Don't let this cab, or at least the speakers get by you while they're still manufacturing them. Eddie fan or not, he clearly did the tone chasing here for most of us. If your not into signature model stuff, you still owe it to yourself to hear one, otherwise you might be kicking yourself someday. I have a feeling people will be hoarding these speakers someday and exploiting them on Ebay..No doubt it pairs well with the matching head, but wow it delivers pure Marshall bliss far better than the standard 1960a.
Features? It's a speaker cabinet...JK...Low wattage speakers, so hence no wiring for stereo or you'd blow the thing. Sharp looking and solid! Possibly the heaviest cab I have. But the magic here comes from the UK made EVH custom blackbacks. I bought it to match the 5150 iii head, as well as hopefully sound good with my Marshall JVM410, DSL100, and JCM800. Afraid I might be just buying eye candy as I already have a Marshall 1960a with standard celestions and an oversized mesa recto cab with V30s. Also was very afraid I wouldn't like it as much the mesa....all I can say is this the best cab I've heard period. It makes the Marshall's sound like Marshalls more the Marshall Cab.. It delivers all the fury of my high gain heads without giving up suprisingly..was amazed considering its loaded with 4x20 watters. I think I detected more speaker breakup out of my higher rated celestions. It arguably had the best bass response of all 3 cabs, even though its not oversized or high watt. Just sounds great pure and simple. Probably load these speakers into my Marshall cab. Don't be fooled if your afraid these lower watt blackbacks won't deliver crushing tone and volume and bass, cause they do...better than their bigger brothers in my opinion. They seem to have the unique ability to reproduce all the things we like about our high gain heads (tight strong bass, smooth midrange, and nice crunch and sparkle) without passing along the harshness and fizzyness that some cabs do.
Solid as a rock...no visible defects..well packed. Removable Casters!!
Got a great deal on a new one, but more than fairly priced with the competition at regular price. The competition might be built in the US and UK, but they have Chinese Celestions...This cab is Fender Mexico, but UK Celestions...So if that sort of thing matters to you would your rather the cab or the speakers be outsourced? Personally don't think it matters though.

      Comments about EVH 5150III 412 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

      I feel like I have to write a review due not just due to the quality of this cabinet, but also because of the misinformation there is on the internet. Don't be fooled, this cabinet is a must-have. It has the most usable low end I've found in a 4x12. I primarily play metal, anything between standard E tuning and drop B. I have struggled in the bass department with just about every setup until I came across this cabinet. I've often struggled to tame the high end coming from low wattage cabinets, but the highs are clear and articulate. It has an acoustic quality to it, very "3D"...you MUST let the speakers break in before giving up on this cabinet. If you had to place it anywhere on the spectrum, it's closer to the British side than the American side... despite being made by Fender. That being said, Marshall is robbing their customers blind with price they ask for the 1960a. This cabinet blows the 1960a away (the new ones anyway). It says a lot when companies like Friedman and Fender shame marshall. Now onto the misconceptions... 80 watt power handling. I have been playing this cabinet exclusively for about three years with my Peavey 6505+ and have had absolutely zero issues. Don't forget, high wattage tube amps serve one purpose: HEAD ROOM. At one point you drown out your drummer; and if you need more power for a big venue then you will not go without a mic. That being said: you have no reason to push this amp into blowing a speaker. If this cabinet did not have the dreaded 80 watt power handling I would bet it'd become the gold standard. However, this cabinet cannot attain the sound it has without the low wattage speakers. I still have yet to hear one negative review of my tone since adding this cabinet. Tone snobs become visibly amazed... and visibly flustered that they cannot find anything to critique. I'm a musician, not a professional gear junkie.. I find the tools I need to do my job. If you find this cabinet, like it, but hesitate over the power handling: DON'T

        Comments about EVH 5150III 412 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

        I have an ENGL Powerball II head and I went to the trouble of lugging my Powerball to Guitar Center to try different cabs from MarshalI, Orange, Black Star etc.. I decided to plug into an EVH Cab and was immediately blown away by the incredibly definition this cab was producing. My ENGL roars through it and for me it is the best match for any high gain amp. It is the last cab I will ever need period. They nailed it with this one! Had a buddy run his ENGL Ironball through it and he was blown away. He sold his ENGL cab and bought the EVH....I also have a Kemper Powerhead Profile and I run the poweramp right to this cab and you can barely tell the difference between the ENGL Powerball II sound vs the Kemper. Get this!

          Ive used the Marshall 1960 cab for many years and when i purchased the EVH 5150 III 100 watt head i considered sticking with that cab, but knowing that Eddie voiced his 4x12 cab for the 5150 head i bought the matching cab. It is a fantastic sounding cabinet, very punchy and has great projection. I am retiring my marshall 1960 cab after doing a side by side comparison, the EVH cab is a much better soundin speaker system. Cant say enough about it!!

              Comments about EVH 5150III 412 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

              I matched up against Physical Graffiti last night and just mesmerized by the flavorful tone. This is my first real BIG Cab, after playing mostly at home for 3 decades.

              For years I comprimised tone, not wanting to sell out to Marshall status quo. So, if that's your thing, which it's probably not, this Amp Cab is for you.

              This Cab is clearly the best in the business. Of course, not everyone is thrilled with EVH promotion logo. Considering he tweaked the 12H to his taste, that IMO is a good comprimise.

              The sound is FULL and FAT without comprimise. The Vintage 30 is more aggressive growl, but the Greenies just has that classic flavor. You'll get ear fatigue from the Vintage 30. Not the Greenies. To each their own.

              I only have two or three more decades vertical on this planet. I may not keep it in the retirment home. But along with my favorite Amp and guitar, this Cab will be the last to go.

              I bought used local pick up at rock bottom price, fortunately.

              Got a great deal on this used cab! It was supposed to be all scuffed up with rusting screws, but I just cant see it! Running it with the 5150 III 50 watt head is pure sonic heaven. You have to seriously consider this one if your looking for a new cab.

              Celestion G12 is awesome

              Comments about EVH 5150III 412 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

              I once had an old Marshall cab that had these exact speakers in it. My friend wanted to put his little solid state Galen Kruger head on it for a gig he was doing. His regular cabinet was something else I won't mention. But after the gig he wanted me to let him use it all the time. He freaked out on the tone. He wanted to run of with my Cab! Sorry,..."get your own" he was a little upset because his sound suffered greatly without these speakers. My EVH 5150 III sounds the way it does because of these G12's! Many guys are always trying to modify their amp head for sound when it's really a matter of speakers in most cases. I recommend staying away from Celestion T 70's. I also have another EVH Cab that I run a Marshall Vintage/Modern head with. I like running two amps for two signals with my rack in the middle. Trust me when I say that these speakers are the only way to fly. The low wattage Celestions are the best speakers in the world in my opinion. The G12T70's I had some years ago. Big difference. For me the 70 watt Celestions don't even compare to the G12's!! Take one for a test drive with your amp at the store and go the extra mile to buy it. The way they are coned is superior for that rich decay that produces that fat thick sound that supports that feedback at lower volumes. Just remember though, anything else will fall short and there will be a void. Once you use these you will feel the difference. The Cabs say EVH and thats cool and all.... but this was what he used in the 70's with VH1 album. That Plexi head and these G12s!! (Vintage marshall) I have two EVH Cabinets and I love them. It' not the head as much as the speakers most of the time. I also loop my heads with a Sonic Maximizer. But thats another story.
              I really don't know how much features one could ask for in a cabinet. I guess some switching to split the cabinet would be nice like the Marshall cabs do have. But then again I never ever use that feature on those cabs anyway so maybe thats not worth much then. No real features to worry about actually.
              The quality is industry standard as far as the construction of the boxes and the way they are wrapped. the grill cloth is cool. But the quality is the G12 Celestion Green backs. The cones have such a decay. This is the same speaker that is in the vintage 70's cabs from all the sounds of your favorite guitar heros.
              Any Amp you put on this cabinet will sound it's best. These speakers are what make the amp sound as fat as it does. Beautiful decay!! the G12 Celestions rule in my opinion. I think that the T 70's fall quite short of the superior sound we all search for in a Cab. But don't take my word for it.Take the time to go try one out at a store if you can and then you will know.

              I have owned this cab for well over a year. It gets great tones and has huge bass. My only complaint is that sometimes it has too much bass and too much mids when recording. For live purposes, this amp is amazing!

              Comments about EVH 5150III 412 Guitar Extension Cabinet:

              I have two EVH Heads. The Cabinets make the tone! Everything from the thickness of the grill cloth to the way they are back loaded within the cabinet are all part of the sound. The Green Back 20's are simply my favorite speaker of all time!! I used these speakers back in the 70's when they ran out of Black backs at the factory and used Green ones instead in my first Marshal Cabinet! Any amp will have a remarkable sound with this Cabinet. The Freq response and low end and woody rich nazal sound is something I can't ignore. Other Cabinets fall short and you will know what I mean if you run what ever amp you have through one of these.After they break in and loosen up!! "Man!!" The speakers can be many times more important than the actual amp. The speakers dictate the sound. I have a friend who has a lower end solid state amp and he used my Cabinet once for a gig. He tripped on it and now he wants to use it again and again....he got mad at me cause I wouldn't let him run off with it.
