EVH 2253060000 5150III 50W EL34 Tube Head with Dual Concentric Controls and 3 Channels (Black)

Independent volume and gain control for all three channels have arrived with the EVH 2253060000 5150III 50W EL34 Tube Head. You can experience total control, along with the same lethal looks and ferocious EL34 tone of the 100-Watt head. The EL34 power tubes deliver signature harmonic overtones, with more dynamic compression and saturation that evoke a more modern British sound, all with the sustain and versatility expected from EVH 5150III amps. 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.

Mechanism

Channels one and two each have dual concentric gain/volume controls, with shared EQ (low, mid, high), while channel 3 has an independent EQ. Other features include a rear-panel resonance control that tailors low-frequency response for all channels and global presence control. 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.

Ferocious EL34 Tone

In 1979, Eddie Van Halen started a revolution with a quartet of EL34s. Today that revolution continues with the 5150III 50W EL34 Head delivering Lethal Looks and Ferocious EL34 Tone. It's three (Clean, Crunch, and Lead) channels capture a vast tonal landscape similar in style to what can be heard on early Van Halen records, delivering signature melodic overtones with increased dynamic compression and saturation to evoke a more modern British sound, all with boundless sustain and versatility. Channel one soars with unmatched sparkly cleans and compressed tone. Channel two delivers blistering overdrive and darker, spongier tones, while channel three pushes the gain to its limits for standout leads.

Versatility at Your Fingertips

The 50W EL34 Head features dual concentric controls that allow you to independently dial-in volume and gain for Ch. 1 and 2 for level matching. Ch. 3 has its gain, low, mid, high, and volume dials. A global presence knob on the front panel creates full control over ultra-high frequencies, while the rear global resonance knob adjusts the power amp’s low-frequency response.

Modernized Brit Tone

There is no shortage of roaring tonal EL34 tonal swagger with this head, courtesy of its two JJ EL34 Apex Matched power tubes and seven JJ ECC83S (12AX7) preamp tubes, which sear with classic British tone that cuts through the mix with astounding mid-range clarity and crispy highs for the pinnacle of intense, high-gain performance.

Behind the Scenes

This amp also features a MIDI rear panel input, which allows you to directly connect a digital effects interface and sync your tone to your favorite patch for even more tonal variance, a headphone jack, and a 4-button footswitch that allows you to quickly toggle between the channels or engage the effects loop.
