EVH Announces the 5150III LBX

The amp sports two flexible channels: the famous EVH Blue “Crunch” and Red “Full Burn.”

Scottsdale, AZ (November 6, 2015) -- Don’t let the size of the new EVH 5150III 15W LBX guitar amp head fool you. The easy-to-carry “lunchbox” head is a sonic behemoth that is packaged with tons of massive tone and crunch.

With five JJ ECC83S (12AX7) and two JJ EL84 tubes – for incredible high gain sound – it performs like an arena-filling champ. Two flexible channels, the famous EVH Blue “Crunch” and Red “Full Burn,” combined with the familiar low/mid/high/presence tone controls, a global resonance knob and a 1/4” power switch make it easy to dial-in everything from subtle overdrive tones to the roaring Variac-less “brown” sound.

“This is one bad ass little amp…a beast in a box!” said Eddie Van Halen.

The amp head also includes a footswitch that allows you to effortlessly switch between channels.

The 5150III 15W LBX will be available online and in select dealers this month.

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
