With its smaller size and portability, the EVH 5150III 50W 6L6 Head is the perfect amp for players who want arena volume and performance in a compact package. Three channels of road- tested sound work for any playing style - crisp cleans, raw crunch or searing leads, while newly added independent dual-concentric controls allows for gain and volume level matching.

This 2.0 version of the popular 50-watt head delivers a full-spectrum of tone - channel one powers crystal-clear clean tone, channel two ranges from chunky overdrive to tight distortion, and channel three oozes with liquid gain. 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 and global resonance controls.

This amp head also includes selectable impedance (4, 8 or 16 ohms), dual parallel speaker output jacks, effects loop, headphone jack, line out and a four-button footswitch with 1/4" input jack and MIDI input.

Loaded with pure EVH sound and power, the EVH 5150III 50W 6L6 Head is wrapped in Black or Ivory textured vinyl and features an instantly recognizable black EVH-striped steel grille.

This is a great amp, had it over a year. All 3 channels sound awesome (now), but I had 2 issues with this amp. At first I was disappointed with the sound but thought I didn't have it dialed in (and I noticed a strange ringing). I decided to try ordering some tubes. One of the power tubes was microphonic (ringing), changing them fixed that ringing noise but never improved sound. Then I changed a few pre amp tubes and holy crap, it came to life! So issue 1 is they could use better tubes. Issue 2 has been a recent development. When I switch out of standby or engage the effects loop there is a loud pop. But I do have an excellent sound on all 3 channels now and I'm very happy with that (even at low volume). My amp was fresh from factory and doesn't gig around.

Je possède cette tête depuis quelques jours. Je l?ai acheté car l?autre guitariste de notre band possède la même tête. J?adorais le son qui sortait de son ampli et je n?ai jamais réusi à reproduire, avec ma tête peavey triple xxx, la qualité d?ataque et de distortion que la tête EVH peut donner.
Voilà c?est fait. Je me suis fait un cadeau. Je suis en amour avec cette tête. La sépation des reglages pour les 2 canaux de distortions sont un plus non négligeable sur cette nouvelle version. Un super grain de distortion avec une attaque bien compressée. On obtient aisément un beau son dès qu?on branche la guitare.
Se branche en midi avec mon gt 100, dont je me sert pour les effets en branchement 4 cables. Les changements de canaux en fonction du patch sélectionné sont donc tous automatiques.
Versatile du clean au crunch jusqu?au gros métal. Tout est une question de goût mais moi j?adore cette tête et la recommande sans hésitation !!!

Have had this amp for a few weeks now and I am totally in love. The green channel is a fender (minus the built in reverb). The blue channel is everywhere from blues overdrive to 80s heavy metal and the red channel is some of the most crushing distortion ive ever heard. The new dual concentric knobs for channel one and two mean you dont have to sacrifice any tone and theres no volume jump (which was what put me off from buying sooner). My last amp was a 6505+ and in my opinion this is a far superior amp. Also sounds great at bedroom volume.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
