EVH 5150 Iconic Series 40W 1x12 Combo, Ivory

Overview by GAK

Few guitarists are as iconic as Eddie Van Halen, who is as renowned for his incendiary tone as he is his incredible playing. The EVH Iconic series is an evolution of the acclaimed 5150III series and condenses Eddie’s powerful valve sound into a rugged and affordable package. This version of the Iconic Series is a 1x12 combo, making it a compact, all-in-one solution for gigs and recording.

Plenty Of Pedigree

The EVH 5150 Iconic Series combo was designed by James Brown, a genius amp engineer who worked with Eddie Van Halen on the original 5150. If anyone’s a true expert on Eddie’s tone, it’s James Brown. At the heart of the EVH 5150 Iconic Series combo are a pair of JJ 6L6 power valves, which are driven by two JJ ECC83S preamp valves. Armed with these impressive power and preamp sections, the EVH 5150 Iconic Series combo packs plenty of sonic firepower.

True Versatility

You have two channels at your disposal, which range from bold, pristine cleans to molten, articulate gain - Green and Red. Each channel boasts individual gain and volume controls, for effortless level matching when switching between channels, and two distinct voicings. The Green channel goes from clean to overdrive at the press of a button whilst the Red channel features a Burn mode that’s primed for red-hot leads. These extra voice modes make the EVH 5150 Iconic Series combo one seriously versatile beast, you can leave your gain pedals at home because this amp will have you covered.

Transparent Noise Gate

Channel 2 is also equipped with a transparent noise gate, which is easily dialled in thanks to a streamlined one-knob design. The noise gate’s quick attack is a very handy tool when you’re playing fast, staccato riffs at high gain settings and can keep
hiss at bay.

Hands-Free Control

Alongside the EVH 5150 Iconic Series combo, you also receive a 2-button footswitch. This nifty footswitch lets you alternate between the channels hands-free and engage a 10dB Boost when you want your solo to cut through the mix.

Tailored Speaker

A standout feature of the EVH 5150 Iconic Series combo is its built-in 1x12 cabinet. The cab is constructed from sturdy MDF with special internal plywood baffling and houses a custom-designed EVH 12” Celestion speaker. This speaker’s voice has been tailored to perfectly match the amp’s preamp circuit, resulting in a tight, clear and articulate tone with exceptional bass response.

Easy Tweaking

In addition to an effective 3-Band EQ section (Low, Mid & High), the EVH 5150 Iconic Series combo also features global Presence and Resonance controls so you can tailor your sound to the room with ease.

Crank It Up

The EVH 5150 Iconic Series combo is kitted out with a 1/4 power switch, reducing the wattage and getting the valves cooking at a much lower volume. This feature is a major advantage if you want the flexibility of going full tilt at a rehearsal or gig and still want to enjoy a cranked-up tone at home.

Ready For Effects

The high-quality Reverb effect instantly adds a lush space and texture to your tone. If you prefer to use external effects, you can hook them up to the effects loop and use them alongside the gain channels.

Modern Age

Output-wise, the EVH 5150 Iconic Series combo is bestowed with dual parallel speaker output jacks when you want to connect an external cab and a speaker-emulated DI XLR out with power amp mute. The XLR out is a huge asset to have in today’s modern gigging and recording environments, as you can experience pure EVH valve tone when recording into your interface or direct into a PA system.

Stylish Looks

There’s no doubt that the 5150 Iconic Series combo is a sleek, stylish piece of gear, with its ivory textured vinyl, black cloth front grille and silver-on-black EVH & 5150 badges. Rounding out this amp’s sophisticated aesthetic are the classic chicken-head knobs, brushed aluminium top panel and robust carry handle for easy transport.

EVH’s 5150 Iconic Series combo also comes in a striking Black. If a head and cab is more your cup of tea, the 5150 Iconic Series is available as an 80W head in Black and Ivory.

You don’t need to be an Eddie Van Halen fan to love the versatility, flexible features and gut-busting tone of the 5150 Iconic Series. Throw in an attractive price and you have one of the best road-ready guitar amps around.
