EVH has announced the release of the latest breed of 5150 amplifiers, great news for fans of Eddie Van Halen! Here's what EVH have to say:
"Loaded with pure EVH sound and power, the new EVH 5150III 50-Watt Head is a scaled-down version of its acclaimed 100-watt big brother—the mighty 5150III head—with many of the same great features. Its smaller size and portability make it a perfect amp for players who want arena volume, tone and performance in a compact package. It pairs perfectly with the compact new EVH 5150III 2×12 and 1×12 cabinets, in addition to the current EVH 5150III 4×12 cabinet.
"The 5150III 50-Watt Head is a three-channel amp. Channels one and two share EQ, with gain, low, mid, high and volume controls; channel three has gain, low, mid, high, volume and master presence and resonance controls. Other features include selectable impedance (4, 8 or 16 ohms), dual parallel speaker output jacks, effects loop, headphone jack, line out and black hardware. Included four-button footswitch has 1/4” input jack and also accommodates MIDI footswitching. The amp is available in black and ivory textured vinyl covering with black EVH-striped grille.
"The new EVH 5150III 2×12 and 1×12 cabinets are the perfect companions for the new EVH 5150III 50-Watt Head.
"The 5150III 2×12 cabinet is rated at 16 ohms and is loaded with dual 30-watt Celestion® Heritage speakers; it is exactly half the cubic size (by volume) of its 4×12 big brother, with a head-mounting mechanism and tilt-back legs. The 5150III 1×12 cabinet is also rated at 16 ohms and is loaded with a single 30-watt Celestion® Heritage speaker; it is exactly 25 percent of the cubic size (by volume) of its 4×12 big brother. Both cabinets are available in black and ivory."
