5150III® 15W LBXII Head

The EVH® 5150III® LBXII is a 15-watt guitar amp head that packs an extraordinary and powerful punch. This 2.0 version of our diminutive easy-to-carry “lunchbox” head features the famous Green and Blue channels, delivering sparkling clean tone and punchy gain to inspire unlimited artistic expression.

Armed with four ECC83S (12AX7) preamp and two EL84 power tubes, the LBXII also includes dual-concentric gain and volume controls for precise and independent control of each channel, as well as shared EQ presence and resonance controls.

Dial in a crystal clean tone or turn the gain up for a bluesier counterpart on the Green channel, and when you are looking to bring the house down, hit the one-button footswitch and select the Blue channel for a tight and compressed overdriven tone with sustain for days.

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.

Boasting exceptional construction, fierce tone and distinctive style with a black control panel and white metal grill cage with iconic EVH striped motif, the LBXII is a phenomenal performing amp.

Features

THE LITTLE SCREAMER

The EVH 5150 15W LBXII Head is a pint-sized head that packs plenty of Eddie-esque tone and attitude — from an impressive amount of gain to sparkling highs and defined bass.

This easily-portable amp head offers two distinct channels. The Clean channel (green) sings with pristine, crystal cleans or even punchy gain for bluesy vibes, while the Crunch channel (blue) hits with tight and compressed overdriven tone with endless sustain for epic 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 LBXII also has dual gain and volume controls for independent control of each channel and level matching, as well as shared EQ presence and resonance controls.

SOUND ON THE GO

Four JJ ECC83S (12AX7) preamp tubes up the ante with plenty of saturated, high-gain tone synonymous with Van Halen’s high-powered sound when pushed to the brink. Two JJ EL84 power tubes produce Eddie’s tonal attitude with a modern twist, delivering distinguished harmonics similar to early British-style tube amps.

TAP OF THE FOOT

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