  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    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...

    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...

    A few weeks late on posting it but I finally got around to playing on it a bit this week. No big surprise that I like this one more than the 6L6 version. Have always been more of a Marshall type of guy. The other is still awesome but this one has a bit more character, I guess. Channel 1 is...

    What can I expect with the EL34 version over the regular version? It'd be the 50 watt version. Admittedly I'm not well versed on what a certain type of tube does vs. another. I've always just turned an amp on and either liked it or not. The regular 5150III 50w is pretty much perfect for my needs...

    I replaced the stock EVH Celestion speaker in my 5153 1x12 with a Celestion Classic Lead 80 - when "chugging" the notes, the CL80 has a more 'precise/clicky thump' as opposed to the EVH's 'fuzzy *****' of the chug sound. Also, the CL80 has slightly more of a lower midrange boost....the EVH is...

    Hi all, I've been looking into getting an EVH 5150III (50w head) for a while now as I will need something that has easy switching between clean/distortion and is more powerful than my 15 watt Gigmaster. The main purpose of it would (ironically) be gigging so I won't need it for a while and I...

    Got this two days ago.... I also still own a 51502 head and had an original 5150 combo: I'd post clips but my computer is ancient.... All the tightness of the first two but has a certain warmth to it which makes it a bit more pleasing to my ear. I played through a Mesa 2 x12, the EVH 2x12 and...

    Hi folks! Here's a test I recently did, I'm trying to get as close as possible to an EVH 5150III 100W head that has been recently used to reamp guitars for my band. Guitar used is a Bernie Rico Jr Hesperian 8 string with BKP Aftermaths. Original chain consists of TS808 OD -> EVH 5150III Head...

    I'm thinking about buying a used 5150III I like the lower price of the 50 but like the independent eq on all 3 channels of the 100. I know alot of you guys have this amp. I play in a metal band I have a randall rm100 KH marshall jvm410h and a new dual recto. Just wanting to round out my amp...

    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.
