Developed with guitar legend Edward Van Halen.

The 5150 lets you experience 120W of smooth crunch and dense harmonics. 5 - 12AX7s in the preamp and 4 - 6L6s in the power amp provide all the gain and tone you'll need. Includes high and low gain inputs, and the 2 channel preamp is switchable on the front panel or footswitch. The rhythm channel features pre/post gain controls and bright/crunch switches. Lead channel has controls for pre/post gain only. Channels share 3-band EQ, presence, and resonance controls. Switchable post EQ effects loop. 16, 8, or 4 ohms with preamp output. Footswitch included.

The 5150 series amplifiers and enclosures are the result of extensive research and development with guitar legend Edward Van Halen to produce the ultimate products for guitarists. With the 5150 and 5150 II heads, you'll experience super rock crunch, harmonic-rich sustain, and screaming drive like you've never heard before. Production models are identical to those Van Halen uses when recording, as well as those he currently uses on tour.
