing you to crank the amp and still preserve tone but without destroying your neighbor's solitude, and a speaker-emulated DI XLR with power amp mute for accurate all-tube EVH tone for recording direct or using through any PA system.

Sporting sophisticated and distinctive EVH style, the 5150 Iconic Series 80-watt head is wrapped in either Black or Ivory textured vinyl with a brushed aluminum front panel and black steel grille featuring silver and black 5150 and EVH logo badges. This head is finished off with vintage-style chicken-head knobs, red LED jewel indicator and molded black plastic top handle. A high-quality fitted cover is available as an EVH accessory.

"Great sound and feel to this amp."
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Really pleased with the tones/feel this amp puts out. I'm playing blues, rock and hard rock. I don't play heavy modern and there are plenty of vids of it chugging.There was one clip I watched that showed it covering sonic ground that I liked. I bought it based on what I heard. My ears were not wrong. Dynamics of rolling off guitar volume/tone knobs is rewarding. Amp has a set of ballz. I've had an EVH 412 cab for years now. The Iconic sounds excellent through it.The Green OD channel is my fave.Only con I have is the noise gate. It has minimal gateing. Don't use reverb but it's ok.
