    This news is strictly for gear nerds and for Eddie Van Halen fans.

    We're about to nerd out, so… either read it and weep or move on to the next one.

    After nearly three years in development, EVH is pleased to announce the launch of the 5150III 1x12 50-watt combo amplifier. This is not your average 1x12 combo by any stretch. In line with Eddie Van Halen's legacy, this 1x12 is a true game changer, making players swear they're standing in front of a half-stack.

    The EVH 5150III® 1x12 is an all-tube combo amp, featuring three channels of pure 5150-III high performance tone (clean, crunch and lead). Fitted with a single 12-inch Celestion®, 16-ohm speaker and powered by seven JJ ECC83 (12AX7) preamp tubes and two JJ 6L6 power tubes, it also features front-panel adjustable power output from 50 watts down to one watt. The adjustable power feature is especially useful in achieving "fully cranked" sounds while maintaining reasonable overall volume levels.

    It's about to get even more real aka guitar nerdy in this next section!

    Features include a single input, rear-panel selectable output impedance (4, 8 or 16 ohms), versatile controls (gain, low, mid, high, volume, master presence, rear-panel master resonance, power level, reverb), built-in DSP reverb, rear-panel MIDI input and preamp output, two rear-panel parallel speaker outputs, rear-panel effects loop and headphone jack (mutes power amp), and four-button footswitch (controls all three channels and reverb).

    Top-notch construction features a custom-shaped birch cabinet with special and exclusive internal baffling, vintage-style chicken-head control knobs, red jewel, plastic top strap handle and casters. A fitted cover is optional. Available in Black and Ivory.



    You can find it over at EVHgear.com.
