eddievanhalen2400 After nearly three years in development, EVH is pleased to announce the launch of the 5150III 1×12 50-watt combo amplifier. This is not your average 1×12 combo by any stretch. In line with Eddie Van Halen’s legacy, this 1×12 is a true game changer, making players swear they’re standing in front of a half-stack.

The EVH 5150III® 1×12 is an all-tube combo amp, featuring three channels of pure 5150-III high performance tone (clean, crunch and lead). Fitted with a single 12-inch Celestion®, 16-ohm speaker and powered by seven JJ ECC83 (12AX7) preamp tubes and two JJ 6L6 power tubes, it also features front-panel adjustable power output from 50 watts down to one watt. The adjustable power feature is especially useful in achieving “fully cranked” sounds while maintaining reasonable overall volume levels.

Features include a single input, rear-panel selectable output impedance (4, 8 or 16 ohms), versatile controls (gain, low, mid, high, volume, master presence, rear-panel master resonance, power level, reverb), built-in DSP reverb, rear-panel MIDI input and preamp output, two rear-panel parallel speaker outputs, rear-panel effects loop and headphone jack (mutes power amp), and four-button footswitch (controls all three channels and reverb).

Top-notch construction features a custom-shaped birch cabinet with special and exclusive internal baffling, vintage-style chicken-head control knobs, red jewel, plastic top strap handle and casters. A fitted cover is optional. Available in Black and Ivory.

    I personally think lower wattage amps sound better. You get a great, tube driven 30- 50 watt amp and you can push the amp to get that rich, warm, crunchy tube overdrive at lower volumes, unlike a larger 100 watt head which could take a higher volume to get to that threshold. All amps are different, just like guitars. Some players prefer tube amps while others prefer solid state amps. Some prefer full on scooped, over the top wall of distortion while others prefer a more midrange overdrive, old-school crunch. The key nowadays, because people are so price cautious, is to pack as much versatility into one amp and one guitar. For the record, I love simple tube amps with very limited pedals in the signal chain. The limited effects I use are a Way Huge Green Rhino Overdrive, an MXR Phase 90, an MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay, a Crybaby Wah and a Boss Tuner and that’s all and I only use the MXR pedals and the Crybaby for leads. A great amp really doesn’t need anything in front of it. Angus and Malcolm never played with effects. And never let anyone tell you that a 50 watt amp can’t be loud because that’s incorrect! Don’t believe me? Then plug into one and crank it up.
