    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 !!!!

    Purchased this amp new took it out of the box and it had an inch long dent in the right side of the cabinet. It would have had to of happened at the factory because the outside box was undamaged.
    It seems to me EVH and Fender have a quality control problem with their products not made in this country I also purchased a Wolfgang Special (made in China the amp is made in Mexico) and had to send back two of those because of a defective bridge on one and a bridge pickup that did not work at all on the other. I can say the amp does work as advertised but I' not buying any more of their product.

        I have always wanted a smaller sized amp for home but with power tubes and the same punch from a half stack. This amp will do it twice as loud, twice as crunchy, and much cleaner tone than the others this size!

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

              Upon receiving amplifier, it was delivered from UPS to my front door, using a hand truck dolly from delivery person because of the weight. My only complaint about this amplifier thus far, is the actual weight. If you are into gigging, plan on needing help with this amplifier, it is that heavy. It does have casters/wheels (which actually are quite small for the weight of the amp), and possibly under rated for this amout of weight (in my opinion) and it also has side handles also. Good luck lifting this amplifier more than a couple feet off the ground without breaking your back. I am surprized that the container/package did not have any damage, seeing that it was shipped from Mexico (I think) and from all the aspects of transportation of getting it to my home in Minnesota. Once I got it out of the box and inspected it for any signs of physical damage etc., there was not even a minor cosmetic smudge or mark, which is something I was expecting as I had purchased the Ivory White amp. I did not find anything out of the ordinary. Good packaging. I just hope it operates as intended because there have been a couple reviews that stated there was damage from shipping or amplifier did not work as intended etc. I just received this amplifier and have not even plugged into to it, to try it out yet, I'll be back for a follow-up on that. Cheers!

                    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.

                    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

                      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 $$.

                        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.
