Compact Design, Mighty Volume
The 5150III 50S 6L6 Head provides massive, stage-dominating volume encased in a lightweight frame. Its two Shuguang 6L6s, replacing the traditional JJ tubes, radiate an impressive 50 watts adaptable to 16-, 8-, or 4-ohm loads. The ideal partner to EVH’s range of cabinets, this head’s volume belies its wattage, promising a sound that fills venues with ease.
Three Channels, Infinite Possibilities
Dive into a vast palette of tones with the three revamped channels. Channel 1 brings back the Sparkle Clean setting, delivering lucid chime, while Channel 2 boasts increased gain for a fuller, more intense crunch. Channel 3 is a haven for high-gain enthusiasts, perfect for those iconic, hard-hitting riffs and searing solos. The controls, from the Resonance and Presence knobs to the distinct 3-band EQs, ensure your tone is always on point.
