Overview

The EVH 5150III 50-Watt Head is a scaled-down version of its acclaimed 100-watt big brother-the mighty 5150 III head-with 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 cabs, in addition to the current EVH 5150 III 4x12 cabinet.

It's 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. Included four-button footswitch has 1/4" input jack; also accommodates MIDI footswitching.

      Comments about EVH 5150III 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      I have this amp head in conjunction with the EVH 212 cabinet and let me tell you it does not dissapoint!. I just recently picked up a EVH red/white striped guitar to use in combination with this set up. No words!. If you want to get that classic EVH sound this is the way to go. The peeps at HC were LOCKED ON!. They were friendly, knowledgeable and went out of there way to answer my questions. I'll keep going back to the Scottsdale location because they were the best. That GC. I'll be back AGAIN!!.

        Comments about EVH 5150III 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        The EVH has excellent, crisp saturation & distortion that allows both chords AND lead to be articulate and well defined. Mere distortion pedals cannot achieve this; close, but not enough. No pedal can emulate the warmth and overdrive that this amp provides. AND the clean channel is also pretty good.

          Comments about EVH 5150III 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          It's an EVH. I own 2 wolfgang guitars and this amp. Channel one is crisp and clean. Channel 2 is all eddie tone. Warm but with bite and not over the top. Channel 3 is very over the top. Almost far too much gain but fun to rip on. Mostly stay on channel two it's more than enough. But 3 is another animal... best used with a gate. I'm running g it through a 212 orange cab with vintage 30's. Nice and warm for this setup with some g12's would add nice bite to the mix in treble. Good solid amp no doubt.. had recto's orange even the tiny terror. Peavey 5150 combo and now this. Prefer this over all. It's louder than expected and pretty heavy but seriously stop looking at reviews. yours is waiting for you so click buy it now and stop searching. The search is over. Period.

          Impressed!

          By adam horn

          from Los Angeles, Ca.

          Comments about EVH 5150III 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          I have to say first off that I am really impressed with the build quality of this amp. I own a lot of amps from various manufactures and never have I been soo impressed upon opening the box. You can just tell the craftsmanship that went into this amp, in my opinion it even surpasses Mesa/Boogie. I first saw this amp at Namm and heard several people playing through it and was impressed buy the tone. When I got mine home and switched it on I was not disappointed it really sounds great, the blue channel has a lot of soul and warmth to it. I am more of a high gain player but I am just in love with the blue channel even though it is one of the lower gain channels. The red channel is as much high gain as anyone could ever want, and very low on the hiss that seems to plague high gain amps. I am not one who hands out compliments easily But this Amp has earned it!

          EVH Kicks

          Comments about EVH 5150III 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          In the bang for the buck category you can do no better. Half the power as the 100w at half the price but still plenty loud! From the crystal clean tone of channel one to the full on scream of channel three this little pup has it all. Paired with the 1x12 cab the whole thing came in at about $1200 or so. Volume jump between channel 1 and 2 is easily handled by dropping a compression pedal in the effects chain and it controls the level, no problem. Add a bit of delay and you've got EVH tone nailed dead on.

          Glad I bought it

          from Minneapolis MN

          Comments about EVH 5150III 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          I've owned the EVH 5150III 50watt head for almost a year, and I keep liking it more and more! I am 44 years old and have been playing regularly since I was a teen, searching for the right tone and I?ve finally found it. The EVH is super responsive to my playing, and volume control. I primarily use Channel 2 (blue), and I can get full metal tones in the Eddie vein, then roll off into Stones territory, even cleaner classic rock tones if I want. I have owned great amps before (Marshall JCM800, Bogner Ecstacy, Soldano SLO100) and the EVH beats them all, for my sound anyway. I don't use channels 1 (clean) or 3 (heavy duty gain) much, but they sound very good when I've switched over. I do wish the channel switching was different though, and did channels 2 and 3 on the same circuit. I just didn't want to pay more for the 100w version that has three separate channels, and plus the 100w was way heavier. This is lightweight, looks great, and for tone (you know, the main thing), this amp is ultra versatile. Again, it's very responsive to my playing - whether I'm digging in with a pick, or lighter touches with fingerstyle, it delivers the tone that I have in my head. I'm very happy, and finally feel like my amp search is over after all these years.

          Wow!!!

          By Tim Johnson

          Comments about EVH 5150III 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          I don't know how these amps sell for so cheap (no, I don't work for GC). This 50 watt head is better than many boutique and more expensive amps I've had (and still have, but will sell soon). The 3 channels are great. There is a volume drop between channel 1 & 2 that is a bummer, but you can work around it. It has the great Fender cleans on channel 1, awesome crunch rhythm tones (and rock and blues lead tones) on channel 2 and blazing distortion on channel 3. Great effects loop too. An all around great amp that can be used for blues, classic rock, hard rock and metal. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 out of 5 is the volume drop issue, but that is no biggie.

          Best amp you can buy, rocks! Eddie put his rep on it. In Eddie we trust. The footswitch box was missing Christmas morning when my son opened his present. Will be calling the store manager tomorrow.
