The EVH 5150 III 50-watt head is a smaller-sized version of its big brother, the mighty 5150 III head

Scottsdale, AZ (September 26, 2011) – EVH is excited to introduce the all-new EVH 5150 III 50-watt Head and its matching EVH 5150 III 1x12 Straight and EVH 5150 III 2x12 Cabinets, all developed to the exact specifications of legendary guitarist Eddie Van Halen.


Loaded with pure EVH sound and power, the EVH 5150 III 50-watt head is a smaller-sized version of its big brother, the mighty 5150 III head, with many of the same great features. Its smaller size and portability make it a perfect amp for players who want arena volume, tone and performance in a compact package.

The sonically powerful 50-watt head is a three-channel amplifier with channels one and two sharing EQ. Other features include the ability to accommodate MIDI footswitching, selectable impedance dual parallel speaker output jacks, effects loop, headphone jack, line out and black hardware.

The EVH 5150 III 50-Watt head works great with the current EVH 4X12 and mates perfectly with the EVH 5150 III 1x12 Straight and EVH 5150 III 2x12 cabinets. Enhancing its portability, the EVH 5150 III 2X12 cabinet features a head-mounting mechanism and tilt-bag legs. Both cabinets are rated at 16 ohms and are loaded with 30-watt Celestion Heritage speakers.

The EVH 5150 III 50-Watt head and cabinets are available in black and ivory.

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
