Sound like Eddy for a mild budget

07.02.2016
If you are on a budget and want to sound like Eddy, well you can't go wrong with this item. It is very well build and has great features such as the noise gate and boost. Hook up an EVH striped series guitar and you've got yourself a great match.

The Distortion / Amp Simulator

Dan Hil, 11.07.2018
After a few different distortion in the trial run and this always on the same amp (Budda V40), the EVH 5150 Overdrive has now performed best.
For testing, among other things, a Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe V2 was available.

For processing: MXR quality - all top. Anyone who already owns an MXR knows the quality of this product.

Sound: It bangs, it's wide and yet the individual notes remain differentiated in fast solos.

In contrast to the Wampler or a Lovepedal Purple Plexi this sounds not dull but rather not so shrill. Okay Purple Plexi is supposed to depict something else. Nevertheless, the 5150 has some more pressure and sounds (in my ears) "modern". Turning the middle of this distortion creates a very "modern" sound. Meaning that the center control works very well and the sound can be adjusted very well.

He does not want to marry, he wants to sing! And that's exactly what he does.

Furthermore, this device is very fine on the settings of the Volumenpoti on the guitar and it sounds good too.
I just used the 5150 overdrive in front of a clean channel and I think that's the way it works best. So he extends the amp to another channel with a very well functioning gate.
Unfortunately, the boost function can not be activated with the foot. However, I did not need this to my amp, since the sound is already very strong anyway.

Compared to the Wampler Pinnacle, the EVH 5150 has overdrive: more bass, just more stuff.
This also sounds better when turning back the volume pot on the guitar. And he is better at the dynamics of the game and feels more "real". In addition, the 5150 Overdrive has a well-functioning adjustable gate.
The sound is a matter of taste (such luck, otherwise we would all sound the same) I liked personally but better with the 5150 Overdrive in combination with the Budda V40 (have not tried another amp).

Advantage or disadvantage: The Pinnacle has even more settings, this is also a matter of taste.

In addition, the Pinnacle Deluxe V2 has a boost that can be activated with the foot. Unfortunately, the EVH Overdrive does not have ... why not, MXR?

To briefly mention the Budda V40: This does not sound modern and is not a highgain monster, even if it has a lot of gain reserves. He sounds more classic. With the 5150 Overdrive it was-as desired-nothing more to hear.

This as a positive conclusion: If you are looking for a decent distortion in front of an otherwise good sound amp is certainly well advised and should definitely consider this distortion. Even if the booster is missing, the sound etc. made up for this shortcoming. Apart from that, there are also good individual boosters, where you can also choose where you bring these in the effects chain.

What else to mention: I liked from the beginning the sound of the Peavey / EVH 5150 amplifier. That's why I came to this overdrive at all.
