The EVH 5150 III 50w is all about tone. The very best tone. The EVH 5150 III 50w features three channels each of which was defined and design by the man himself: Eddie Van Halen. If there’s anyone you can trust with your sound it’s EVH, just think: for literally decades people searching for Eddie’s tone found it so unique that they had to coin a new phrase to define it: the brown sound! Eddie’s tone has always managed to juxtapose filth with clarity, warmth with defintion. The EVH 5150 somehow pulls the rabbit out the hat with a thick tone that’s creamy and warm while still sharp as a knife. No other amp has come closer to nailing that legendary sound before now!
This 50w Version is lighter on the back and the wallet than the 100w head but also means you can drive the tubes harder at the same volume for incredible saturation!
Finished in Ivory for an outrageous high contrast look!
Here’s what EVH say about the 5150 III 50w
