5150III® 15W LBX Head

A mighty sonic force to be reckoned with, the EVH 5150III® 15W LBX is an easy-to-carry “lunchbox” guitar amp head–but don’t let its diminutive size fool you; it’s packed to the gills with searing tone!

Armed with five ECC83S (12AX7) and two EL84 tubes for incredible high gain sound, it performs like an arena-filling champ. Two flexible channels, the famous EVH Blue “Crunch” and Red “Full Burn,” combine with the familiar low/mid/high/presence tone controls and 1/4–power switch so you can easily dial-in your own roaring Variac-less “brown” sound.

Dial up a tasty crunch for rhythm work and then when it’s time for a face-melting solo, stomp on the included footswitch to call up an intense lead tone with tons of singing sustain.

For colossal tone and serious crunch in a compact package, look no further than the EVH 5150III® 15W LBX!

Features

PURE RAUNCH 'N ROLL POWER

This diminutive amp packs a sonic punch, with two distinct channels. The Blue channel delivers super heavy crunch for rhythm work, the Red “Full Burn” channel rattles the foundation with that sizzling modern Brit sound with high-gain attitude for all of your face-melting solos.

CRANK IT!

Bedroom players can utilize the 1/4-power switch to reduce the head to 3.5 watts and avoid disturbing the rest of the household, while studio and live musicians can leverage this same feature to turn up the head for a squeezed and spongy tone. The LBX also has global gain, volume, EQ presence and resonance controls.

BIG SOUND, EASY TRANSPORT

Five JJ ECC83S (12AX7) preamp tubes up the ante with plenty of saturated, high-gain tone synonymous with Van Halen’s high-powered sound. A pair of JJ EL84 power tubes produce Eddie’s scorching tonal attitude with a modern twist that boasts distinguished harmonics similar to early British-style tube amps.

TAP OF THE FOOT

Toggling from the Crunch (Ch. 1) to Full Burn (Ch. 2) is just a mere tap of your foot away with the 1-button footswitch.
