EVH 5150 Iconic Series 40W 1 x 12 Combo, Two-Channel, Reverb, Electric Guitar Amplifier (Black)

The EVH 5150 Iconic Series 40W 1 x 12 Combo Guitar Amp in Black 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 groundbreaking career.

Custom Designed EVH 12-Inch Celestion Speakers

Designed by renowned amp engineer, James Brown, the 5150 Iconic Series 40-watt 1 x 12 combo is powered by two 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. The cabinet is constructed out of MDF with special internal plywood baffling for tight and increased bass response, and houses a custom-designed EVH 12-Inch Celestion speaker voiced specifically for this preamp circuit so that the pristine cleans and searing high gain tones are tight, clear, and articulate.

Two Channels

Punching above its weight, this combo features two channels with an extra voicing on each for even more versatility. The Green channel boasts an overdrive button to run from 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.

Controls

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.

Multiple Features

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.

Sophisticated Style

Sporting sophisticated and distinctive EVH style, the 5150 Iconic Series 40-watt 1x12 combo is wrapped in Black textured vinyl with a black cloth front grille and features silver and black 5150 and EVH logo badges in the upper left and lower right corners. This all-tube combo is finished off with a brushed aluminum top panel, vintage-style chicken-head knobs, 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 40W 1 x12 Combo 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

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 two 6L6 power tubes up the ante with plenty of saturated, high-gain attitude synonymous with Van Halen. A single 12-inch custom-designed EVH Celestion speaker has been voiced specifically for this preamp circuit, so that the pristine cleans and searing high gain tones are tight, clear, and articulate.

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.
