Overview

Brimming with brawny tone, the EVH 5150III 50W 6L6 212 combo is arena-sized sound in a Celestion-powered compact package for more convenient transport.

Redesigned with versatile, all-new independent dual-concentric controls that allow for gain and volume level matching, this 50-watt tube combo amp boasts three channels for any playing style— crisp cleans, raw crunch or searing leads.

Delivering a full-spectrum of tone, channel one features pristine cleans, channel two kicks in with overdrive and heavy gain similar to the EVH 5150III 100S, while channel three oozes with liquid distortion. Channels one and two each have dual concentric gain/volume controls, with shared EQ (low, mid, high). Channel three has its own gain, volume and EQ (low, mid, high) controls. All three channels also have global presence, resonance and reverb controls.

Loaded with dual 12” custom special designed EVH Celestion speakers to enhance and refine both your sound and your style, this combo amp also has seven JJ ECC83 (12AX7) preamp tubes, two JJ 6L6 power tubes and front-panel adjustable power output from 50 watts down to one watt.

Other features include a single input, rear-panel selectable output impedance (4, 8 or 16 ohms) with a pair of parallel speaker outputs, rear-panel MIDI input and preamp output, rear-panel effects loop and headphone jack (mutes power amp), and a four-button footswitch that controls all three channels and reverb for easy onstage switching.

The cabinet is constructed out of birch with special internal baffling for tight and increased bass response. Wrapped in stylish Black or Ivory vinyl, the EVH 5150III 50W 6L6 212 Combo is finished off with vintage-style chicken-knobs, red LED jewel indicator, molded black plastic top handle and pop-out casters. A high-quality fitted cover is available as an EVH Accessory.

Monster tone with more gain than I can imagine using

Comments about EVH 5150III 50W 2x12 6L6 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I've been playing guitar for 35 years and a huge Van Halen fan since day one. That said, I'm trying to keep my biases in check, but the love of Eddie's tone was my inspiration to purchase one of these combos. First, I'm really glad they updated this combo amp so that channels 1 and 2 no longer share gain and volume controls. That was such an important change, and I would not have bought the prior version of this amp. That said, I honestly don't spend a lot of time playing on channel one (the clean channel), but it does the job and I don't understand past criticisms (of the prior version) that it doesn't clean up well. Channel 2 is my favorite - classic crunch with more than enough gain if needed for my tastes, and capable of early VH tones (my favorite is actually the tone from VH's Fair Warning album). Channel 3 is the super-saturated ultra-gain channel with sustain and gain for days. I usually keep the gain on channel 3 at around two! That said, I don't usually go for over-saturation (okay, sometimes it is fun!), so my needs may be different than yours. While I like channel 3, I would actually prefer two Channel 2s, where I can have different EQ and gain settings of that voicing. It has more than enough gain for me, for either rhythm or lead, and like I said it's closer to the VH tone I'm used to. The variable power feature is also fantastic - being able to choose between 1 watts and 50 watts is a very nice feature, and perfect for people like me that primarily play at low volume settings, but still want great tone. The built-in reverb is okay, but nothing spectacular. Despite that and my preference to having two Channel 2s, I'm still giving this amp a 5 star rating, which I usually don't give out easily.

Best amp Ive ever heard

By BRIAN

Comments about EVH 5150III 50W 2x12 6L6 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

Ive had this amp at home now for a little over a week so Ive had a chance to dial in the tone and play around with it quite a bit and I can easily say it is the best sounding amp I have ever played on. Ive had a number of digital amps over the years including a Line 6 AX2/212, a Fender Cybertwin, and a Fender Mustang because I loved the simplicity of the built in effects and they all sounded great but this amp honestly blows them away. Its my 1st tube amp and the range of tones I can achieve without any added effects is just awesome. If you're on the fence about whether or not to buy it my advice would be to just get it, you will not be disappointed. The quality of the EVH products (I have an EVH Standard as well) has been superb in my opinion.
