Product Description

With a more modern British-style sound thanks to EL34 power tubes, the 5150III EL34 head yields smooth contours, great sag and saturation than heads loaded with 6L6 tubes! Independent volume and gain control for all three channels has arrived with the 5150III 50W EL34 head. Experience total control, along with the same lethal looks and ferocious EL34 tone of the 100-Watt head.

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.

"Well worth the money"

What is your opinion of this product?
The best sounding amp I've ever played through. I have all four 5150 models as well as the 3 Peavey 65 series models and this one takes the cake. With being said I think they have a wiring issue. I bought the 100-watt model first and it just stopped working on me all together within a month. Great warranty help, however. bought the 50 watts for the home studio and at about 10 hours in started popping fuses. So had to send it into warranty as well.

Sparkle, Crunch, Roar, and Scream
What is your opinion of this product?
As a lifelong Marshall user, I love British style EL34 guitar amps. They have a soul about them that their 6L6 American cousins simply don't have. Enter the EVH 5150III EL34. With gain to spare, this thing can crunch, roar, or scream. Oh yeah, it cleans up nicely too, with a full-bodied sparkle that you wouldn't expect from an EL34 amp. Channel 1, the clean channel, sounds absolutely great for funk rhythm and gives you nice single note articulation too. Channel 2 can shake the walls like a good EL34 amp can with either power chords or single note riffs. Then there's channel 3. With more gain than you'll probably ever need, it roars and screams with nearly endless sustain. Throw an echo pedal in the excellent effects loop, and your solos will sound heavenly. Sure, you could spend a lot more on a Friedman, Orange, or Marshall, but you are likely not to get hundreds more worth of performance. This amp is an absolute bargain for the price and surprisingly versatile. Highly recommended!

"Any style and sound you want...YOU GET IT WITH THIS !!!"
What is your opinion of this product?
Im a studio producer out of Nashville Tn and I bought this little "BAD BOY" about 8 months ago from AMS after playing one on a pop up gig I filled in for and its the only amp I use in my studio now...From Metal to Pop to Rap to Country this little EVH EL34 50watt is a monster... and gets any tone you want with tons of room to spare... I have heard everything from a Gretch to a Fender strat to a Gibson LP to Jackson and Dean and so many other guitars play though this head and every time this amp preforms like the champ it is... Best investment in a head I have ever made ..Thank you AMS

True EL34 tone pure beast!!
What is your opinion of this product?
As a owner of the EVH 6L6 Ivory 50 watt head I thought I had it all, until I bought the EL34 powered monster. Pure British tone with all kinds of gain, and with separate volume controls for each channel was the icing on the cake!

Believe the hype.
What is your opinion of this product?
This thing is as advertised. A gain monster. I own Mesa, Orange, and Engl products and the 5150’s red channel reaches their gain level with plenty left in the tank. Green and blue channels are extremely versatile. Overall its a well laid out amp and easy to dial in. If you are on the fence jump off and buy this

What is your opinion of this product?
Excellent amp, only downside is no master volume. Attenuator is needed to drive the amp to get a good tube tone.

Well worth the money (in my opinion)
What is your opinion of this product?
This is by far the most versatile 50 watt all tube head I've ever played. So far there's no sound i haven't been able to create.
