      Comments about EVH 5150III 2x12 50W Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier:

      I am a novice compared to most...but I know what sound I like. Played through a jcm2000....great amp! Mesa boogie express...nice but not my sound. The 5150 iii gives me a lot of different options....takes pedals well (mxr carbon copy, phase, flanger) in the effects loop. The resonance adjustment gives that extra low end boost at low volumes...love the wattage adjustment......crank up the volume and turn down the wattage to get a good tone without the wife threatening you. I play an esp ltd ec2000 and a strat deluxe.. Both sound great on this amp. This amp is very solid and well built.

      Comments about EVH 5150III 2x12 50W Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier:

      This is my second review of this product because the first one that I got was sent back because it broke. I received the replacement and when I opened the box in noticed that there was a box inside the box. The inside box was a evh box which was completely damage, so I guess musicians friend thought this would be fine sending me a broken amp for the second time. Well anyways, beyond my better judgement I took it out and plugged it in, and let me say this is what happened when I plugged it in for the first time. Channel one no power, channel two half power and channel three was ok. I wrote a email to fender looking for help, they were useless, telling they test the amp twice before it leaves the factory, ya right. Hey Eddie you do realize your name is on this product right?
      I think the some consumers are ok with getting subpar quality for their hard earned money but not me

        I love this amp. I have only one gripe and that is it is extremely noisy. I have read a lot of other reviews on this amp with no mention of the load hiss. once I get this under control it we be perfect!

        this amp produces more distortion than even I can handle...the 3 channels offer tremendous versatility; i agree with the other commenter that the reverb is a weaker feature, but still, this is overall an awesome amp for the $$.

          Comments about EVH 5150III 2x12 50W Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier:

          I'm going to keep this short and to the point.

          The tones are great on this amp, I favor them over my 100w Mesa Roadster head. That's saying something.

          This amp is LOUD!! I've had a 100w 2x12 Marshall JVM that sounds half as loud as this 50w head!! Even dialed down to 1w this thing can still rattle the wood and glass in your house.

          However, there are a few suggestions that I would make to Fender to make this amp perfect:

          1) Put an on/off for the Effects Loop on the included foot switch
          2) Fix the Standby Switch (on & off reversed, or different from manual)
          3) The digital reverb sounds a bit wonky for my tastes (but perhaps only at lower power settings)

          Overall though, I would recommend this amp to anyone considering buying one.

            This thing is Awesome ! Been a while since I've owned a tube amp ! I will NEVER go back ! Had a 5150 Peavey 212 and this one is better. The Power level knob makes this amp good for playing when everyone is asleep at home without losing any punch, unlike the old peavey which is a good amp but not as versatile as this thing. It's a solid stout amp ! Worth every penny ! I've shopped hard and played through a bunch of tube combo amps and nothing in the price range compares !!!!

If you're looking for an amp that has sparkling clean tone, great crunch, and over-the-top distortion, This is it!!! You're not going to find a better amp than this one. Buy it now!!!!!
