EVH Announces the 5150IIIS 100S EL34 and Wolfgang Special Models

The EL34 power tubes deliver smoother contours and greater sag and saturation.

Scottsdale, AZ (June 23, 2016) -- EVH is proud to announce the all-new 5150IIIS 100S EL34 Head and matching 5150IIIS EL34 412ST Cabinet, as well as two new models to its Wolfgang Special lineup.

The EL34 power tubes deliver smoother contours, and greater sag and saturation that evoke a more modern “British” sound, all with more sustain and versatility than ever before. Channel one boasts an even finer clear-and-compressed clean tone, while channels two and three now possess even more compression and saturation.

Other features include a rear-panel Resonance control section that tailors low-frequency response for each channel and a bias testing and adjustment port that allows for fine-tuning the tubes with more ease than ever.

To complement the 5150IIIS 100S EL34 Head, EVH is adding the 5150IIIS EL34 412ST Cabinet. This 100-watt, 16 ohm matching black with gold trim straight-front 412 cabinet features a rock solid birch construction, signature Celestion G12EVH speakers, EVH casters and recessed metal handles.

Coming October 2016.

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
