EVH 5150 2×12 Combo 60W Iconic Series
The EVH 5150 Iconic 2×12 Combo satisfies the needs of guitarists craving that Van Halen tone at an affordable price. Evolving from the flagship EVH 5150III® amplifiers, this delivers the searing sound and growling gain that Eddie made famous.
Collaboratively designed by the EVH team and led by renowned amp engineer, James Brown, the 5150® Iconic® Series 60-watt 2×12 combo is powered by two 6L6 power tubes. Voiced by a complex, multi-stage hybrid preamp section anchored by a pair of ECC83 tubes, it provides all the fire power the modern guitarist needs. The cabinet features special internal plywood baffling for tight and increased bass response, and houses a pair of custom-designed EVH 12″ Celestion® speakers 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. Then, the Red channel’s burn button adds fiery crunch that’s ideal for blistering leads.
Take a listen!
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. The Boost control allows you to add another 10Db of foot-switchable volume to your tone. This is absolutely perfect for ensuring your solos cut through the mix. The control panel also includes shared EQ, global resonance and presence knobs to adjust the low-and-high-end aspects of your tone. Then, there’s 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, ¼ power switch to reduce wattage. This lets you to crank the amp and still preserve tone, but without destroying your neighbor’s solitude! Plus, a speaker-emulated DI XLR with power amp mute provides EVH tone for recording or through any PA system.
Sporting distinctive EVH style, the 5150 Iconic Series 60W 2×12 combo is wrapped in either Black or Ivory textured vinyl. The black grille 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 & iconic vintage-style chicken-head knobs.
