EVH 5150 III Head Features
  • Made to Edward Van Halen's exacting specs. This is the exact amp used in the studio and on stage by one of the only true living legends of the guitar.
  • Heavy duty hardware and construction, vertically-mounted preamp tubes with premium sockets. It’s rugged and roadworthy!
  • Custom made transformers and special biasing help achieve Edward's fabled Variable AC effect.
  • Lower-noise preamp circuitry. Less hiss & hum than many ultra-high gain amplifiers.

Indeed an incredible piece professional piece of amplification.
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

Hands down best guitar tone
Your general opinion of this product.
I love 5150's and had been waiting forever to get my hands on one of the 5153's. Literally everything i could ever want in an amplifier.
Quality is standard. Very well made modern amp. Not a super tanker like old marshall's and ampegs, but would withstand normal gigging.
BEST GUITAR TONE EVER. Imho I believe this to be the best modern amp by far. I play metal/hardcore but i know it can literally do anything. I have let pop/rock/punck/indie bands borrow it, and they had no complaints whatsoever. Great amp, and its not ungodly expensive.

Built like a tank, This puppy is huge and built with high grade quality wood..
No issue at all, the best!
Your general opinion of this product.
If your think about pulling the trigger do it!!! Worth every dime.
Thick and Heavy.
This beast does it all, dark to bright, even the clean is crisp.
The black is the best if you ask me, I wanted to sleep on it.
Easy to setup and great!

Great Sustain - Awesome Amp
I bought the Fender EVH 5150 III, with just the EVH 2x12 Cab. This is heavy duty and certainly road worthy. Just sold my JCM 800 because I no longer need it.
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.
