collapse expand iconDescription

The EVH 5150III 50W EL34 tube guitar amplifier head opens up a world of tonal possibilities for players seeking a flexible, gig-ready amp solution. Packed with features and the hallmark Eddie Van Halen sound, this amp delivers everything from sparkling cleans to face-melting distortion. Powered by EL34 tubes, the 5150III 50W EL34 produces a throaty British influenced tone with rich harmonics, increased headroom, and punchy low end.

Three fully independent channels provide a wealth of tones

The 5150III 50W EL34 features three channels—clean, crunch and lead—each with independent volume and gain controls. Dial in shimmering cleans, classic rock crunch, or blistering high-gain lead tones with the twist of a knob. A global presence control and resonance switch shape your tone even further by adjusting high and low frequency response.

Flexible features for stage and studio

Wrapped in EVH's signature black and gold motif, the 5150III 50W EL34 is a rugged road warrior equipped for any gig. It provides an effects loop, preamp out and MIDI in along with parallel speaker outs to drive multiple cabs. The built-in line out and headphone jack make recording or silent practice a breeze. A footswitch is also included to seamlessly switch between channels on the fly.

Iconic high-gain tone in a smaller package

The 5150III 50W EL34 delivers the same lethal high-gain tone and looks of the 100-watt 5150III in a more compact, lower-wattage head. Perfect for smaller venues or recording, this amp still provides more than enough power and volume for most musical applications. Experience the EVH sound and feel the excitement of plugging into an amp born from Eddie Van Halen's pursuit of the ultimate rock tone.
