About the amp
It’s fair to say that the 5150 amp has defined both rock and metal for many years. In 2018 EVH expanded this well-established range with the new 5150 III 50W 6L6 amplifiers.
With the pure, unbridled tone from the 6L6 power tubes, these amps push out some serious power with 50W of headroom and three versatile channels – all within one small and portable enclosure! The 5150 is renowned for giving you fat, saturated distorted sounds with a slightly scooped mid-range.
We like the fact it also has an incredible top-end presence.
