Eddie Van Halen’s EVH 5150 III Amp

In the more recent years, Eddie has been using an amp that he made in collaboration with Fender. It is an all-tube amp using eight 12AX7 and six 6L6 tubes and featuring three channels (Clean, Crunch, and Lead). The original amp was 100w, but recently, a smaller and less powerful 50w head was introduced.

One of our visitors who happens to own one of the early models (s/n 000027) was kind enough to send us some photos of the amp (thanks Brad – DrJenningsortho.com). This amp in particular was used during the 2007 tour.
