    As reviewed by RUSS POWELL on 9/26/2013

    When I started looking into buying a 5150 III, all I could find were videos of metal guys and Van Halen riffers. No disrespect to either intended but this amp goes sooo much deeper than that. My background -I've been playing over 30 years, owned dozens of pedals, amps and guitars and I play out a couple times a month. Band does a mixed set Merle and Waylon to Zep and the Foo's. This amp handles it all. Channel One - Gorgeous, lush, chimey Fender clean. Has an immediate attack when playing country but lots of sustain when you want to let those fat crystal-clear notes ring out. Channel Two - Again, immediate attack. rich creamy distortion without getting too grainy. But you can dial it back for some smooth overdrive. Either way, there is beautiful note separation and little compression. Channel three - Perfect lead channel. Will get as searing as you want. This is where you see the metal-guys get that weird smile and their eyes glaze over. Haha. For good reason. I play with the gain at 10:00 and the volume at 8:00 and it is ferocious. Bottom line : One of the most versatile amps I've played. The best live sound I've ever had was with this amp AND the distortion is so good on it, I was able to pull 3 pedals off my pedalbard (Dist,OD,Boost).I can't imagine anyone needing a dirt pedal of any kind with this. I get compliments from country guys and rock guys alike on "my" sound. Who am I kidding though - it's not me, it's this incredible amp. Please don't let all the metal riffers and VH wankers in the reviews make you turn away from this amp. You'd be ignoring potentially one of the best amps you'll ever play.

  • Right out of the box

    As reviewed by Anthony Robichaud on 11/15/2007

    I've had 30th anniversary 3 channel amps for years and when the new EVH came out I read the Guitar world article and thought, This has been done before, it's called the 30th anniversary Marshall head. Last month I had an opportunity to test drive this EVH half stack ( at low volume ) and it blew my mind and made me sad because it meant that I would have to sell all my gear; and I did. I just sold 3 Marshall heads and 4 Marshall cabinets. Your wasting your time with any other amp. If you play any kind of rock to Metal stop wasting your time and get this Head and Cabinet. The specs are the same as what I used to have, but they are not the same at all. This is what Marshall should have done; I know that Eddie took everything he ever used and heard to put this together, but this is a new product. The gain doesn't get oversaturated and the Tone just gets better and better. The clean channel can be a gain channel as well. It's not overpriced, cause you'll never need anything else. The biggest decision I had to make was the Color; I chose an Ivory full stack. I won't get it for 3 weeks and I can't wait. It'll be Christmas no matter what day it gets here. Thanks Eddie and EVH, Fender and Whomever else. Dr. Tone

  • Eddie's experience is your bonus...

    As reviewed by William Brice on 12/7/2012

    MOI BUENO, This amp is simply the finest amp money can buy. It has been thorougly road tested and R & D's by Eddie for almost 2 years...on the road. The Fender engineers gave Van Halen exactly what he thought a great power amp should be. All three channels have their specific niche and go way beyond your expectations. Channel one is actually Bell and Chimey clean. Channel two is pure Eddie; and channel three is Eddie's sound on steroids. The controls are beautiful and function with a high qualtiy feel; the pedal for switching is silent and rock solid. The front grille alone weighs about 2 pounds...Schumacher proprietary transformers; JJ tubes; tube driven effects loop performs beauifully and is foot switchable...what more could you want. When you get yours be sure and have the bias checked, you can do it yourself with some care & experience and a tube socket Bias Probe...chassis comes out easy as apple pie and the bias pot is clearly discernible(purple)...they tend to come biased from the factory a little cold whereas mine was only biased at 20 milliamps; the JJ tubes can easily be biased to at least 32 which is out of crossover distortion and into a great "sweet spot".The amp sounds even more alive and present with the higher Bias of the stock 4 JJ power tubes. My guitar player with 30 years experience playing with pro skill fell in love with the 5150iii amp. You will be amazed by this amp...just buy one...you will never look back. Thanks Eddie Van Halen & Thanks Fender. I also placed 2 JJ gold pin tubes in V1 & V8...awesome. P.S. Eurotubes is a great source for tubes and information about easy and proper biasing...great guys. And thanks GC.
