EVH 5150III 15W Lunchbox Tube Guitar Amp 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!

Gets you closer to the fabled Brown sound
Eddie’s Brown sound may be one of the most sought-after tones of all time. You get a head start on capturing that famous sound with the EVH 5150 III LBX, an amp designed in partnership with the man himself. You’ll find both the Crunch and Full Burn channels from the larger 5150 III designs. And at 15 or 3-3/4 watts, you can take those larger-than-life sounds to the stage or jam in your own home.
15 all-tube watts with a 1/4 power switch
Get a mammoth rocking guitar tone, but with all the convenience of a lunchbox sized amp head that pushes 15 or 4 watts. There is no denying the power and glory of a screaming high-wattage amplifier head. But that design is simply not a viable option a lot of the time. EVH has found a way to get the punch of their famed 5150 III amps into this EL84-loaded amp. Fifteen watts is great for almost any gig, but run the amp at 3-3/4 watts when you’re rocking out at home and near a more ear-friendly playing volume.
Built to rock hard
There are a million low-watt amps with great clean channels out there. But this is the only one designed around Eddie Van Halen’s genre-defining rock tones. But if a cleaner shade is something you’re looking for, don’t despair. Both channels clean up unbelievably well with a simple twist of your guitar’s volume knob. Even when playing through mountains of gain, its touch sensitivity and control are out of this world.
