SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (January 24, 2018) – EVH® is proud to introduce a number of new items for 2018 including the refreshed 5150III® 50W 6L6 Head,5150III® 50W 6L6 112 and 5150III® 50W 616 212 Combo amps, the Wolfgang® Special Striped Black and White, a pair of left-handed axes in the Wolfgang® Special LH and EVH® Striped Series LH R/B/W, plus additional color options.
With its smaller size and portability, the new EVH® 5150III® 50W 6L6 Head is the perfect amp for players who want arena volume and performance in a compact package. Three channels of road-tested sound work for any playing style— crisp cleans, raw crunch or searing leads, while newly added independent dual-concentric controls allow for gain and volume level matching.
This 2.0 version of the popular EVH® 50-watt head delivers a full-spectrum of tone — channel one powers crystal-clear clean tone, channel two ranges from chunky overdrive to tight distortion, and channel three oozes with liquid gain. Channels one and two each have dual concentric gain/volume controls, with shared EQ (low, mid, high). Channel three has its own gain, volume and EQ (low, mid, high) controls. All three channels also have global presence and global resonance controls.
This amp head also includes selectable impedance (4, 8 or 16 ohms), dual parallel speaker output jacks, effects loop, headphone jack, line out and a four-button footswitch with 1/4” input jack and MIDI input.
Loaded with pure EVH® sound and power, the EVH® 5150III® 50W 6L6 Head is wrapped in Black or Ivory textured vinyl and features the instantly recognizable black EVH®-striped steel grille. A high-quality fitted cover is available as an EVH® Accessory.
Brimming with brawny tone, the 5150III® 50W 6L6 112 Combo offers arena-sized sound in a Celestion® powered compact package for more convenient transport.
Similar to the 5150III® 50W 6L6 head, this tube combo amp has been redesigned with versatile, all-new independent dual-concentric controls that allow for gain and volume level matching.
Delivering a full-spectrum of tone, channel one features pristine cleans, channel two kicks in with overdrive and heavy gain similar to the EVH® 5150III® 100S, while channel three oozes with liquid distortion. Channels one and two each have dual concentric gain/volume controls, with shared EQ (low, mid, high). Channel three has its own gain, volume and EQ (low, mid, high) controls. All three channels also have global presence, resonance and reverb controls.
This combo comes loaded with a 12” custom special designed EVH® Celestion speaker, seven JJ ECC83 (12AX7) preamp tubes, two JJ 6L6 power tubes and front-panel adjustable power output from 50 watts down to one watt.
Other features include a single input, rear-panel selectable output impedance (4, 8 or 16 ohms) with a pair of parallel speaker outputs, rear-panel MIDI input and preamp output, rear-panel effects loop and headphone jack (mutes power amp), and a four-button footswitch that controls all three channels and reverb for easy onstage switching.
The cabinet is constructed out of birch with special internal baffling for tight and increased bass response. Wrapped in stylish Black or Ivory vinyl, the EVH® 5150III® 50W 6L6 112 Combo is finished off with vintage-style chicken-knobs, red LED jewel indicator, molded black plastic top handle, and pop-out casters. A high-quality fitted cover is available as an EVH® accessory.
The 5150III® 50W 6L6 212 shares all of the fine characteristics and features of the 112 combo, but comes with dual 12” custom special designed EVH® Celestion® speakers for an extra added punch.
