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.

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.

A bit disappointed...
What is your opinion of this product?
With a history of great products from EVH, I was excited when I ordered this amp, despite reading a handful of negative reviews, particularly in regards to the blue channel. Unfortunately, they turned out to be accurate. The blue channel features a dark, muddy sound that just can’t be dialed out. The clean and red channels sound great, but for the money, I just couldn’t overlook the poor sound of the blue channel. I ended up ordering the 6L6 version and was immediately pleased with the tone and versatility of all 3 channels. The punch, response, and clarity are superior as well, IMO.

Great Amp
What is your opinion of this product?
Received this last Wednesday, paired it with a Randal 2x12 cabinet with eminence legend speakers, I’m able to achieve alot of different tones from this head, and yes the brown sound is there as well. Great cleans from the green channel, put some reverb with a little compression and I can get very close to a fender clean, the Blue channel is my favorite, work the gain and you go from blues tones to classic hard rock, and the Red channel is off the chart gain no distortion box needed! Being a Marshall user since the 70’s I like the sound of an el34 amp. So far so good with this amp, I can’t say anything about reliability yet, to early to tell. Evh has a winner here!

Great VH tone!
What is your opinion of this product?
Excellent 3 channel amp. Independent volume & gain for each channel. Channel 2 has the perfect VH brown sound. The only thing that could make this amp better is reverb. Otherwise it's fantastic. I play in a Van Halen tribute band and this amp has proven to be a very wise purchase. Turns out it's also versatile enough to use with roots rock band. Worth it!

As good as I had hoped...
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought the 50-watt 6L6 head when it first came out. The new EL34 did not disappoint. Tighter than the original, not quite as “gainey”. The flexibility of independent volume control for all three channels is a big plus. To put it simply, I sold my Mesa, my original block-letter 5150, and I’m selling my Suhr modified Marshall because all I need are my two EVH heads. I can go from country to metal in an instant (and changing guitars). Do yourself a favor and try one...you will be glad you did!
