Comments about EVH 5150III 50W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo:

Not sure what Larry is talking about in terms of the clean channel. I have an Epi Tribute plus with Gibson 57's...screams and is sweet through the evh 5150. Clean sounds incredible particularly with the neck pickup.

Best sounding combo!

By anonymous

Comments about EVH 5150III 50W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo:

This thing sounds great! Very sweet harmonic feedback!

Who purchases an EVH III for the clean channel? Ever listen to the first 4 Van Halen records? Not much clean channel. Any volume differences between channels can be compensated for by using midi to control the channel switching along with some midi signal processors. The clean channel can be made a little more to your liking with some eq and effects. But I totally agree, this clean channel is not like a Roland Jazz Chorus or a Rockman clean channel.

Not a chance

Comments about EVH 5150III 50W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo:

I owned a 5150iii 100 watt head for 2 years and loved it. I wanted to down size. We mic everything and don't need the stage volume of the half stack. I ordered one on line because they were not in store. There is zero clean channel! I mean it it is terrible. The full size head has a great clean and of course has a great high gain. Even Eddie plays clean and he can't on this amp. I also own an EVH Wolfgang USA so I love EVH just not this amp. So disappointed and I can't believe Eddie put his name on this!

      Great amp. Can't say enough positive things about this. This isn't just a heavy metal type amp or a VH amp. Each of the 3 channels sound great. Takes pedals extremely well. Love this amp.

        This amp is capable of a wide range of tones from warm to flatout inferno!

        I see reviews on here that, knock the clean tones. You can get very clean tones out of this amp. You have to take some time to work with the settings and your instrument. That said, it's not a Roland jazz chorus or a fender twin.... this amp is a fire breathing monster.... and alot more. from classic to modern, it does it all!

          Channel 1 and 2 are combined. When you get the sound you want and switch to channel 2 it's set up wrong. Channel 3 is typical saturated distortion. You can use the amp as a two channel amp. I pass on this one.

            Comments about EVH 5150III 50W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo:

            Fantastic Amp. I wanted a multi channel amplifier so I wouldn't need all the fuzz and distortion boxes and this product delivers! More gain than most people can use - I'm at 50% on channel 3 and there is enough pop and sustain just about any hard or heavy sounds.

            Channel 2 provides a great crunch for rhythm tone and drive. The only downside is channel 1 and 2 are somewhat shared and to get a true clean tone, the drive needs rolled way back on channel 1 which affects the drive on channel two. Not a deal breaker, I rarely play clean so I'm very happy with this product.

            The sealed speaker cabinet has great bottom end "chug chug" and the resonance control allows you to dial in the amount of low end which is ideal based on what guitar you're using. I back off on it with my les paul and roll it higher for my strats.

            I like that the foot pedal is quality steel with different colored lights for the each channel and reverb and the reverb quality is good IMO. The amp ships with castors that helps the mobility as this product is somewhat heavy.
