This limited edition hand-customized EVH 5150 III 100S head is identical to the setup Eddie Van Halen has recently toured with, and features the exact same custom modifications. The head and cabinet are available individually, or together as a complete half stack.
The 100-watt head features a single input and three channels (clean, crunch, lead), each with versatile controls (volume, gain, presence, low, mid, high). Channel two features increased gain for greater sustain and is re-voiced for improved low-mid frequency definition; channel three also features increased gain and improved range for the "low" control. Further, each channel has a rear-panel resonance control knob that dials in fine-tuned low-end response. The amp boasts eight JJ ECC83 preamp tubes, four Wing C 6L6 power tubes, switchable output impedance (4, 8 and 16 ohms) and adjustable bias control. Other features include vintage-style "chicken head" control knobs, red jewel, dual speaker jacks, effects loop, direct out and molded plastic handle.
The EVH 5150III 100S Head comes in a special black "Stealth" aesthetic; and a seven-pin, fourbutton footswitch is included (controls each channel and the effects loop). Optional EVH fitted cover also available.
