Overview

Designed in close collaboration with living legend Eddie Van Halen, the 5150 Overdrive puts Eddies full range of distortion right at your feet. This pedals full complement of controls will take you from the groundbreaking tone heard on early Van Halen records to the high gain, super-articulate sound he uses today. After setting the Output and Gain controls where you want them, use the 3-band EQ section to shape and customize your sound. For the bumped up gain and compression Eddie digs, just hit the Boost switch. Finally, use the Gate control to engage the 5150 Overdrives noise gate, active only while the pedal is turned on. The 5150 Overdrive features true bypass switching comes in a road-worthy housing emblazoned with custom EVH artwork.

A great all-in-one OD / Distortion

By Grunge Monkey

from Erie, PA

Verified Buyer

Comments about MXR EVH 5150 Overdrive Guitar Pedal:

You can dial in a lot of different sounds. If you are looking for the 'brown sound', look no further. Good gritty bite to the distortion, easy harmonics and squeals all over the fretboard. A lot of fun to play around with.

A great overdrive

By ScruffMcDuff

from Fayetteville, Arkansas

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Easy to use.
  • Sounds great.
  • Versatile

Cons

  • may not fit into standard pedal board

Best Uses

    Comments about MXR EVH 5150 Overdrive Guitar Pedal:

    This is a great overdrive pedal. I always trust the EVH brand due to Eddie's meticulousness. It is very easy to use and has a very good range of sounds along with it. Also the built in noise gate is perfect, as overdrive always has a bit of hiss. It works well with other pedals, and can give you a nice crunchy sound or just thick distorted tone. Highly recommended to anyone trying to get that EVH tone going.

    One word Awesome

    By Phil

    from Houston, Texas

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about MXR EVH 5150 Overdrive Guitar Pedal:

    Great sound - lots of gain bit still with clarity - but for clean channel only. I use this on my Marshall DSL-100 and its right on the money for heavy rock and metal.

    Pros

    • No more stacking peals. Gate eliminates noise

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about MXR EVH 5150 Overdrive Guitar Pedal:

        I had been stacking drives trying to achieve this sound and picking up a lot of noise along the way. This pedal does it all and the Gate built in the pedal works great at eliminating that hiss between songs. You might see some youtubers complaining about the price but its spot on worth it. think about it....2 or 3 drives and a noise filter. This does it all.

        this is right pedal, the only overdrive I need

        By randy poznan

        from Chicago area

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about MXR EVH 5150 Overdrive Guitar Pedal:

        The only pedal I own is this one. I'm real glad I bought this instead of another amp. Really makes Deluxe Reverb sound like 5150 amp. Almost too much gain for one of my guitars experienced feedback. I have other guitars or turn it down either way its fine. I like playing through it for practice too has amp turned up sound i like at a lower volume.

        articulation

        By pholange

        from albuquerque

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • ease of use
        • tonal clarity
        • tonal control

        Cons

        • expensive

        Best Uses

        • enhance less expensive setups
        • exploring EVH's tones
        • hot rodding a solid state
        • noodling
        • tone experimentation

        Comments about MXR EVH 5150 Overdrive Guitar Pedal:

        a fun way to chase after the EVH tone, if that is what you are interested in. but really is great as a means to creating a well defined, but powerful overdriven tone. it ups the articulation of my setup immensely, regardless of the settings. the noise gate is outstanding. overall, just a great tool for enhancing ideas that may be knocking around inside your head.

        Be Real

        By old timer

        from el sobrante, ca

        Comments about MXR EVH 5150 Overdrive Guitar Pedal:

        If you think you're going to plug in a single coil and/or a small open back combo and sound like Eddie, be realistic! But plug a humbucker (with a FR) through a 50 or 100 watt and a closed back 2x12 or 4x12, push some air, and you'll get what you're after. The gate works well and is necessary.

        EVH 5150 pedal

        By Jammin John

        from Mission Viejo, Ca.

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about MXR EVH 5150 Overdrive Guitar Pedal:

        The 5150 pedal sounds great with almost any amp. Chords sound great, full and well overdriven; but individual notes, when playing lead, tend to sound a little loose and fuzzy, almost as if playing through a solid state amp. However, this may also depend on the amp you're using. Better to get the 5150-50watt amp instead:)
