Accepting PayPal ff/Venmo (preferred).



The 5150 Iconic Series Combo delivers two channels of tube-infused, EVH-style tone with a streamlined design that satisfies the needs of gigging and recording guitarists alike.

This tube amp combo covers the full gamut of Eddie Van Halen's contemporary hard rock tones, with an extra voicing on each channel for added versatility. There's plenty of sound shaping onboard, with per-channel Gain and Volume, a shared 3-band EQ, and global Resonance and Presence controls. What's more, this amp's custom-designed EVH Celestion speaker and tailor-built cabinet produce pristine cleans and articulate high-gain tones with ample low-end response.
The 5150 Iconic Series combo also includes a top-shelf noise gate, footswitchable Boost function, and high-quality reverb to ensure a dynamic performance and U.S.-prime, grade-A-stamped sound. Other features include a power reduction circuit, speaker-emulated output, dual parallel speaker outputs, selectable impedance, and an excellent-sounding effects loop. If you're craving EVH's sound, the 5150 Iconic Series combo delivers the searing tone and growling gain that EVH made famous.

Two channels of tube-fueled EVH tone
The 5150 Iconic Series combo is voiced with two JJ ECC83S preamp tubes and fueled by two JJ 6L6 power tubes, arming you with two channels of muscular hard rock firepower. Each of this tube amp combo's channels includes two voices: a Green channel for crystalline cleans or overdriven crunch; and a Red channel for fiery leads with a blistering-hot Burn setting. Each channel includes independent Gain and Volume controls for easy level matching, along with a shared three-band EQ for effortless sonic sculpting. Global Resonance and Presence knobs round out the 5150 Iconic Series combo's tone-shaping controls.

Chock-full of must-have features
Despite its streamlined design, the EVH 5150 Iconic Series combo is a gig-ready rock machine. Channel two includes a built-in noise gate, which effectively — and transparently — attenuates hiss and hum. You can churn out rapid staccato riffs all day long with zero noise between notes, and you can play long, sustaining passages without chopped-off notes. Channel two boasts a footswitchable Boost function that adds another 10dB to your signal to keep your solos front and center. The 5150 Iconic Series combo features a smooth-sounding reverb, which injects your playing with depth and dimension. You get a power reduction circuit for stadium-sized tones at bedroom-appropriate volumes, a speaker-emulated output for easy DI-ing, and dual parallel speaker outputs for no-fuss expansion. You also get a high-quality effects loop for integrating your pedalboard and outboard processors — an essential if you want to incorporate Eddie's distinctive pitch-shifting effect into your tonal palette.

Custom-designed EVH Celestion speaker
The 5150 Iconic Series combo comes loaded with a custom-designed 12-inch EVH Celestion speaker. Voiced specifically for the 5150 Iconic Series combo's preamp circuit, this speaker delivers a sonic eruption of massive proportions. Plug in, and you'll experience pristine cleans and scorching-hot high-gain tones with truckloads of clarity and articulation. This tube combo's tailor-built MDF cabinet houses internal plywood baffling that exhibits an ample — yet incredibly tight — low-frequency response that's guaranteed to add thunder to your sound.

EVH 5150 Iconic Series Combo Features:
• 40W, 2-channel, 1 x 12-inch tube amplifier combo voiced for Van Halen's latter-day tone

Well, thanks for giving it a look. Maybe you should just move here. I can hold onto it until you do! 😜
Give me about 12 years when I can retire. LOL
Plus we just moved about 6 weeks ago.

We don't plan on moving again at least until we both retire. At least I have enough room now to turn that thing up. :whistling:

I don't need it but wish I could afford the shipping...or the drive to pick it up. The Carolinas are a bit of a drive from KC though.
What's the size and weight? I've found some very reasonable shipping rates through a bulk shipper. I've only shipped guitars....average about $50 coast to coast. I can run an estimate if you like.

Sorry man, just saw your message tonight. I ran those numbers using a generic Rock Hill address to Believer's old address (he just bought a house and moved). I rounded the measurements up to whole numbers (they wanted them) and added insurance for $700 value.

Did this on Tuesday., June 7 (nite) and the projected delivery would be if the package got dropped off today...so cheapest is about $80 for 3-4 days. I have no affiliation just good experiences with them.

The guy who runs it is on TGP and he posted a link there that you can use to get his best discount, plus answers questions here:

Thanks for doing this. I'll look into it further, though I still prefer to deliver or meet up with a buyer, I appreciate your crunching the numbers.

I'm the same but sometimes you gotta ship. I'd basically given up on anything but local sales when shipping just got so expensive it made it impractical, but that outfit is reasonable enough to make it work.

Amps are tricky, esp. tube amps. I ship mostly guitars. And those have cost me @$50 coast to coast. I can work with that.

GLWS.

Thanks. I’m ready to let it sit here for a while if that’s what it takes. I may try a weekend price drop and see if that gets any attention.
