EVH announces 5150 III 15W LBX
EVH has announced a new, 15W, lunchbox-sized version of its 5150 III guitar amp head.
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, this new model features two flexible channels, the famous EVH Blue “Crunch” and Red “Full Burn”. The low/mid/high/presence tone controls, a global resonance knob and a 1/4” power switch are said to make it easy to dial-in everything from subtle overdrive tones to the roaring “brown sound”.
