OVERVIEW

Awesome 5150 sound, EL34 flavor and improved controls.

You asked, EVH delivered. Independent volume and gain control for all three channels has arrived with the 5150III 50W EL34 tube amp head. Experience total control, along with the same lethal looks and ferocious EL34 tone of the 100-Watt head.

The EL34 power tubes deliver smoother contours, and greater sag and saturation that evoke a more modern “British” sound, all with more sustain and versatility than ever before.

Channel one boasts a more sparkling and compressed clean tone, while channels two and three possess a slightly darker and compressed tone with even more saturation than before. Other features include a rear-panel resonance control that tailors low-frequency response for all channels, a global presence control and shared three-band EQ for channels 1 and 2 with an independent EQ for channel 3.

Wrapped in an elegant gold and black EVH motif, the EL34 50-watt head also is equipped with an effects loop, headphone jack, pre-amp out and MIDI-in.

      Comments about EVH 5150III 50W EL34 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      There are various things I really enjoy about the amp and a couple that I do not but they do not detract from the overall. First the good - color scheme, the cleans stay clean, extreme gain settings, EL34 based, easy to use and good tone across all the channels. My main gripe is that power/standby and resonance or all on the back of the amp. WHY do amp manufactures do that? Beyond that the amp is very straight forward and sounds good across all the channels. Ch1 (Green) - very clean and the gain needs to be up all the way to achieve any dirt. Ch2 (Blue) - is a really nice tone overall, I really enjoy the gain on this channel. Balancing the EQ between 1 and 2 is the trick since they share EQ. Ch 3 (Red) - HOLY GAIN! At 9oclock its more gain than some amps have in the box! The channel does stay clear even when cracking the gain but WOW! Depending on your guitar and speaker/cab 2 and 3 can get a little flubby but its knowing your other gear to make sure it does not. The FX Loop is very transparent! Check out my video play through and other videos to help see if its for you. I did a compare of the Friedman Runt 50 and the Mesa TC50 against this amp. Happy playing!

      Comments about EVH 5150III 50W EL34 50W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      I usually don't write reviews, but with this amp, I just had to. I have always been a Dual Rectifier owner, but when I tried this amp it just blew me away. The blue channel that some people criticize is actually similar to the vintage mode on my Dual Rec, but with a Marshally tone ( I actually love it). If I feel like it I use a TS 808 to tighten things up, but I find that the organic sounds it produces in the blue channel are great. Now to the Red channel, well, what can I say, it's just pure liquid distortion and extremely tight (no need for any type of overdrive here). The punch that the am sends out is just incredible. Last, but not least, the Green (clean) channel is pristine. This EL34 model is meaner sounding than its 6L6 brother. I find it much better sounding than my Dual Rec. To conclude, this amp is just awesome and versatile. I am thinking of selling my Dual Rec and purchasing the 100W version to add to my arsenal--Just because they sound that good. Trust me, it will not disappoint you. BUY IT !!
