What is your opinion of this product?
The packaging was good, what I am mostly impressed with is and I have purchased many amps over 30 years is this amplifier came with a speaker cable, which I thought was very nice of EVH, but of course most of all was the tone! Great all around from clean to heavy at the moment I am only using channel 1 and 3. Built like a Tank looks and plays beautifully little pricey, but worth every penny. Now I just have to sell my Mint Marshall JCM 900 and a 1st generation Peavey 5150 because they are no longer needed thanks AMS and EVH!

Working out great so far
What is your opinion of this product?
It's sounding great and looks great. The tubes in the last one i bought from a different distributer stopped working after a week or two so hopefully this one doesn't have the same issues.

Nice Amp - 9 Defective Cracked Plastic knobs
What is your opinion of this product?
Amp looks and sounds nice but I have 9 cracked knobs on the front. I read another guitarist mention that EVH released a run of defective plastic knobs which are brittle. I must have been lucky enough to get one from that run of amps

Great Sustain - Awesome Amp
Your general opinion of this product.
This amp is my favorite amp. The three channels with separate tone gain and presence gives so much more control than anything else I have ever used. You can go from a beautiful clean tone to a solid heavy crunch at the same volume then up a notch on the third channel to punch the leads up. This amp also has the best sustain I have ever got from any amp.

BIG BANG FOR THE BUCK
Your general opinion of this product.
I recieved 5150III head, (Along with the 5150III 4 x 10 cabinet) late on that day. i was totally excited to get it unboxed and set-up and within 30 minutes the tubes were glowing and my Mockingbird Special X was plugged in. I chose the white Head with the white cabinet and I'm glad I did. This rig is absolutely beautiful in white and saw no cosmetic defects such as scuffs or loose laminent or grill cloth. Powering up the rig gave me the sense of standing next to a drag car idling on the starting line. I could tell right away this rig was a beast!
