Other features include a rear-panel resonance control section that tailors low-frequency response for each channel and a bias testing and adjustment port that allows you to fine-tune the tubes with more ease than ever.

Light up the Sky

In 1979, Eddie Van Halen started a revolution with a quartet of EL34s. Today that revolution continues with the 5150IIIS 100W EL34 Head delivering lethal looks and an unmistakably ferocious EL34 tone. This head boasts three (Clean, Crunch, and Lead) channels that capture a vast tonal landscape similar in style to what can be heard on early Van Halen records, delivering signature melodic overtones with increased dynamic compression and saturation to evoke a more modern British sound, all with boundless sustain and versatility. Channel one soars with unmatched sparkly cleans and compressed tone. Channel two delivers blistering overdrive and darker, spongier tones, while channel three pushes the gain to its limits for standout leads.

Versatility at Your Fingertips

Modernized Brit Tone

There is no shortage of roaring tonal EL34 tonal swagger with this head, courtesy of its four JJ EL34 Apex Matched power tubes and eight JJ ECC83S (12AX7) preamp tubes, which sear with classic British tone that cuts through the mix with astounding mid-range clarity and crispy highs for the pinnacle of intense, high-gain performance.
