Have you always coveted that iconic high-gain guitar sound of Eddie Van Halen's 5150 guitar amp, but were you never able to make room in your budget or flat for one of those powerful tube heads with a 4x12 speaker cabinet? MXR has captured the legendary 5150 power in a single compact stomp box: the MXR EVH 5150 Overdrive.
EVH 5150 Overdrive: authentic sound
5150 guitar amplifier is known for its heavily saturated tone and tight bass. No wonder it's the amp of choice for many hard rock and metal guitarists. With a little help from MXR, though, it is now possible to turn your own amplifier into the same type of high-gain powerhouse. Their EVH 5150 Overdrive was developed in close collaboration with Eddie Van Halen himself, and as such, the effects pedal delivers an authentic reproduction of his legendary sound.
A practical stomp box
Thanks to a number of clever features, the 5150 Overdrive has everything you need to produce a powerful sound on stage or in the studio. In addition to the usual output, gain and three-band equalizer, this stomp box offers a boost function than delivers an extra dose of gain and compression. The pedal's gate, which was modelled after the MXR Smart Gate, reduces unwanted noise to a minimum. From subtle overdrive to serious shreds, the MXR EVH 5150 Overdrive
makes it all happen!
