Loaded with pure EVH sound and power, the new EVH 5150 III 50-watt guitar amp head is a scaled-down version of its acclaimed 100-watt big brotherâthe mighty 5150 III headâwith many of the same great features. Its smaller size and portability make it a perfect amp for players who want arena volume, tone, and performance in a compact package. It pairs perfectly with the new EVH 5150 III 2x12 and 1x12 cabinets, in addition to the current EVH 5150 III 4x12 cabinet.
The 5150 III head 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), dual parallel speaker output jacks, effects loop, headphone jack, line out, and black hardware. Four-button footswitch included.

After playing this amp I sold my Rectoverb and Fender blues. It does it all! Great Fender cleans, amazing crunch, searing lead channel and everything in between. I play a lot of different genres, from 8 string metal to Strat Surf and Blues to Gretsch Rockabilly, Downtempo and Jazz. I can dial in any tone I want with this amp and that's just covering the tone of this amp, the features are a whole other story. Hard bypass loop, headphone jack, preamp line out and all MIDI controlled. I've been playing for over 20 years and this is the 1st time I felt compelled to write a review. All around great amp!
Let it first be known, that I've been playing a Peavey 5150 II for 10 years now, and ever since purchasing it I've had little-to-no interest in any other amp. When I saw that the 5150 III was released, my ears perked a bit; but all-in-all I figured it couldn't be much different than what I already had. Then the 50w "little brother" was released, and my interest spiked. There were many times that I felt 50w would better suit the rooms I'm playing. With my 5150 II, other than in the studio, I haven't pushed the amp past 3 without killing the front-of-house engineer. My tech offered to pull two of the tubes and re-bias the amp; but I'm very OCD about mods, and this particular amp was the final gift from my grandmother before her passing, so I wanted to keep it unaltered. Well...let me just say I finally got my grubby little fingers on the 5150 III Mini today and MAN!!! Does it ever RIP!!! I pushed it up to 50% through a 75w 1x12 cab and with all the great natural breakup I had, I still had plenty of clarity note-for-note between chords and leads. Channel 1 when EQed just right has the sparkling clean Fender is known for, while Channel 2 takes you into total crunch mode even with the gain at minimal level. Channel 3 will be the love of all metalheads, loaded with high-gain sustain that will carry that final note of your lead into next century! To put it simply, I absolutely LOVE this amp!!! Edward and the people at EVH/Fender have certainly made a workhorse for the books.
