EVH 5150 III EL34 50w, Eddie Van Halen Signature Tube Amplifier Head, 3 Channels, 50 Watts
Seeing the initials "EVH" on any kind of amplifier gives you a good idea of what you're in for - ferocious tone, bags of power, and the kind of sustain and saturation that guitarists have been crying out for for nigh-on four decades. The EVH 5150 III EL34 certainly delivers on all four of those fronts!
Stunning To Behold, Both Visually and Aurally
Featuring the same lethal looks and ferocious tone as it's big brother, the EL34 100 Watt head, this EVH 5150 III EL34 50 Watt boasts three independent channels and those signature "British Sound" EL34 power tubes to deliver all of the sustain and versatility you'd expect from one of Mr Van Halen's signature amps.
Three Channels of Tonal Ferocity
The EVH 5150 III EL34 50w gives you three distinct channels to play around with. Channel one offers you a sparkling and compressed clean tone, whilst channels two and three offer something altogether darker with bags of saturation.
Channels 1 and 2 are controlled via dual concentric gain/volume controls, and share a 3-band EQ (low, mid and high), whilst Channel 3 has it's own independent EQ. Each channel can be activated via footswitch, giving you plenty of options to play around with when you're looking for the perfect tone choices.
Other Control Options
In addition to the independent channel controls, the EVH5150 III EL34 also features a rear-panel resonance control (for tailoring low-frequency response on all channels) and global Presence control. There's also effects loop, headphone jack, pre-amp out and midi-in sockets, making the amp suitable for literally any situation.
Great New Looks
With the EVH 5150 III EL34 you get the usual EVH motif, but in this case it's finished in an elegant Gold and Black. In my own personal opinion this is the best-looking EVH signature amplifier to date, no contest!
