Eddie Van Halen's use of two-handed tapping and tremolo picking has often been imitated but never duplicated. Nevertheless, guitarists who are fans of his style can certainly get one stop closer to achieving his sound when they're decked out with an EVH amp. As you might've guessed, EVH is the signature brand of the man himself, and this section boasts an impressive variety of heads, cabinets, combos and stacks. Whether you're a stay-at-home enthusiast or have your eyes set on the biggest stage in town, an EVH guitar amp is just what you need to bring your skills to the forefront.
Of course, the right fit for you will depend on your own needs and tastes. For example, if it's a cab that you're after, check out the 5150III 4x12 Guitar Extension Cabinet. Built for the touring professional, this beast contains custom EVH signature speakers for a rich tone with plenty of volume. In fact, it pairs perfectly with the 550III 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head. A scaled-down version of its acclaimed 100-watt big brother, this version is more compact yet it still has all the same excellent features. Boasting 3 channels, selectable impedance (4, 8, or 16 ohms), an effects loop and much more, the 5150II 50-Watt head is a little monster with a ferocious bite.
Now for those who are in the market for a combo, EVH has a top-notch selection and the 5150III 2x12 50W Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier is a popular seller. Made to Eddie's superior standards, this combo has two Celestian G12M speakers, three channels (Clean, Crunch and Lead) and it's powered by seven 12AX7 preamp tubes and two JJ 6L6 power tubes. Not to mention, its vintage-style chicken head controls, red jewel, recessed metal side handles and custom-shaped birch cabinet make this beauty as easy on the eyes as it is on the ears.
For an amplifier that's an ideal balance of power and tone, you've definitely come to the right place. From Limp Bizkit to The Haunted and countless others, EVH guitar amps are used by many heavy hitters in the music industry, and there's no telling what you can achieve after you plug into one. After all, these amplifiers have the seal of approval from one of the greatest guitar players of all time, so any choice you make will be a terrific one.
