EVH 2257400010 5150 Iconic Series 80W Amplifier Head with Green and Red Channels (Black)

The EVH 2257400010 Iconic Series 80W Amplifier Head satisfies the needs of gigging and recording guitarists craving that powerful EVH tube tone, but at a more affordable price. Evolving from the revered EVH 5150III amplifiers, the Iconic Series delivers the searing sound and growling gain that Eddie Van Halen made famous throughout his ground-breaking career. Designed by renowned amp engineer, James Brown, the 5150 Iconic Series 80W Head is powered by four 6L6 power tubes and voiced by a complex, multi-stage hybrid preamp section anchored by a duet of ECC83 tubes providing all the firepower the modern guitarist needs in a simple to use format.

Mechanism

This head features two channels with an extra voicing on each for even more versatility. The Green channel boasts an overdrive button to run from lush clean tones to increased gain, while the Red channel’s burn button adds a fiery crunch that’s ideal for blistering leads. Each channel houses its own gain and volume controls, allowing for level-matching the volume when switching between the clean and high gain channels. The channel two noise gate’s quick attack suppresses any hiss while ensuring all staccato riffing is articulate and crisp, not choked and choppy.

Boost Control

The Boost control allows you to add another 10Db of foot-switchable volume to your tone perfect for ensuring your solos cut through the mix. The control panel also includes shared EQ (Low, Mid, and High), global resonance and presence knobs to adjust the low- and high-end aspects of your tone, and a global reverb control to add the perfect amount of bounce and decay for any room. Other features include a two-button footswitch, effects loop, dual parallel speaker output jacks, 1/4 power switch to reduce wattage allowing you to crank the amp and still preserve tone but without destroying your neighbor's solitude, and a speaker-emulated DI XLR with power amp mute for accurate all-tube EVH tone for recording direct or using through any PA system.

Construction

Sporting sophisticated and distinctive EVH style, the 5150 Iconic Series 80-watt head is wrapped in Ivory textured vinyl with a brushed aluminum front panel and black steel grille featuring silver and black 5150 and EVH logo badges. This head is finished off with vintage-style chicken-head knobs, a red LED jewel indicator, and molded black plastic top handle. A high-quality fitted cover is available as an EVH Accessory.

Searing Sound and Growling Gain

The 5150 Iconic Series 80W Head delivers the culmination of Eddie’s life-long chase for the holy grail of tone-searing sound and growling gain at an affordable price. Two channels combine to deliver pure tube power that can deliver across any genre. The Green channel boasts an overdrive button to run from lush clean tones to increased gain, while the Red channel’s burn button adds fiery crunch for blistering leads.

Take Command

The tone for days is yours for the taking with a comprehensive control layout. Independently dial-in volume and gain for Ch. 1 and 2 for level matching. Ch. 2 features a noise gate control to suppress any hiss while ensuring all staccato riffing is articulate and crisp, not choked and choppy. Shared EQ controls allow you to adjust Low, Mid, and High. A global presence knob creates full control over ultra-high frequencies, while the global resonance knob adjusts the power amp’s low-frequency response. The Boost control allows you to add another 10Db of foot-switchable volume to your tone.

Pure Tube Power

Two ECC83 preamp tubes erupt with mega-overdriven tone when pushed to the max, while four 6L6 power tubes up the ante with plenty of saturated, high-gain attitude synonymous with Van Halen.

Bounce and Decay

Adjust the Reverb control for the right amount of bounce and decay for any room.

Behind the Scenes

This amp also features a 2-button footswitch that allows you to quickly toggle between the channels or engage the boost button. A speaker-emulated DI XLR (line out is located on the rear panel) with a power amp mute allows for accurate all-tube EVH tone for recording direct or using through any PA system.
