If there's one name that should be familiar to every guitarist, it's Eddie Van Halen. Not only is he one of the best guitarists ever to pick up the instrument, he's also been the inspiration for countless other musicians to do the same - as well as for the creation of these EVH amplifiers and effects. If you want to follow in Eddie's footsteps and go down in the rock and roll hall of fame, it's a good idea to start with the right amps and effects... and EVH gear certainly qualifies as that. Whether you're interested in replicating Van Halen's tone or forging your own signature sound, these amps can get you there.
The first decision you'll have to make in this section is whether you're looking for a combo amp or a stack setup - of course, no one would blame you if you decide to get one of each, either! For your smaller venues, where portability is a priority, check out the EVH 5150 series combo amps. There are two versions to tempt you: the EVH 5150III 50W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo and the 5150III 2x12 50W Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier. Choosing between these options is as simple as picking out your favorite speaker configuration.
When you want the big power of a stack setup, EVH amplifiers come through with even more fantastic choices. You have the freedom to do it your way, if you like, by picking out your own head and cabinets. But you'll also find a few pre-matched half-stack bundles here, which make things a little easier by doing the legwork for you. There's the EVH 5150 III 100W Guitar Tube Head Ivory with 5150 III 412 Guitar Cab Ivory, for example - and you can get that stack in all-black or half-and-half, too, depending on which color combination works best for your look onstage.
Of course, EVH amplifiers and effects are more about sound than they are about looks... but that doesn't mean they can't be easy on the eyes, too. It takes a really impressive amplifier to earn the right to carry Eddie Van Halen's initials, and that's definitely what you'll find here. If you've been hesitating about treating yourself to a new amp, an EVH model is the excuse you've been waiting for to take the plunge.
