The EVH 5150 Iconic Series satisfies the needs of gigging and recording guitarists craving that powerful EVH tube tone at a more affordable price. Evolving from the revered and flagship EVH 5150II amplifiers, the Iconic amplifiers deliver the searing sound and growling gain that Eddie Van Halen made famous.
Collaboratively designed by the EVH team and led by renowned amp engineer, James Brown, the 5150 Iconic Series 15-watt 1×10 combo has a 6L6 power tube voiced by a complex, multi-stage hybrid preamp section anchored by a pair of ECC83 tubes, providing all the muscle you need for a modern-day practice amp. The cabinet features special internal plywood baffling for tight and increased bass response, and houses a custom-designed EVH 10” Celestion speaker voiced specifically for this preamp circuit, so that the pristine cleans and searing high gain tones are tight, clear and articulate.
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 fiery crunch that’s ideal for blistering leads.
Other features include a one-button footswitch, effects loop, dual parallel speaker output jacks, ¼ power switch to reduce wattage—allowing you to crank the amp and still preserve tone but without destroying your neighbor’s solitude. The 1/8” audio in allows for playing along with your favorite drum tracks or songs, while the 1/8” emulated cab headphone/recording out allows for accurate all-tube EVH tone while recording direct or using through any PA system.
