Loaded with pure EVH sound and power, the new EVH 5150 III 50-Watt Head is a scaled-down version of its acclaimed 100-watt big brother. Its smaller size and portability make it a perfect amp for players who want arena volume, tone and performance in a compact package.

This is a three-channel amp, channels one and two share EQ with gain, low, mid, high and volume controls. Channel three has gain, low, mid, high, volume and master presence and resonance controls. Other features include selectable impedance 4, 8 or 16 ohms with dual parallel speaker output jacks, effects loop, headphone jack, line out and black hardware. Included is a four-button footswitch that has a 1/4 input jack and also accommodates MIDI footswitching. This amp has black textured vinyl covering with a black EVH-striped grille.

Optional Fitted Cover available 07-9197

The new EVH 5150 III 50-Watt Head is a perfect amp for players who want arena volume, tone and performance in a compact package. This is a three-channel amp. Channels one and two share EQ. Some people complain about the volume difference between one and two. This is a non-issue since if you turn up the gain the volume difference levels out. Plus it is MIDI controllable so you can pre-program volume settings. Plus, most of the time I switch between Channel one and three or I switch between Channel two and three. So there is no issue. There are many ways to have effective channel switching. Plus, the tone, man, the TONE is the best of any amp I have ever tried. Plus I have two heads and two cabinets. I went for the Mesa Boogie 2x12 Rectifier cabinets which takes 120 watts with two Celestion V30’s. The head uses JJ tubes, which are premium tubes. The amp head has it all. I destroyed a previous amp I was trying to use until I got smart and went for a high performance setup. The resonance control really gets the lows to chug. I love it when I can feel the speakers pumping the air as well as hearing that legendary EVH “brown sound.” The footswitch is ergonomic and intuitive. Placing delay effects in the effects loop is another way of being able to control the volume level between channels. All 3 channels sound amazing. Ed knows how to build amps. All controls are where they should be. If you're into clean, crunch and high gain, this is the amp for you and me. This is the future of guitar amplification. There is no modeling amp out there that can touch this amp for sound or functionality. Come to think of it, there aren’t many tube amps out there either that can touch this bodacious amp. Thank you Eddie, and thank you Fender. For those about to rock, we salute you... And if you listen very hard, the tune will come to you at last...

I can't believe the price. It's worth twice. It is nice. Sounds like A Different Kind Of Truth. It is perfect. All 3 channels sound amazing. Before I bought it I read several reviews. 99.5% loved it .5% complained about power switches at the back and a volume jump from 1 to 2. Power switches at the back don't bother me, once it's on, it's on. There is a slight volume jump from 1 to 2 but it is perfect for my style of playing. I love it and wouldn't change it. Ed knows how to build. Best band for your buck big time and one of, if not the best, amps I've ever owned. I love it. If you're into EVH, this is the amp for you. I hope this helps someone decide to buy it or not. It is Awesome. Thanks to L&M and Marko at the Stafford store. Rock on !

This little amp really rocks! The shared gain on clean and crunch can be a bit limiting, it's touchy to find the right volume balance between the two channels. The crunch channel is absolutely awesome, tons of heavy tube crunch with endless sustain. The lead channel is over the top, almost too much gain above 3 on the dial, I replaced V4 with a 12AU7 to tame it a bit. Lots of volume, controls have a steep taper, volume level goes up quickly. Very useful 4 button footswitch. Portable metal machine!
