the perfect metal head!
dheim 18.07.2020
unlike other amplifiers, the 50W EVH 5150 mk III is designed very differently from its 100W counterpart - being much more compact than its bigger brother... the obvious advantage in handling and weight has always been balanced by a not really trivial issue: shared controls among channel 1/green (clean) and 2/blue (crunch) - that limited the amp to just two usable channels, mainly (but not only) because of the huge volume difference between clean and crunch.

this latest version solved the issue brilliantly with the use of dual coaxial controls for gain and volume - the eq is still shared but it's not a major issue.

so this amp has 3 perfectly usable channels, all selectable via the included footswitch.
- the green channel (clean) can sound very clean or slightly crunchy, depending on the gain settings.
- the blue channel (crunch) goes from a bluesy distortion to full heavy metal - many thrash and death metal players prefer to boost the blue channel with an overdrive rather than using the lead channel, so there's plenty of gain and an aggressive voice.
- the red channel is ridiculously gainy - there's no need EVER to go after 2 o clock - and doesn't really need a boost (but the classic high mid spike of the tube screamer works perfectly with it) because is both heavy and tight. i don't think that anyone really needs to read a description of the 5150 III tone, but it's raw and present, cuts perfectly through any mix... it just sounds right without any need for extensive tweaking.

as i wrote above the green and blue channel have independent controls for gain and volume, but share the same 3band eq.
the red channel has its own controls, there's no master volume but a master control for presence and resonance (the latter is on the back of the amp)
there's a footswitchable fx loop, a midi input, pre and phones outputs, 2 cabinet outputs with a switch to control the impedance.

the only missing feature is a separate eq for the first 2 channels (i don't really need it, but for someone it could be an issue) and i'd have really liked some form of LED lighting inside the case, totally unnecessary, obviously, but it would have looked cool!

Sehr zufrieden mit dem Amp
Andy - Deep Throat 06.09.2018
Ich habe mir den EVH 5150 MK 3 50 Watt vor einigen Wochen direkt im Thomann Shop in Burgebach gekauft und muss sagen ich bin rundum zufrieden mit dem Amp.

Bewertung Amp:
Da ich in einer Hardcore Band spiele wollte ich mir einen High Gain Amp zulegen, der meinen Ansprüchen gerecht wird.
Die Leistung von 50 Watt bzw. die Lautstärke in Kombination mit der 2 x 12 Box, hat mich wirklich positiv Überrascht. Man bekommt einen kraftvollen und deutlichen Sound in allen Kanälen.
Völlig ausreichend für Bandproben und live Gigs.
Wenn man sich den Amp genauer ansieht, kann man erkennen, dass dieser wirklich gut verarbeitet ist. Er ist mit einer Art Leder überzogen, der pflegeleicht und an den Ecken durch extra Kappen geschützt ist. Die Potis sind fest angebracht und lassen sich gut bedienen. Durch Metalschienen lässt sich der Amp ganz einfach mit der 2x12 Box verbinden.
Im Paket enthalten waren der Footswitch, ein Netzteil und ein Kabel vom Amp zu Box. Diese sind Qualitativ sehr Hochwertig.
Einen direkten Anschluss für ein Effektgerät findet man auf der Rückseite. Dieses kann man über den Footswitch aktivieren.

Kleines Aber:
Empfehlenswert für diesen Amp ist ein extra Noise Gate, da es beim aufdrehen der Lautstärke im 2. und 3. Kanal zu lauten Störgeräuschen kommen kann (Aufgefallen beim spielen mit meiner Gibson Les Paul Studio).

Fazit: Das Preis- Leistung ? Verhältnis ist wirklich sehr zufriedenstellend. Meiner Meinung nach ist der Amp für Punk und Hardcore Bands gut geeignet. Ebenfalls dazu empfehlen kann ich euch das passende Case, das den Amp durch extra Polsterung super schützt.

High gain beest
Mrtnkrz 12.11.2019
De ultieme top als je van een strak en gefocussed distortion geluid houd. Wat mij betreft niet optimaal voor clean maar dat is met een galm/delay pedaaltje snel te verhelpen. Veel opties voor het klein formaat, top is erg handzaam.

An heavy little monster!
MJoseph 22.06.2020
To use in studio and live gigs. Great power and amazing usability from the 3 channels for different styles.
The on/off switch as on other EVH amps is located on back which in some situations can be a negative point.
