    So I did a couple of mods to the 5150 III recently that really make the amp quite a bit better. First off, I have yet to hear anyone that likes the stock blue channel on this amp, which is an absolute shame because all the other 5150 III heads have an amazing blue channel. It's come to light...

    Week or so old but here it goes anyway, since Iron was expecting EVH Amps news :) EVH has announced new two amplifiers, the British-voiced 5150III 50W EL34 1x12 Combo and EVH 5150III 50W EL34 2x12 Combo. The 50-watt tube combo amps boast independent dual-concentric controls and three...

    Self explanatory title - what cabs or speakers have you found work best with the EVH 50w? I’m not looking for a 4x12 in any event.

    Saw this in my local GC the other day. I'd been looking for a simple amp, capable of high gain but not married to it. There were a couple of Orange Rockerverb heads in the area but the guys wanted more for them than I wanted to pay and one of them was a 100 which was more amp than I was...

    Good amp. Does anybody even use the Gain on red channel above 2 or 3? (9 o clock) because it's already distorted like hell at 3, and at 4 it begins to flubb out completely. I think it's a little higher in the video, but I will keep it at 2-3-4 most of the time I think. Anyway, that's not an...

    Hey metal heads , So I recently purchased a Mesa boogie single rectifier 50 watt head that I really like. Problem is I'm having a hard time finding the tone I'm looking for. Any setting suggestions for metal? Some bands tones I do like are Synnster gates , Matt tuck and mike Padget from BFMV...

    PRS Guitars Unveils 50-Watt Archon | 2014-08-20 | Premier Guitar Interesting. I was surprised to see how small the head is, then noticed that the 100w is small too (21" wide).

    I've been impressed as hell with the big brother, but the 50w has midi which would be easier for what I'm planning. But, I want to know how different it is to the 100w in terms of sound. I just can't find anywhere that has them in stock here.
